After its showings late last year at Film4 Frightfest, the Sitges Film Festival and the A Night of Horror Film Festival (where star Michael Paré won the “Career Achievement” Award for his work in the film), THE SHELTER keeps on trucking in 2016.

We’re presently securing further Festival screenings (to be announced soon) while seeking a home in terms of worldwide distribution. In light of the BERLIN MARKET happening as we speak, we decided to release a clip from the film – see it below! You can e-mail us HERE for distribution inquiries.

You can also watch the CLIP ON VIMEO HERE!

Looking back at The Shelter’s journey in 2015!

facebooktwitterby feather


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!
Signing after the Frightfest Screening!

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?

At the Sitges Film Festival

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

A talk with The Shelter actress Rachel Whittle!

Rachel Whittle (Annie).Rachel Whittle (Actress – Annie)

What was it about the role of Annie that appealed to you?  

I was very drawn to the role of Annie.  To this day, she is one of my favorites.  I am drawn to broken characters with a strong sense of survival.  Annie has such fight in her.  She is heroic in her own right.  We all do low and degraded things when we walk through the low places.

How did you go about preparing for the part?

Annie had to get to a very intense place.  I invested in the truth of Annie’s circumstances and how important these things were to her.   I spent a lot of time internalizing that need and connecting with her brokenness.

Michael Pare and you had a tense chemistry onscreen, how were you guys in between takes?  

Well, he is handsome that’s for sure!  I think we really connected as actors.  I wish I had had more time to spend with Michael outside of filming…it was hard to connect personally between takes, because I was still Annie between takes. But he was wonderful, and it would be a dream to work with him again.  He was very gracious, and there is much I could learn from him!

What’s next for you? Anything in the works?  

I have been getting into production work, and I love it.  I recently joined a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring a younger generation in film-making.  It’s called bckstry.org and I am excited for the doors it will open to be involved in films from start to finish.


The film will be screening at the SITGES FILM FESTIVAL on October 9th at 8:00PM at the Retiro as part of the Panorama Fantastic section! Writer/Director John Fallon will be on hand to present the screening.

Small The Shelter update! Distribution, Festivals and critics!

facebooktwitterby feather


Now that the Cannes screening is behind us, THE SHELTER is  currently being being looked at by varied distributors. The film was also submitted to a slew of Film Festivals and it was sent to a handful of film critics.

Yes, many seeds have been planted in terms of the film – lets see which grow. The good news is, two high end Film Festivals have already accepted THE SHELTER into its fold and we couldn’t be more excited about them! We will be able to reveal one of the Festivals in question come July 2nd, 2015, so stay tuned for that and hopefully more good news down the road!
