Jack and Danny Torrance have the kind of father/son relationship best described as “nightmarish,” especially after Jack is convinced by a hotel to murder his son. But what exactly is going on in the Overlook that has Jack so enraptured but fails to grab Danny? And how does the Real play into all of the Stephen King works we’ve been looking at? All these answers, and more, on this episode of the Cine-Analyst!

 

 

Tune in next time when I breakdown fictional characters and talk about what’s going on inside that brain of theirs. What makes us so scared of what goes bump in the night? Find out on this season of The Cine-Analyst!
