We’re back! And as promised it’s time to talk about the classic haunted hotel story The Shining. We talk about the book, the two adaptations, and add a short story selection to our line up for each episode. Since we’re talking about haunted hotels we figured the best short story to team up with The Shining would be 1408. We also discuss briefly the movie adaption starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. Some clips in this episode are of a story about Stephen King on Primetime Live, Stephen King at a live event telling a story about when he first talked to Stanley Kubrick, Shelly Duvall and Kubrick but heads on set but she talks about their working process, Jack Nicholson chats about what you bring to the table when working on a Kubrick film, and finally John Cusack does an interview with a show in France about working on 1408. Music is from The Shining (1980), The Shining (1997), and 1408. Check out our friends at The King Cast and the Everything’s Eventual Movie. Enjoy!
