Love scary movies? Check out homes, hotels and other spots where some of your favorite horror flicks were filmed.
Although The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colo., was the inspiration for Stephen King's best-selling novel The Shining, the exterior shots of Stanley Kubrick's movie version were filmed at the
Timberline Lodge, a historic ski lodge in Mount Hood, Ore. One piece of
hotel trivia: In the book, the sinister room is number 217, but the
hotel asked Kubrick to change the number to 237 in the movie so real
guests wouldn't avoid the room.
