100 thoughts on “The Shining Batting Cage

  1. It's a funny video and all that, but there's one glaring issue. Shelly Duvall wasn't exactly a model, so when you get this knock-out gorgeous babe to play her, it not only is inconsistent with the source material, but it will also distract the straight men in the audience from the comedy itself.

  2. I love the fact that Gus went to the trouble of making a screen accurate costume, renting a batting cage, and convincing someone to film for him, all for a 16 second, one-note gag.

  3. Next, you go to a library with a huge pile of "All work and no play make Jack a dull boy" sheets and you remake that scene when Jack is having nightmares and wait until you get thrown out.

  4. i opened an other tab while leaving this video play in the background and had an awkward moment with my brother when he walked in. it realy sounded like porn noises! thanks gus

  5. Gus, The Shining is a 1980 horror film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick and co-written with novelist Diane Johnson. The film is based on Stephen King's 1977 novel The Shining.
    The Shining is about Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), an aspiring writer and recovering alcoholic, who accepts a position as the off-season caretaker of the isolated historic Overlook Hotel in the Colorado Rockies. Wintering over with Jack are his wife Wendy Torrance (Shelley Duvall) and young son Danny Torrance (Danny Lloyd). Danny possesses "the shining", psychic abilities that include him seeing the hotel's horrific past. The hotel's cook, Dick Hallorann (Scatman Crothers), also has this and is able to telepathically communicate with Danny. The hotel had a previous winter caretaker who went crazy and killed his family and himself. After a winter storm leaves the Torrances snowbound, Jack's sanity deteriorates due to the influence of the supernatural forces that inhabit the hotel, placing his wife and son in danger.
    Production took place almost exclusively at EMI Elstree Studios with sets strongly based on real locations. Kubrick often worked with a small crew which allowed him to do many takes, sometimes to the exhaustion of the actors and staff. The new Steadicam was used in several scenes giving it an innovative and immersive look and feel. Because of inconsistencies, ambiguities, symbolism, and differences from the book, there has been much speculation into the meanings and actions in the movie.
    There were several versions for theatrical releases, each being shorter than the prior, with about 27 minutes cut. Although contemporary responses from critics were mixed, assessment became more favorable in following decades, and it is now widely regarded as one of the greatest horror films ever made. American director Martin Scorsese ranked it one of the 11 scariest horror movies of all time. Critics, scholars, and crew members (such as Kubrick's producer Jan Harlan) have discussed the film's enormous influence on popular culture.
