The Shining Jack Torrance Head Bookend: Here’s Johnny!

Looking for the perfect bookend to display alongside your Stephen King horror novel collection? Well, look no further than this Jack Torrance ‘Here’s Johnny!’ bookend handcrafted by Etsy seller KomenzaSculpture. I’ll be honest though, I wouldn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night and see ol’ Jack here staring back at me with that unhinged look of his.

Available for $246, the psychological horror heads are made from clay, ceramic gypsum, and resin. They measure approximately 12″ x 8″ x 8″, making them slightly larger than a real human head. Except for mine. I have a monster of a noggin. I say that’s because it’s filled with a lot of brains, but my wife argues it’s actually rocks and cobwebs.

I’ve never read The Shining, but I have watched the movie multiple times, and every time I do I have nightmares for a few nights. Between the Grady twins, the corpse woman in room 237, and Jack’s descent into madness, I sleep with the lights on and hold it till morning no matter how badly I have to go to the bathroom.
