    Now, this actually does have potential. I bet they fuck it up, but it could be something good....

    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    I think if they involve Stephen King it could go well. I liked the movie and the book but they are very separate and that was what King was upset about. The fact that the character of Jack was mispotrayed in Kubrick's movie.

    I hope this prequel lets us find out more about that hot woman that Jack ran into in the bathroom.

    I actually liked the miniseries with Steven Weber more. I hated that Jack was basically already crazy from the getgo and his wife was butt ugly. She was supposed to be sort of a pretty cheerleader type.

    Me too. The miniseries is so much truer to the book. I think a prequel about The Overlook is promising, but this is Hollywood. I have no faith that they won't screw it up.

    If anything it'll just be a lot of boo type scares.

    But what backstory do we need to be told? It's the hotel of the damned which certain people who "shine" can tune into including crazy Jack whose son has inherited the same gift.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I'd like to see the previous caretaker off his creepy twins and his wife myself.
