The Shining (1980) – Episode 125 – Decades of Horror 1980s

Play

“Great party, isn’t it?” The ghosts are all calling this party a big success. Congrats to Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) for pulling it off. Especially with his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd) constantly nagging him about “please don’t kill us.” Pfft. Family, am I right? The Shining is a pretty big example of Stephen King adaptations, one commonly derided for not being too close to the book. Did Stanley Kubrick’s lack of faithfulness stop it from being covered on the show? You’re damn right it didn’t!

“Who the hell is going to believe a ritual sacrificial murder in 1982?!” Sgt Powell (Richard Roundtree) asking the question on everyone’s mind.

What?! Horror News Radio covering another superhero movie?! I know some of you may be pretty Thor about that, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had as The Grue Crew chums around Sakaar for Thor: Ragnarok.

“You ungodly warlock! Because of you this hotel and this town will be cursed forever!” An angry mob storms the hotel of Schweick (Antoine Saint-John), a warlock trying to keep the 7th doorway to hell at bay. Or whatever the hell is happening in this opening as he’s covered in queso. The Beyond – like many a Lucio Fulci film – takes liberties with logic and forward momentum in story. There’s a lot more emphasis on the horror of the images rather than a traditional narrative structure. It’s an acquired taste. But who amongst the Decades of Horror 1980s crew acquired this …
