Bad Times at the El Royale and The Shining

A Discussion on Setting as a Character

Bad Times at the El Royale and The Shining

Drax: If he's a planet, how could he make a baby with your mother? He would smush her.

Sometimes a setting is so rich, it feels like a whole other character... Sometimes the setting IS a whole other character. Both of these movies are suspenseful tales of hotels. Both of these hotels are so evocative, that they feel like protagonists or antagonists you can relate to. Both of these hotels are technically fake (although the Overlook is inspired by a couplea different places you can visit...).

BUT! only one of these movies have a setting that IS a character... Is it Bad Times at the El Royale or The Shining?
