Two books into this whole Stephen King Retrospective (though it is in fact the third book) and we might have hit the plateau. The Shining has an interesting set of distinctions in the author's bibliography. It remains one of the author's most popular books among readers. Yet, the original film adaptation has sparked more debate than anything that has ever been adapted. Is it a question of Stanley Kubrick taking the novel's contents and changing them in the name of the author, whom Kubrick had called 'a brat'? Or, is it really one of the scariest movies ever made, and King's shots at it over the unwarranted? Listen in as myself, Matt, and Adam rejoin to answer some of this debate. We've been doing this podcast for a number of years at this point. Yet, I have never been part of a retrospective that is as unpredictable as this one. After Adam shares the story of how he saw this for the first time (hint, it involved me), we get into the crazy making of Kubrick's one entry in the horror genre, The Shining. Is the casting as Nicholson as detrimental as King has made it out to be? Is this really a movie designed 'to hurt people? Or, is it the horror masterpiece that AMC special after AMC special have pointed out countlessly? Download below to find out! Come back next week as we look at Stephen King's answer to this what some call cinematic masterpiece, 1997's The Shining TV miniseries.
