Room 237 || Movie REVIEW

What does Stephen King, Stanley Kubrick, genocide, and the Apollo moon landing all have in common? The Shining apparently.

Everyone knows Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of The Shining even if they haven’t read Stephen King’s novel.

I don’t even need to talk about my feelings on Stephen King because we all know I love him more than any other author.

So tonight on a whim, I decided to watch the fan film Room 237 about some theories of what Kubrick’s vision had been when making The Shining.

So without further ado, let’s talk about what I thought about this film.

So let’s see the similarities and differences between the 1990 book and the 2017 movie.
