The layout of the hotel makes no sense whatsoever. Stuart Ullman’s office has a nice big window in the middle of the building, the Colorado Room has multiple floor to ceiling windows with a mystery hallway behind them. There’s hallways that lead into walls, windows that can only be seen from inside, hotel rooms that seem to overlap the same space, the hotel interiors have nice right angles while the outside doesn’t. The freezer flips sides of the hallway between shots. The spaces between the doorways in Room 237’s hallway are far too small to actually contain any rooms of that size. This was done deliberately for dramatic/horror effect.
Some places are like people: some shine and some don’t.
come and play with us, forever, and ever, and ever..
