This The Shining bookend eerily captures Jack Nicholson’s lunatic look in the thrilling “Here’s Johnny!” scene from the book’s movie adaption

There are certainly many striking scenes in the movie. And one particular favorite among fans is the part where Jack hunts down Wendy as she hides inside the bathroom. Jack smashes the bathroom door with an ax and peeks through the opening he has created. Then he utters his iconic line, “Here’s Johnny!” as his frightened wife screams on top of her lungs.
