“The Pursuit of the Premiere of Bly Manor” has an Easter egg for “The Shining” by Stephen King



Now that Netflix’s The Haunting of Bly Manor has been out for more than a week, giving many a chance to watch most or all of the 9-episode series, let’s quickly dive back into the first episode of “A Great Good Place” and let’s take a look at the funny nod of Stephen King / Shining, which flashes pretty quickly. Of course, it’s entirely consistent that director Mike Flanagan would throw a reference to King, and it’s Brilliant, given how he adapted King’s novels Game and Dr. Gerald Sun – the last of which was a sequel to both The King and The King. and Stanley Kubrick’s The Brilliant Movie, which features some of the most iconic horror characters of all time.

At the beginning of Bly Manor, Danny of Victoria Pedretti, who will soon move to Bly Manor, stays in a London hostel ̵

Of course, in Kubrick’s film, which contains many changes to the king’s original material, the room that haunts both Jack and Danny Thorens is Room 237. But in the book is Room 217. Here Danny returns to his room …

Here is a little background on the reason for changing the room number. The hotel that advocated for the exterior of The Shining “Overlook” in the film, The Timberland Lodge, posted the following details on its website:

Kubrick was asked not to depict room 217 (included in the book) in The Shining, because future guests in the lodge may be afraid to stay there. Thus, a non-existent room, room 237, was replaced in the film. Curiously and somewhat ironically, room 217 is requested more often than any other room in Timberline.

Naturally, Flanagan uses the original room number from the book for this fun little hat tip.

But that’s not the only detail behind The Haunting of Bly Manor. We found over 50 hidden ghosts hiding in the shadows of the series – look at it!
