As a classic of the Silver Screen, and one of Jack Nicholson’s most memorable performances, we couldn’t not create our The Shining Movie Poster. Now a cultural icon, the film has inspired many over the years, with multiple iconic scenes. We chose our favourite for our poster design.
About Our The Shining Movie Poster
The Shining is an absolute masterpiece in our opinion. Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 psychological horror sits with you for days after watching, and we’ve seen it far too many times. Jack Nicholson was in fine form, although interestingly Stephen King hated his portrayal of the disturbed Father alone with his family in the Overlook Hotel. Stephen isn’t often wrong, but com’on fella, Jack was amazing from start to finish.
The film dances from madness, to murder, to loneliness, guilt, anger and desolation. If you’ve ever seen it, you’ll know not to stay in Room 237 anywhere and you’ll probably avoid an outdoor maze like the plague.
There are so many famous scenes that we could have chosen for this design, but young Danny on his dodgy bike, bombing round the Hotel as his dad goes nuts is the favorite. That pattern on the carpet and the evocative reds and oranges of the shapes in the corridors. Brilliant.
We also chose to layer in a geometric version of the pouring blood from the walls. One day soon we’ll be creating a full Kubrick Collection as there are so many many opportunities for symbolism and art. Love it.
