We just sent the film out to reviewers and the positive notices are starting to come in! Check back here for the newest reviews!

Mr Tony of the Dead: “Spoiler: this film is terrific!”

Beneath the Underground:  “ Shivers Down Your Spine packs enough fun and entertainment to make it one of the strongest anthology entries in recent years.”

Horror Society:Shivers Down Your Spine is one of the funnest movie experiences I have had in awhile.  The film has laughs, drama, blood, slashers, and boobs.  My god, does it have boobs.  This is one film that you will have to see.”

The Blood Shed: “This film is everything we love about indie horror, a must see for horror fans, and is a great example of why horror anthologies need to make a comeback.”

We Live Film: “This is a highly creative, well thought-out, and just FUN, FUN, horror anthology!”

Adam The Movie God: “Do yourself a favor and buy a copy…as soon as it becomes available.”

HorrorNews.Net:Shivers Down Your Spine is a masterpiece in its category”

The Movie Waffler: “Audiences should watch Shivers Down Your Spine – with its variety of ideas, bare enthusiasm and value for money, it’s a welcome addition to the horror anthology format. Schlocky and scary fun.”

Movies Galore: “I give this anthology an overall 4 out of 5 stars and thoroughly recommend that when this comes out you by it!”

Erebus Horror: “It’s Bloody Brilliant!”

Body Count Rising: ” I found Shivers Down Your Spine to be a pretty enjoyable anthology. I’ve seen much worse from large studios and production companies. Everyone involved in the project should feel proud of what they accomplished.”

In the Audience: “If you enjoy indie anthology films, and even with the tiny budget, I strongly recommend Shivers Down Your Spine.”

Blood Sprayer: “What Shivers Down Your Spine does deliver on is an excellent range of stories. Just as they promise in the synopsis, viewers really will find something for everyone. A couple of the stories really go all out with creativity and originality, rather than just relying on stock horror stories… which is great.”

B-Movie Bunker: “What they had to work with they make it count. This was an enjoyable mix of shorts.”

Biscutbuu: “8 out of 10. The best horror anthology of the past few years!”

Greg the Movie Guy: “There were so many more little excerpts from the Shivers Down Your Spine anthology that I encourage you to not stop your consumption at my reviews. These spotlights were merely great stories in a mix of equally great stories which stood out for me.”

Mr Parka: “This one is worth your money!”

Night of the Living Podcast: “As Jules Winnfeld said to Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction, “Personality goes a long way.” Shivers Down Your Spine has tons of personality.”

Movie Deputy: “Allow yourself to be captivated by the pure magic that lies within!”


Shivers Down Your Spine is a film anthology from Dead Lantern, hearkening back to the horror anthologies we all loved as kids, but with some modern twists.

Road Trip Cast Announcement!

As many of you know, about a year ago we finished the critically acclaimed microbudget horror anthology SHIVERS DOWN YOUR SPINE. Now, we’re pleased to announce that filming of the sequel, CHILLS DOWN YOUR SPINE is well under way. A couple months back we shot BLOOD MODEL and now we’re diving into the wraparound device, titled ROAD TRIP and will bring Jeff, Sabiah, and a cast of new and returning characters from SHIVERS back to the big screen. Filming begins January 13th, 2017.

You can follow along with the production on the Prairie Lights Productions Tumblr page or the Dead Lantern Pictures tumblr page. Also, like us on facebook and subscribe to our Youtube channel.

ROAD TRIP picks up 3 days after the events of SHIVERS DOWN YOUR SPINE. Jeff finds a brand new genie lamp. Much to his chagrin, rather than Sabiah, he finds her ditzy blonde twin sister Mahktoonah! Together, they go on an epic road trip where Jeff will have to find his inner hero as they encounter ancient gods and monsters on their way to save Sabiah, who has been found by a sadistic torturer!

Below are the actors cast. Can’t wait to work with all of these great people again!
