“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Ever wonder what became of the little boy after his traumatic family experience in The Shining? The master of horror, Stephen King, had his novel The Shining adapted to film in 1980. Starring Jack Nicholson, the film is a cult favourite and one of the best horror films made. The story was revisited in 2018 when King’s sequel novel, Doctor Sleep, was also adapted to film. Catch these films back-to-back and immerse yourself in the creepy world of King.
