Frightening and funny, the film puts the camp back in summer camp. After finding herself bitten by a mysterious animal, Lucy becomes convinced that she will transform into a fearsome werewolf. Joined by her best friend Karen, the two embark on a wild adventure filled with magic and mayhem, as they look to do battle with a throat-slashing creature ripped right out of an 80s horror movie.
During the peak of the Covid pandemic, Kang made a career shift from blockbuster action films to the realm of horror directing and created Shaky Shivers as a tribute to the beloved 80s movies of his youth.
“Cineverse, Bloody Disgusting, and Fathom Events have a profound understanding of the horror genre, so as a first-time filmmaker, I’m grateful to be releasing Shaky Shivers in theaters nationwide with this powerful genre team,” said Kang. “The whole idea was to make this for the old-school horror hounds and for them to experience it together on the big screen. I hope this event is one that people remember.”
