Date/time for the Sitges screening of John Fallon's The Shelter

Arrow in the Head founder John Fallon's directorial debut THE SHELTER made its well received world premiere at Film4 FrightFest (check out the recent positive press the film has gotten) in London at the end of August, and will soon be heading to the Sitges Film Festival in Spain. If you'll be at Sitges and would like to catch the screening, we now have all the details:

THE SHELTER will be shown at the Retiro theatres on October 9th at 8pm as part of the Panorama Fantastic section. John Fallon will be in attendance to introduce the film.

In addition to directing THE SHELTER, Fallon also wrote the screenplay and produced the film with Donny Broussard.

The official synopsis: 

On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas (Michael Pare) 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 so quickly. 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?

THE SHELTER stars Michael Paré, Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Brigette Rose, Lauren Thomas, Daena Turner, and Amy Wickenheiser. 

The film was executive produced by Bruise Productions and JoBlo Movie Productions, and is being represented by DC MEDIAS. Production and post-production elements were completed by Holbrook Multi Media. You can keep up to date with THE SHELTER on Twitter, Facebook, and at the film's official site.
