Storyline

While waiting for their bus, five passengers have just had horrible nightmares and decide to tell them to each other to help killing time. A swimmer, who has lessons in a swimming pool with a dead swimmer, tells the first one. A young boy, who goes camping with two friends and a crazy man as a leader, is the next. Then, a lonely woman, who has an infatuation with the anchor of a late night show, and finds that he is indeed a vampire. A young man, who finds he has the gift of bringing dead people back to life, brings a cold blood criminal back to life. Last, a skeptic professor of anthropology tells to his students about an evil Spanish creature from the Middle Ages called "Ixpe", and a young woman embodies it. When the bus arrives, they have a huge surprise. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My favourite movie...Sad really.
21 June 2002 | by (texas,1994) – See all my reviews

I don't know what it is but Chillers by Daniel Boyd is my favourite movie. Not because of any cinematic genius of directorial kufuffle but it is a very entertaining movie to just to watch or fall asleep to. Me and this movie go way back. I remember back in ot '97 I would rent it everyday from my local video store. After not returning to the store once school started again I found that my dear Baldie's Video had gone out of business. This enraged me to the point average annoyence and vowed that I would meet that movie again someday. Months passed and my birthday rolled around. And it was on that day my friends that my friend Ryan purchased me my very own copy of the film in question ordering it from a shoppe in D-Troit. Now I am complete, Chillers and I later married (as legally as we could) in a chapel in Singipore where rice was thrown as well as minature chocolate doves which melted in a rather ironic tribute to me and my multi-media lifemate.

See it!
