We just got our hands on the official sales trailer for Josh Stoddard’s Sheltered, along with the following synopsis:
“JEN, DENISE, TODD and SUSAN – four lifelong friends – set out to make the most of their ill-advised vacation by blowing off some steam at a traditional hurricane party. Their plans change however, after they pick up a pair of nature-worshipping surfers and stop in town for a drink. There they meet JOEY, the charming but awkward proprietor of the bar. Joey is instantly drawn to Jen and the chemistry between them is as odd as it is powerful. He invites the group to weather the storm at his home and after a few false starts – they accept.
Jen and the others are escorted to the house by BILLY, a cagey and aggressive drifter whose peculiar connection to Joey is unknown. Billy’s presence alone unnerves the group but it’s his violent temper that eventually steers the party in a darker direction. Unfortunately the only person seemingly able to control Billy’s rage is Joey – and Joey’s having a difficult enough time controlling himself. Together they share a grisly and disturbing past, one which threatens to destroy everyone in the house. As the night wears on and the storm intensifies, Joey and Jen find their attraction growing even as Joey’s precarious grip on sanity crumbles away.
Is Joey crazy or gifted? Is he the puppet or puppeteer? And is Jen the key to his salvation or his damnation?”
