Three more enter John Fallon's The Shelter

Who's excited for John Fallon's directorial debut The Shelter? I know everyone here in The Basement is, for a variety of reasons. We eagerly await the start of production in January, 2014.

The horror flick is rocketing through pre-production and recently added three peeps behind and in front of the camera. They join legendary leading man Michael Pare.

First up is director of photography Bobby Holbrook, a second generation director, producer, cinematographer and production manager and part owner of Holbrook Multi Media, which has been in the business for 36 years. Sounds like the man knows what he's doing.

On the casting front, John has hired a pair of lovely ladies. Gayle James, who recently wrapped Bad Country with Willem DaFoe, Amy Smart, Tom Berenger and Mat Dillon, will play Pare's wife Maryam.

Rachel Whittle, who's appeared in high-profile flicks like G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Beautiful Creatures and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter plays Annie.

That's some high-powered talent right there, believe you me!

The Shelter will launch a crowd funding campaign to beef up its budget. Head on over to The Shelter's Facebook page to learn more about that and keep tabs on the film as it heads into production.

Here's the plot, in a crunch: On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas 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 that he did. Inside, there’s nobody in sight and he finds all of the comforts that he used to have. After taking a bath, feasting whole heartily 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, 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?
