THE SHIN­ING

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

GO!, Wed­nes­day, 9.30pm, AV15+ ( 1980)

Sparked by writer’s block and a se­ries of para­nor­mal en­coun­ters, Jack Tor­rance ( Jack Nicholson, pic­tured) turns on his in­creas­ingly hys­ter­i­cal wife ( Shel­ley Du­vall) and haunted son ( Danny Lloyd), while act­ing as care­taker of the Over­look Ho­tel in Colorado, dur­ing the snow sea­son. Stan­ley Kubrick’s loose in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the Stephen King novel is com­monly cited as the truest horror film – one that cre­ates an at­mos­phere of men­ace and fore­bod­ing through sheer power of sound, im­agery and per­for­mance. Filled with clas­sic lines (“Heeere’s Johnny”) and un­for­get­table se­quences.
