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

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.”

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.”

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.”

Horror Underground: “Don’t be afraid of its micro budget, this is one badass film that restores my faith in anthology horror.”

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.”

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.”

Shivers Down Your Spine: Episode 5 – A BAD HEART

It's only 8 months late!

Here's A BAD HEART, written by our great friend Tony Crupmton (Professor Bleak). We premiered it at Osfest yesterday to great reception. Hopefully you all dig it, too! Please subscribe to our youtube channel and leave some feedback.

This film stars Christina Olson as Jane, Dailen Cowden as Peter, and Mark Popejoy as The Cupid Killer. Heather Waite with Evil Forest FX did the blood and guts, and Richard Stripling, Jr. of Nifleheim Soundscapes did the score.

Coming soon, MIDNIGHT KISS, starring Ellen Gould, Chris Muckey, and our very own, Steve Eaton.


Screenshots for MIDNIGHT KISS

We shot MIDNIGHT KISS today, the next installment of Shivers Down Your Spine. If all goes well, you’ll be seeing it here on Tuesday. It stars Ellen Gould, Chris Muckey, and our very own Steve Eaton. Big props to Jeff and Tina for letting us use their home and to Deejay and Heather for the hard work and FX, respectively. ONLY 2 DAYS UNTIL YOU SEE STEVE DIE!

Check out our tumblr page for more screenshots.

A BAD HEART wraps!

A BAD HEART, our Valentine’s Day SHIVERS DOWN YOUR SPINE episode has wrapped! It was a long, grueling shoot (isn’t it always?) but we soldiered through a 16 hour day and having to deal with the Whore Cheese to get it knocked out!

A gigantic thank you to our actors: Christina Olson, Dailen Cowden, Mark Popejoy. Christina was the ultimate trooper, being forced to walk around in the cold and having to lay in pools of blood for hours on end while I get ALL THE ANGLES. Dailen was a hilarious pro who threw down some phat rhymes and dope beats (and who gave it to the Whore Cheese). And Mark Popejoy? Wow, Mark was a madman in front of the camera, and a jack of all trades behind it. All three of you were amazing people who we hope to work with again in the future. Lots of love all around!

And of course, Steve and Deejay, who once again did anything and everything to make this all come together. Much love.

Full report on the next Splattercast. And now? I sleep. For the love of Angel Sanchez, I sleep.
