This The Shining Bookend Recreates The Infamous Here's Johnny Scene

If you're a lover of Stephen King's novels, you'll enjoy this latest feature - perhaps even more so if you're a fan of Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall in the film adaptation of "The Shining." The handmade Jack Torrance The Shining bookend is the perfect device to hold your books up while also reminding you of that horrific sequence in the movie adaption of "The Shining".

Keep all of your Stephen King novels, self-help books on alcoholism and writer's block, or even horror flicks on the shelf company when you keep them upright with Komenza Sculpture's cool new and somewhat horrifying The Shining Bookend Sculpture. This powerful bust of Jack Nicholson's character Jack Torrance from the film The Shining, not the book, is a highly realistic sculptural bookend that will have visitors giving double-takes before fleeing to your backyard's large hedge maze. Each bookend bust is handcrafted and does not include an ax, luckily.

Jack Nicholson, who plays Stephen King's Jack Torrance, pursues after a terrified Shelley Duvall, who plays King's character Wendy Torrance, in this "The Shining" bookend. The iconic sequence in "The Shining" where Jack breaks down a toilet door, pops his face in, and shouts "Heeeere's Johnny" to a terrified Wendy - probably one of the scariest moments in cinema history – serves as the bookend.

Is 'The Shining' A True Story?

Although The Shining was a fictional story, the location was based on genuine hauntings at Colorado's Stanley Hotel. It was about Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), a recovering alcoholic who got a job as a caretaker at a historic hotel during the off-season.

Made of clay, ceramic gypsum, and resin, this The Shining bookend sculpture offers lifelike sculpting of Jack's frightening visage. A modest, unobtrusive pedestal holds up the Jack Torrance head, keeping the bookend firm even when holding up surrounding books.

There are flat places to rest books on either side of the face from "The Shining," which will mimic the effect of the door from the movie, allowing Jack's face to protrude out creepily.
