Greetings internet dwellers!
Well, it's been a weird one. We've seen what happens in recent years, when communication breaks down behind the scenes. The announcement of The Shining, a property which I know is a special one, was not meant to be done like this. Another victim of wires crossed behind the scenes, let leak early that the property was coming.
Anyway, so, The Shining, the Stanley Kubrick classic, is headed to the event. On a personal note, this one, doesn't excite me like it does some. As a Stephen King fan, I love the book. However, Kubrick's movie, isn't something that I am overly fond of. Sure, Nicholson's performance is fantastic, and it is a well done film, but it's not a film that I hold a fondness for. This is also one of those films, despite having seen it multiple times as a young lad, I was inundated with at film school. So perhaps, there is a subconscious personal grudge I hold against it these days. In fact, I just went back to watch it, in preparation for the house. It was the first time I had seen it, in close to 15 years.
Nevertheless, the powers that be, gave some details on what to expect with the house. Charles Gray, said on the blog: "You’ll come face-to-face with the murderous, ghostly entities around every corner. And of course, the best part will be trying to escape the sharpened edge of an axe." He also said, this about the Overlook Hotel itself: "We cast the Overlook Hotel as the aggressor and view it as if you have the “shining.” Our goal is to have you constantly doing a double take and give you that, “Did I just see that?” feeling."
