The opening scene of “The Dark Tower” shows an idyllic-seeming neighborhood full of kids, including a pair of twin girls in blue dresses.Parked on the desk of Jake’s therapist is a black-and-white photo of a particular hotel: the Overlook, the setting for King’s novel “The Shining.”In that story, the dog contracts rabies and terrorizes a town, turning from a lovable pet to a frightening, lethal creature.When Jake finds the house he saw in his dream in Brooklyn, it’s adorned with a threatening sign warning of an attack dog.The sign calls back everyone’s favorite scary junkyard dog, Chopper, from “Stand By Me.”The title for one of the wrecked rides is Pennywise, the scary, shapeshifting clown from “It” that murders folks in the town of Derry.Reaching various locations using sci-fi portals in “The Dark Tower” requires putting in pairs of numbers that serve as addresses for where the portal will take you.The Dark Tower” makes use of a concept that pops up again and again in other Stephen King novels: the psychic ability he refers to as “shine” or “shining.
