For True Fiction Episode 5, we’re taking a look at one of the most beloved horror/thriller movies of all time: The Shining. The Stanley Kubrick classic based on a Stephen King book follows one man’s descent into madness, but there’s more to the fall than initially meets the eye.
Main character Jack Torrance’s mental break is the result of numerous factors, one of which is isolation. In this episode, we delve deep into the impact of isolation on people and explore how well The Shining portrays the madness that can result from it.
You can check out True Fiction on the GameSpot Universe YouTube channel, where new episodes will be released every Sunday. You’ll also find a little more about the process of making the episode from host and writer Kurt Indovina.
