SHIVERS is the first feature film by director David Cronenberg (SCANNERS, VIDEODROME) and is arguably the first example of the genre known as body horror (ALIEN, THE HIDDEN, THE BROOD, etc).
The premise follows a mysterious parasite, which can enter a person's body and unleash their bizzare sexual desires. SHIVERS brings to mind movies like NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS and mixes them with a distinctly sleazy 1970s feel. The film stars cult actresses Lynn Lowry (I DRINK YOUR BLOOD) and Barbara Steele (CAGED HEAT, BLACK SUNDAY)
