There's the old saying that the customer is always right, and we know by countless Karen-sploitation vids that challenging that can be a pain in the ass. But for outspoken Lucy, when she turns away a customer at the ice cream and shake shop she works at, the customer may always be fright... Fearing she's been cursed to turn into a werewolf, Lucy and her bestie head off into the woods armed with a pistol as big as their head and silver nail polish-painted bullets to wait for the full moon to rise in the night sky. But chaos has other plans.
SHAKY SHIVERS takes a double scoop of buddy comedy, a squirt of cult creaminess and a liberal sprinkling of 80s monster mash up to create the ultimate goofball sundae of goodness.
