Ever since The Shinning came out in the 1980s, people always wanted to know what would happen to Danny when he saw twins’ girls that scared him and gave him nightmares. When he wakes up, his pillows were gone.
This movie and the novel will either give you nightmares, nor you might hear some creaking noise in the middle of the night. I hope you don’t have any monsters underneath your bed or your closet. If I was you, sleep in a hotel – not the Stanley Hotel or the Bates Motel – the Holiday Inn or Motel 6, they will leave the light on for you, I guess.
The first movie The Shinning did gave me nightmares, Stephen King knows how to write good screenplays and novels. He had four movies that came out this year, and they were: Pet Cemetery, It Chapter 2 (continuation and final), In Tall Grass (Netflix), and Doctor Sleep (November 2019). Many more of Stephen King’s novels and stories will come soon to a theater near you.
The story is Danny Torrance is still traumatized by the events that happened in 1980 by staying at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. Having nightmares that long can cause mental behavior throughout a long time.
Eventually, he meets Abra, a teen who shares who have an extrasensory power that she can “Shine,” the shine power is related to telepathy and clairvoyance. She can communicate with others by using the mind and see things that happened in the past or will happen in the future.
Danny and Abra much battle the demons called the True Knot, whose members try to feed off The Shine of innocents to become immortal.
In other words, another classic tale of Stephen King horror and the supernatural world, which is technically true in a certain way. But great storytelling.
Maybe teenagers are smarter than us, for me, I was stumped. We tell our children to be more responsible and work hard, which is good. Working hard and being responsible is the key to be successful in high school.
I was going to a dinner party in Virginia and the family invited my dad and me to come along with them, which was great. Most of the time I would stay home, they wanted me to come too. Ever since my mom passed away a few months ago, it would be creepy to stay alone in the house. The floors would creek, which was me stepping on the floor while walking. The cabinet’s door would open by themselves, which was me again opening the cabinet to get a glass. Then the refrigerator door would open, which was not me. It really opened. I need to go out. I was not scared.
My dad and I sat near the windows of the vehicle while the son’s father was driving us to Virginia. The son sat in the middle of the seat. I wanted peanuts and drink, but they did not have it. Anyway, the son is very talented; he’s in the High School Band and the drama. So, he started to play games in the car, which is good for a long drive and short trip to Chesapeake Virginia. I had to guess which song he was singing. He was doing it like Hollywood Game Night version of How do you doo? I have to guess the song while he sang the song. The category was Disney Musicals. I got every musical right he sang – not! That’s embarrassing. I got one right. “The Little Mermaid”, maybe two and “Let it go” from Frozen, that was humiliating and fun. Let’s do it again and this time give me a warning.
Either I need to get out more or watch Disney Musicals.
