Films Inspired by the Shining

Nearly 40 years after its release, Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" gets a sequel with "Doctor Sleep," an adaptation of Stephen King's novel, which sees an all-grown-up Danny Torrance facing alcoholism, psychic vampires and a painful revisit of the Overlook Hotel. The decades between the release of "The Shining" and its follow-up have given plenty of other would-be successors the opportunity to channel its accomplishments or pay homage to them. Here are seven films that reflect the influence of "The Shining," whether in the form of narrative similarities or appreciative Easter eggs.
