Special guest author Remy Nakamura returns to the show to discuss Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING, which he had never seen! Ink to Film’s Halloween Special focuses on the legendary adaptation of Stephen King’s novel. Remy is a writer of weird, dark and Lovecraftian fiction. You can find his stories in Escape Pod, Pseudopod, and a variety of anthologies.
Topics include: Kubrick’s history of adapting fiction, how the director creates unease, Remy’s personal reaction to the story’s intimate violence, Shelley Duvall’s underappreciated performance, the supernatural vs. the rational, Jack Torrance as a the monster, Jack Nicholson’s method madness, the conspiracy theories surrounding the film, Jack’s role as caretaker, the romance of a typewriter, the difference of Dick Halloran’s role in the story, and finally Luke & James weigh in on which was better: the book or the movie.
Also, stick around to the very end to hear the announcement of our next project!
