Following his talk about his book Filmish: A Graphic Journey through Film, cartoonist Edward Ross introduces this 1980’s classic in the surroundings of Chester’s Town Hall.
Based on Stephen King’s novel, Stanley Kubrick brings to life this psychological horror film. Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) becomes winter caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado, hoping to cure his writer’s block. He settles in along with his wife, Wendy (Shelley Duvall), and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions. As Jack’s writing goes nowhere and Danny’s visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel’s dark secrets and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hell-bent on terrorising his family.
