** The haunting needs to be elaborated on; Jack hears his father coming from the ''radio'', leading to Jack smashing it in a panic and isolating them even more from the rest of the world.

* Lloyd's face sprouting red sores, sweating blood, and turning a "hepatitic yellow", a la [[Literature.TheMasqueOfTheRedDeath The Masque of the Red Death]] as the Overlook (through the party guests) starts convincing him to go off of the wagon.
* The clock during the "party" - how the dome over the two little figures becomes coated with blood, bone, and brain matter, and the very realistic noises it makes.

* Danny's first vision of the Overlook, complete with a vision of a murdered Wendy and an insane Jack. And then, when he comes out of it and Jack comes home, the bag of groceries in the passenger side seat briefly turns into a mallet, one side stained with blood and hair.

* The reason why Jack lost his last job and had to take on the caretaker position. Before the Overlook, Jack had worked as a teacher at a fancy prep school, also serving as coach for the debate team. One of the students on the team had a bad stutter, and when Jack inevitably gave him the boot, he accused him of rigging things against him (which the story later implies that he did). Afterwards, Jack came out during lunch break to find the student slashing the tires of his car, and beat the shit out of him. And this was ''after'' he'd gone on the wagon.

Added DiffLines:

** Try reading that part again, knowing what happens afterwards. Jack and Wendy find Danny, and since she doesn't seem to notice the water stains on his clothing, she thinks that Jack lost his temper and hurt Danny again. Angry at Wendy for jumping to conclusions, Jack storms off, and ends up in the bar, where the hotel starts sinking its hooks into him.

* Anyone who has issues with flying will have a hard time getting through Halloran's trip back to the Overlook, with his plane taking a very bumpy trip through the blizzard. And his attempts to drive through the icy roads aren't much better.

to:

* King fully digs into his own experiences with drug addiction to create a chilling portrait of having a compulsion to do things you know are hurting yourself and your loved ones, and not being able to stop. Making it worse is that he later stated this was in no way deliberate, making the whole thing come off as a primal scream for help from his subconscious.

* The topiary animals in the novel are terrifying. What makes them even worse is the fact that they only seem to move when they ''aren't being looked at'' (yes, even in the split second Jack looks from one to the other), changing into a different position each time, getting closer and closer...

* The point where Wendy, finally able to see the ghosts, runs into Grady with his skull visibly split. "Great party, isn't it?"
