shelter-mike

The Shelter reviews are still surfacing!  We just got one from Yfcstudios.com and another hate/like/hate from Tiskaidekafiles.com. Excerpts and full reviews below!

“A fantastically acted, shot and packaged film. Sit back, pay attention and enjoy. You may just find some relatable material that can spark your own journey to closure or self-evaluation. .”READ THE WHOLE REVIEW HERE

“When I finished watching the Shelter, I wanted to fling the disc across the room.  It ends in a most frustrating way, after a most frustrating narrative.  But as I yelled about my frustration with it, I found answers to questions I had tumbling out of my own mouth, and I started to come around on it.” –  READ THE WHOLE REVIEW HERE

Young actress Daena Turner talks making The Shelter!

IMG_7464DAENA TURNER INTERVIEW (TEENAGE AUDREY)

This was your first acting role, how did you feel before hand? Nervous?
I was a little bit intimidated when I knew that I would be acting with a big star like Michael Paré! Also because it was my first acting role, which was a big deal for me because I had never acted once in my life. I was scared that I would be too shy or that I would mess up my lines a lot! But at the end of it all it was the complete opposite.

What can you tell us about your character as Audrey?
Audrey was not very hard to play actually, she was pretty creepy in some parts though. Like the bathroom scene when she pops out of the bathtub; that made me jump when I saw the film. Everyone on set made it really easy to play Audrey because I was comfortable with them all, I can’t say that I wasn’t nervous at times because I was!

You got to act with a film legend; Michael Paré, how was it working with him?
Acting with Michael Paré was definitely one of the best times of my life! He was very serious when it came to acting, but when the cameras weren’t on us, we had a lot of laughs. Since I was a newbie at acting, he would help me out with my lines and give me some tips and tricks for when I was acting, which was very comforting.

What was your favorite scene to shoot? And why?
The kitchen scene, because we had a lot of laughs and it was just fun to shoot. While we were shooting, Gayle (James) and I improvised, while Mike was gone getting the pan from Annie and it felt like we weren’t acting. It kind of felt like we were having a real mother/daughter bond which was sweet. Mike felt like such a dad, asking me all about Shawn and it was hard for me to keep a straight face because it was funny the way I gave him a little bit of sass while describing how Shawn asked me out.

Any weird things happen during or after the shoot?
In the movie in one of the scenes, there’s a little music box that plays while Audrey is asleep. I got to keep that music box after the shoot but when I got home, the music box would occasionally turn on and play the music by itself. It is no longer in my room.

Is acting something you want to pursue further? If not, then what do you want to do?
Ever since I was little I wanted to work with children, so that is probably what I am going to pursue. However, if I do get offered a chance to act again (depending on the role) I might take it. Maybe I could do both, I’m only 17 right now (14 when we shot The Shelter) so I am not exactly sure about what I’d like to do in the future yet but I will keep my options open for acting though.

Two new reviews of  THE SHELTER recently surfaced. Scoll down! You can now order THE SHELTER on DVD here!

WE ARE INDIE HORROR: “”The Shelter is a mysterious film with an atmospheric tone that carries the film’s melancholic exploration of love lost and regret with unbridled force. From his stumbling drunkenness to his explosive anger, Michael Pare​, gives one of his best performances of his long career!” – READ THE REVIEW HERE

HORRORFUEL: “The pain and darkness one feels within can be the most horrifying of all. Fallon could be trying to say that rock bottom may not actually be the furthest one can reach when they fall.It’s dark and introspective, and has a very Twilight Zone feel about it. “ – READ THE REVIEW HERE

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-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.

Scream Horror Mag gives The Shelter a glowing review!

facebooktwitterby feather

the_shelter_featured_image

Nice to start to year right. We just got our first review of 2016 via Scream Horror Mag and it’s a positive one! Here’s are two excerpts:

“With Pare in pretty much every frame, he deserves so much praise as he steals each and every scene and goes beyond the call of duty!”

“Whilst Fallon’s film will probably polarize most audiences, as it boldly goes where most films daren’t – relating a somewhat incongruent tale that does anything but spoon-feed viewers; in my book, that’s the epitome of the kind of films people need to be queuing up to catch instead of the spate of Hollywood horrors that don’t even try to get the audience’s grey matter muscles flexing.”
