Fallon had this to say about THE SHELTER being accepted into A Night of Horror: 

"My short film The Red Hours premiered at ANOH in 2009 and I'm excited to have The Shelter screen there as well. It's a fine Festival ran by a solid group of people and it attracts a great crowd. I unfortunately cannot be there in person for the screening but I would like to say this to the ANOH audience: The Shelter is a moody, trippy and introspective film, hence set those gore and bouncing melons expectations aside. As opposed to what I have done in the past, this is not that kind of movie. Don’t go in there expecting a party, think more the mood of a funeral… :)”"

Some of the other films chosen to be a part of A Night of Horror's awesome line-up include LAST GIRL STANDING, LANDMINE GOES CLICK, MANIA, and BULLETS FOR THE DEAD.

THE SHELTER was very well received at its world premiere at the Film4 FrightFest in London back in August (read some of the reactions here), and followed that up with a screening at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain last month. Michael Paré, Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Brigette Rose, Lauren Thomas, Daena Turner, and Amy Wickenheiser star in the film, which tells the following story: 

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 film was executive produced by Bruise Productions and JoBlo Movie Productions, and is being represented by DC MEDIAS. Holbrook Multi Media completed production and post-production elements.
