We’ve gotten a lot of e-mails asking us to release composer Shawn Knippelberg’s score from THE SHELTER, hence we just made available 3 of our favorite tracks on GOOGLE PLAY: The Trip, The House and Rise from the Dead (writer/director John Fallon’s personal favorite). Check them out here! If popular enough, we may release further tracks from the film.

Looking back at The Shelter’s journey in 2015!

From writer/director/producer John Fallon: 2015 was a good year for THE SHELTER. The ride started off with a positive review on one of the top internet movie sites  ( Ain’t It Cool News ) with one of my favorite quotes (“The exact opposite of the feel good movie of the year.”) and it kept trucking forward from there!

The film went on to screen at the Frightfest Film Festival, the Sitges Film Festival, the Southern Screen Film Festival and ended off at the A Night of Horror Film Festival, where star Michael Pare won a
“Career Achievement award” for his work in the film.

Thanks to everybody that attended!

The varied screenings resulted in a slew of mostly positive REVIEWS (which you can read here) and in depth INTERVIEWS (which you can read here) with this one with star Michael Pare being the latest. The film is now being rated/reviewed on IMDb and it just started getting some traction on Rotten Tomatoes.

Now there were challenges, sucker punches, odd happenings (don’t get me started), disappointments… what not (I may go into details about the ups and downs on my personal blog down the road, will make for a great read). But we dealt with them to the best of our abilities and kept forging forward. At the end of the day, that is all one can do. So what does 2016 have in store for the film?

The Shelter will do a couple more Festivals (to be disclosed soon ) and once that last leg done we will focus fully on sales/distribution. Thanks to all who have are still supporting the film. Trust me when I say that the positive energy does not go unnoticed.

Personally, my life was totally consumed by The Shelter in 2015 and I see the film demanding the same from me in 2016. All good. Lets do it! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! God bless! – John Fallon

The Shelter to screen at the A Night of Horror Film Festival!

NIGHT-HORROR-1

The Shelter premiered to strong reviews at Frightfest 2015 in London this past September, then screened at the Sitges Film Festival in October and now The Shelter will screen at the reputable A Night of Horror Film Festival in Sidney Australia on Sunday November 29 at 5:00pm (buy your tickets here).

Writer/director John Fallon had this to say:
“My short film The Red Hours premiered at ANOH in 2009 and I’m excited to have The Shelter screen there as well. It’s a fine Festival ran by a solid group of people and it attracts a great crowd. I unfortunately cannot be there in person for the screening but I would like to say this to the ANOH audience: The Shelter is a moody, trippy and introspective film, hence set those gore and bouncing melons expectations aside. As opposed to what I have done in the past, this is not that kind of movie. Don’t go in there expecting a party, think more the mood of a funeral… :)”

The film revolves around a widower and homeless man named, Thomas Jacobs (played by Michael Paré), who finds shelter one night when he falls upon a vast two story house with the lights on and an inviting open front door. He strolls in and makes himself at home, but what at first seems like a lucky break turns out to be a cruel twist of fate when he realizes that the house won’t let him leave.

Here are what some of the critics had to say:

”Pare really gives it his all here, plunging to emotional depths I never thought he was able to do and doing them with a real sense of soul.” – AINT IT COOL NEWS

“Fallon’s piece is piercing as a disconcerting family dreamscape.” – STARBURST MAGAZINE

“There’s a confidence to Fallon’s choices too, as he gives us a not particularly likeable protagonist and maintains a somber tone throughout this emotionally raw journey.” – SCIFINOW
