The Shining is one of Stephen King’s most popular novels. It also happens to be one of Stanley Kubrick’s most famous films, considered by many to be one the greatest horrors films ever made! The only thing is, the two entities–novel and film–are so different, that many have taken to referring to Kubrick’s film as having been “based on” Stephen King’s novel, not an actual adaptation. And to make things even stranger? Stephen King famously hates the film! He hated it so much, in fact, that 17 years after the film came out, Stephen King took his own adaptation of the novel to ABC, where it aired as a mini-series over three nights. How’d it do? Did people love it?? Find out in this episode of House of Horrors!
