Plans to dig up a pet cemetery at the hotel that inspired Stephen King’s horror novel “The Shining” have neighbors feeling aggrieved.
The graves at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park are to be moved to the other side of a small pond, making way for wedding and corporate retreat pavilion.
The project is a stone’s throw from about 18 townhomes in the Stanley Historic District. Neighbor Roxanne VanSkiver and others say they’re worried about noise, as well as the loss of the historic burial ground for animals.
What they DON’T say is that they are worried about a demon infestation, as in King’s other novel “Pet Sematary“. The Stanley Hotel now has a reputation for being haunted (it’s not, but they capitalize on that).
A local psychic is trying to be helpful, saying, “Stirring up the bones of the dead” could kick a hornet’s nest of paranormal unrest.”
construction accidents, delays and burst pipes could plague the project if spirits stuck “between this world and the other world” are disturbed
and says those problems could be avoided if they… bring in a psychic. Yeeeeaaaahhh……
There is zero solid evidence that spirits are disturbed by construction activity. This is neither a Stephen King novel NOR a Scooby Doo episode. If paranormal people are going to make such a “hornet’s nest” claim, they need more than sensational just-so stories.
