Danielle Harris announced at this year’s Comic-Con that she would be starring in director Julian Richards’ adaptation of author Brian Harper’s 1992 serial killer novel Shiver. The 33-year-old brunette stunner describes the film as terrifying and her role in it as her “most challenging” (let’s hope challenging is code for frivolous nudity).
Shiver tells the story of a Los Angeles detective on the hunt for a ruthless killer who keeps his victims’ heads as souvenirs. Costarring with Harris are Luke Goss and John Jarrat, who played sadistic murderer Mick Taylor in Greg McLean’s 2005 outback frightener Wolf Creek (I’m guessing he’s cast as the head-collector).
Harris, who admits to having a fascination with serial killers, got her start in horror at the age of 11 opposite one of the genre’s most iconic figures in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. She would return to the franchise as an entirely different character in Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake and its sequel Halloween 2.
Harris’ additional horror creds include the upcoming Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3-D, Adam Green’s Hatchet 2, The Black Waters of Echo Pond, Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet, Left for Dead, and the original Urban Legend.
