Jack Torrance's new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel.

Danny was only five years old but in the words of old Mr Halloran he was a 'shiner', aglow with psychic voltage. When his father became caretaker of the Overlook Hotel his visions grew frighteningly out of control. As winter closed in and blizzards cut them off, the hotel seemed to develop a life of its own. It was meant to be empty, but who was the lady in Room , and who were the masked guests going up and down in the elevator? And why did the hedges shaped like animals seem so alive? Somewhere, somehow there was an evil force in the hotel - and that too had begun to shine

There's nowhere in the movie where Dick Hallorann lies, cheats, dumbs down, exaggerates, misleads or tells any falsehood to anyone at all. Any attempt at un-explaining this explicit statement that he makes to his friend Larry Durkin about why hes returning to The.

Overlook and who sends him there is pure speculation and a fabrication from the mind of someone that has another agenda, someone who doesnt want his statement to be true. But what Stanley Kubrick has him say is very explicit and we dont have enough information to make a wild guess that contradicts what Dick Hallorann plainly states. In the end, as in life, we either believe what he says because of the type of person he is or we dont.

There's no other information to go by in the film. But whats even more important is; his statement is either true or it isnt as Stanley Kubrick gives us no other explanation in the movie as to why he returns to the hotel. If its true, the implications of the sentence on how we view this movie are immense. His statement totally changes everything about what's actually going on under the surface of this movie because the phones are out and the only way his boss could know something is wrong at the hotel is if he sees the exact same vision of Jack walking into room as Dick and Danny see.

There is no other way he could know and the only information were given 30 from Stanley Kubrick about this is contained in that sentence. This is what totally frustrates so many of my readers who have a certain agenda. If you don't want to believe the obvious, that Stanley Kubrick gives the "Shine" to other characters in his film than you'll fight this sentence of Dick Hallorann's vehemently.

But you can't change it. Its obvious that this question must be answered. In the film does Dick Hallorann have any proclivity for lying?

Some may think he was he lying to his friend like he did in the novel. He didnt want to let Larry in. Maybe he was afraid to tell anyone else about his supernatural ability to Shine and see visions. Maybe he was afraid to tell Larry about the vision he saw of Jack in room because his friend would think he was completely crazy. But these are all just guesses because Stanley Kubrick only gives us one bit of information about this and it's different from the novel, Ullman phoned me last night, and thats it.

A lot of what Ive written about The Shining is only valid if Dick Hallorann is telling the truth as hes the only character that knows anything about the Shine. We really need to know if hes truthful or not if we ever want to truly understand this film. I was alerted to a spot in the movie where he appears, on the surface, to tell a lie so I investigated a little and ended up discovering one of the most important things about this movie that no one has ever realized.

Just who and what can you believe. Dick Hallorann: Well I think we can manage that too, Doc. Come along now. Watch your step. Hallorann, howd you know we callem 'Doc'? Beg pardon? You called Danny 'Doc' twice just now. I did? We call him Doc sometimes, you know, like in the Bugs Bunny cartoons. But how did you know that? Well I guess I probably heard you call him that. Well, it's possible, but I honestly don't remember calling him that since we've been with you.

Do you know how I knew your name was Doc? You know what I'm talking about, don't you? I can remember when I was a little boy; my grandmother and I could hold conversations entirely without ever opening our mouths.

She called it shining, and for a long time I thought it was just the two of us that had the shine to us. Just like you probably thought you was the only one. But there are other folks, though mostly they don't know it, or don't believe it. At first it appears he lies to Wendy by not telling her that the real reason he knows Dannys nickname is Doc is because he has a supernatural ability called the Shine. If hes deceptive here I cant state that he never lies, and my belief in the sentence above,Ullman phoned me last night But again in Kubrickland all is not what it appears to be.

This quote is actually a goldmine for proving that Dick Hallorann is not a liar at all. This is just what I needed even though I never thought I would have to prove that Dick Hallorann speaks the truth, being the hero of this story. It appears that Stanley Kubrick through his dialogue was well prepared for this conundrum and he has his characters give us the answers to our questions from their own mouths.

The lie appears to be here; Well I guess I probably heard you call him that. He doesnt tell Wendy that he has the ability to Shine. A lie of omission? Thinking his explanation is false is understandable because we know, or at least we think we know, that what he said cant be true. Weve been watching the movie from the start and we never actually see him hear Wendy call Danny Doc. We know Dick has the ability to Shine but when he uses his special gift this early in the story we dont know yet how it actually works.

And they do call him Doc all the time. When he "Shines" does Dick read Wendys mind or did it actually happen the way he said, I guess I probably heard you call him that. It has to be one or the other. If hes able to read her mind than hes lying but if he actually heard her call him Doc then hes not.

And if he actually heard her call him Doc then not telling her about his ability to Shine is not a lie of omission either as he answered her question simply yet truthfully. There was no implication in her question as to whether or not he possesses a supernatural ability, or which of his many supernatural abilities he might be using on that particular day.

For these characters Shining is an unusual gift but I cant think of anywhere in the movie where one of them uses it to read someones mind. It doesnt mean its not there I just cant think of any. It doesnt matter anyway, its undeniable that there are several times in the film where people use it to hear conversations that are happening elsewhere. Stanly Kubrick gives us plenty of evidence that people who possess the Shine can hear conversations that occur out of earshot so what Dick Hallorann tells Wendy is the truth.

Dick did hear her call Danny, Doc before they met and Stanley Kubrick cleverly puts this into the dialogue so theres absolutely no confusion as to when Dick hears her use the 33 nickname Doc. She says, I honestly don't remember calling him that since we've been with you. His perfectionism is unbelievable as Stanley Kubrick has all the bases covered. Wendy obviously knows she said it earlier in the hotel before they all met. We know Dick Hallorann can hear conversations out of earshot but do we know for sure if hes able to know the nickname "Doc" by reading Wendys mind?

Well, rigorous logic wont work here but it seems that Stanley Kubrick has also addressed this problem for us, and the answer is again in the dialog he wrote.

This simple line is so easy to pass up as being unimportant. Jack says, Mr. Hallorann, I'm Jack, and this is my wife, Winifred. In the movie and novel it's her real name and Jack never uses the nickname Wendy inside The Overlook before they meet Dick.

Not only do we never actually hear the name but Stanley Kubrick shows us that example of how she's introduced and theres no evidence that Jack doesnt introduce her to everyone they meet in exactly the same way. Jack says, "Hey Babe" when he calls her up after. Ullman never calls her Wendy as we always hear him call her Mrs. The nickname Wendy is simply never heard in The Overlook until later. Knowing all this helps to explain this seemingly meaningless fluff sentence Stanley Kubrick added to the dialogue, Mrs.

Torrance, your husband introduced you as Winifred. Now are you a Winnie or a Freddie? Its obvious that Dick Hallorann doesnt know her nickname is Wendy and theres only one reason for this; when he Shined he simply never heard anyone call her Wendy in the hotel. He doesnt read her mind at all. There should be no confusion here; Stanley Kubrick alerts us to this by bringing up the two nicknames, Doc and Wendy and Dick heard only one, not the other; he knows Danny's nickname and doesn't know Winifred's.

Chocolate it shall be. The dialogue is clear. Were talking about Stanley Kubrick, a director who's inhumanly precise and in his movie unlike in real life Dick Hallorann never lies to anyone. Not Danny, not Wendy, not the forest rangers and definitely not his friend Larry Durkin. In asking for the Sno-cat he doesn't have to make up any story at all for Larry as to why hes going up to The Overlook in a snowstorm.

Not mentioning The Shine to Larry means nothing; its not a lie. Larry's question was, Whats the big deal about getting up there today and he answers. Larry didnt ask about what supernatural ability Mr. Ullman possesses. He doesnt lie to his friend and anyone that believes he does, is entertaining pure un-provable speculation as any proclivity for lying cannot be found in him in this story.

The Shining

The purest soul in movies. Someone that doesn't exist in real life. But in film we find people like this. The only person who lies in the film is Jack. Anyone who puts forth another explanation as to why Dick Hallorann would lie by saying that his boss ordered him back to The Overlook such as nonsense like we never actually see him get Mr.

Ullman's phone call or he's confused or was scared to tell Larry that he Shines are wrong. These are just wild unsubstantiated guesses by people who have other agendas to uphold. Like I said before, if you find a place where he lies or exaggerates post it on my blog otherwise he doesnt and I believe him at his word.

We have a movie about people who possess a supernatural ability enabling them to communicate with each other over great distances. I can't imagine how anyone cannot see that in The Shinings reality another of Dick Halloranns lines"there are other folks" is true and Mr. Ullman is included in that very small crowd 5 main characters inhabiting this film's reality.

It appears that Mr. Ullman knows something is very wrong at 35 The Overlook. Something that could only be known if he uses the exact same supernatural ability that enables Dick Hallorann to know the exact same thing.

There's no violation of the movie's reality in what I. Ullman "Shines" and sees the exact same vision of Jack in room with the old woman as Dick and thats how he knows whats happening in The Overlook. Don't forget the phones are all out. The implications of this in the film are far reaching yet the dialogue Stanly Kubrick wrote is precise and cannot be altered - it's part of the explanation of this movie.

Its hard not to take Dick Halloranns statements as gospel truth when you cant point to a single lie that he ever tells! Ullman phoned me last night. If he isn't lying then he's telling the truth. If you have concrete notions and all this rocks your perception of this movie, well thats just to bad because you cant change it and you'll have to live with it, even though you might never fully get it.

But why doesn't Mr. Ullman, if he can "Shine", just talk telepathically with Dick Hallorann rather than phoning him? Again from the pen of the director who is ready for that question, "But there are other folks though mostly they dont know it, or believe it. That's Mr. The answers are all in the dialogue, Stanley Kubrick left nothing out. Larry, just between you and me, we've got a very serious problem with the people who are taking care of the place.

They've turned out to be completely unreliable assholes. Ullman phoned me last night, and I'm supposed to go up there and find out if they have to be replaced. Dick tells us exactly why hes going back to the hotel and it isn't because Danny called - which he never does. But, there are other folks though mostly they dont know it, or believe it. Dick tells us that others have the same ability that he has, and some don't know it.

It's just that you know some places are like people, some shine and some don't. I guess you could say the Overlook Hotel here has something about it that's like shining. He isn't scared because he's lived there and knows of nothing especially in room that can hurt Danny. If he did he would have told him so.

You're scared of Room , ain'tcha? No I ain't. Hallorann, what is in Room ? He never lies to anyone; there is absolutely nothing that he knows of in room Just like they can see things that haven't happened yet. Well, sometimes they can see things that happened a long time ago. All of the Torrances see the same spook show because they all possess the same "Shine".

They also have the ability to see the future and the past. Remember what Mr. The visions they're seeing in The Overlook arent real. Not one vision in particular, not every other vision, not just visions on Saturday or Thursday, but every vision they see.

They can hear conversations that occur well out of earshot. The Overlook Hotel here has somethin' about it that's like 'shining'. The Overlook doesn't "Shine". Dick Hallorann is the only character in the "The Shining" that knows anything about the special supernatural power that they 37 possess. These statements are all from a board certified expert on the subject. A person who never lies or exaggerates, and in the framework of this movie's reality; I believe everything he says - his dialogue is not only the explanation of the "Shine", in it is the explanation of the entire movie itself.

Is there an explanation of the July 4th picture? The one question everyone who views The Shining wants to know is what does the black and white photo at the end of Stanley Kubricks film mean? The answer to the question of what the final July 4th, photo represents is found in the novel. Theres only one important black and white photo in Stephen Kings novel.

Its Jesus and you can read the excerpt from his novel if you click here. What he did to Stephen Kings novel is quite remarkable and has to be understood. | Leisure

In the film Stanley Kubrick is showing us the reverse of. It's exactly like the word, "Redrum". He was so bold in what he did that it starts in the very first shot of the film and no one ever noticed. The most obvious clue is in the colors he chose to use. Jack has an old red VW in the novel and it becomes a new yellow VW in the film. In the novel theyre saved in a yellow snowmobile and in the film it becomes a red Sno-cat.

Danny plays with his red ball in the novel and it becomes Jacks yellow ball in the film. The colors being reversed is only the beginning of an incredible hidden alteration of the source novel. Stanley Kubrick chose to create a mirror image of Stephen Kings novel and he altered Stephen Kings black and white photo of Jesus exactly the same way. In the film were 38 viewing the opposite of Jesus. In the July 4th, photo Stanley Kubrick has Jack posed as the devil click here.

The photo is a purposeful paradox; a true visual enigma on the screen and audiences have been wondering about it for a very long time. Without looking at Stephen Kings source novel its an enigma with no possible correct explanation, and when you first view The Shining you'll leave with the impression that Jack Torrance has been in The Overlook before.

But this assumption is way to simple and its also quite wrong. The July 4th photo is the most perplexing image in the history of cinema and everything were looking at in it is the opposite of whats true. Not only is it the mirror image of the photo in the novel but several things about it must be pointed out and addressed before you realize the true extent of whats been done here.

The key line that. Stanley Kubrick took from Stephen Kings novel about the photo is this, It was a big fake Click on each line for a more detailed explanation. Its not The Overlook Hotel. Its a New Years Eve party. Stanley Kubrick has it magically appearing, Shined, on the wall only in the last shot of the movie. Its not there at any other time in the movie. You cant be the reincarnation of someone who is alive at the same time you are.

Stanley Kubrick took Stephen Kings quote and has truly created, a big fake Jack isnt the caretaker and shouldnt be there, and whats printed on the photo is totally wrong; it isnt The Overlook were looking at, it isnt July 4th, it isnt and Jack isn't the caretaker. The entire photo was produced as a fake and we know this from Stanley Kubricks interview with Michel Ciment.

Jack Nicholson's face was airbrushed onto someone elses body. To quote Danny's imaginary friend Tony again, it's like pictures in a book , "it isn't real". The July 4 photo is exactly the same as the most famous fake photo in history.

When someone's face is airbrushed onto another body theres only one way to describe Heres a closer look at how meticulous Stanley Kubrick is as he inverts the entire scene with Danny and the pediatrician. Its from chapter 17 The Doctors Office in Stephen Kings novel and its easy to spot how even the smallest details are reversed.

Tony tells Danny to lock himself in the bathroom. In the movie he doesnt. Dannys pediatrician has a name, Doctor Bill Edmonds where in the movie this is reversed and we have an unnamed female Doctor. The three have to go down to Sidewinder to see Doctor Edmonds in his office. In the movie this is reversed and the Doctor makes a house call.

Danny is Stripped to his underpants, lying on the examination table. In the movie Danny wears his Bugs Bunny, whats up Doc sweatshirt. In the movie the Doctor does the reverse and just asks him a few simple questions. Doctor Edmonds seems to know something about Shining as he asks Danny if he smelled, "a funny smell, maybe like oranges.

In the movie the Doctor seems to know nothing about Shining. Danny tells Doctor Edmonds all about Tony. In the movie this is reversed and he will not talk about Tony to the Doctor. In the movie this doesnt happen.

Danny even tells Doctor Edmonds about Redrum. In the movie this is reversed and he doesnt tell the Doctor or anyone else about Redrum. Jack discuss Danny with Doctor Edmonds. In the movie only Wendy does. Jack tells Doctor Edmonds the story about how Danny, spilled some beer on a bunch of papers I was working on. In the movie its Wendy who tells the Doctor that Danny, had scattered some of his school papers all over the room.

Jack, broke his arm turning him around to spank him. In the movie he doesn't break his arm he, dislocated his shoulder. When they talk to Doctor Edmonds they both realize that Danny is able to read their minds as they never discussed divorce in front of him. In the movie this never happens and neither Wendy nor Jack has the faintest clue about his ability.

Doctor Edmonds points out to Wendy and Jack why Dannys imaginary friend is named Tony his middle name. In the movie the Doctor doesnt do this. Wendy knows that Danny has second sight and he demonstrates it to Doctor Edmonds. In the movie we have a total inversion as Wendy doesnt know much and Danny doesnt demonstrate anything to anyone.

Doctor Edmonds says this, "Does the phrase 'the shining' mean anything to you? In the novel Jack tells Doctor Edmonds that he hasnt had a drink in 3 months. In the movie Wendy tells the Doctor that Jack hasnt had a drink in 5 months. What did Stanly Kubrick do to Stephen King's novel. A film is not a book. The fictitious town of Stovington, Vermont is mentioned in 4 of Stephen Kings novels, and its the only direct visual link in the movie to his novel. Whats printed on Jacks t-shirt is meaningless to moviegoers but its a well-known name in Stephen King circles.

Whats interesting is that for some strange reason Stanly Kubrick shows it to. Its reversed because were looking at it in a mirror. The inverted word is a metaphor because as I will show you were viewing Stephen Kings entire novel the same way, in a mirror; Stanley Kubricks special mirror, his version of The Shining where everything may turn out to be the opposite of what you think. I cant think of any other movie where reading the source novel was so enlightening.

You cannot have a through understanding of Stanley Kubricks Shining without looking at what he did to Stephen Kings story. Viewers have often wondered why so much was changed from the novel but just exactly what did he do to alter the story? After reading it myself I discovered something else thats been cleverly hidden in the same fashion as the numbers I spoke about in the last section.

Something Stephen King has never said anything about even though he must have noticed right away. Stanley Kubrick, being one of the most intense perfectionists in modern cinema, didnt just randomly alter things from the novel as many viewers think.

Hes inverted them. Its like looking at the image of Jack in the mirror, the image we see is the reverse of whats real. I realized this with the colors of the two main vehicles in the story, and that's just the beginning. Stanley Kubrick meant for these color changes from the novel to be obvious and noticed and theyre a crucial part of the explanation of whats 44 happening in this movie. In the novel its not that easy to find the color of their VW as it is only mentioned once but just look at the VW in the opening credits of the movie; youll never forget that color.

In the. They're also saved in a red Sno-cat. In the movie Jack plays with his yellow ball and in the novel Danny plays with his red ball. The colors Stephen King uses in the novel for these major props have been inverted by Stanley Kubrick. He even does it with the sets.

Except that theyre in the same hotel or are they? Stanley Kubrick was very meticulous in changing all the places from the novel where the scenes in the movie occur. The location of The Overlook has even been altered. In the novel the Torrances are in Colorado. What we see in the beginning of the movie and when Dick Hallorann returns near the end is in the state of Oregon, not Colorado.

Not one major thing happens in the movies Overlook in the same place it did in the novels Overlook room and are different in each, the VWs are different and change from red to yellow, Jack works in the basement in the novel and in the movie there is no basement, theres no Gold Room in the novel and Jack meets Grady and Lloyd in the Colorado Lounge not The Gold Room.

In the end of the novel Wendy and Jack have their knock down fight in the hallway not in the apartment. The final chase takes place inside The Overlook in the novel, not outside like the movie. Even Mr. Ullman's office was changed. In the novel Jack has his interview in the Manager's office and the story starts there, in the. When he didnt change the exact location, like Larry Durkins Conoco or 45 the pantry, he alters something else about it.

He did a perfect job and these inversions cant be ignored. As Ill discuss later, hes also done this with the plot.

Hes turned the novel inside out. Stanley Kubrick has taken Stephen Kings work and held it up to a mirror, and what were seeing in the movie is that reflection. A reflection where, in typical Kubrick fashion, just enough obvious changes are puzzlingly noticeable The Hedge Maze and colors and just enough is left alone names and places , not being so obvious as to give it all away; the alterations are hidden exactly like the numbers he wants us to notice.

If you're interested in looking at more of the differences I've noticed between the novel and the movie, and how closely they relate to each other click here. If you have preconceived ideas the reversals Ive noted that he made to the novel are shocking.

Especially when you think of how he was able to hide all this in plain site. But if you go check it out what Ive writen is quite correct. Its not only correct but it cant be debated, altered or most importantly dismissed. In the novel he noted that readers would never know what Redrum meant without looking at the word in a mirror and he created a movie that cant be truly explained without looking at it in a mirror. Red is yellow and yellow is red, a true reversal of the source material and, as I show throughout.

Perfectionism without attention to detail can be a real train wreck but when a true perfectionist works average people look on in wonder at the world wind of intensity they create. When you think about the scope of the reversals here, the minute details that were altered and the time it must have taken, its a marvel to see and should be appreciated by all.

Heres an interesting example of the 46 inversions and doubling Stanley Kubrick made to the novel. The Grady girls, the most famous twins in history, never appear in the novel. This can't be ignored. Danny only meets up with the lonely invisible spirit of one single child in the playground in Chapter 34 page Now, in spite of the snow-dazzle, he thought he could see something there.

Something moving. A hand. The waving hand of some desperately unhappy child, waving hand, pleading hand, drowning hand. Save me O please save me. If you can't save me at least come play with me In the movie instead of one unseen child we now see two children who repeat the line together, twice, Come and play with us. Come and play with us, Danny, For ever and ever, and ever. Heres another interesting example of the inversions. In the novel Danny sees but doesnt understand what Redrum means and he mentions it to several people throughout the story.

In the movie this is all reversed and Danny never sees Redrum. If you look closely at the movie its Tony. Totally reversed; and Stephen Kings fans never noticed. The chapters and page numbers Ive included are all from Stephen Kings page version. Its impossible to pinpoint when Stanley Kubrick decided to alter the source novel the way he did but Stephen Kings style of adding many details to his work may have been part of its appeal to him.

He definitely had a brilliant source novel providing him a lot to work with. Heres another great example indicating how Stanley Kubrick shows us inverted mirror images of plot points from the novel. Take a look at the entire scene with the old woman in the bathroom. In the novel its Danny who disobeys Jack and Dick Hallorann by walking into room where he sees a dead women in the bathtub. In the movie were shown an entire reversal of this.

If you look very closely Danny never disobeys anyone, as he doesnt walk into the room. Its Jack that walks in and sees not 1 but 2 women in the bathroom of room In the novel Jack never sees 47 anyone as he enters the bathroom only to find an empty tub with no woman in it. He only thinks he hears her after shutting the front door, and she rattles the doorknob. He never sees her.

Its obvious everything in this scene except the names of the characters has been inverted. Even the bathrooms are in different rooms. In the novel its , but in the movie theyre in Its so subtle and barely noticeable unless you stop and really think about it, and the entire movie is like this from beginning to end. Stanly Kubrick is beyond. The movies dialogue is also inverted. In the novel Dick Hallorann says this, People who shine can sometimes see things that are gonna happen, and I think sometimes they can see things that did happen.

But they're just like pictures in a book. In the movie this line is very cleverly reversed because when Danny, after the beating, is in his catatonic state its Tony who says, Remember what Mr.

Halloran said. We never hear Dick Hallorann speak this line in The Overlooks kitchen. In the novel the place where Danny and Dick Hallorann have this conversation is outside of The Overlook in Dicks car, it's now been reversed to inside The Overlooks kitchen while Danny has ice cream.

It just goes on and on. Tony is Dannys subconscious mind that protects him just like any other normal persons subconscious does.

Whats unusual in the story is that Danny has the ability to Shine therefore his subconscious also has that special power. Stanley Kubrick made a huge inversion here as now Tony cant be seen, in Stephen Kings novel he can. In the novel Lloyd the bartender and Grady never speak to Jack with a mirror present.

In the movie this is also reversed as Jack speaks directly to both while looking directly at himself in a mirror. Stanley Kubricks attention to detail is unbelievable. Its from chapter 17 The Doctors Office in the novel and its easy to spot how the details are reversed.

Not only did he alter Stephen Kings novel but it appears that Stanley Kubrick may have left a special message just for him in the middle of the movie.

Click here for one of the more interesting hidden shots youll ever come across in a movie. I feel this shot is a very special visual message Shined from Stanley Kubrick to the readers of Stephen Kings novel.

Hes telling you what he did to The Shining? Just like 'Redrum' only makes sense when seen in the reflection of Wendys mirror Stanley Kubrick created a movie thats the same as the word Redrum. It will never truly make sense unless viewed in the genious directors special mirror. He even placed that reverse image of Stovington, as viewed by us, in the opposite side of the exact same mirror where we later see "Redrum" as the word murder.

It's clear; we must also watch the movie's mirrors as something important is hidden in their reflection. Sometimes its shocking to see how a screenwriter changes your favorite novel for the big screen. They changed this in the screenplay and I believe not having him speak throughout the story created a mystery that added much to the movies appeal. I can see how fans of the novel could be a little perplexed at what Stanley Kubrick did but you must admit he did an unbelievable job and Stephen King really couldnd say much about the alterations.

Again after seeing it he described Kubricks film as a big beautiful Cadillac, with no engine. He answered; My problem with The Shining was never the adaptation.

I certainly didnt mind the idea that it was more psychological than supernatural. What I didnt like was that I thought it was cold, and I always resented that. Im an emotional writer. I think thats why Ive written so many things that people term scary or horror. Im not that interested in what you think all the time, but I am interested in what you feel. I feel both stories are brilliant in their own special ways. Does Danny actually go into room ?

In the movie we never see Danny in room and there is a reason. You may be wondering how Im so sure that Danny didnt go into room because if you listened closely to the dialog Wendy tells this to Jack, No. It's the truth, really. I swear it. Danny told me. He went up into one of the bedrooms, the door was open, and he saw this crazy woman in the bathtub.

She tried to strangle him. But you must think about this for a moment. Danny Shines and sees visions throughout the movie, how can we know for sure that what he tells Wendy wasnt a vision of a woman in while he was standing there at the doorway or while he was somewhere else in the hotel? After all this statement is. Danny is beat up by something yet theres nothing in room that can hurt 50 anyone and the proof of this is in this statement by a person who has spent a lot of time in The Overlook, can also Shine and knows exactly what he's talking about; You're scared of Room , ain'tcha?

Dick Halloranns statement is crystal clear and cant be changed; if there was anything that could hurt Danny in room he would have told him so and the fact that he doesnt is very telling; Remember what Mr.

There isnt anything in that room but an echo of a past event that only a person who Shines can see. Stanley Kubrick plainly tells us this in the dialogue. Not things that anyone can notice, but things that people who shine can see" Jack obviously Shines. That's why he can also see the woman. Hes the only person out to hurt Danny. He beats him up during his nightmare and has the ability to make his son think it was a woman in one of the rooms.

Stanley Kubrick cleverly makes you think Danny went into room but he never does and this is another reversal of Stephen Kings novel where he certainly does go into the room click here. Theres a reason we never see Danny in and anyone who really believes he does go in should go to the end of my main blog and produce a screen shot of him in room to prove it. The Shining is one of the most enigmatic movies in history and the obvious visual images Stanley Kubrick placed in it can't be ignored.

There are hundreds of continuity errors in this movie but some of them were placed there on purpose and need to be looked at closely. Theres no question that Dick Hallorann has a special supernatural ability.

He Shines and talks telepathically to Danny in the storeroom and as he does a red Calumet can appears out of nowhere right next to his head, only to disappear in the very next shot when he stops "Shining". Unless you look closely you'll miss this.

When Jack talks to Delbert Grady the exact same thing happens as, now, several red Calumet cans appear out of nowhere right next to his head.

They also werent there when Wendy dragged him in. They just appear out of thin air the same way. Think about the similarities in the two scenes; Theyre both in the same place. Theyre both talking to someone in a supernatural way. And the same red Calumet cans appear out of nowhere on the shelves behind their heads. The red Calumet cans that appear out of nowhere are not some common run of the mill movie mistake, they're important to the story. You cant say Dick Hallorann is Shining and Jack is not when the exact same bizarre thing happens to both of them.

Stanley Kubrick has hidden something in these movements.

The increase in the number of cans indicates how much more of this ability Jack has over Dick Hallorann. This helps answer one of the most perplexing plot errors of this movie.

How is it that Dick Hallorann, inexplicably, doesnt know that Jack is hiding around the corner with an ax at the end of the movie?

Jack can simply out Shine Dick Hallorann who is unable to utilize his special ability to foresee the end his life. Dont forget the little hints that Stanley Kubrick sprinkles around the movie that point to Jacks ability to Shine like Wendy bringing him breakfast in bed and we hear the obvious play on words, I made em just the way you like em, sunny side up.

Theres something else in this scene that lets us know that Jack has the ability to Shine as we look at Danny obviously posed next to a different red Golden Rey box of sliced pineapples as he "Shines".

Get out your copy of the movie and listen to the sound effect we here during this scene: Theres no doubt that Danny is Shining" as he talks telepathically with Dick Hallorann in the storeroom. The weird sound effect we hear, as well as the red box, alerts us to this and is also part of the scene like the moving Calumet cans I just showed you.

How can you say that Jack is not doing the same thing when Stanley Kubrick lets us hear the exact same weird sound as he visions Wendy and Danny playing outside throwing snowballs at each other in the snow: When Dick Hallorann sees the vision of room again we hear a similar sound effect 1: This is never disputed, then how can it be any different when Wendy has frame for.

This is so obvious. They're seeing exactly the same vision of the bloody elevators and you cannot say that Danny is Shining when he sees his vision and Wendy is not Shining when she sees her vision. Its exactly the same. Danny doesn't "Shine" it into her head either. Stanley Kubrick goes way beyond meticulous here and you have to observe this scene very carefully. The scuff marks on the floor in front of the elevators show us something important. The point of view is different each time we see the bloody elevators so even though they're seeing the same thing frame for frame each vision is totally unique to that character; they are seeing twin visions.

The scene was shot with two adjacent cameras Wendys on the right and Dannys on the left giving each character their own unique point of view. Can you think of any other scene in the history of moviemaking that was shot like this? Wendy's ability becomes more apparent in direct proportion to her state of mind, but they are still doing the exact same thing and the pictures Stanley Kubrick placed in his finished work dont lie and cant be changed just like the ones of Dick Hallorann and Jack in the storeroom.

They both prove the same thing. Ullmans tie changes color right before our eyes in these two sections of the same scene. In the novel Dick Hallorann says this to Danny, "If there is trouble In the movie Dick. Hallorann never says this line and Danny never calls him. Theres another reason why Dick returns to 54 The Overlook from sunny Florida.

Stanley Kubrick gives this explanation in his dialogue in Dick Hallorann's phone call to Larry Durkin at the gas station, They've turned out to be completely unreliable assholes.

What he says is crystal clear and must have an explanation. Dick Hallorann never lies or exaggerates anything to anyone in the film or the novel. How can this statement be true? It can't be debated, he says that Mr. Ullman ordered him to go back to The Overlook but how on earth does his boss know whats happening at the hotel; the phones are out?

Ullman knows because he has the same ability to see visions as the others. Theres absolutely no violation of the movies reality here.

Stanley Kubrick simply makes an alteration from the novel and has another person viewing the same vision as Dick Hallorann, at the same time. Its just been hidden from the audience. Hes taken those words from the song and turned them into the movie's reality. In Stanley Kubrick's Overlook that means Mr. Ullman too. He Shines and sees the exact same image of Jack in room with the old woman that Dick Hallorann is seeing.

In "The Shining's " reality theres no other explanation as to how he would know something was wrong and order Dick Hallorann back to The Overlook.

Its now Stanley Kubricks "Overlook" and he can give that. Stanley Kubrick even puts this in the dialogue so there is no confusion of this fact, But, there are other folks though mostly they dont know it, or believe it. Ullman calling him, or lying or exaggerating about anything else in the movie click here if you believe this could be true? Wendy, Jack and Mr. Ullman can also "Shine".

You might not feel it in your gut yet but can anyone prove that they don't have this ability? Give it some time. At first this seems shocking as it's so cleverly hidden from the audience but you must remember it's Stanley Kubricks "Overlook" and he can do anything he wishes to alter the story; no matter what opinion viewers may have. He can hide anything he wishes but the pictures dont lie. Again, he even tells us in the dialogue what hes doing as Dick Hallorann says this to Danny about other people with their special gift, But, there are other folks though mostly they dont know it, There are only a few characters in this movie, who do you think Stanley Kubrick was talking about when he wrote this?

In the novel The Overlook covets Danny for his power and uses Jack to get it. What does it covet in the movie? Think about it for a second The Overlook is trying to kill Danny and ends up with Jack on the wall. Its obvious that in the. Why would The Overlook want him if he didnt have the most power to covet? At this point you may be wondering why Dick Hallorann only seems to pick up on Dannys special ability if these other people also have the Shine? Stanley Kubrick lets us know, there are other folks but why does Dick Hallorann only seem to pick up on Dannys special ability if these other people also have the Shine?

In the novel Dick Hallorann meets several people that have the Shine. He knows it right away and so do they A Shine knows a Shine, page Chapter Stanley Kubrick reverses the novel 56 again. In the movie a Shine doesnt know a Shine. The others dont know that they have this ability and he plainly tells us this in the dialogue, Though mostly they dont know it. Dick Hallorann is obviously not able to perceive it in them, and in the film hes the only one we know of who knows he has the Shine. Then I realized that I had a huge problem to solve because it appears that he knows right away that Danny possesses the Shine.

How could he not know about the others the same way? At first I thought that Dannys age has something to do with him picking up on it. But thats not it. Then I thought when Danny Shines in the game room seeing the twins, maybe thats when Dick picks up on his ability. But thats not right either. I went back to look at the scene again because I knew Stanley Kubrick wouldnt leave out the answer. I couldnt believe what I found;.

Stephen King - The Shining

Dick Hallorann doesnt know that Danny Shines at all. This seems crazy because its so incredibly well hidden by Stanley Kubrick in the dialogue. The obvious question should have been, do you know how I spoke to you in your thoughts and said, How'd you like some ice cream, Doc? But he doesnt mention the obvious elephant in the room. Because of the directors brilliant manipulation we all just assume that Dick Hallorann starts the thought transfer between himself and Danny.

This isnt the case at all, if you look at the film its Danny that Shines first and Dick Hallorann is then able to pick up on the boys ability. Thats when he knows for sure and transfers the thought into Dannys mind for the first time. In the film this is so important; Dick Hallorann only knows someone possesses The Shine if its directed at him. Again we know from Stanley Kubricks dialogue that there are others. And in a story with only five main characters it doesn't leave many for you to choose from.

How do you think those red Calumet cans behind Jack and Dick Halloranns heads appear right out of nowhere? And how about Mr. Ullman's tie? There are many explanations that could explain individual shots but taken as a whole its pretty obvious with going on here - it's intentional. Stanley Kubrick places them up front to be noticed. They're part of the movie and within the framework of "The.

Shining's" reality they must have an explanation. Either The Overlook does it or they did it themselves but whatever the answer; a supernatural power is involved. There's no other answer yet many viewers form their own rock solid opinion's choosing to ignore the pictures that Stanley Kubrick placed within the movie, or choosing to ignore the dialogue he put into the movie, or not reading Stephen Kings novel and understanding the alterations that were made to it.

Like the magically appearing Calumet cans and Mr. Ullmans tie changing color before our eyes, a supernatural power is involved. How can I proove that there are supernatural movements in Stanley Kubrick's Overlook?

There were supernatural movements in Stephen King's Overlook also. After all this is where Stanley Kubrick got the idea for the movie from and we must look there for some answers - and not ignore what we find. For me the best and creepiest part of the novel was when The Overlook animates certain objects for its guests. Its classic horror and Stanley Kubrick wouldnt leave out such a great plot point from the novel.

You just have to look very very closely if you want to see what actually moves. Three items move through supernatural power in the novel. The Overlook animates The Hedge Animals, the fire hose, and the elevators.

Theyre all possessed by the hotel and scare the crap out of the Torrances because they obviously can move on their own. But what Stanley Kubrick did to these three items. Hes totally inverted Stephen Kings novel and no one can dispute that these three items, glaringly if not hauntingly, remain totally motionless throughout the entire movie instead of moving by themselves click here. Stanley Kubrick is Shining a vision right into our heads.

Look at them all you like, because, in the movie, they will not move an inch the elevator doors only move in the visions - not in the hotel. This is telling us something important. Stanley Kubrick reversed what moves by supernatural powers in the novel and this leaves it open for anything other than these three items to move under mysterious supernatural circumstances; and in Stanley Kubrick's Overlook that's exactly what happens.

While he's scolding Wendy Jack pulls the sheet of paper out of the typewriter. After he's finished he makes another sheet appear back in the carriage again right out of thin air without touching it and without the audience hearing a thing. So many items move when they shouldn't how do I know that it's not spooks inside The Overlook that are doing this? Over ninety five percent of the movie is shot inside the hotel but there are scenes that take place outside of the hotel and these supernatural movements also happen in them.

After Danny "Shines" and sees the vision of the bloody elevators watch the yellow and red dwarf Dopey as. In sunny Florida, Dick Hallorann "Shines" when he sees room and makes the red painting above his headboard dissappear. The characters posses a supernatural ability that also enables them to alter their surrondings. This is what the movie is about a supernatural ability; "The Shining". What a brilliant way Stanley Kubrick chose to alter their special ability from the novel.

He works in the visual realm and made these characters supernatural ability look like a common movie mistake. Again, Stanley Kubrick tells us others have the ability to Shine in the dialogue.

But, there are other folks though mostly they dont know it, And one of them is insane. What's happening couldn't be more obvious. In the reality of the movie this must have an explination. The definition of psychokinesis aka. Stanley Kubrick has made it quite obvious that when they "Shine" cast members in his movie also possess the ability to supernaturally move or change the color of items.

There's so much to show. As he tries to save himself from his father, Jack "Shines" and moves the entrance of the hedge maze closer to Danny in order to entice and trap his son in the maze. Early on when we see this area several times, and in the hedge maze maps, theres only one entrance to the maze and its not on the wall facing the hotel.
