As the Tower is the lynchpin in the fabric of space-time, these assaults have contributed to the world moving on, or slowly decaying and unraveling. The Tower is Roland Deschain's life long goal. It is the fourth King-derived movie this year, following Pet Sematary, In the Tall Grass (Netflix’s third King adaptation in three years) and, still on release, It: Chapter Two.

That includes The Shining, King’s 1977 horror novel about a family man employed as an off-season caretaker of the Overlook Hotel,, who succumbs to his own madness.
