New Stephen King Book Mocks Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’ Adaptation

Stephen King—long known for his disdain of Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of The Shining—reportedly criticizes the director in his new novel, The Outsiders, with a character watching the film Paths of Glory and noting it is “at least better than The Shining.” What do you think?

“I’d be pissed, too, if someone took some silly thing I wrote and turned it into a masterpiece.”

“Oh, snap; I wouldn’t want to be the late Stanley Kubrick right now.”
