Shivers: Prelude & Symphony Summary

Mysterious and horrifying creatures are lurking in our world, lingering beyond human perception

With each new person that encounters the paranormal, a tale of terror emerges

A compilation of horror stories focused on ghosts, the unknown, and beyond!

Shivers - Prelude & Symphony
I could be mistaken, but I believe the art originates from Indonesia.

Most stories have a western feel to them, so if you don’t like that – then this may not be for you.

Shivers is available in two seasons, Prelude and Symphony. Both of them have around 35 chapters each, with varying content and quality.

I personally prefer Symphony over Prelude, but that’s a matter of taste. Some stories are a hit and miss, but I enjoy others more. From Prelude, I like “House in the Middle of the Forest”, “Night Shift” & “Not Alone”.

As for some other stories, such as “Give Me a Name” and “Revolver” are quite different from what you think about when you hear “ghost stories.”

There’s a good chunk of variety in the stories I’ve mentioned, which makes it well worth checking those out.

As for the 2nd season of Shivers, there’s also some really good ones to read late at night.

Some of the stories I do enjoy from Symphony includes “The Night Watch”, “Be Careful Of What You Wish For!”, “Frog’s Song”, “The Last Passenger”, “Darkness Falls”, “Elvira” and more.

Some of the stories focus more on human depravity, whereas some are just pure ghosts stories. Then again, some are actually not so much scary stories as they are heart-warming.

The charm of all compilations/anthologies are the variety in the stories. You can most times find something which is interesting for you to read.

Final thoughts: Some stories are a miss for me, but I do think the ones I mentioned up above are good enough to warrant a read.

This is part of Otomenai’s horror month, where we share some interesting horror comics during the month of October.
