-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

John Fallon talks The Shelter with Cinema Crazed!

Writer/Director John Fallon recently sat down with Cinema Crazed to talk about The Shelter. Here is an excerpt:

Q. The images and iconography are very catholic, at least to a viewer who was raised catholic, what is the importance of religion for you and is it needed to understand the film or get something out of it?

I don’t talk about my spirituality much, as it is very private to me, buy me a couple of beers and we’ll yap. [Smiles] On that, every genre film out there deals with Satan, demons etc. I figured it would be interesting to explore the flip side of that coin to some degree via this supernatural character study.

shelter-new

Horrornews.net recently reviewed THE SHELTER. Here is an excerpt.

“It reminded me a lot of the films of David Lynch and Roman Polanski and is just a very strong, intelligent character-driven piece that is sure to satisfy viewers.”

 ” Pare does an excellent job bringing him (his character) to life. As a matter of fact I really couldn’t see anyone else playing the part as well as Pare did and he really shows just how talented of an actor he truly is with this performance. “

Starburst Magazine talks spirituality and The Shelter with John Fallon!

Famous UK magazine Starburst recently talked about The Shelter and its spiritual side with writer/director John Fallon. Here is an excerpt:

Do you want people to have their own interpretations or is there a hidden thing for them to find if they want to?

JF: There’s one interpretation that’s very popular. There’s another layer to the film that people are not getting so far. I took a nod from one of my favorite directors, David Lynch as I got obsessed with his film Lost Highway. When I set out to make The Shelter I wanted to make something in that same spirit. People have to find the meaning for themselves.
