As the years have progressed, though, it has not only cemented itself in the upper echelons of cinematic greatness, it's become a pop culture phenomenon. His books, short stories, and novellas have been translated into over 50 films, numerous television shows, and dozens of horror anthology TV episodes.

Wendy drags Jack's limp body to the pantry and locks him inside, just as he regains consciousness. She tries to get out the same window, but cannot fit. Physically speaking, that couldn't be true. People were jazzed up. He doesn't get far when a butler carrying a tray runs into him, spilling advocaat on his jacket.
