Creepy or Scary?

Stephen King's The Shining

Some Stephen King novels are scary: you jump, you scream, you startle. Is The Shining creepy or scary? And how much of this distinction is transformed in the translation of the text from novel to film?  Join us for an exploration of The Shining, led by Marisa Parham, Associate Professor of English at Amherst College, before its screening at the Amherst Cinema on April 23. 

Saturday, April 20 at 2:30 pm - Woodbury Room

This program is the third in a “Books into Films Series” by the Jones Library and the Amherst Cinema.
