Actually, Stephen King's " The Shining " had no Hedge Maze in it.
In the Book " The Shining " there were Animal shaped Topiaries that came to life as the Haunting progressed. ( I read it a while back...a long while back )
While making the Movie the Special effects crew didn't think they could make convincing possessed Topiaries so they substituted a hedge maze in for the evil bush animals.
Good call on their part. The Hedge Maze was creepy
