  1. I see no reason to not like The Shining. It’s a pure cinema masterpiece of suspense and horror. I **personally** like the movie way better than the book, and I typically love the Stephen King book better than the movie.

  2. Stephen King novels aren’t the only stories that get changed around when made into movies. It happen for Anne Rice’s Interview with A Vampire as well. Also for a scene in Omen 3 The Final Conflict. “The disciples of the watch” scene.
