More quotes from The Shining

Trivia: The hotel used for The Overlook in this film is the very hotel that Stephen King stayed in (in Estes Park, Colorado) that spooked him and inspired the novel 'The Shining'. The DVD commentary informs us that King reasoned that there was no better building to portray The Overlook than the one it was originally based upon.
