Get out your party favors, hookers and champagne flutes, cuz we've got some celebrating to do! John Fallon aka The Arrow, founder of Arrow in the Head and his team have wrapped production on THE SHELTER in Louisiana on January 19th, 2014.

The film is a supernatural thriller that stars veteran actor Michael Par (The Lincoln Lawyer, Eddie and the Cruisers) along with Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Brigette Rose, Anastasia Brook and Amy Wickenheiser. The film is financed by Bruise Productions and JoBlo Movie Productions, an affiliate of the film site JoBlo.com, will enter post production shortly and is at the same time seeking distribution.


Producer Donny Broussard, Writer/Director John Fallon and star Michael Par!

Fallon directed the film from his own screenplay, Donny Broussard (Little Houses) produced the film while Bobby Holbrook of Holbrook Multi-Media is its director of photography. Thomas Wilson (James Wans The Conjuring and Insidious: Chapter 2) acts as the films VFX Supervisor.

John Fallon has acted in over 20 films including such genre favorites as Saw 2, Death Race and 100 Feet, and has written 8 produced screenplays. This film is his full-length feature directorial debut, although he previously directed the award-winning short The Red Hours. Directing a feature has been my Holy Grail for 10 years. I am elated that my dream has finally come true. I was blessed with a relentless and talented team and a fearless lead actor and even with the hardships in tow, it was the most fun Ive ever had working on a film. Post Production cant come soon enough. We have something special on our hands.


Director of Photography Bobby Holbrook at work!

Par, a veteran actor with over 100 credits to his name was immediately intrigued by the films screenplay: The Shelter tells a great and painful tragedy. Not about global disaster or war or economic collapse but of the individual human heart. The human heart and soul is what all art seeks to unravel. Guilt, regret and shame kill the heart and soul. When our lower animal nature dominates our character our soul is lost."

The film's synopsis:

On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas (Michael Par) 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 wont 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?

Way to go! I remember when I made a short eight minute film a few years ago, it was exhausting and fun all at the same time. I can only imagine what a full length film is like.
