    I am not sure why they are afraid of her in the movie except that she is evil so she is willing to go further than they are and old so she has more experience. In the book they go to the site that the Overlook was on not to use it against Rose but because that is where the Knot decided to camp out, partly because the evil that happened there draws them. Danny and Abra are not hiding but going on the offensive because they know that they have to end it. They should be more afraid in the book because there is more than Rose left for the final fight.

    Yeah I remember in the book there was more about how they would get energy from mass tragedies. Like during the 9/11 attacks they just sat and watched and got sustenance from that.

    Throughout the movie, Abra is shown multiple times to be stronger than Rose the Hat, so why were her and Danny so worried about her at the climax?


    Spoiler:
    I haven't seen the film yet, but in the book she was still learning about her abilities and it wasn't obvious that she had the upper hand until they were in the endgame. That help at all?

    Several times Abbra briefly mentally tussled with Rose, but Rose was able to defend herself. Near the end of the movie, Rose loaded up on all of the remaining "steam", so at that time, she was at maximum strength.

    Well, yes sort of, but they also had the ghosts in, Danny's lock box to use at the Overlook to battle Rose with as well. That was part of the reason that they chose to fight her at the old site.

    In the movie, it just played out weird. Like, the whole movie was Abbra being a steel toed work boot vs. Rose's ant. And then it's like Abbra and Danny said, "Hey, we're going to have to kill this ant, let's bring twenty of our friends to help."

    I don't think it was that extreme. I think Abra just caught Rose off guard. Rose thought no one could match her and didn't take her as seriously as she should have at first. She was still able to get into Abra's head and to track her. She just couldn't get out as easy or force Abra out of her head as easy as Abra did to her. She does admit Abra is stronger but I think it was more of a wasp compared to a queen ant than a boot to an ant. Of course Rose was much more dangerous when she had worker ants left (like she does in the book.)
