The Shining

The Shining, the book the movie and the mini-series, is explored in this episode of "Boys and Ghouls". Listen in as we trace the inspirations of Stephen King to pen this story of  horror between family members, alone with each other, in an isolated mountain luxury-hotel.  We follow its themes and devices as they are transformed when Stanley Kubrick uses the story to create a juggernaut of a horror movie. This episode was a long time in the making, so huge that we pushed it's release from the dead of winter, all the way to the dead of spring.  Kubrick also took a very long time to make his version of The Shining because, like the Boys and Ghouls podcast, Kubrick was also a perfectionist and a visionary. Enjoy listening!
