What could possibly go wrong?

I dunno, a workman getting a splinter? Somehow I doubt fictional spooks and curses will arise.

The fact that you had to correct this for the subby is disturbing and I think that someone should be fired for it.

Probably nothing.  But if something does, I'm sure the USA Today will have an army of reporters on the scene.

Dog Psychics are total BS.  However, I digging up old graves is disturbing and why the fark couldn't they just put the wedding pavilion in another location?

The part I remeber the most about Pet Sematary was the tanker truck wreck - so realistic and sad.  And Lurch.

Initially it seemed like it would be a turn off to potential couples, but I suppose if you're getting married at the hotel that inspired the Shining, it would probably be a selling point for the ceremony to take place on top of the disturbed graves of a pet semetary.

Plus, imagine the fun you'll have in the honeymoon suite later....

At least you know where to put the blame if your wife turns into a witch.

I suspect they'll find a dog buried there named Cujo that is dressed like a clown and its rotting corpse is covered with a deadly bacteria that will wipe out most of humanity. That's my first guess.

FTFA: "The Stanley plans to hire people from a local cemetery to appropriately move the graves."

Hiring dead people to move dead animals seems only marginally more appropriate than hiring live people to do it, but it could set a bad precedent for pay if these corpses work in exchange for floral arrangements.

I don't know-- maybe, remember to move the headstones?

Maybe only move the headstones?

As long as they don't just move the headstones, everything should be fine, right Carol Anne?

Nothing will go wrong.  FFS, pet/animal burial grounds are by far the least creepy kind of burial ground.  In case  subby forgot:

Native American burial ground <-----> normal cemetery <------> pet/animal burial ground

What I don't get is why they named the hotel The Stanley after the movie's director. If anything they should call it The Stephen.

It will probably be nothing, unless out of desperation they have a skeleton crew working the night shift from just after sunset to four past midnight when it's full dark, no stars.  Even if they have insomnia, it sounds like pure misery.  However, if they band together under the dome of an organized union, the stand they make will either result in their getting the needful things they deserve, or the regulators will bust them up and they'll wind up in a cell.

The psychic on that article is good. Constantly and consistently pressing the interviewer with hints that only a psychic can help prevent catastrophe. And he prints it.

The cat was named Winston Churchill, "Church" for short (he was a British Shorthair). I had a cat named Fielding Melish (Woody Allen's character in Bananas) for 16 years, but I always just called him Fields. I think most people have nicknames for their pets.

belhade: In a totally unrelated coincidence, Mr. King is releasing a new book, a sequel to The Shining...


I thought you were joking so I had to google this unpossibilness:

With  Doctor Sleep, Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his previous novels,  The Shining. The novel features the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of  The Shining) and the twelve-year-old girl, Abra Stone, that he must save from The True Knot. Led by Rose the Hat, this group of almost immortal travelers criss-cross the country, periodically feeding on the psychic energy (which they call "steam") of children with the gift of "the shining." Dan drifted for decades in an attempt to escape his father's legacy, but eventually settled in a   town and works in a nursing home, where his remnant mental abilities provide comfort to the dying. With the aid of a cat that can foresee the future, Dan becomes "Doctor Sleep." After meeting Abra Stone, an epic war between good and evil ensues


No, dear god no....

Stayed there last year, neat place. Estes is a nice little town, shame about the flooding. While I am a hardcore Randi-esque skeptic I swore I heard kids singing about 2 or 3 am, and my wife thought somebody was breathing on her back. The second one, I doubt but the first I heard with my own ears and I had no idea about any legend until after. DO I believe in ghosts? Nope. But it was cool.

I did not know that.  I almost named my son Winston, until we realized how dumb it sounded while we pretended to hand someone the baby. "Here's Winston".  Yeah, no.  I will be naming my next dog Gary.

Yeah, it's good.  But after doing a little bit more checking up online on some of these theories, I'm convinced that for all of Kubrick's attention to detail, he seems to be rather sloppy when it came to film continuity.

Also having been on set for television quite a bit (and a couple of movies), with the millions of things going on for a director, the last thing he wants to waste time on is figuring out the name of a fake coffee brand label that is barely in a shot for less than a second.   I get occassional easter eggs but the idea that every single scene is set up with it  is crazy.
