I've read the book. Curious to see how this plays out as a film. Everyone should understand that this is NOT a sequel to the Kubrick film. It is an adaptation of the sequel to the King novel (which I have also read). This director is capable. I've seen Oculus and Absentia. Both pretty good. We'll see.
Yep. Came out in 2013. About an adult alcoholic Dan Torrance who still "shines" who learns he has a half-sister named Abra who also has powers. It seems ol' Jack was cheating on Wendy back in the day. They team up to take on a vampiric group called the True Knot who abduct children who "shine" and feed on their power (called "steam" in the novel). The finale takes place at the site of the former Overlook Hotel, where some of its ghosts still linger. Pretty good book. Not one of King's best but worth a look.

I read books. I have read 14 of Stephen Kings books but after finishing the dark tower I feel he really let me down as a reader that had invested alot of time reading the story, and had become attached to the life of the characters, Roland and his friends struggle through so much to reach and the dark tower and In the end Stephen King writes the worst ending for Roland ever! After all he's been hroug and after all I've been through reading that story that is what Stephen King writes! Total let down man I was truly unhappy. So I don't know if I'll read more of his books.
