Two new reviews surface for The Shelter!

11

Two new THE SHELTER reviews have surfaced.

The first via MOVIE ELITE: “The Shelter was gripping from start to finish and the outcome was quite unpredictable; it’s the type of film that warrants repeat viewings as not everything is explained which is just how I like it. “READ THE REVIEW HERE!

The second is from TWISTED CENTRAL: “Fallon doesn’t do any hand holding here. He lays out a story and leaves it to his audience to decide what is actually happening. I suspect true fans of the psychological thrillers will enjoy it. It’s a frighteningly beautiful tale that will leave you breathless.” – READ THE REVIEW HERE

The Shelter will be released in theaters and on digital on November 4th and on DVD come January 3rd from Uncork’d Entertainment.

The Producer of The Shelter Donny Broussard was recently interviewed. Here’s an excerpt.

“John and I had been friends for a long time and he told me about a script he was working on called, The Shelter. After I heard the premise I told him that I believed we could make it ourselves. We kept talking about it off and on for about a year until we decided that it was time to take the leap and actually make the film. From that point on I was his producer.”

New The Shelter review and interview with DP Bobby Holbrook!

unnamed

THE SHELTER is now being shown once again to critics. Here’s the first review out of the gate by HORROR SOCIETY. An excerpt:

“A one man show by an extremely talented actor capable of omitting every emotion in the book in under an hour and a half. It’s a dark, psychological drama that’ll hold you by the throat with stark claustrophobia. I enjoyed it.” The Shelter isn’t a movie about redemption, it’s a movie about remorse, revenge and reawakening old thoughts that should have stayed buried.”

And THE SHELTER editor and DP BOBBY HOLBROOK was recently interviewed. An excerpt:

The producer Donny Broussard connected us together. We met in-person and via Skype a few times to discuss our views on the film and know if we could work together. when you put to people together that are passionate about film making, a energy and understanding is noticed immediately and many words aren’t needed. You simple communicate without words.

A talk with The Shelter actress Lauren Alexandra (aka Lauren Thomas)!

laurentopLAUREN ALEXANDRA (JOSEPHINE)

How did you get into acting? Was it planned or by accident?

I did theatre in middle and high school, but I always considered myself a dancer, not an actress. I moved to LA when I was 20 and planned to continue dancing. I quickly found out that I hated the dance world, so I landed myself an internship at Interscope Records and planned to work in the music business. My mom told me she saw an ad for Central Casting and I should go sign up to do background work for extra money. I took her advice because I’m always down to try something new, and I ended up working for two weeks on a TBS TV show called “Glory Daze”.

It was a period piece, set in the 80s, based on a group of young college students. Everyday I was dressed in vintage clothes, got my hair crimped and teased, and got my makeup airbrushed on. It all felt like magic to me. The moment I stepped on set, I fell in love with the whole idea of making a film. I loved that we were making art that had potential to exist forever. From that moment on, I have been training, auditioning, and working as an actress.

What’s your ritual if any, that you do before shooting a scene?

I don’t really have a ritual, I just like to make sure I’ve done enough work on my character in the scene so I can feel confident enough in myself to let loose while shooting.

What can you tell us about your role of Josephine in The Shelter?

I felt like Josephine was a bright light in the midst of all the darkness of the story. She is genuine, one of those down to earth bartenders most people feel they can vent to and spill their heart to. To me, she represents a very last chance or last resort for Michael Pare’s character, by offering him help to secure him a safe place to spend the night.

How was it to act opposite an acting legend like Michael Pare?

Michael Pare was very professional, encouraging, and down to earth. He immediately made me feel very comfortable. We shot this almost two years ago I think, but I remember the advice he gave me. He told me that acting is supposed to be fun and not to let anyone take that out of it for me down the road. I still think about that today when I start to take situations too seriously!

Looking back what would be your favorite moment of the shoot?

My favorite moments are always when I’m shooting. It still feels like magic to me when I get the opportunity to act on film. I also had a great time bonding with everyone on set in between takes!

What’s next for you as an actress? Any other projects lined up?

I am playing the lead in a film called “Zippo Girl”, an adaption of the Hans Christian Anderson story “The Little Match Girl” with Director Drew Errington until November 2016. I’m also headed to Spain for two weeks for a little work and a little vacay, and can’t wait to see what inspiration comes from exploring the beautiful country.

THE SHELTER-Fallon-22

JOHN FALLON’S THE SHELTER COMING TO THEATERS, ON DEMAND THIS NOVEMBER

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

Scream Horror Magazine says Paré “steals each and every scene” while Aint it Cool News says he “really gives it his all here, plunging to emotional depths I never thought he was able to do”.

Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Amy Wickenheiser and Daena Turner co-star in “the smart man’s horror film” (Icons of Fright).

On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas Jacobs (Michael 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 will be released in theaters and digital in North America on Nov 4 and on DVD on January 3 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
