Thriller The Shelter with Michael Paré now available worldwide on Vimeo on Demand!

facebooktwitterby feather


The critically acclaimed psychological thriller “The Shelter”, starring iconic actor Michael Paré (“Streets of Fire”), is now available for viewing around the world, thanks to its newfound home on Vimeo On Demand: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thesheltermovie.

The film, which the L.A. TIMES said was “remarkably ambitious” and was “a concise genre piece that doubles as a heavily metaphorical character sketch”, had previously been released on DVD and VOD in the United States, and was also sold in various countries around the world including Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, South Africa, Sweden and South East Asia.

But now the rest of the world gets their chance to watch the psychological suspense film which critics loved at the London Frightfest, as well as the Sitges Film Festival.

The film is about a homeless man named Thomas (Michael Pare) who finds shelter for the night within a lavish abandoned two-story house. He eventually discovers that he is not alone and the premises won’t let him leave.

“The Shelter” marked ArrowintheHead.com founder John Fallon’s directorial debut, a renaissance man who had previously written 12 films and acted in over 20 movies before directing his own. The first-time director said that “Since The Shelter’s domestic release, we’ve done all that we could do in terms of the classic distribution routes, but now it’s time for us to splash the film around the world, so that fans from anywhere can watch it whenever they want, from wherever they are!”

The film was shot entirely in Louisiana and provided lead actor Michael Pare with some of the best reviews of his career including kudos from WeAreIndieHorror which said that he gave “one of the best performances of his long career” and AintItCool.com which said “Pare really gives it his all here, plunging to emotional depths I never thought he was able to do and doing them with a real sense of soul.”

John Fallon’s The Shelter starring Michael Pare now on HULU!

shelter-1“Fallon’s film will probably polarize most audiences, as it boldly goes where most films daren’t – relating a somewhat in-congruent tale that does anything but spoon-feed viewers” – Scream Horror Mag

We are happy to announce that THE SHELTER was just recently added to HULU. We hope that folks that watch it via that platform get something out of it.

If you enjoyed the film, take the time to post your reviews or/and give us your STAR rating on IMDb.  You can also own the film on DVD (with director commentary and interview with star Michael Pare) or see it via other PLATFORMS.

Young actress Daena Turner talks making The Shelter!

facebooktwitterby feather


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.
