EP. 303.8 — The Shining
Paul & Amy hack through 1980’s chilling Stanley Kubrick horror film The Shining! They learn why Stephen King hated Kubrick’s adaptation of his story, weigh in on the many fan theories surrounding the film, and consider how both actor and director can shape the performances we see onscreen. Plus: is that thing in Room 237 a bear or a dog?
