Here is a working clip from the 28-weeks-later opening scene.

Funny thing about The Shining Stephen King did not like the movie at all, He thought Kubrick missed the crucial points that he conveyed in the book. Stephen King has stated that Kubrick didn't do justice to what King felt were the most important aspects of the book : The main character's struggle with alcoholism, the dissolution of the American family (or at least this one), and the malevolence of the hotel itself (rather than the people/ghosts in it.)

Some of this may be personal for King. Like the main character, King was a writer with a serious alcohol and cocaine problem who confessed suppressing "brutal urges" toward his daughter. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvsho... The book is about a good man turned bad by alcoholism; an alcoholism exploited by an unseen evil force.

The movie is about a jerk who just gets worse.

I dont like Kubricks The Shining either. But the novel by Stephen King is one of the scariest novels I have ever read.

Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Oh yeah I adore the novel, it's an absolute classic. I don't think King 'got' what Kubrick did with the framework, he coulda made a basic visual counterpart in his sleep but he used it as a foundation and vehicle for his own themes and agendas and crazy interpretations. A lot of it is about the genocide of the american indians and the juxtaposition of written medium vs electronic communication, it's severely fascinating and downright odd. You get the impression his Torrance wasn't sane to begin with and the ending is mind boggling, it's interesting he is in the Baphomet pose in the last photo. The number puzzles and subconscious maze are also quite a treat!

It certainly ain't a horror film as audiences know it, there is barely any blood, two deaths and no cheap thrills, the elevator holds all the gore really and that is symbolic and not a mere gimmick. True art!

See Now I thought 28 days later was the best out of the 2, When I saw it I was very entertained. BLOOD and GORE is phenomenal in that movie

Also jumping back to The Shining movie Kubrick called Stephen King and he said that The Shining was a pretty optimistic movie because If there were all these ghosts that meant that there was life after death. Stephen King then said well what about hell, and Kubrick replied I dont believe in Hell. Then Stephen King said well I do. So they disagreed about that also

Yeah I remember reading that, he woke King up at like 3 in the morning with random questions cause of the time differences haha. The novel has a much more upbeat ending than what we're left with in the movie. Though there was a scene in a hospital which (I think, at least I haven't been able to track it down) never made it into the final cut, I believe Kubrick removed it.

God help me, I RAN from my mom at a flea market once. Some peeps were tossing a doll of HIM around.
I even told my cousins to tear his visage from a newspaper once. I was that scared. I was 13 when I told them to do that.
At 17, the first part was on Netflix.
Brother: Hey, Child's Play! Wanna watch?
Me: -automatically turns and mods a PC game in another room.-
