"What I want the audience to do is to fall in love with these people, and really to care about them and that creates the suspense that you need. Love creates horror."


No one is better at creating lovable and believable characters.

BTW...his Gunslinger books are the post-modern equivalent of Dune or Lord of the Rings.  They basically tie almost all of his novels together...

... will Dan Lloyd, who played little Danny Torrence,
have a part in the sequel DOCTOR SLEEP ... assuming
it will be filmed?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All work and no play — Dan Lloyd who played Danny Torrence
in 'The Shining' went on to be a pig farmer and a high school teacher


Dan Lloyd, 40, who played Danny Torrence in the 1980 classic 'The Shining' when he was 5 years old, tells The News of his life after the Kubrick masterpiece, which included a very average life.


BY HUGO DANIEL AND DANIEL BEEKMAN / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS



TONY TAAFE/COLEMAN-RAYNER/MUST READ - ANTHONY TAAFE/COLEMA

Lloyd holds a picture of himself from the movie "the Shining".


For three decades, horror fans have been asking author Stephen King, “What happened to that kid actor from “The Shining” who screamed “REDRUM!?”

The un-scary truth: he became a pig farmer and science teacher.

“The Shining” is back in the spotlight now that King has finally published “Doctor Sleep,” his long-awaited book sequel.

When he failed to reappear on the silver screen, apart from one other small role, some fans speculated he was in hiding. Internet rumor-mongers have suggested that Lloyd hates the “The Shining” and blames it for ruining his life.

The reality is less glamorous.

Quote
The sequel could lead to a comeback for Lloyd if “Doctor Sleep” is adapted for the screen.
“I would be up for a cameo for sure. ... That would be fun” he said.


In "Doctor Sleep" a now middle-aged Danny Torrance is
called on to save a 12-year-old fellow psychic from a tribe of
vampire-like villains.

Radio 3Fourteen - Rodney Ascher & Andras Jones - Room 237: Stanley Kubrick's The Shining http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiB0vMEEpTk

4 November 2013, RedIceRadio

Rodney Ascher is the director/editor of the film ROOM 237, a documentary exploring the signs, symbols, meanings, and metaphors five very different people have discovered within Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.

Also joining in is Andras Jones an actor, musician and the author of Accidental Initiations: In The Kabbalistic Tree of Olympia.

He is best known for his role in Nightmare on Elm Street 4. We'll discuss possible sub-textual messages in The Shining.

What was Stanley Kubrick really telling us? What was he really involved in?

We talk about how Kubrick played on the ignorance of the viewer, leaving visual information, clues in the corner but people often missed them.

Are the synchronicities, symbols and messages found in Kubrick's film intentional or was a higher force working through him?

Then, we'll discuss the work of Will Morgan who compiled footage pointing out the synchronicities in the movies Andras Jones appeared in.

Andras elaborates on how these syncs paralleled with his life off camera, just as others have pointed out this same phenomena with many other actors.

We end on the big question of where human kind is heading just as Kubrick speculated on man's future in his film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Everything that Kubrick put in his films is important. He started out as a photographer and every frame of his films communicates something. He used to insist on hundreds of take in some cases.

I don't think there's any other film-maker who has ever had such a borderline obsessive compulsion re shot composition. Absolutely fascinating to study.

I suspect they have a special propaganda department in place which checks the net everyday to counter every article that undermines their 'we did go to the moon' myth.

Because when I just had published the answer I got from Japan on my question if their KAGUYA satellite spotted any evidence of any moon landing they also came up with this BS 'evidence'.

The BS answer I got from the Japanese btw was that their equipment didn't had enough resolution to record any evidence of alleged former moon landings. LOlz

The Shining - The Gold Room

I am very much impressed with Rob Ager’s film analysis of the hidden gold story in Kubrick’s: The Shining.

The evidence is overwhelming and very strong. I even got inspired by Rob Ager in finding, what might be yet, an other clue:


On the walls of one of the vaults, posters from the 1940s are still visible, from when the vast room was used as a canteen.

The walls must be literally bombproof as they were used by bank staff as air raid shelters during World War II.

The old-fashioned posters that hang around the room depict sunny climes, luxury cruises and happier times – which may be as welcome a sight as the valuables for many.”

The Shining: Multiple Personality Disorder/Dissociative Identity Disorder

The Shining: A family can be scary enough
31 October 2012
, (Minds Work)
http://www.mindswork.co.uk/wpblog/the-shining-a-family-can-be-scary-enough/

Excerpt:

Modern iterations of psychoanalysis tell us what children may do in the face of a trauma like child abuse.

They “split,” dissociating aspects of themselves to protect them from further harm (the most intense cases being that of DID [Dissociative Identity Disorder formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder]).

In this case, Tony seems a sensible psychological creation to guide Danny through difficult and rational fears of his much bigger and potentially dangerous father.

From the psychological perspective, his psychic visions are simply the “psychic reality” of the horror he feels at being left alone with his obviously weak and slightly hysterical mother and a father who harbours a potentially abusive beast within.

From a psychological perspective of a small child, there is no need for the supernatural – a father off the rails is scary enough.

Yet the person who actually wrote the book thought there was a need for it.

If that fact bothers the author of the above article that much, perhaps he should contact Stephen King directly and lecture him about how to properly write a horror novel.

IceCap's Keith Decker Lists Three Scary Movies: "Jaws", "The Shining" And "The Rise Of Interest Rates"

The Shining (Stanley Kubrick, 1980) – Talk about slowly scaring the pants off you. Many movie aficionados are adamant that this Stephen King adaptation is the scariest film in the history of the world.

After all, the slow burn that transformed Jack Nicholson’s character into an unpredictable psychopath was scary indeed.

In the end, Jack’s character and the audience got what they deserved – a very chilling finale.

A Detail You Probably Didn't See: THE SHINING 2

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNvXaubxzrE

Video about how a lot of the movie is actually Jack's novel...the psycho action only takes place in his imagination.  There are at least 3 of these videos but this is the only one I've watched.  The others are longer and I guess go into more detail, but he makes his case with this one.
