Publically denounced by King, who likened Kubrick’s take on his bestseller to a ‘big, beautiful Cadillac with no engine inside,’ this tale of a writer’s breakdown in the vast expanse of a haunted hotel is nonetheless widely regarded as a genre masterpiece. Taking many liberties with the source novel – perhaps explaining the author’s displeasure – the result is most certainly Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, and not King’s.
