    Typically Cronenbergian body horror. It plays much like a peculiarly Canadian zombie film in which fear is not generated by empty consumerism but unleashed sexual desires. Not as inventive as some of his later stuff but not bad at all. 5 years 9 months ago

    I'm a big fan of Cronenberg's work. Although Shivers is not my favorite at all, we can really see Cronenberg learning how to be a good director in it (he admitted it himself). One of his first ''big'' production with a very low budget, he faced a lot of problems ; very few days of shooting, enough money for only a few good actors... But even with theses imperfections, this movie has influenced many cult movies ; just think about how many similarities exist between Shivers and Alien (created in 1979, few years after) 4 years 9 months ago

    Really works. It doesn't feel like much is happening for a lot of the film, but there's a constant creepiness. And then the ending is wonderfully bleak and spooky. 6 years 12 months ago
