In 1980, visionary director Stanley Kubrick released 'The Shining,' a psychological horror film based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. 'The Shining' follows writer Jack Torrance as he takes his family up to an isolated hotel to work on completing his novel. While there, his son discovers he has psychic powers, and Jack himself begins a descent into murderous madness. It's been 33 years since the film first terrified audiences, so join us as we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
“I'm going to get absolutely wrecked and watch two prints of the 'The Shining' projected over one another, one of which in reverse, and assault my senses to terrifying imagery letting my usual methods of interpreting story get tossed to the seas of synchromysticism.”
That was the plan at Fantastic Fest 2012 and, should the tinfoil hat Warhol-esque experiment known as 'The Shining Forwards and Backwards' ever make itself available to you, I strongly endorse making your open (and perhaps altered) mind available.
