Count Gore De Vol presents THE SHINING
Join us for some creepy good fun when local TV legend Count Gore de Vol (Dick Dyszel) returns to present another horror favorite in the spirit of the original CREATURE FEATURE program on Washington, DC's Channel 20.
2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the Count and CREATURE FEATURE's television debut on February 3, 1973. This celebration will include vintage clips from the Count's vault and several special guests, all topped off with a screening of 1980's THE SHINING, one of the Count's favorite horror films.
"Heeeere's Johnny!" Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) suffers from one helluva case of writer's block in Stanley Kubrick's acclaimed adaptation of the Stephen King novel. The frustrated writer takes a job as the winter caretaker of the isolated Overlook Hotel, with long-suffering wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and introverted young son Danny (Danny Lloyd) in tow. The family tries to make the best of things at the lonely resort, while Jack's sanity is pushed to the breaking point as cabin fever and the denizens of the demonic hotel take control. DIR/SCR/PROD Stanley Kubrick; SCR Diane Johnson, from the novel by Stephen King. U.S./UK, 1980, color, 146 min. RATED R
