Aka 'They Came from Within', 'The Parasite Murders'. Initially reviled in its native land (some critics took exception to the fact the film was largely funded by the Canadian taxpayer), 'Shivers' is the startling full-length feature debut from director David Cronenberg which anticipates the body-horror concerns of his later films such as 'The Fly' and 'Videodrome'. Starliner Island is an idyllic community. Cut off from the rest of the world, the luxury apartment block affords its occupants the chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city. But this isolation is to prove fatal when a new breed of parasite - a combination of aphrodisiac and venereal disease which arouses sexual aggression in its hosts - is let loose in the building, resulting in an orgy of terror and mayhem.
