'Shelter' Looking for Freakish Imbreds, Albinos, Mobile Mutants

February 27, 2008


Reminiscent of the Star Trek casting call, or the end of The New Colossus, the upcoming horror film Shelter is looking for some mutants to join star Julianne Moore. Specifically, the release asks for men and women of all races, so long as they have the following freakish attributes:

Extraordinarily tall or short. Unusual body shapes, even physical abnormalities as long as there is normal mobility. Unusual facial features, especially eyes.

A 9-12-year-old Caucasian girl with an other-worldly look to her. Could be an albino or something along those lines -- she's someone who is visually different and therefore has a closer contact to the gods and to magic. 'Regular-looking' children should not attend this open call.

I hadn't realized that albinos lacked pigment because of their closer contact with gods and magic--I thought it was just genetics! Guess you learn something new about the accuracy of Powder every day.

And I won't even get into the obvious irony of a Julianne Moore film looking for the ghastly pale. I think we all get it.

Thanks for the tip, Matt.
