** Jack is certainly counts too. He makes the offhanded comment about the white man's burden and repeats Grady's phrase about a "nigger cook."

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Unlike the novel, Wendy is not a stunning blonde who for some reason is devoted to her average-looking, alcoholic, abusive husband (who has shown some promise as a writer but has only had a single story published). Instead, as played by Shelley Duvall she is a sweet, mousy woman who is cowering and ingratiating around Jack to the point of being irritating...that is, the type of wife someone like him would probably end up with. She also acts as most people would when confronted with an axe-wielding maniac--she blubber and whimpers rather than showing heroic dignity. [[spoiler: She does prove to have enough inner strength and resourcefulness to save Danny and herself.]] Kubrick's refusal to play to genre stereotypes has led to fans (and Stephen King himself) dumping on Shelly Duvall's performance for years.

** When Hallorann walks down the empty lobby hallway, [[NothingIsScarier everything is silent]]...until a yelling Jack suddenly emerges from behind one of the pillars and plunges his axe into Hallorann's chest.

** The scenes of Danny riding his Big Wheel through the hotel, which have no sound other than the wheels.
** The scene with Hallorann navigating the empty lobby, since we know Jack is coming for him but the place is empty and silent. Eventually, Jack emerges from one of the pillars and hacks Hallorann to death with an axe.

* AxCrazy: '''NO KIDDING.'''Jack is perhaps the iconic example of this trope in film toward the end, when he tries to murder his wife and son with an axe.
