Transcript of The Shining 1980

The Shining 1980
Shot reverse shot of Danny and the two girls then him then the dead bodies, builds tension and fear.
The fast paced editing towards the end builds to the climax.
More over the use of the black screen with the days or times, gives a sense of time passing and a showing Jack drifting into madness.
High pitched music/ wailing through out which is the main motif throughout the horror.
Dialogue- manager tells story of old caretaker, adds a sense of foreboding.
Close up/ focus in- Jack with sinister smile
Aerial shot/establishing shot of mountain setting.
Tracking of Danny going down the hallways.
Tracking of the maze was done by a Steadicam as it achieved having different camera movements without cuts. This built fear within the audience as they anticipated what would happen to Danny.
What type of Horror is it?
The movie would be classed as the unthinkable as Jack (a father and husband) wants to kill his own son and wife. It also is history repeating itself which isn't revealed till the very end which makes it also an intellectual puzzle.
Facial expressions- Jack changing becoming beast like
Setting- hotel isolated from all, perfect for a Horror movie.
Body language- Jack hunches like an animal.
Lighting- Dark/ low key in the maze builds tension and anticipation for the audience as what is to come.
Concepts of production

Freud idea of the Uncanny
Oedipus- killing his father then marrying his mother.
"Oedipus represents two enduring themes of Greek myth and drama: the flawed nature of humanity and an individual's role in the course of destiny in a harsh universe. " This highlights the flawed characteristics of Jack as he slowly starts to turn into a demonic human, but this is also showed early on in the movie with little Danny having an imaginary friend.
Theme - family (dysfunctional)
