The Spain premiere of John Fallon's The Shelter hits Sitges tonight

Our very own John Fallon (AKA The Arrow) is taking the world by storm. His horror flick THE SHELTER already tore through audiences at London's Film4 Frightfest. The next domino will fall tonight in Spain as THE SHELTER destroys psyches at the 48th Sitges Film Festival. It's all part of Fallon's quest for world domination. 

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

If you can't attend, here's a little tidbit from the man himself: "THE SHELTER was the film that wanted to be made. The bulk of the process from script to screen was very pure." 

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. 

Here are what some of the critics had to say:

”Pare really gives it his all here, plunging to emotional depths I never thought he was able to do and doing them with a real sense of soul.” – AINT IT COOL NEWS

“Fallon’s piece is piercing as a disconcerting family dreamscape.” – STARBURST MAGAZINE

“There’s a confidence to Fallon’s choices too, as he gives us a not particularly likeable protagonist and maintains a somber tone throughout this emotionally raw journey.” – SCIFINOW

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.
