I love Stanley Kubrick's The Shining and I love King's original novel. A film is a film and a novel is a novel. Two different mediums that equals two different interpretations of the same event.

For me, Stephen King's characterizations make the novel. My old man drank a lot, although he didn't yank my arm outta my socket, I understood Jack Torrance and I understood my dad.

This is one of the best haunted house stories. King's The Shining is up there with Fall of the House of Usher.

King's Shining is highly recommended.

Kubrick's The Shining is highly recommended because it is the greatest horror film epic ever produced. Ever.
