“Shiver” is based on a true story about a group of New Year's Eve revelers who get in a car wreck and are stranded in a Minnesota snowstorm when they stumble upon a nearby home, whose occupant happens to be a widowed doctor obsessed with torture as a scientific study.

Bob Weinstein stated, “’Shiver’ is a perfect match for Dimension and we could not be more excited to collaborate with Michael Cuesta on bringing this terrifying script to life.”

Michael Cuesta said, "What I like about “Shiver” and the horror genre is that when it's done honestly, with serious intent, it can tap into the social fears and anxieties of our time. I find that exploring the grotesque, the abhorrent, and what disturbs us, is a chance to convey some universal truths about us and our society."

Richard Saperstein, head of production, and Matthew Stein, senior vice president of production, and Alex Franklin, director of development and production will oversee production on behalf of Dimension.

Saperstein and Sarah Sobel, senior vice president of business and legal affairs, negotiated the agreement on behalf of Dimension Films. Michael Cuesta is represented by ICM, attorney Andrew Hurwitz of Epstein, Levinson, Bodine & Hurwitz and Frank Frattaroli of Widescreen Management. Mikey Wigart is represented by ICM.

Stay tuned for updates.
