VIDEO TOUR OF THE HOUSE LOCATION.
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.”
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 HEREby
-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. – Britflickby
Terror Time Review: “Blending elements of spirituality, horror and redemption within the faith based storytelling, you see a very complete film in THE SHELTER. Where do you begin with a film like this to show the impact and execution of the pieces brought together?” - READ THE REVIEW HERE
Digital Journal Review: “Michael Pare is transformative in the role, and he builds his character from within. Pare commands the screen for the entire duration of the film. John Fallon did a brilliant job writing the script, as well as directing and producing the movie. It garners an A rating.” - READ THE REVIEW HERE
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. I’ve been doing this for 36 years, and it makes you feel like you have something to contribute to the world of film and television. It is part of the dream of being a great actor. It was a risky project to make, but I had a lot of fun making it.” – READ INTERVIEW HERE
