Shivers Entertainment is a brand spanking new Canadian-based film distribution company. From Victoria, British Columbia and developed by long time exploitation film fan Brenin Barrow, the first major release for Shivers Ent. is the truly disturbing Canuxploitation film Massacre Up North! This shot-on-video slasher is one of the bloodiest titles to ever be produced in Canada. Full of gore, terror and nudity, Massacre Up North involves one man’s deadly trail of destruction, in small town Canada.
Shivers Entertainment will be re-launching this title, 15 years after its original release. This time, Shivers will release Massacre Up North with a very limited VHS copy; only 70 copies will be available. As well, this will be the film’s first DVD launch and it will host a new, bloodier cover than the original (seen above). Not to be missed, this second run of Massacre Up North will be every low-budget film collector’s dream and every horror fan’s nightmare.
Here’s the film synopsis: ‘After a camping accident leaves him disfigured and tormented by classmates, Leslie Rejick only has one thing on his mind: It’s Time to Even The Score! With a hardware store chock-full of deadly tools at his disposal, he leaves behind a merciless path of death and destruction in a small Canadian town. A pair of inept city detectives, determined to track down the killer, enlist the help of eccentric local coroner Patrick. But, Patrick holds a secret of his own, and he ultimately leads the detectives head-on into a bizarre, bloody battle with the psychotic killer.’
