The F*cking Black Sheep: Stephen King's The Shining mini-series (Video)

While Stanley Kubrick's 1980 adaptation of the Stephen King novel THE SHINING is a great film to revisit at any time of the year, I have a feeling that viewings of it increase substantially when the weather turns cold. That's when Lance Vlcek likes to go back and watch the film again - and also when he likes to watch the unpopular 1997 THE SHINING mini-series that was directed by Mick Garris from a screenplay by Stephen King himself. Never a fan of the Kubrick film, King intended to do THE SHINING right this time around... but it didn't go over so well.

Personally, I don't mind the mini-series so much, even though I find that it pales in comparison to the Kubrick film at every turn. The only thing that holds me back from watching it more often is the casting of Danny Torrance. That is some of the worst child actor miscasting I've ever seen.

Lance enjoys the mini-series a bit more than I do, and with the latest edition of his The F*cking Black Sheep video series he lays out his thoughts on it and presents some reasons to check it out or give it another chance.

Take a look at the Black Sheep video below, and if you decide you want to watch the mini-series version of THE SHINING you can pick up a copy on Amazon.
