The Shining
Final round of the Dem Bones Haunted Halloween Contest. Category: Monster Movie Diorama. Stanley Kubrick´s „The Shining“ is probably my most favourite horror movie and I´ve seen a lot. For those of you who haven´t seen this masterpiece, go rent and watch it – if you´re old enough. For those of you who only know the TV remake from 1997 by Stephen King himself, forget it and watch the Kubrick version. I can also recommend the novel.
About this creation

Let me start our little tour through the Overlook Hotel with the scene that scared me most as a young teen. The bathroom in room 237. For better comparison I added some links to movie stills. I´m too lily-livered to upload them myself (for copyright reasons).


I´ve spent quite some time to puzzle together the right carpet from the claustrophobic long corridors. Now I´ve got enough cheese cakes for the rest of my life (at least in orange and dark bluish grey).


Well, since we now had our first look at Danny, here´s what his trike looks like. But why did he stop? Who´s in front of him?


Argh, it´s the twins ! I know they weren´t skeletons in the movie, but I thought those faces fit them well. I was really scared of them, I mean, as a kid, hahahhhch ...


No Shining MOC would be complete without the probably most famous scene (the one from the cover of course).
Wendy hides in the bathroom with a knife while
Jack is busy on the other side of the door.
I´ve had some colour problems in this shot. Wendy is not wearing the right dress and the walls and floor in Jack´s room are completely wrong, but I was running out of time and bricks. Sorry.


Here´s Jacky !


Finally we end our little tour outside the Overlook Hotel with a view of the facade . Left you can see the top of the snow hill Danny uses to escape.

Okay, this is it. The MOC is bigger than 16 x 16 (check) and it´s based on a monster movie, cause Jack Nicholson is such a scary monster that Freddy Kruger has nightmares about him.
I wanted to do two more scenes, the elevators and the maze but again, I was running out of time. Maybe next Halloween.
Here´re some more views of the whole thing:








And some aditional shots: Jack and Wendy Torrance ...


... the woman in the bath, the Grady twins and Danny Torrance ...


... some furniture from the corridor ...


... and the crome bricks, since mirrors are very important in the movie.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

This was a big inspiration for me modifying my haunted house. I've used similar scenes like the bathing woman and the creepy twins but added my own twist to it. I think your Movie MOC is one of the best I ever seen... Thanks for sharing, inspiring, and giving me the creeps using a small green plastic female minifig coming after me...

My scariest moment was when you first saw the twins. I was 12!

How have I not noticed this before. I'm getting the willies just looking at it. From an accuracy standpoint, it's perfect. And I am in total agreement, that bathroom scene is the scariest part of the movie. To this day, if I put myself through watching it, I see that scene through a gap in my fingers with my mouth open in a silent scream. From an artistic standpoint, it's fabulous. The carpet is perfect, (and stunningly accurate). The facade is very well done, and those twins even as minifigs sent a cold chill down my spine. Absolutely wonderful work.

I love the movie, and would never have imagined anybody could come so close to so many scenes in LEGO. The carpet pulls my eyes out! I love it! The boards on the outside wall: Perfect. Your decision to give the twins the skull heads, Yes! This whole thing is just creepy! So much action in one MOC. I am looking and looking. It's better than TV. Attack!

Wow, you're no stranger to great movie interpretations yourself! You really nailed each detail of this slice of the overlook. the color blocking and snot-work is impeccable. "No sir, YOU are the caretaker. You've always been the caretaker. I ought to know: I've always been here." Nice work!

I really enjoy what you've done here. Each scene is quite well presented. The build is very clean and the techniques are executed expertly. I am slightly turned off by the inclusion of multiple scenes, but not enough to deduct. 15 points.

You really came out of nowhere and smashed this competition to bits! The tile flooring is astounding! I could sit here all day and tell you how wonderful this MOC is, but it wouldn't change the score. Which happens to be a perfect 15! Good luck with the other judges!

Quoting jamie sweeney Good luck, not that you need it.
Thank you, Jamie, but for 2 reasons I think, I need it: First, I really like all the entries and all of them are unique. Second, I´m an AFOL and as such, it´s probably easier for me to buy more bricks when I need them. But that doesn´t make me a better builder.

'All work and no play makes Jack a very dull boy!' It does not, however, make him any less of a frightening subject for you masterfully produced brickery. The bathroom is so spot on! Bravo, good sir, and Happy Halloween!~H

Quoting Blake Baer Is that Dark Tan on the back?
Precisely. It looks brighter in the most pics thanks to the flashlights. I wanted to archive an old log hut look, therefore I didn´t put the tiles plain on the wall.

Once again thank you all for your kind comments.
Quoting Mister Bones Oh my....this is sweet! The face for Jack is spot on and the detail work you put into this is simply amazing.
The face is from power miners. And his hair, well, now you know why I was asking for custom parts.
Quoting Leda Kat =^..^= This is by far the most accurate and EXTREMELY skilfully built rendition of The Shining I have ever seen!
This means a lot to me, coming from you, Madame Kat.

This is also one of my favourite movies of all time! You have really captured the uneasy, quiet and haunting scenes of Kubric's masterpiece both with your builds and in keeping the presentation mostly perfectly symmetrical long shots. This is by far the most accurate and EXTREMELY skilfully built rendition of The Shining I have ever seen! Me thinks you have a complete collection of those minifigs headed your way... Congrats!

A very nice remake here (though I havent seen the original, or the remake) but a great MOC here nonetheless. The furniture is superb and the all around color scheme is brilliant. >Eric
