Rodney Ascher's experimental documentary Room 237, which explores numerous theories about the real meaning of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, is getting set to play the Toronto International Film Festival and we have some new stills. Well, sort of.
As if Film4 FrightFest wasn't enough, a cinematic gift is on its way to our friends across the pond. The longer U.S. version of the Stephen King adaptation starring Jack Nicholson will reach British audiences for the first time this Halloween.
Judgment is coming to Fantastic Fest with the red carpet premiere of Dredd 3D and the festival's initial lineup of incredible genre films. Fantastic Fest will take place September 20-27 in Austin, Texas, at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.
Here's a bit of news we didn't see coming -- Warner Bros. is apparently exploring the possibility of a prequel to The Shining, the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film based on the 1977 horror novel of the same name by Stephen King.
Father's Day: the hallowed holiday where we celebrate dads everywhere, even the shining examples of fatherhood that see fit to terrorize their offspring as if they were the enemy. Wait! Those aren't the dads we want to celebrate! They're part of the problem!
It looks like 2013 is going to begin with a bang as Stephen King's The Shining sequel, entitled Doctor Sleep, is being released on January 15th by Scribner. Just in case you're on the fence, check out the book's newly released synopsis right here.
There were few scenes more powerful in Stanley Kubrick's classic 1980 film The Shining than the one featuring the infamous nude ghost in the bathtub who seduces Jack (Jack Nicholson) before she transforms into a hideous ghoul.
Everyone loves a great horror movie villain. In their prime the likes of Jason, Freddy, and Michael could take a person apart in any number of ways. The only problem? People get old! What if they did, too? Read on for what is no doubt one of our favorite collections of fan images ever!
We use the term "Master of Horror" often. Sometimes it applies, sometimes ... not so much. But there is no arguing that Stephen King is not only a Master of Horror, but perhaps THE Master of Horror. And we're lucky enough to have a video of him reading from his upcoming book, the sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep.
Unfortunately, one Sundance 2012 film that we didn't get a chance to see and review was Rodney Ascher's experimental documentary Room 237, which explores numerous theories about the real meaning of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, but thankfully IFC Films is about to make up for it.
For my money neither of the adaptations (film, TV miniseries) of Stephen King's The Shining did the book justice, and it remains my favorite of everything he's written, which is why I'm really looking forward to its sequel, Doctor Sleep, and am super happy to pass on King's recent description of it.
We hate it when a plan falls apart. A couple of weeks ago, or was it last week? (so much new; so few brain cells)... Anyway, previous reports of a rare print of The Shining with an alternate ending being shown in New York have proven false.
I'm sort of ashamed to admit I only read "The Shining" for the first time this summer. But I'm a big Stephen King fan, regardless, and have kept up with the majority of his recent output. That's precisely why this bit of news excites me. King's been on a winning streak with his last few forays into the horror genre so what better time to hone a sequel to one of his most beloved works?
Oh, how we wish we were based out of Rochester, New York. Why? Because the Stanley Kubrick terror-driven tour de force The Shining will be playing up on the big screen like you've never seen it before.
With Morgan J. Freeman’s Homecoming hacking its way onto DVD today (courtesy of Paramount Pictures), we here at Dread Central thought it a perfect occasion to take a look back at our favorite on-screen axe murderers as a way of indoctrinating this new blood into the mix.
