The Torrance Family Portrait. by smalltownhero The Torrance Family Portrait. by smalltownhero
The Shining is one of my favorite horror movies.

Thought it would be a cool idea, to have a before and after family portrait. Just wanted to show the contrast between the happy and dark side.

Before Jack goes crazy, Wendy cries a lot, and Danny talks to Tony.

Even though Jack Nicholson looks menacing in any picture taken lol i think its his eyebrows.

This was originally a gif image where the first image would fade into the second one, but was too big!

Impressive clean-edged photoshop job as sharp as a bloody battle ax. This is going to be controversial but I think the Torrance family would be better off chopped up and ghosted in the Overlook Hotel fer sure. Jack could just get sauced on that advocat crap for all eternity without a nagging wife, Danny could romp around with those titular creepy twins, and Wendy could find some new purpose in her undead un-life where she isn't her husband's doormat. Like maybe her and the room 237 hag could go to Tuscany and 'find themselves' or something. Shit, the possibilites are endless really.

Very spooky contrast between happy-Jack and crazy-Jack especially. He just kind of becomes a monster...

...though I find that Wendy looks exactly the same. :XD:

This picture is so cool, but it is a sad picture too. I have began to read the book too and we get to know how their relationship where is the past too. And it's like..The familywhere struggelig to get the perfect family they wanted so badly, Jack had stopped drinking and they where heading for a new start, but it went SO bad! What they wished never ever happened and you can specialy see it in the look of Wendy that she is trying o hard in the first picture to make this family work together and there is a glimt of happiness in her face. Then in the second picture she looks frightned, not just because Jack has gone mad, but because she needs to realize that her dream of a perfect family never will happend and their realationship and family are totaly destroyed. The Shining is one of my favorite movies and Stephen King is awsome.

I love the movie, I sadly but true don't find it very scary, but still cool. I wish they could have used a little bit more parts from the book, but that is might too much to ask for. I'm not finished with the book, I like it so far. Anyway, good job ^^

I dont find it scary either, but the suspense is great. One of my favorite movies, the acting and directing is superb. The set and everything. Im glad they didn't use the 'hedge animals' coming to life from the book. lol
