IMG_7464DAENA TURNER INTERVIEW (TEENAGE AUDREY)

This was your first acting role, how did you feel before hand? Nervous?
I was a little bit intimidated when I knew that I would be acting with a big star like Michael Paré! Also because it was my first acting role, which was a big deal for me because I had never acted once in my life. I was scared that I would be too shy or that I would mess up my lines a lot! But at the end of it all it was the complete opposite.

What can you tell us about your character as Audrey?
Audrey was not very hard to play actually, she was pretty creepy in some parts though. Like the bathroom scene when she pops out of the bathtub; that made me jump when I saw the film. Everyone on set made it really easy to play Audrey because I was comfortable with them all, I can’t say that I wasn’t nervous at times because I was!

You got to act with a film legend; Michael Paré, how was it working with him?
Acting with Michael Paré was definitely one of the best times of my life! He was very serious when it came to acting, but when the cameras weren’t on us, we had a lot of laughs. Since I was a newbie at acting, he would help me out with my lines and give me some tips and tricks for when I was acting, which was very comforting.

What was your favorite scene to shoot? And why?
The kitchen scene, because we had a lot of laughs and it was just fun to shoot. While we were shooting, Gayle (James) and I improvised, while Mike was gone getting the pan from Annie and it felt like we weren’t acting. It kind of felt like we were having a real mother/daughter bond which was sweet. Mike felt like such a dad, asking me all about Shawn and it was hard for me to keep a straight face because it was funny the way I gave him a little bit of sass while describing how Shawn asked me out.

Any weird things happen during or after the shoot?
In the movie in one of the scenes, there’s a little music box that plays while Audrey is asleep. I got to keep that music box after the shoot but when I got home, the music box would occasionally turn on and play the music by itself. It is no longer in my room.

Is acting something you want to pursue further? If not, then what do you want to do?
Ever since I was little I wanted to work with children, so that is probably what I am going to pursue. However, if I do get offered a chance to act again (depending on the role) I might take it. Maybe I could do both, I’m only 17 right now (14 when we shot The Shelter) so I am not exactly sure about what I’d like to do in the future yet but I will keep my options open for acting though.

JOHN FALLON’S THE SHELTER COMING TO REDBOX and EFM!

After its theatrical, VOD and DVD release, John Fallon’s THE SHELTER will now be available (in the USA) on RedBox come February 7, 2017.

Written, directed and produced by John Fallon (and Donny Broussard), The Shelter stars Michael Paré (Eddie and the Cruisers, Streets of Fire) in one of his most acclaimed performances of recent times.

Co-starring Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Amy Wickenheiser, Lauren Alexandra and Daena Turner, Tom Holland’s Terror Times said: “Blending elements of spirituality, horror and redemption within the faith based storytelling, you see a very complete film in THE SHELTER.”

In THE SHELTER, widower and homeless man Thomas Jacobs (Paré) finds shelter for the night when he falls upon a vast two-story house with the lights on and an inviting open front door. He strolls on in thinking he just caught a lucky break and for a while, it would appear as though he did. But soon enough, he realizes that the house won’t let him leave, as its doors are all locked while its windows cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. What does it want from him? Will he survive the ordeal?

THE SHELTER, was DP’d by Bobby Holbrook, features visual VFX work from The Conjuring’s Thomas Wilson, and is the first film from Bruise Productions Inc. and JoBlo Movie Productions Inc. All production and post production elements were furnished by Holbrook Multi Media.

Two new reviews of  THE SHELTER recently surfaced. Scoll down! You can now order THE SHELTER on DVD here!

WE ARE INDIE HORROR: “”The Shelter is a mysterious film with an atmospheric tone that carries the film’s melancholic exploration of love lost and regret with unbridled force. From his stumbling drunkenness to his explosive anger, Michael Pare​, gives one of his best performances of his long career!” – READ THE REVIEW HERE

HORRORFUEL: “The pain and darkness one feels within can be the most horrifying of all. Fallon could be trying to say that rock bottom may not actually be the furthest one can reach when they fall.It’s dark and introspective, and has a very Twilight Zone feel about it. “ – READ THE REVIEW HERE

Writer/Director John Fallon had this to say about the disk:
“Folks that enjoyed the film will get a lot out of the insightful Michael Paré video interview and there’s ample meat in my feature length audio commentary as well. I shared a lot of background info/trivia about the making of the picture, the odd happenings that befell us and also connected some dots as to my intent when it came to the -left up to interpretation- manner in which the story was told.”

The Shelter star Michael Pare recently talked with Nerd Element about the film while the website Ravenous Monster just reviewed it. Excerpts and links below!

Nerd Element Michael Pare interview: “He’s [Thomas] not just full of self-pity and remorse, he’s also degenerated as a human being.  It takes a lot of personal effort to become an evolved human being. Spiritual and psychological and intellectual evolution requires personal effort. Nobody can just give that to you.” – READ THE INTERVIEW HERE!

Ravenous Monster The Shelter review: ” Fallon’s maiden voyage is a well-executed descent into one man’s dark state of mind and it’s as indie and it gets.  In that regard it must be considered a huge success.  General cinephiles will have a lot to marvel at here.” – READ THE REVIEW HERE
