The Shining (1980) – Kubrick goes Gothic
This article is a 1980 issue of American Film™ magazine chronicling the making of ‘The Shining’. We learn about Stanley Kubrick’s process for selecting which book to adapt for his next project (hint: it involves an endless hurling of books) to the nearly year-long production schedule, a timeline which itself seems frighteningly lengthy. It’s a fascinating look into the brilliance that went into the creation of a classic horror that can give you a chill no matter which season you watch it. The Stanley Kubrick classic was adapted from Stephen King’s acclaimed book of the same name.
