Jack Nicholson is crazy creep

There is no way to film what happens in the book so the story is changed in places to achieve the same degree of !!!! But, it doesn't work.
A typical Stephen King book makes you care for the characters before horrible things happen.
A movie doesn't have enough time to accomplish that. There isn't the same richness, the same buy-in, the same experience.
GET THE BOOK.

Although Stephen King was not thrilled by Stanely Kubricks interpertation, this is definitely one of his best masterpieces. This movie leaves a lot to the imagination. Is Jack's character really crazy? Is the hotel really haunted? Anyone would go crazy with that kind of isolation from the real world. It is a situation that people can relate to, but the movie also goes beyond that and shows the history of the hotel. Why it may be haunted. It is a classic horror movie that will you shocked and speechless.. It shows us just how talented Jack is and this film opened many doors for Stephen King whether he likes to admit it or not.
