For our 100th episode(!) and our final film of October, we’re breaking down one of the most iconic horror films of all time: The Shining! Which beloved comedian did Kubrick think was too psychotic to play Jack? Who did Jack Nicholson think should play Wendy? And to get Nicholson in the proper foul mood for shooting, they fed him WHAT for two weeks?? Also – we pitch a Don’t Wake Daddy game featuring Jack Torrance and groove to the sultry sounds of Grady and the Ghosts!


The Shining stars Jack Nicholson, Shelly Duvall, Danny Lloyd, Barry Nelson, Philip Stone, Joe Turkel, and Scatman Crothers; directed by Stanley Kubrick
