Following the theatrical screening, Shaky Shivers will move to the SCREAMBOX streaming service.

Shot over the course of five weeks at a closed down girl scout camp back in 2020, Shaky Shivers takes viewers on a hilarious and nostalgic journey to an abandoned camp where two young women, played by Brooke Markham (In the Dark) and VyVy Nguyen (The Sympathizer), stumble upon a book of magical spells. Karen and Lucy are faced with a series supernatural events after a chance encounter with an elderly woman. They are surrounded by classic horror movies and 80’s inspired monsters. As zombies, werewolves, and Bigfoot wreak havoc, the duo must navigate a wild night, armed with an unfamiliar spell book, to restore order before their lives unravel completely…

Jimmy Bellinger (Blockers), Erin Daniels (House of 1000 Corpses), Skyler Day (Parenthood), and Herschel Sparber (Lucky Stiff) are also in the cast.

A press release notes that, while the film is set in the ’90s, it’s also a nostalgic tribute to ’80s horror movies. It features “a thrilling monster mash” and “captures the spirit of the ’80s classics that Kang grew up adoring”.

Kang provided the following statement: “The whole idea was to make this for the old school horror hounds and for them to share it with their families today. We’re slowly achieving that. I couldn’t be more excited about rolling this film out.

Brad Miska, the managing director of Bloody Disgusting/Cinedigm, had this to say: “This campy film transports us back to an era when spooky tales were shared by flashlight during slumber parties. Sung Kang’s directorial debut promises to be a thrilling and unique experience for fans. With its eclectic mix of quirky humor, chilling moments, monstrous creatures, and a captivating throwback atmosphere, fans are in for one hell of an experience this fall.

Shaky Shivers was scripted by Aaron Strongoni and Andrew McAllister, who were inspired to write a creature feature script after making a documentary about special effects artist Gabriel Bartalos, who ended up working on the film. Kang produced the movie through his company Raison D’etre along with Luci Y.Kim of Luka Productions, and Jean Shim from Aerie On Elms. Nina Yang Bongiovi, of AUM, served as executive producer along with Kevin M. Lin and Michael Y. Chow. Brian Yang was also involved. Please leave a comment. I’m looking forward to seeing this one.
