Do you remember the 1983and roll movie, Eddie and the Cruisers? It was a pretty compelling flick and Michael Paré played the Bruce Springsteen-like character to perfection. Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! wasn’t half bad either. Unfortunately, although Paré remained a steady-working actor, he fell off of most people’s radars. At least until he made a splash in 1999’s The Virgin Suicides.
Though he’s no stranger to thegenre, Paré is slated to appear in a handful of films and TV roles in the next 12 months or so. One such role is the lead in the John Fallon-written, -directed, and -produced horror/ The Shelter, which will be released in theaters and on-demand on November 4th, and hits DVD on January 3rd.
Scream Horror Magazine says, Paré “steals each and every scene” and Ain’t it Cool News says, he “really gives it his all here, plunging to emotional depths I never thought he was able to do.”
Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Amy Wickenheiser and Daena Turner co-star.
The Shelter Synopsis:
On a star-filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas Jacobs (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. But soon enough, he realizes that the house won’t let him leave, as its doors are all locked while its windows cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. What does it want from him? Will he survive the ordeal?
