Whispers torment Michael Pare in a new clip from John Fallon's The Shelter

John "The Arrow" Fallon's directorial debut THE SHELTER crisscrossed the globe last year, playing at the Film4 Frightfest in England, the Sitges Film Festival in Spain, the Southern Screen Film Festival in Louisiana, and the A Night of Horror Festival in Australia, where the film's star Michael Paré was honored with a Career Achievement award.

There are more festival screenings ahead for THE SHELTER in 2016, and while we wait to hear the specifics on those, a new clip has been released to give us a quick glimpse of Paré dealing with a strange, disturbing situation.

THE SHELTER is currently seeking worldwide distribution; distribution inquiries can be sent to [email protected] The story: 

Widower and homeless man Thomas (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. Inside, with nobody in sight, he finds all of the comforts that he used to have. After taking a bath, feasting wholeheartedly on some food and relishing the silliness on the tube, he gets some well-earned shut eye.

All is well until a restless Thomas wakes up in a panic and finds a loaded revolver resting on his lap. Baffled, he picks up the weapon, checks the barrel and notes that it is fully loaded. A visceral sense of unease invades him immediately. Something is very wrong and he decides that it is time to leave. Alas he finds out swiftly that the premises won’t let him depart. The doors are all locked, and the windows puzzlingly cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. Will he survive the ordeal? 

Paré's co-stars include Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Lauren Thomas, Daena Turner, and Amy Wickenheiser.

Fallon wrote the screenplay for THE SHELTER, in addition to directing the film and producing it with Donny Broussard. The film was executive produced by Bruise Productions and JoBlo Movie Productions.Production and post-production elements were completed by Holbrook Multi Media.
