The Overlook will haunt her forever.
Shelley Duvall–best known to horror fans as Wendy Torrance in Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining–returns to the big screen for the first time in two decades with The Forest Hills, according to a report on Deadline. Check out the first-look image from the film on this page.
The Forest Hills–from writer/director Scott Goldberg–follows a mentally disturbed man, Rico (Chiko Mendez), who is tormented by nightmarish visions after enduring head trauma while camping in the Catskills. Duvall plays Rico’s mother, and acts as his inner voice.
The film–produced by Scott Hansen and Goldberg–also stars Edward Furlong and Dee Wallace. There is no word yet on a release window for the pic.
Goldberg called The Shining “one of my favorite horror movies of all time. Shelley contributed to that film being an absolute masterpiece by giving her all and performing in a way that really showcased the fear and horror of a mother in isolation.”
