Barry Lyndon

Stanley Kubrick’s contribution to great cinema of the 1970s offers his vision of what an epic should be. Transported by images that recall great paintings of the period, and Kubrick’s new approaches to low-light cinematography, we witness a rogue’s progress through troubled times. And even Ryan O’Neal is good!

Forever and Ever and Ever: Uncanny Doubles in ‘The Shining’

Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 masterpiece is full of doubles, doppelgängers, and alter-egos.

Mirrors, ghosts, doppelgängers, reflective surfaces, repetitions, and perfectly symmetrical frames…these are just a few cinematic devices which Stanley Kubrick uses to create an uncanny atmosphere in his 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining. Sigmund Freud defines the term “uncanny” in his essay “‘The Uncanny’” as something which is familiar yet somehow frightening. The Shining tells the story of a family of three — Jack (Jack Nicholson), Danny (Danny Lloyd), and Wendy (Shelley Duvall) — whose lives are terrifyingly disrupted when they move into the Overlook Hotel for the winter. Family is, by definition, the most familial subject matter, and therefore it is all the more terrifying when one’s family members somehow seem different. The Shining is filled with uncanny doubles, where those who look or act familiar are mysteriously different, which provoke feelings of terror. Kubrick creates this uncanny atmosphere by meticulously crafting a story-world

The Shining and the immortality of evil

Ryan Lambie Apr 10, 2017

What's The Shining really about? We delve into the underlying theme of Stanley Kubrick's horror classic...

Few horror films have been as closely studied and intimately dissected as Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. The simple story of a family ripped apart by the effects of a remote, haunted hotel, Kubrick's film has only grown in mystique since its release in 1980. Clearly, there's far more going on below the surface, but what does Kubrick's imagery and symbolism - much of it unique to the film, and absent from Stephen King's source novel - actually mean?

'The Shining' Prequel 'The Overlook Hotel' Brings on Director Mark Romanek

'The Shining' Prequel 'The Overlook Hotel' Brings on Director Mark Romanek
Mark Romanek has entered negotiations to direct The Shining prequel The Overlook Hotel for Warner Bros. We reported in May that Gravity director Alfonso Cuar&#243n was the studio's top choice to direct The Overlook Hotel, but it seems a deal was never reached.

The Overlook Hotel is based on the original prologue that Stephen King wrote for The Shining novel, which was cut before the book was published in 1977. The prologue tells the origin story of The Overlook Hotel and its first owner, Bob T. Watson, a "robber baron" at the start of the 20th Century who set out to build the greatest resort in America, nestled within the Colorado Rockies, where he and his family also lived.

We reported in April that Glen Mazzara, a former showrunner on AMC's The Walking Dead, signed on to write the screenplay. The writer recently turned in his first draft to producers Brad Fischer,

'The Shining' Prequel Eyes 'Gravity' Director Alfonso Cuaron
Gravity director Alfonso Cuar&#243n continues to be in high demand at Warner Bros. Just days after he entered talks to direct the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the filmmaker has emerged as the studio's top choice to make The Shining prequel The Overlook Hotel.

Schmoes Know reports that the "ball is in Alfonso's court" for the project, but it isn't yet known if he plans on accepting their offer.

Back in April 2013, we reported that Glen Mazzara, the former showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead, will be writing the script, which is set years before Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) moved into the hotel in The Shining. Schmoes Know reports that a script has just been turned in, although it isn't known how well-received it was by the studio. Laeta Kalogridis, James Vanderbilt and Brad Fisher are set to produce.

No production schedule has been set for The Overlook Hotel,

30 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom'

Thirty years ago, "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," the much-awaited follow-up to "Raiders of the Lost Ark," debuted. Indiana Jones was back -- although the film was set earlier than the events of "Raiders" -- and this time, he had a dame (Kate Capshaw) and a kid (Jonathan Ke Quan) with him. Oh, and he wasn't fighting Nazis, just a deadly, child-enslaving cult.

If you're not old enough to remember, this (along with "Gremlins" and "Poltergeist") was the movie that prompted the creation of the PG-13 rating, after parents complained that a PG-rating wasn't adequate for a movie that includes a scene where a man's still-beating heart is ripped out of his chest.

But did you know that an Oscar-winning Hollywood legend almost had a small role in the film? Or what stars pranked Harrison Ford on the set? Didn't think so.

Here are 30 things you might not have known about the movie.

Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' with Delbert Grady Digitally Removed

Richard Trammell is hopefully enjoying his new found Internet fame following his digital tinkering of David Fincher's Fight Club in which he scrubbed out Brad Pitt's Tyler Durden and today he's keeping the theme alive as he set his sights on Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. The target here is Philip Stone's Delbert Grady, the Overlook hotel butler from the 1920s and clearly a figment of Jack's (Jack Nicholson) imagination. One difference in this removal is Trammell has decided to leave Stone's dialogue in the scene. Check out Trammell's alteration below and the original scene below that.

The Shining Prequel Gets Title and Writer

Warner Bros has announced that it's moving forward with a prequel to Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" and has hired "The Walking Dead" producer Glen Mazzara to write the script. The new movie is called "The Overlook Hotel." Very few story details have been released, but the focus of the movie may end up being on the Delbert Grady character, played by Philip Stone in the original film. He served as the caretaker of the hotel prior to the events in "The Shining." The problem is that Warner Bros may not own the section of the Stephen King book that delves into the early history of the haunted hotel, which was eventually removed from the 1977 novel. King is in the process of finding out if the studio owns the rights. "I'm not saying I would put a stop to the project, because I'm a nice guy [and] I'm always curious to see what will happen,

The Walking Dead Ex-Showrunner Glen Mazzara to Write The Shining Prequel The Overbrook Hotel

The Walking Dead Ex-Showrunner Glen Mazzara to Write The Shining Prequel The Overbrook Hotel
Glen Mazzara, who served as showrunner on the last two seasons of The Walking Dead, has been hired to write The Shining prequel The Overbrook Hotel.

We first reported on this project back in July, when Warner Bros. was in the very early stages of developing a prequel, set before Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) and his family moved into the forboding hotel. No story details have been given at this point, but there are elements of Stephen King's original novel that delved into the history of The Overbrook, which weren't used in director Stanley Kubrick's 1980 classic.

Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island), James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), and Brad Fischer (Black Swan) are producing through their Mythology Entertainment company. No production schedule has been given at this time.

Coincidentally, Stephen King is also revisiting The Shining with a sequel novel entitled Doctor Sleep, which focuses on an adult Danny Torrance,

‘The Shining’ Rewards Attentive Rewatching

The Shining

Written by Diane Johnson and Stanley Kubrick based on the novel The Shining by Stephen King

Directed by Stanley Kubrick

USA 1980 imdb

Quebec’s only documentary film festival, Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal – Ridm, starts Wednesday, November 7th. One of the most highly anticipated docs is Room 237, a film about the obsessive deep analysis of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film, The Shining. Theories explored in the documentary range from the plausible (The Overlook Hotel was built on an Indian burial ground and the ghosts are manifestations of the dead Indians need for revenge on the White culture that killed them) to the implausible (the film is a Holocaust metaphor) to – well, that’s a stretch (the film is a meditation on the myth of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth) to – wait What?

The Shining Prequel May Happen at Warner Bros.

The Shining Prequel May Happen at Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. is currently exploring a possible prequel to the 1980 Stanley Kubrick horror classic The Shining. The studio stressed that they are still in very early stages, and the project is not even officially in development at this time.

Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island), Brad Fischer (Black Swan), and James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man) have been brought on as producers, to explore a new take on the project. The story will be set before Jack Torrance and his family arrive at the foreboding Overbrook Hotel. Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, and Scatman Crothers starred in the original classic.

No screenwriters or directors have been attached yet, although it is possible that either Laeta Kalogridis or James Vanderbilt could draft the script, since they are accomplished screenwriters and producers.

Films To Watch Before You Die #88 - The Shining (1980)

The Shining, 1980.

Iconic set design: The Shining's Overlook

Ryan Lambie Sep 12, 2016

The Shining's Overlook hotel remains one of the most disturbing locations in horror. Here's its history, and how it tells Kubrick's story...

Cinema is full of set designs so beautiful, you almost wish you they were real. Fritz Lang had vast chunks of city built for Metropolis. Joseph Mankiewicz nearly brought 20th Century Fox to its knees, so huge and sumptuous were his sets for 1963’s Cleopatra.

Thinking back over the course of movie history, how many films can you think of where the set itself is as big a star as the actors that emote within it? In Alien or Blade Runner, perhaps. The impossibly creepy motel and Victorian house of horrors in Psycho, maybe. The set in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, I’d argue, towers over all these.

In no other film has an interior felt so mundane and yet so palpably evil
