THE GIRL WHO WOULDN'T DIE HUNTS THE KILLER WHO SHOULDN'T EXIST. The future is not as loud as war, but it is relentless. It has a terrible fury all its own." Harper Curtis is a killer who stepped out of the past. Kirby Mazrachi is the girl who was never meant to have a future. Kirby is the last shining girl, one of the bright young women, burning with potential, whose lives Harper is destined to snuff out after he stumbles on a House in Depression-era Chicago that opens on to other times. At the urging of the House, Harper inserts himself into the lives of the shining girls, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. He's the ultimate hunter, vanishing into another time after each murder, untraceable-until one of his victims survives. Determined to bring her would-be killer to justice, Kirby joins the Chicago Sun-Times to work with the ex-homicide reporter, Dan Velasquez, who covered her case. Soon Kirby finds herself closing in on the impossible truth . . . THE SHINING GIRLS is a masterful twist on the serial killer tale: a violent quantum leap featuring a memorable and appealing heroine in pursuit of a deadly criminal.

The basis of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick and The Shining by Stephen King is the novel The Shining by Stephen King. Both movies, however, are fundamentally different. Whereas Kubrick tries to put emphasis on the character development of Jack Torrance combining this with unique camera work, music, and various motifs in order to display the real horror coming from Jack himself, King tries to show what happens to a person in an isolated and haunted hotel, emphasizes, however, little Danny and his shining. Thus, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining can be considered a masterpiece of modern horror. King’s version therefore seems like a mere and ordinary copy. This essay compares the two movies of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick and Stephen King. Both films are directly taken from the novel The Shining written by Stephen King in 1977. Stanley Kubrick and Diane Johnson took the book as the basis for the screenplay to Kubrick’s The Shining (1980). They basically stripped everything off the book until the bare character Jack Torrance and his transformation were revealed. They then incorporated several motifs, which will be talked about later. Thus, Kubrick was able to create a movie displaying real horror coming from the mind/soul of a human being and not from ghosts or alien-monsters. Stephen King has been known for not liking and harshly criticising Kubrick’s adaptation of his novel, since he “said that The Shining includes an exploration of alcohol dependence and relationships with parents and children in one's life.” Therefore, Stephen King produced his own TV mini-series of The Shining in 1997 – an exact book to movie adaptation directed by Mick Garris. To emphasize the dramatic differences between the two novels this essay will compare the camera work, the music, and the characters and in addition will explain the motifs used by Stanley Kubrick. Consequently, it is shown that Stanley Kubrick’s version can be considered as the masterpiece of modern horror, whereas Stephen King’s film version of his novel seems to be no more than a mere and ordinary stereotype.

Stanley Kubrick hailed The Shining as 'the scariest horror film of all time' before its release in 1980. Though the film opened to poor reviews, it has since become one of the most admired horror films in cinema history. Exerting an enormous influence on popular culture, The Shining has spawned a vast array of interpretations and conspiracy theories. Roger Luckhurst's illuminating study of this seminal film explores its themes, tropes and resonances through a detailed analysis of sequences and performances. Situating The Shining in a series of fresh contexts, this book looks at the complex nature of horror cinema at the end of the 1970s and early 80s. Taking the maze of the haunted hotel as a key motif, Luckhurst offers numerous threads with which to navigate the strange twists and turns of this enigmatic film.

With just thirteen feature films in half a century, Stanley Kubrick established himself as one of the most accomplished directors in motion picture history. Kubrick created a landmark and a benchmark with every film; working in almost every genre imaginable, including film noir, war movie, SF, horror, period drama, historical epic, love story and satire - yet transcended traditional genre boundaries with every shot. Examining every feature film, from the early shorts through to classics such as Paths of Glory, Dr Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and finally, Eyes Wide Shut, The Complete Kubrick provides a unique insight into understanding the work of cinema's most enigmatic, iconoclastic and gifted auteur.
