/* ---- VIDEO INFORMATION ---- */

Ok so the Shining is one of my favourite movies of all time. Depending on what day it is the top spot for me switches between this, the thing and the godfather. It's one of those movies that has stuck with me since the first time I watched it and I remember being about 8 years old scared out of my mind after my first visit to the overlook hotel. But why does it have this long lasting power and influence. I mean on the surface you could be forgiven for thinking that the movie is extremely simple. As a kid I thought it was pretty much just about a family who were given the job of looking after a hotel and the dad went crazy and tried to kill them. However there's so many hidden layers to the film and throughout this video we're gonna be breaking down all the subliminal ways that the movie messes with you along with it's hidden meanings.

Now the biggest head f**k is the hotel itself.

King came up with the idea for The Shining when visiting The Stanley Hotel out in Boulder Colorado. He and his wife booked it October 30th which was the night before it was just about to close for the season. They were the only two guests there and King spent the night wandering the long hallways of the hotel swept up in just how creepy a place like this could be if it wasn't teaming with guests.

Now the idea of Shining comes from the John Lennon song Instant Karma.

-

This idea that people imprinted into something long after they're gone is what the Overlook embodies and it's seemingly filled with the souls of those that it's trapped along the way. Traumatic events leave longer lasting impressions and this is why it's teaming with all sorts of evil spirits.

This is one of my favorite movies! I have seen it 283 times and counting. I have seen many things that other people never noticed. Next time you watch it, look at Ullman's desk you will see a cigarette in the astray then suddenly it's gone. Look at the television Wendy and Danny are watching. There is no plug anywhere! When Wendy is pacing back and fourth talking about leaving she is smoking a cigarette, suddenly Danny starts screaming redrum. Wendy runs in and where did her cigarette go?? Lol she was only a few feet away from Danny smoking and as she runs in the room it's gone! There are so many more. Sometimes being anal attentive sucks! 😆😂😆 😁

The shining is one of the best known mainstream films to use the concept of liminal space as a source of fear. Not dark shadowy corners, not cobwebby mansions, not an atmosphere of midnight…but brightly lit, endless corridors of loud carpeting, an empty space that should be busy, endless halls and doors…

If I have one criticism of this film, it's that Jack Nicholson already looks like he's about 1 hair from going insane/breaking right from the get go. I even thought that as a kid, and found him creepy and subconsciously knowing "yup, that guy is clearly going to go nuts". As always, great video.

Same. I actually read the book before the movie, and Jack Nicholson was nothing remotely how I imagined Jack Torrence. I do still love this film, even though I enjoyed the book more. I have to look at them as two separate stories though. Kubrick definitely went his own way. I adored Dr Sleep though. Mike Flanagan did an AMAZING job of combining both source materials

@Elena Christian maybe in UK and Europe this was the case. But in America the roaring 20s cane from great markets and high profits.. The stockmarkets got too greedy and then the depression in the 30s. The people at the hotel in 1921 represent that debauchery and nihilistic materialistic behaviour.

One of my favorite scenes of this whole movie, and it actually follows the book well in this scene, is the bathroom moment with Grady. It is sooo well done and gives you this ever increasing unsettling feeling. I was so excited when I came to this scene in the book too. It's interesting because Grady actually was a gruff alcoholic like Jack, it's only after the hotel obtains Grady that he becomes this proper speaking/looking gentleman. "I corrected them, sir." One of the most chilling lines in any horror movie ever. ❤️

Kubrick uses this "okay, mask off time" motif in a few different movies. In Eyes Wide Shut, Sydney Pollack's character tries lying but gives up early on when he sees it's not working, and cuts to the chase. Grady tries to act normally until he's pushed further and further, and then just cuts the BS.

The story is about a boy who is a sensitive, and you’re right. Jack was also a sensitive, and it made him vulnerable to the spirits in the hotel.

I love the idea that there are no ghosts and the only paranormal occurances are Danny and Jack's shine. How Kubrik could manipulate the story as a director to tell a completely different story of child abuse alcoholism and mental unraveling is something I like to believe in. It would also explain why Stephen King hated it so much.

I believe the reason this movie was so successful was that much of it worked on the unconscious level. Much work was put into messing with the mind, sort of like gaslighting, to make the ciewer feel confused, off balance, nervous and anxious. ALL WITHOUT A SINGLE JUMP SCARE. No feeble juvenile tactics to build tension, but a masterpiece of subliminal mind !uck.

a few pieces of trivia; I like the way the twin girls turn around by pivoting in a very strange way as if they're connected at the hip the kid who played Danny didn't actually see any of the scary stuff like blood flying out of the elevator, etc. Stanley Kubrick just asked him to act scared and he didn't even know he was in a horror movie until he was in high school and happened to see it on TV

@Katie Allen Depends on what you mean by a long career. I loved fairy tale theater way more than the shining, if I'm completely honest.

The filming took place almost exclusively at EMI Elstree Studios, Hertfordshire, England, with sets based on real locations. Only some of the interior designs of the Overlook Hotel set were based on those of the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park. Though the Timberline Lodge in Oregon served as the exterior of the Overlook Hotel for daylight shots, a complete relica was built for the snow scenes at Elstree.

Yes. I think the part about the hallways and windows, etc are just details that maybe even the movie folks didn't care to exact upon so much. Unless this has been an often talked about thing throughout the years the place being setup "wrong" or "spooky" just seemed like something movies will do knowing people won't notice or care about it. They just made the hallways and etc go the way they wanted it to be filmed.

I think the shape of the hotel shot jumping to the ladder shot is supposed to imply the shape of a teepee. The hotel is evil because it’s on a Native American burial ground, that’s canon from the book. Also, it’s implied in the book that because the hotel is alive, the hotel can “move” or “shapeshifter,” hence the appearance/disappearance of different hallways, rooms, doors throughout the movie.
Smart Cookie

Yeah, the whole Native American burial ground is the thing that ruined King's story for me. Most tribes would leave the body to naturally decompose in a tree or on a funeral platform, or by leaving an opening in the burial chamber so the spirit could escape, not below ground like the book implies for a hotel to built upon.

The reason Jack was easy to manipulate was because of his alcoholism. That's the thing with addictions (and embracing of sins or weaknesses of flesh in general), Demons will use them as leverage in their games of manipulation and a means to worm their way in and start pulling strings. They used Jack as their puppet to go after Danny who was more protected by his innocence and purer soul (he has less weaknesses for them to exploit). This is what they do--use easier marks as pawn against tougher and more prized targets. Their goal is always the same in the end--it's to make all men fall by falling away from the Prince of Life by any means necessary.

y'all, addictions and substance abuse issues are caused by gaps in our social networks, unemployment, untreated depression and mental illness, poverty, lack of opportunity, and hopelessness. Not demons. But yeah sure in the movie maybe ok. I prefer the theory that Torrence drank to dull his psychic ability. In fact, it was only after a long period of sobriety that Torrence began to hallucinate, so in a sense the drinking protected him from that vulnerability.

I've always known the skeleton scene. I always believed it meant Wendy was finally able to see the hotel in it's truest form but could be wrong. Yes, if you've never seen it before it could be a little jarring, I'd imagine.

I haven’t seen a video that mentions it (though I’m sure there is one), but it seems conceivable that the two girls also had the Shine, which would explain why they didn’t like the hotel to the point of trying to burn it down. It would also reinforce the idea of the Shine being a hereditary trait shared by Mr. Grady and his daughters, which is why they are all still there. The daughters may just be stuck in “Overlook Purgatory” and really do want Danny (and Tony) to stay and play with them because they’ve had nobody their age at the hotel with the Shine before. There may be no sinister intentions from the girls, just a high creepy factor. Maybe it’s in the novel, which I read so many years ago I can’t remember. I prefer the film to the novel, which may be a unique instance for me, as I can’t think of any other case of a film being better than the book (for my tastes).

@Serious Bismuth While I agree that his behavior was most likely abusive, I think a lot had to do with Shelley's personality. Basically she seemed like a very neurotic person. I think Kubrick chosed her because of how vulnerable she seemed but the combination of Kubrick being very demanding and Shelley being very neurotic had this unfortunate effect. Sure, Kubrick should have chosen a better approach in handling her, but I think most actresses would not have behaved like she did in her situation.

@ttintagel It's like they mistake the well posed, sort of dignified acting in dramatic scenes for how people react in real life, so when they see actors acting like how actual people would react in such a situation they see it as over the top or unrealistic because it looks ugly and undignified (the facial expressions mainly). Reality is unrealistic basically.

Her “acting” was COMPLETELY annoying and unbelievable.. She made the movie corny… They should have casted a more believable actress. Even the child actor’s acting was more believable than her acting. I literally stray away from the movie because of HER. She was a mess and not because her boss wanted more from her. She clearly earned that role because of her performance on the CASTING COUCH 🛋️ , not because of her “outstanding” acting skills. Oan: She looks weird asf too. 😂 She could have atleast used to that to her advantage in the movie. 🥴

The hotel has two sides? Maybe one side is guiding Wendy and Danny towards how to escape knowing the other side is planning Jacks attack. The bats in the perfect place, Danny’s trike trips are actually him unknowingly practicing maze patterns, Danny wakes Wendy with a knife and message he was given of redrum to signal to her of the incoming threat. I think the hotel plans to take Jack while the innocents who were just collateral of evil acts in the past are working to save Wendy and Danny.

I watched this yesterday after originally seeing it in a theater in 1980. I like how Danny leaves his kitchen hiding place to draw Jack outside. Danny then again reveals himself to Jack and runs into the maze, with Jack following. Danny takes control and leads Jack to his death outside the hotel, which is perhaps significant.

My favorite film of all time. Closely followed by the Thing. I have visited the Staley and have watched the Shining more times than I can count. I once used tape to divide my screen into four equal sectors and watched the entire movie observing the symmetry in almost every shot. Without question my favorite element of the film is Danny riding the "big wheel" through the hotel. The sound as he moves across carpet and floor. The pattern in the carpet. Awesome film making.

I feel the line "You've always been the caretaker. I should know, I've always been here." relates to the incarnation of Jack's vices. He's met the bartender, we know he's always been an alcoholic. He's met the lady in the bathroom, we know he's always been a womanizer. But there's been a murderous part of himself that has always been there though it's never manifested until now. Jack is the caretaker of his roster of vices. He's the main personality housing alcoholism, womanizing and murder. And while the first two have always been apparent, the murderous side has always been there hiding and now it's come out. Jack is the caretaker of his "three ghosts". It's like someone with multiple personalities having one of their personalities say to them: "I've always been here but you're in charge."

I was wondering why Kubrick put that painting of the woman in Halloran's bedroom and then thought that it was an ideal and subtle way to show that Halloran wasn't married- which would make dropping everything in Florida (where Halloran lived in the off season) and traveling back to the Overlook far easier.

I am absolutely addicted to "The Shining." I saw it in the 80's when it first came out and after it came out on video I revisit it every year and sometimes twice a year! Despite the fact that the movie "sits" in one location: the Overlook, each plot scene is unpredictable because Kubrick was a genius. While it must have been difficult for the actors, Kubrick knew how to expand the consciousness of the audience and the context of each scene. By the end of the movie, one can almost "smell" the Overlook as one watches the movie. No movie that I know has ever done this!

I think the Overlook Hotel is like the monkey's paw in that it gives each person who enters it what they want, but always in a twisted fashion. Recall Danny told Wendy he wanted someone to play with in Boulder; now he gets the twins saying, "come play with us, Danny." Wendy is a confirmed ghost story and horror film addict, so now she gets the full horror story treatment, complete with cheesy skeletons. Jack wanted a second chance and to be respected for his achievements, so the hotel gloms onto that and gives him the "mission" of killing his son. I'm not sure what Dick Halloran wants--maybe he's special because he can resist the hotel's attempts to tempt him. BTW, in addition to the nude photos in the boiler room, there's instructions on how to help someone who is choking--and someone chokes Danny around this time. One question I do have is what is the significance of the little piece of paper Jack is holding in his hand when he's in the Baphomet pose in the 1921 picture at the end of the film--some kind of magic spell, maybe?

One of my favorite disturbing scenes - that few mention (so maybe it's just me) is while they are driving to the hotel - filmed from the height that it is and just the angle of it and the loneliness of if make me feel disoriented and creeped out before the movie even starts LOL! I was lucky enough to actually see The Shining in a movie theatre about 10 years ago, and that scene was amazing in the format in which you're intended to see it.... Loved your video by the way.

Even if the impossible rooms with doors that lead nowhere, was unintentional, when I watched the movie at a friend's house, I noticed some of the sets made an actual floor plan & that was one of the two things that gave me chills. I thought it was part of the hotel being a living breathing entity, churning & changing so that a door could take you into a ballroom, a hallway or a suite, The other thing that made me shiver was when Jack looks over the model of the maze and sees his wife & Danny in the maze, The elevator door unleashing a river of blood, room 237, most of the hallmarks & scenes most people found terrifying didm't really scare me. Okay, Scatman getting hit with the axe was frightening, but primarily it was a jump-scare.

Thanks for covering that window in Ullman's office, I remember watching the movie in my teens and feeling so unsettled by that scene, but I couldn't pinpoint WHY it left me that way.

Always just told myself the hotel is an impossible shape, or in other words while walking space-time warps around you so that the halls and stairwells line up. Wouldn't get into it, but I got a whole backstory that it was cursed even during construction. With the workers building stuff that didn't make sense, getting lost, and not understanding how things are working out. Edit, to add this goes for any continuity errors too...

The hotel is alive in the film. Jack showing up meant it captured his soul. The photo isn't a real photo, its something created by the hotel. The picture is a picture of the damned. The hotel warps time and space as well. The hotel tries to lead its victims to its heart.

I'm in the opinion that pretty much everyone in the film has the Shining. The hotel attracts them like a magnet. Wendy has it, but it only works when she is afraid. Note the line where Jack says she's a horror movie buff. So when she's freaking out she Shines the Overlook into a haunted house full of skeletons and spider webs.

I took it to be disingenuous banter by Jack, during his job interview. He says she's a confirmed horror buff, but we see her reading Catcher in the Rye and watching Summer of '42. Granted, she had limited entertainment options but if Kubrick was interested in confirming what Jack averred he had opportunity.

In the book it's explained that Wendy has it a bit because she's a mother and I guess most mother's shine a bit and the novel also heavily implies Jack shines too but he's so broken as a person and has shoved it away so much that he isn't aware of it nor can he actively use it. I really do highly recommend reading the book cuz it actually answered a lot of questions I've always had about the movie. You even find out who the people are in the scene with the dogman.

Ambitious. Good job. You could do 10 videos on this (as others have done). You covered a lot of ground well. Kubrick is known to have been reading Carl Jung prior to writing this - and he is quoted as saying it’s about being “uncanny”. I do think you make a good case for the Overlook to retain the spirits of the horrors that happened within it. I do believe a major theme is Jack having been molested himself. This is represented by the Bear costume. And Jack molests Danny in room 237 (which is their apartment with cartoon colors - so Danny can distance himself from the abuse). Danny’s escape from Jack in the maze - represents Danny breaking the chain of child abuse - and that’s why Jack is shown smiling at an “Independence Day” party at the end. His eternal spirit is free. One more thing - Danny is called, “Doc”, as in Bugs Bunny - and Wylie E Coyote is in those cartoons too. Jacks frozen face looks like something out of a Bugs Bunny cartoon - not a real “death face”. There are several cartoons where Wyle E Coyote is “frozen” after failing to capture Bugs or the Road Runner.

I think that the events that take place while he’s watching the hotel this particular season are all in the book he’s writing…which is probably similar to king’s novel. It’s why there are set inconsistencies like the type writer, the gold room sign, furniture changes etc. also why Charles shifts to Delbert, and girls 8 and 10 shift to twins. In the book, like a dream, things are based on everyday life, but some things shift. Also think of what Tony tells Danny…” it’s all just like pictures in a book….it isn’t real.”

Room 237 is so nice and beautiful I love that color combinations of purple and green. I wouldn't mind living in that hotel, if it wasn't cursed of evil. It always bothered me about how they made such a mistake with the maze and it being out back but the overhead shit shows no maze anywhere in the back or anywhere near the hotel, not one at all. Weird

Hello. Great video. I have something to add. The term "shining" is used on James Taylor's album "Sweet Baby James". At least twice on the album (Carolina on My Mind and Suite for 20g). This album came out in 1968, well before " Instant Karma" . It is also worth noting that James Taylor was originally signed to Apple records so it isn't a stretch to think Lennon heard the lyrics and took the term "shine" from James Taylor. And I wouldn't be surprised if Taylor got it from someone else. It would be interesting to trace the roots of the term "shining".

I saw The Shining when it hit theaters. I was just a couple of weeks off of turning 12. My mom hid her face for half of it, but when she tried to cover MY eyes, I squirmed away and ran down to sit closer to the screen. I was hooked. It's been my favorite movie since then. I'm 54 now, and have ZERO regrets. I feel like I got to grow up learning the ins and outs of Kubrick's genius along with the rest of the world. The 1980 US release was impeccable. I can't come close to imagining what more Stanley would have done with the Shining given time and budget.

I've seen this movie countless times, and probably watched nearly every video of someone discussing it I could find and this is the first time I've been made aware of The Red Book being on Ullman's Desk. Yet another entry to the list of things about this film that I literally can't be convinced Kubrick didn't do intentionally. How fitting the stories of Jung conversing and trying to understand his inner demons fits with the themes of the film, it has to be intentional.

Not that he would do it, but if Kubrick was still around, it would be cool to see him do a reaction to this breakdown. Well done. The movie theater "The Alamo Drafthouse" played The Shining a few years back, and Danny Lloyd (the actor that played the little boy, Danny Torrance) gave a talk and held a Q&A at the event. It was very interesting.

I just read a story from 2021 on how Shelley Duvall has had so many struggles over the last few decades. It was heartbreaking to read and to see her physical transformation was unexpected. I dare say I would not have recognized her if it were not for the article. I also had no idea of the infamous Dr. Phil interview either. That was awful. I hope Shelley is able to find peace within herself that allows her to be healthy and happy. I have entered a rabbit hole this evening that would rival the complexities of the Overlook’s maze!

Great work! I agree that this is my favorite Nicholson performance. I always felt bad for Shelly on how difficult this process was on set. I think Kubrick was channeling his inner Hitchcock. Her performance is inspired though and in my opinion sets the bar for all the “final girl” horror endings that proliferated the 1980s. This movie always made me think of a Norman Rockwell painting. The closer you look the more there is to find. Kubrick is notoriously an obsessive compulsive perfectionist and I think every item visible is every frame was specifically there or no there, on purpose. It this fact that there are so many theories about this movie. I always thought of the Overlook as a glimpse into Kubrick’s mind. The impossible rooms, windows, doors and moving furniture. Great work can wait to see Doctor Sleep!

I read a theory that had Wendy's perspective be the "real" story. The physical space of the Overlook changes--the pattern of the carpet, the light switch placement, depending on Wendy's memory of the space determining the set up. And that when she traps Jack in the cooler, everything after that is only in her head. It was really interesting. The movie plays differently when taken from each character's perspective.

I remember seeing this movie as a girl, but it was edited for television, so other than the obvious horror of the wall of blood and Jack's murder / attempted murders, it was never scary until I watched it with a pair of headphones on a few years ago. The audio right in my ears took the whole thing from uncomfortable to terrifying.

What is almost ALWAYS overlooked (pun intended) when these "explanation" videos come out is Kubrick's almost constant fascination with Gematria (and also King's). A lot of the names and themes in the movie and book are based on their numerical connections. So, for example, here are a few: Kill = 44 Genocide = 44 Torrence = 44 Fourty Two = 44 Shining = 44 Mirror = 44 I could be mistaken, but I also think that Wendy *could* swing the bat exactly 44 times.
You Know Where You Went Wrong
This is without a doubt my favorite Kubrick film. There's SO much there, and after all these years, you've pointed out to me things I've missed after dozens of viewings. Certainly divisive when released (Kubrick was nominated for a Best Director at the Saturn Awards AND worst director at the Razzies, so there you go) I think he pulled career defining roles out of the leads (despite a few of those actors lamenting their treatment after the fact.)

Charles and Delbert Grady were 2 different people that had worked at the hotel. The names are not script errors. Besides the girls being twins (not 8 and 10 yrs old) and Grady's names, the era is different. The ghost soiree Jack attends in the Gold Room is clearly set in the 1920s whereas Charles Grady was the "previous" caretaker before Jack, according to Mr. Ullman, which would be the 1970s. Delbert worked at the hotel in the 20s and Charles in the 70s.

I love the idea that the shine is not only genetic but it affects ppl differently. Both Jack Torrance and the Whites (Carrie's parents) have the shine, but Jack and Carrie's dad are mentioned having drinking problems, and Carrie's mother is just cracked. Jack and Carrie's parents seemed to experience their shine as mental illness, Margaret White literally thought it was the influence of the Devil. Makes you wonder what happened to them to cause that reaction to their shine, when other characters like the Losers Club in Derry, Carrie and Danny Torrance can use their shine effectively.

I noticed from this video that the version of the maze that Jack looks at and sees Wendy and Danny walking through contains an inverted cross (25:13), whereas the actual maze model in the hotel doesn't. Also if you look closely at Danny's toys (27:06) they could be a subtle hint at sexual abuse too.

Excellent breakdown. I never noticed the similarity between Baphomet and Nicholson’s pose in the 1921 picture. That raises questions about how much Kubrick’s imagery in “The Shining” is intertwined with his later occult imagery in “Eyes Wide Shut,” which has several references to Satanism, Babylonian paganism and Freemasonry.

The architectural anomalies are something you don’t necessarily pick up consciously, but they add to the feeling of _disproportion_ (is that a word?) that in my mind at least was very disturbing. I felt so unsettled watching this movie, even though the only thing I really knew about it was the “Heeere’s Johnny!” moment. Even though I was (by design) a step ahead of Shelley’s character, she made me feel her growing horror. I remember groaning out loud when she picked up the manuscript. It was a powerful performance; it’s really sad to hear how she suffered in the making of the movie.

Great breakdown of a true film for the ages. I agree with you on the skeleton scene. I’ve always thought that a Native American chief standing, center frame, looking past her, should have been used at some point in that sequence. The skeletons, I think, represented the past and how her reality was slipping away. No matter, Kubrick was a genius.

After years of contemplation (yes - years) I thought the photo at the end indicated that jack Torrance (Nicholson) had been possessed by the spirit of the man in the photo and that presumably his appearance in real life was not as he was portrayed by Jack Nicholson. We, the audience are finally privy to this as the plot twist is revealed in the final shot of Nicholson in the photo along with the year it was taken. Nicholson is portraying the evil spirit that resides in the hotel and not Jack Torrance, the writer. Thoughts?

I always thought the "impossible" layout was just because they needed to stitch disparate shots together. Like the dry storage room. It's clear when they first go in that there are windows right next to the door on the outside but a block wall on the inside, now that you pointed it out, but most people are paying attention to the conversation that's happening. I don't know if I believe all of the impossible architecture was intentional to make things feel "off". I think some of it was just done to make the shot better, or longer. Lots of movies and TV shows have exteriors that don't match the interiors, and room layouts that don't match the hallways.

This rabbit hole goes pretty deep. I've seen an entire Documentary just on the hotel layout I'd agree that yeah it's a movie set so obviously they are refusing the same set for different shots but considering how deliberate everything in the movie is I buy into the theory that the Hotel is somewhat malleable considering it's long history and having different layouts for each "Ghost" trapped in purgatory.

I could see connecting Jack's change over to Red clothing after his dream of murdering his family as being a representation of a Red Right Hand from Paradise Lost which in the poem specifically speaks refers to God's vengeful hand against the devil, but around the mid 20th century became a term used for any vengeful actions that could be considered a divine or primal right to vengeance and retribution against those you deem wicked. Jack had been made to believe his family was the root of all his suffering around the same point he has this dream and the colour change occurs, so in a twisted manipulation of a demon or king of hell kind of way John was the Red Right Hand of the Overlook protecting it from people that would stop its feeding or destroy it outright.

Room 237 was also symbolic for the moon being 237,000 miles from earth and the JFK character being a symbol for JFK as he announced we would land on the moon. I don't fully believe this was the purpose of the film but it's always interesting to me to just say what if.
