When it comes down to films that leave more questions than they answer, in the top ten is going to be Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Deviating from the Stephen King source novel, it’s been the subject of hundreds of conspiracy theories, deep analyses and even a brilliant documentary called Room 237. While King had nothing good to say about the film, and still doesn’t, Kubrick religiously refused to divulge the secrets of the movie, or give any explanations for any of it. That means we need to come up with our own.
With Doctor Sleep, the sequel to the film and the novel hitting theatres, it’s a good time to brush up on some of the crazy theories that the internet has to offer.
Because Tony says so.
