100 - Double Feature - The Shining (1980 & 1997)

Unread post by PodBot » 5 months ago

We’re playing the new horror game, Man of Medan, right now and will be sharing the video as soon as we can! Keep an eye out! CW: Alcoholism, Child Abuse, Spousal Abuse, Filicide, Suicide It’s our 100th episode on Pod Sematary! And a Double Feature! Chris & Kelsey watch one of the greatest horror movies of all time based on one of the greatest books written by one of the greatest horror authors of all time! And then we see the 4 ½ hour miniseries adaptation that the King likes better! The “Original”: The Shining (1980) "A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where a sinister presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from both past and future” (IMDb.com). Stanley Kubrick made what is, in Chris’ opinion, his best film with The Shining, but how many points does it lose for being a notoriously bad adaptation? The “Remake”: Stephen King’s The Shining (1997) "A recovering alcoholic must wrestle with demons within and without when he and his family move into a haunted hotel as caretakers” (IMDb.com). ABC’s miniseries is much more faithful to the book, having been written by the man himself, but does its accuracy hurt its potential as good television? Get more at podsematary.com!
