It’s been over four years since we reviewed the Shivers Down Your Spine Anthology. Made up of 10 stories, the original collection was a labour of love, taking four years and only $750 to complete! Now, Dead Lantern Pictures is back with twice the thrills, twice the kills and twice the chills! Their latest anthology, Chills Down Your Spine, is more ambitious than ever. The no-budget outfit from Nebraska have put together a wide variety of stories. From animation, western, film noir, a Lovecraftian apocalypse, even an intermission, the anthology has it all!
Just like Shivers, the Chills Down Your Spine anthology is laced with comedy, unusual storylines, unique characters and a whole load of b-movie goodness. Over 75 cast and crew members collaborated to make the collection and after nearly 5 years of production, we’re happy to report that this anthology is even better than their first!
ROAD TRIP (Wraparound 1): Jeff, still searching for Sabiah after the events of Shivers Down Your Spine, finds a new lamp in an arcade. Upon rubbing it, out pops not Sabiah, but her little sister, Mahktoonah. Together, the two go on an ancient Road Trip that just so happens to be quite the odyssey…
C’MON BABY LIGHT MY FLAME (Wraparound 2): Sabiah’s lamp is found by a sadistic killer who is biding his time in order to carve out her flame and bring about the destruction of the world!
THE DEVIL’S CORKSCREW: A group of thieves try to escape being hunted down by the owner of their stolen gold, all while dealing with their own internal issues in this intriguing Western.
ISABELLE RETURNS: Isabelle Wakeworth rises from the grave to murder horny co-eds in this animated tale of terror.
THE DITCH: A group of strangers come together and find something very interesting in a Nebraska ditch…
BED AND BREAKFAST: A young girl is hunted by a sadistic ghoul at an old Bed and Breakfast on a dark and stormy night…
INTERMISSION: Three individuals watch the first half of CHILLS DOWN YOUR SPINE and give you their important thoughts!
HYSTERIA!: A burlesque troupe arrives for a show on Halloween night only to be wrapped up in a comedic, Scooby Doo-esque murder mystery!
BLOOD MODEL: An artist tries to find inspiration in a beautiful model but finds he’s having trouble getting his paintings to look right.
THE WHIRLPOOL OF NIGHT: A private investigator has to steal an object from a powerful woman with deadly results..
THE CALLING OF THE THINGS BEYOND: Reality begins to break and crack when a young woman finishes a cursed play…
As I’m sure you can tell, this is a LONG collection. But you can’t complain that you’re not getting value for money. They’ve even been courteous enough to provide an intermission!
