Imagine the mind f*ck he must have felt after watching the Shining for the first time
Meanwhile Shelley Duvall had to go to therapy to cope with the scariest thing about The Shining: Stanley Kubrick.
@SimonPetrikov, he was so brutal to her, that her hair started falling out while filming. Hes a sick fvck.
You seen the sequel yet? I haven't had the chance, but I've been meaning to.
@SimonPetrikov, Kubrick probably also could've used some therapy to cope with Kubrick.
@ThePandaPool , the sequel was great. I read the book years ago and it was translated very well to film. Doctor Sleep isn’t as scary or as good as The Shining, but some scenes were pretty brutal and hard to watch - in a good way. There’s some really fun fan service, especially towards the end. The fan service could have missed badly but they nailed it imo.
The villian is phenomenally acted and is one of the best horror villians we’ve seen in a while and the actress who played Abra knocked it out of the park. Ewan Mcgregor was great too, but that’s a given.
It’s a shame it kinda flopped at the box ofice, it was one of my films of the year. And maybe im a bit biased since the Shining is one of my favorite films ever, but you should see it when you get the chance.
@K1l, I was gonna watch it regardless, but now it's higher on my priority list. Thanks.
@SimonPetrikov, dude the actor who played the groundskeeper that gets killed fell to his knees crying at Kubrick asking him what does he want.
@SimonPetrikov, yeah the way I heard it he was very physically and verbally abusive.

More like garbage if you have ever even picked up the book, let alone read it
@dshira, I read the book several years ago but never got around to the movie bc I heard it was nothing like the book
@Rudolph Schmidt , Jack is sane in the book for 300 pages and then snaps. That’s where the terror comes from
Jack Nicholson looked crazy from the first second on screen so it just fell flat on its face. Basically Stephen King’s opinion of the movie too
@dshira, stephen king is wrong.
@cruss4612, you’re wrong
That’s awesome, that’s some good planning for the kid to be oblivious
@megamanx181x, Meanwhile the kid from Wes Craven's New Nightmare ran around on set with Robert Englund in full costume and was fully aware of he was starring in a horror movie. And from interviews he claims to have had a blast working on the film despite being a kid in a horror film.
That movie sucked and I have no idea why it’s so popular.
That’s because Kubrick was a professional and that’s how all kids should be handled I respect the fact that he bent over backwards to make sure that he was very sheltered... Shelly Duvall on the other hand... poor woman
He got to ride a big wheel around the halls and get paid. What could be better
I miss when cracked was good. Then it went to be about 3 articles about trump per day and some silly picture article with incorrect info. 2016 was the downfall of that site
@Thatbright, uh, what? This is about the shining, not cracked. Though i agree, cracked is lame now. The app doesnt even work
@cruss4612, I know but the text was from cracked
