John Fallon wraps The Shelter

It's been a while since we wrote about our bro John Fallon's feature directorial debut The Shelter. Long enough that the flick just wrapped production in Abbeville, Louisiana. Yup, the same place where The Blob remake was filmed.

I spoke with John yesterday, and he assures me he and his crew -- which includes top-flight talent like
director of photography Bobby Holbrook and visual effects supervisor Thomas Wilson, who worked on The Conjuring -- made a fucking good movie. My words, not his.

And John promises star Michael Pare gives one of the best performances of his career. That's some praise given the man has starred in classics like Eddie and the Cruisers and Streets of Fire.

The next step is post production, which begins any minute. We're pumped to see some footage and a trailer. As soon as we do, we'll share it with you.

Here's the plot: 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?
