  • Jack was an assassin that Hitler was planning to hire to kill Justin Bieber during Operation: Destroy Bieberdom . However, when Jack showed up for his interview, he proceeded to chop down Dolfy's door using an ax, despite being clearly told that the door was unlocked. Hitler was very annoyed by this, and therefore declined to hire Jack. His character is parodied in Hitler's Shining, where Hitler went through a very similar experience to Jack Torrence.
  • Jonathan "Johnny" Daniel "Jack" Torrance was the main protagonist turned main antagonist in the 1980 horror-thriller film The Shining, adapted from the novel of the same name written by Stephen King. Jack was a writer and a redeemed alcoholic who lived with his wife Wendy and his son Danny, who wielded a special psychic power known as "the Shining". Jack eventually became possessed by a demon (who, in general, had control over all of the Overlook Hotel that Jack was put in charge of) and attempted to try to kill his own family under that demon's influence.
  • He is portrayed more grimly in the 1980 film. In the novel Jack is a tragic hero whose shortcomings lead to his defeat, while the film implies that he is insane from the start. It also omits his traumatic childhood. The film's first major deviation from the source material occurs when Jack attacks Hallorann. Instead of merely injuring him with the mallet, Jack brutally kills Hallorann with an axe wound to the heart.

  • John "Jack" Daniel Torrance es un alcohólico recuperado y escritor al principio de su carrera que perdió su trabajo en la enseñanza por golpear a un estudiante por desinflar las llantas de su coche y que en una ocasión golpeó a su hijo pequeño, lo que le supuso grandes amenazas de la madre de divorciarse y, así mismo, no poco remordimiento. Lleva a su familia a un Hotel, pero es conducido por el hotel, por el bloqueo del escritor y por los espíritus a beber. Jack se enoja y quiere matar a Wendy, Danny y Dick Hallorann con un mazo de roque. Representa en la realidad al propio escritor Stephen King, quien en esos momentos se encontraba casado y con hijos y sentía la necesidad de recurrir al alcohol y a las drogas para poder inspirarse. El alcohol, dentro del hotel, y la nieve, fuera, lo aíslan. El alcohol y la nieve (un símbolo de la cocaína) son claramente símbolos en la obra.

  • He is portrayed more grimly in the 1980 film. In the novel Jack is a tragic hero whose shortcomings lead to his defeat, while the film implies that he is insane from the start. It also omits his traumatic childhood. The film's first major deviation from the source material occurs when Jack attacks Hallorann. Instead of merely injuring him with the mallet, Jack brutally kills Hallorann with an axe wound to the heart. In the film, Jack hears Danny scream, and chases his son to a hedge maze outside the hotel (in the novel topiary animals come to life and threaten Danny). Danny erases his footprints, so his father won't be able to follow him. While Wendy and Danny escape the hotel in Halloran's Snowcat, Jack gets lost in the maze, rests from chasing Danny, and freezes to death. While Jack redeems himself in the book, in the 1980 film, he succumbs to his demons and is ultimately damned. The film ends featuring old black and white photgraph saying and showing' Overlook Hotel, July 4th Ball, 1921. A young Jack stands smiling in the bottom center.
