John "The Arrow" Fallon talks The Shelter & more in new interview!

A great new interview with Arrow in the Head founder John Fallon has been posted over at PunkGlobe.com. Fallon's directorial debut THE SHELTER is currently making the festival rounds and seeking distribution, and in this chat with Sadie Duarte he talks about the encounter that inspired him to write the screenplay for THE SHELTER, as well as the experience of making the film. As he says:

I can almost write a book about the very strange things that happened around The Shelter; mostly during the writing and post-production stages.

The Shelter works on many levels at the same time and who you are and how you were raised spiritually will define to some degree what you'll get out of it. With that said, themes of faith (or lack of), betrayal, taking responsibility for one's actions, personal demons and forgiveness are all present. That is the obvious; there's also another more subtle and weirder layer happening all at the same time that I won't discuss

Starring Michael Pare, Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Lauren Thomas, Daena Turner, and Amy Wickenheiser, THE SHELTER has the following synopsis: 

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?
