Shelley as Erika in Blind Fear
Shelley starred in the 1989 movie Blind Fear where she played Erika Breen, a blind switchboard-operator on her last night in an isolated resort lodge in Maine. The lodge had been sold by the owner and had just been closed up. That night, a group of criminals seek refuge at the lodge, striking fear in Erika (who went undetected) and her only companion, an old man named Mel. Erika is left to defend herself in the only way she knows how, by cutting power at the lodge and taking advantage of the dark and her knowledge of the place.
