      Additional info:
      Danielle Harris (“Halloween”, "Hatchet“, Stake Land”) stars as Wendy Alden, a young secretary terrorized by a savage killer who finally finds the resources of courage to confront the monster of her living nightmare. John Jarratt (“Wolf Creek”, "Django Unchained") co-stars as the psychotic killer, Franklin Rood whose unique performance is frightening, creepy and mesmerizing.
      Casper Van Dien (“Starship Troopers”, "Sleepy Hollow", "The Omega Code") co-stars as Detective, Sebastian Delgado. Cult favorite, Rae Dawn Chong ("Commando", "The Color Purple") and Golden Globe winner, Valerie Harper "Blame It On Rio" are featured in supporting roles. Iconic action star, Brad Harris ("Hercules" is executive producer and guest stars as "The Captain". Actress-model Nikita Esco ( one of the screen’s most exciting new personalities) makes her screen debut as Rood’s first victim in the harrowing opening scene of the movie. Renowned composer, Richard Band ("ReAnimator") has written and orchestrated the score which many have described as simply “awesome”.
      RAINDANCE, in its write-up about SHIVER states that: “The tension and gore factor are ramped up from the word go. The murders are brutal, relentless and unflinching. Rood, the killer is as clever and complex as Hannibal Lector and as unstoppable as Michael Myers. His seemingly normal façade, and his warped attempts at engaging Wendy in conversation are chilling, reminding us that such people can and do live among us. The reveal of his terrible depravity is an ingenious and truly macabre masterpiece of theatrical grand guignol.”
