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

-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

Michael Pare interview at Fangoria: “the idea that our demons are self-manufactured from guilt, remorse, and regret, and the idea of being haunted by your conscience seemed like a great thing for an actor to play. ” – READ INTERVIEW HERE

Michael Pare interview at Digital Journal: “The raves were across the board, and when they appreciate your work, you feel validated.

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 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.

Horrorfuel.com talks with The Shelter writer/director John Fallon!

john fallon

The Shelter writer/director John Fallon was recently interviewed by Horrorfuel.com. Here is an excerpt.

Horror Fuel: “Can you tell us a little about your most recent film, ‘The Shelter’?”

Fallon: “It’s a about a homeless man, played by Michael Paré. He comes back to his home town after five years of being away and is carrying a a bag full of demons and guilt. After visiting his old stomping grounds, he comes across a house with an open door, he goes in, finds food, TV, comforts of life, he thinks he hit the jackpot. But he finds out the hard way that the house won’t let him leave. Then you find out “why”. Who you are and how you were raised spiritually will determine what you get out the film methinks. It’s a little bit of a weird ride”
