The Shining is one of the most famous novels in the literature of “the king of horror stories”. This work has been adapted into a movie directed by Stanley Kubrick. The book gives us an obsessive view of a man engulfed in madness. Interestingly, this character was somewhat similar to the author himself at the time, when Stephen King was struggling with heavy alcoholism.

And the only person who feels the strange and terrible forces besieging this place is Jack Torrance’s five-year-old son Daniel Torrance with special psychic abilities.
