Added DiffLines:

* Dan finally confronting Jack and showing that he is the better man of the two by resisting the Overlook's temptations. Despite all he goes through and it being a brutal struggle at the best of times, Dan never breaks his sobriety.


** True Knot are strong enough to not instantly die from sniper rounds, but not strong enough to survive either. Considering this, dying more slowly rather than being knocked out instantly sounds very unpleasant. In the film, Rose appears to be overwhelmed not necessarily with grief but also presumably the pain of her lackeys being incapacitated as they die. Since we saw how they tortured Bradley the Baseball Boy earlier, it feels like they had this agonizing death coming to them.

* Billy and Dave helping Dan to ambush the True Knot. Billy helps Dan to gun down members of the True Knot to assist his friend while Dave remains behind to protect his daughter Abra. This makes their deaths later on more heartbreaking.
* A villainous awesome moment for Snakebite Andi. Rather than die the pitiful death her book counterpart did, the film's version directs her last words to Billy: "Kill yourself". Billy is forced to comply, right in front of a horrified Dan, and Andi [[DieLaughing literally has the last laugh.]]

* [[Creator/RebeccaFerguson Rebecca Ferguson's]] chilling portrayal of Rose the Hat can steal the show for some people. She portrays someone with UncannyValley in personality form and makes the role her own. The depravity of Rose is so obscene that Rebecca had a lot of trouble staying in character for the murder of Bradley the Baseball Boy.

** Even better, it can be argued that Dan [[TheDogBitesBack finally took vengeance against the hotel for destroying his family and tormenting him for so long]]. After years of drinking and trying to block out the pain of what happened, Dan's come back to where it all began, and the very first thing he does is ensure that, no matter what happens, the Overlook is going to be reduced to ashes. And to make it better, in the end, Abra tells Dan's spirit that she heard the Overlook scream. That's right, the Overlook, the same place that tormented Dan and anybody else who step foot into the place, including every single spirit that haunted him to adulthood... '''''screamed''''' as they was destroyed. CatharsisFactor doesn't even describe it.

* To tie into its prologue in 1980, the film opens up with the classic WB Shield from 1984-98, complete with static background and the first seven notes of its predecessor's theme. Brilliant.

* Rose the Hat appears to be getting the best of Danny and is deriving great enjoyment from this apparent victory as she tortures the steam out of him, but is quickly reduced to terror when Danny unlocks the spirits of the Overlook from his mind and she is rendered helpless by the steam-hungry spirits. For that very brief moment, the Overlook Hotel is Danny's cavalry, and Rose is utterly defenseless against the hungry ghosts who vaporize here quickly but painfully.

* Young Danny being taught how to lock up the ghosts that have followed him from the condemned Overlook; having been scared to the point of wetting himself previously, the next time sees him calmly walk into the bathroom with the ghost and close the door; we then hear the ''ghost'' screaming.
