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.

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

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

With THE SHELTER opening top day in select theaters (screening for a week) and  on VOD today (watch it here) the press has been ample on the film. Here are two recent interviews with Writer/Director John Fallon, one at WhysoBlu and the other and Kicking the Seat! Below the 5 most recent reviews.

LA TIMES: “John Fallon’s “The Shelter” is remarkably ambitious. It’s a concise genre piece that doubles as a heavily metaphorical character sketch. More B-movies could stand to be like “The Shelter,” which at least tries to tie its darkness to something real.  – READ THE REVIEW HERE

THATMOMENTIN: “Fallon mixes some effectively creative imagery and impressive visuals in among the often dreary grey overtones.  – This is all Pare!” READ THE REVIEW HERE

KICKING THE SEAT: “The Shelter becomes a moving exercise in faith and self-reconciliation” - READ THE REVIEW HERE

GBHBL: “It’s a movie that lives & dies on its lead’s performance as much of this film is focused on his reactions to the events unfolding in front of his eyes. Thankfully Michael Paré does an excellent job of portraying a man haunted by his own guilt, desperate to forget everything in the the nearest bottle of booze.” READ THE REVIEW HERE

NIGHTMARISH CONJURING: “The film is beautifully done.  John Fallon made excellent use of ethereal lighting to get his vision across.  The use of bright lights against the darkened backdrop brings you in, a lot of it feels like the diffused lighting one encounters in a church under natural lighting through stained glass windows, I suspect that’s not an accident.” - READ THE REVIEW

The Producer of The Shelter Donny Broussard was recently interviewed. Here’s an excerpt.

“John and I had been friends for a long time and he told me about a script he was working on called, The Shelter. After I heard the premise I told him that I believed we could make it ourselves. We kept talking about it off and on for about a year until we decided that it was time to take the leap and actually make the film. From that point on I was his producer.”

The Shelter will be released in theaters and on digital on November 4th and on DVD come January 3rd from Uncork’d Entertainment.

New The Shelter review and interview with DP Bobby Holbrook!

unnamed

THE SHELTER is now being shown once again to critics. Here’s the first review out of the gate by HORROR SOCIETY. An excerpt:

“A one man show by an extremely talented actor capable of omitting every emotion in the book in under an hour and a half. It’s a dark, psychological drama that’ll hold you by the throat with stark claustrophobia. I enjoyed it.” The Shelter isn’t a movie about redemption, it’s a movie about remorse, revenge and reawakening old thoughts that should have stayed buried.”

And THE SHELTER editor and DP BOBBY HOLBROOK was recently interviewed. An excerpt:

The producer Donny Broussard connected us together. We met in-person and via Skype a few times to discuss our views on the film and know if we could work together. when you put to people together that are passionate about film making, a energy and understanding is noticed immediately and many words aren’t needed. You simple communicate without words.

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”

The Shelter star Michael Pare recently sat down to chat with Punk Globe. Here’s an excerpt (below) and read the whole thing HERE.
PUNK GLOBE:

Please, tell our readers about your role in John Fallon’s The Shelter.

Michael Paré:

I loved John Fallon’s screenplay, “The Shelter”. It is a special kind of horror. All the demons are created by the victim. Regret, remorse and guilt, created despair,depression and self loathing.
