THE SHELTER is finally available in Europe (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg for now). It was released on August 24th 2017 on DVD via RED SQUARE FILM and can be purchased HERE. We are hoping that it finds its audience.
We recently tagged up with a new Worldwide Sales Agent, hence we’re aiming for the film to be available in the rest of the world sooner than later. If you’re in North America – the many ways to see it are HERE.
“Fallon’s film will probably polarize most audiences, as it boldly goes where most films daren’t – relating a somewhat in-congruent tale that does anything but spoon-feed viewers” – Scream Horror Mag
We are happy to announce that THE SHELTER was just recently added to HULU. We hope that folks that watch it via that platform get something out of it.
If you enjoyed the film, take the time to post your reviews or/and give us your STAR rating on IMDb. You can also own the film on DVD (with director commentary and interview with star Michael Pare) or see it via other PLATFORMS.

“The Shelter swirls Christianity and Silent Hill-levels of guilt to torment its protagonist, and Fallon’s strong visual style combines with a very strong turn from Pare to good effect.” – SciFiNow

“A fantastically acted, shot and packaged film. Sit back, pay attention and enjoy. You may just find some relatable material that can spark your own journey to closure or self-evaluation. .” – READ THE WHOLE REVIEW HERE
“When I finished watching the Shelter, I wanted to fling the disc across the room. It ends in a most frustrating way, after a most frustrating narrative. But as I yelled about my frustration with it, I found answers to questions I had tumbling out of my own mouth, and I started to come around on it.” – READ THE WHOLE REVIEW HERE
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.
