A Video Pays Tribute To The Hotel Lobby Twins From ‘The Shining’
Twins from the Bangor area re-created the scary "Come play with us, Danny" from Stephen King's classic.
A guy named Mark Linn uploaded a video to YouTube, as an homage to 'The Shining.'
"We were at a haunted location somewhere in the New England area and these were twins from my special guest and psychic medium Lorretta Davis of Bangor, Maine."
Other than that description, the location of where they were in New England, is unclear, but the video is pretty cool.
In case you forgot, in the classic 1980 film, we follow the point of view of Danny Torrance, the only son of Jack Nicholson, and his wife Wendy, who take on caretaker duties at the Overlook Hotel. Danny is exploring the hotel’s maze-like corridors on his little red bike, when he encounters young twin girls who invite him to “come play”, in a super creepy, evil way.
Here is that clip from the film, but don't worry, we found a version without all the really scary stuff in the movie.
Interestingly enough, about a year ago on The Drew Barrymore Show, Stephen King confessed that he wasn't a big fan of that particular adaptation of his work. He commented, "the book was warm, and the movie was cold."
I was surprised by his dislike of this because I think it is a brilliant piece of filmmaking, especially that scene, where the director, Stanley Kubrick, uses a steady-cam shot of Danny barreling down that hallway of the hotel.
