Stephen King hated Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of The Shining. But the movie made as big (a bigger?) cultural mark as the novel from which it diverged. Which must chap King’s hide double, since the filmmakers who’ve adapted his sequel, Dr Sleep, split the difference and made a movie that makes sense for both universes. Kind of a weird thing to do, but what kind of chump passes up the opportunity to riff on some of Kubrick’s indelible images? Not horror veteran Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Gerald’s Game), we’ll tell you.
