Michael Cuesta is tapped to direct Dimension Film's thriller project of "Shiver"
After evoking dramatic moments in "L.I.E.", director Michael Cuesta now prepares to provide high tension onscreen as he has given his approval to helm a Dimension Films' project "Shiver", a horror thriller inspired by true events of a group of New Year's Eve revelers who stumbled upon a house of a widowed doctor obsessed with torture.
"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," Cuesta commented. "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."
