Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
Have you ever wondered which scene in The Shining took the most takes to film? We dove into the classic thriller's crazy stats, and more, in this edition of By The Numbers.
Other than a few establishing shots at Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood Oregon and Glacier National Park Montana (opening scene), the original Shining was filmed almost entirely at Elstree Studios and takes place entirely in the state of Colorado. This film was largely shot on location and spans several states, including New Hampshire, Ohio, and Iowa. This mirrors the themes of the two novels: The Shining largely deals with addiction, isolation and confinement, whereas Doctor Sleep deals with sobriety, pursuit and escape.
Fucking Men! FUCKING MEN!
When Dan and Abra are getting gas towards the end of the movie, the pump style he is using has a lever that must be moved in front of the opening for the spigot of the dispenser for it to activate. There is no lever there as her pumps, yet he is able to pump gas anyway.
The retro "\\'" logo, as seen on The Shining (1980), is shown at the beginning with the WarnerMedia byline.
