Beginning in 2015, Dead Lantern Pictures (www.DeadLantern.com), a horror production company from the wilds of Nebraska, began making CHILLS DOWN YOUR SPINE, the sequel to the critically acclaimed microbudget horror anthology SHIVERS DOWN YOUR SPINE.
With CHILLS, we wanted to go big! Not only does this horror anthology have dual wraparound stories that converge into a huge finale, but one of them is literally an adaptation of Homer’s THE ODYSSEY! Not only that, this anthology packs a horror western, animated slasher film, a gothic nudie cutie, a ghostly murder mystery, an all-female film noir, a Lovecraftian apocalypse, and more! There’s a little bit of something for horror fans of all stripes!
Here are the synopsis for each film as well as some details on the making of each:
- 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 the gold they took while dealing with their own internal issues.
- ISABELLE RETURNS: Isabelle Wakeworth rises from the grave to murder horny co-eds in this animated tale of terror!
