Shellter Lands its Tenth Film Fest Entry
It's been around six months since we've heard any news about Shellter, which bills itself as "more than a horror film", but today we got news that the flick has landed itself its tenth entry in a film festival.
Adding on to the previously announced Shriekfest, Eerie Horror Fest, Shockerfest, Dark Carnival, Fright Night, Fargo Fantastic, HorrorHound, Phoenix Fear, and Cinema Slaughter, Shellter will be playing on April 23rd at the Bare Bones Film Festival, a film and music festival held April 15-25 in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
If you'll be in or around Los Angeles in early May, be sure to check out Shellter at Cinema Slaughter on the 7th at the Laemmle's Sunset 5 in West Hollywood as it may be your last chance to see the film on the big screen in the LA area.
Zoey (Cari Sanders) awakens in the medical facility of an underground fallout shelter. The Doctor (Will Tulin) explains that an infection has killed most of the population. The only people left are either a few lone survivors like her or the infected: the living dead. The Doctor is assisted by a Nurse (Maria Olsen), who it seems has gone completely insane. They “treat” a steady stream of survivors/patients. The only way of “curing” the infection is by surgically removing the affected area, which leads to gruesome results.
The Doctor wants Zoey to replace the unstable Nurse and become his new assistant. Zoey is very hesitant to join the Doctor, who is willing to do whatever it takes to survive, no matter how questionable or terrible the acts. But after a patient offers to trade places with Zoey and do “anything” the Doctor wants, Zoey realizes that if she doesn’t do it, someone else will do these terrible things to her.
Zoey has to decide what she is willing to do to survive, and the viewer has to make that same decision: How far would you go to survive?
