Wendy Torrance in “The Shining” has been noted as one of the most misogynistic portrayals of a female character ever in film, fueled by sexist reactions to her character from critics and audiences, like this review from Jason Serafino in a 2012 article for Complex, eye rollingly titled “ The 25 Most Annoying Movie Characters” - “Shelley Duvall is just so whiny and dense as increasingly unstable Jack Torrance's wife that it makes it nearly impossible not to root for him to turn her into a lampshade for the hotel lobby. Her high-pitched speaking voice and shrieks just add fuel to our rage.” • • A women who has been through the emotional and physical trauma of an abusive relationship affecting both her and her young child, the isolation and entrapment of her family in an increasingly upsetting and suffocating environment, and then the literal gift for her life while her husband tries to kill her is reduced to her being “annoying.” • • Stephen King himself touts the treatment of Wendy as problematic: “Shelley Duvall as Wendy is really one of the most misogynistic characters ever put on film, she's basically just there to scream and be stupid and that's not the woman that I wrote about...” Idyllopus Press has a detailed and thought provoking piece on this very misunderstood and often mocked character in he brilliant “THE REAL HORROR OF THE SHINING - THE MISOGYNY OF THE AUDIENCE FOR WENDY TORRANCE” and you can read it in the link in our bio.
one of my favorite characters in film rm voidharley / floppy i know #wendytorrance
The first episode of my “Women of Horror” series focusing on the amazing work of my favorite actress Kathy Bates will be posted next week. I have already started planning my second segment for the series focusing on Shelly Duvall and her under appreciated performance as Wendy Torrance in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece “The Shining”. This woman never gets credit for the incredible work she did on the film and I am planning to turn the tide. #shellyduvall #wendytorrance #stanleykubrickstheshining #theshining
My room looks like a Funko tornado hit it! In the process of making an IT/Stephen King display! It’s coming along. Anyone have suggestions in preserving autographs like anti-UV film or cases? For now I’ll keep the autographs facing the wall. #FunkoPop #FunkoCollector #FunkoAddict #StephenKingsIT #Horror #TheLosersClub #GeorgieDenbrough #BillDenbrough #BeverlyMarsh #StanUris #BenHanscom #EddieKaspbrak #MikeHanlon #RichieTozier #PennywisetheDancingClown #YoullFloatToo #FunkoAutograph #GeekLife #HorrorFanatic #TheShining #JackTorrance #WendyTorrance #DannyTorrance #TheGradyTwins #FunkoChase

Just finished re-reading this. It’s interesting how your experience of a book can change. Did it still scare me? Yes. But while the first time around it was the more genuinely pure-horror stuff that really scared me (the bathroom in 217!), what really chilled me to the bone and creeped me out this time around was Jack’s descent into....into what he becomes. ‘The Shining’ is, in some ways, a possession story. Add to that the fact that King’s Jack is much more complex than the Jack in the Kubrick film, and what happens to him is all the more frightening. Also, I was much more intrigued by Danny’s story this time around, perhaps because this time around, I was reading with the premise of ‘Doctor Sleep’ in the back of my mind. I liked book-Wendy more this time around too as I felt more able to distinguish between book-Wendy (flawed but strong and complex) and film-Wendy (who would drive anyone to axe-wielding insanity). Looking forward to getting ‘Doctor Sleep’ from Audible on my next download date. I still like the Kubrick film, but film and book are really very different. I can see why King himself is not a fan of the film. . #theshining #stephenking #dannytorrance #jacktorrance #wendytorrance #theoverlookhotel

For some reason, I lost about 10-15 followers over the last couple days. Is it because I posted about longboarding? Is it because I’m not spamming enough? Do I pander? Hell no.
