The Shining

The Shining ★★★½

I find this to be the superior adaptation of The Shining by Stephen King. The Kubrick version is amazing, it truly is one of the best films ever made, but as an adaptation of the novel, it’s terrible, which is why Stephen King decided to write this version instead. It’s much closer to the tone and plot of the book.

There’s lots of that great 90s miniseries quality to this and I love it, it’s 6 hours of Stephen King goodness that’s perfect for vegging out on the couch with.
