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

The Shelter is not just for fans of supernatural thrillers, it’s also for people of Faith!

-Like Book of Job from the Bible, Thomas is tested through supernatural signs that lead him to an emotional place in his heart he’s learnt to hide from. It’s an uncomfortable watch as real become unreal – Britflick

Thus far, THE SHELTER has mostly been addressed by the mainstream and horror press/audience. But with its Christianity inspired themes, iconography and symbolism; we also believe that people of Faith should see the film, even those who don’t normally like genre efforts.

Yes the film has sex, minor violence/nudity and (many) “sins” and it is NOT family friendly. But aren’t sins and an opportunity for repentance and atonement part of it all? I will discuss all of this further in due time on my Official Blog, till then here are some quotes from some of The Shelter reviews that picked on the spiritual tones of the film. Much love! John Fallon

-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. – Sci Fi Now

-The neon lights become the power of Christ and his need to beg forgiveness jostles with memories that aren’t allowed to fade.  – Starbust Magazine

-The film’s religious undertones remain apparent but they never feel overly preachy and, surprisingly and cleverly, draw out whatever spirituality we believe in, making Fallon’s intentions feel relevant to us in our own particular way. – Scream Horror Mag

-There are a lot of religious references, as well as dreamy sequences bathed in light, where we are not quite sure whether to believe what we are seeing, or if it is merely a product of Thomas’ mind. – Movieramblings

-The beauty of Fallon’s cinematic Lament Configuration is that through extensive use of religious iconography and flashbacks that offer suggestions as to how Thomas found himself in this predicament, there are multiple conclusions that the viewer may come to, and with Fallon wisely refusing to offer his own explanation of the film’s meaning it enables the viewer to take their own unique experience with them. – This is Horror

-Filled to the rafters with religious iconography; statues of Jesus Christ, copies of the Bible and crucifixes of ever schism, are littered everywhere you care to look. The talismans represent Thomas’ need forgiveness, but he’s a stubborn man. – The Hollywood News

“Blending elements of spirituality, horror and redemption within the faith based storytelling, you see a very complete film in THE SHELTER.- Tom Holland Terror Time.

- God’s not explicitly mentioned, but even a lapsed Catholic or staunch atheist will get the feeling going into the final act and after the credits roll that someone, not of this world, can and will put you out of your misery… if you’ve given up. – Britflick
