Its why he made The one for TV with Stephen Weber and Rebecca De Mornay

The Shining (TV Mini Series 1997) - IMDb

I like the motion picture better with Jack and Shelley myself.
Yes, Jack. I've spent a lot of time studying 'The Shining'.

King wrote the novel. Kubrick read the book and used it as an outline. But I don't think Kubrick read King's screen-play b/c he wanted to go his own direction.

Saw that the reviews of King's later movie were pretty bad. Bad enough that it doesn't even measure up to Kubrick's 'The Shining.'

I think Kubrick's film is open to much interpretation. I'll leave it at that.
