JOHN FALLON – BIOGRAPHY
After 3 years of acting school and two years of film school, John Fallon started his career as an actor, starring in over 22 productions from 2001 until the present day. Some of his credits include films such as Saw II, Alone in the Dark with Stephen Dorff, 100 Feet opposite Famke Janssen, the French sci-fi hit Dead Shadows and the action film American Muscle.
In 2000, he founded one of the most popular horror websites in the world, Arrow in the Head (part of the JoBlo Movie Network), penning over 1,500 film reviews himself, traveling the world for set visits, conventions and film festivals. The site is still striving high to this day. His accomplishments on the site led him to become a member of the Jury at the Sitges Film Festival, the Fantastic Fest Film Festival and the Fantasia Film Festival among others. Screenwriting wise, many of John’s screenplays were turned into feature films, including different genres like sci-fi (Recon 2022), action (Deaden and American Muscle) and horror (Trance).
Moreover, John is also an accomplished script doctor having lent his talents to such companies as Taurus 7, Seven 52, Ravenbanner, Lions Gate and Automatic Entertainment.
John began his directing career with the music video for the hit song Gasolina by Daddy Yankee, followed by the award-winning short film The Red Hours. His feature length directorial debut The Shelter starring Michael Pare (Eddie and the Cruisers, Streets of Fire) based on his own screenplay was released at the end of 2016 in theaters, VOD and now on DVD to critical acclaim. The LA Times said “The Shelter is remarkably ambitious. It’s a concise genre piece that doubles as a heavily metaphorical character sketch.” while Ain’t it Cool News said, “The Shelter is resonant in tone and spot on in execution!”
And as per the request of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, John Fallon‘s screenplay for The Shelter has been included in its Library and is now part of its permanent Core Collection for film students and Academy Members to have access to. John eventually opened up his own production company Bruise Production.
He has since produced/starred in the Medieval action film The Siege of Robin Hood, produced the horror film Woodland Grey, wrote and produced the acclaimed action short The Proposal, to then produce the high end Spanish thriller Dolorosa Gioia aka Sweet Pain for director Gonzalo Lopez. John’s next film will be the Templar driven historical thriller HERETIC from his own screenplay (written with Karim Cheriguene) starring action star Paul Sloan (Green Book) and Armenian superstar Arman Nshanian (Vigilante Diaries). Hollywood based Oscar Gold Productions are producing the picture.
