Shining, The

Dir: Stanley Kubrick
Cast: Jack Nicholson, Shelly Duvall, Danny Lloyd
USA/UK, 1980

It has been many years since I have seen this film, in fact I think I only saw it once at a friends birthday party where I remember the host trying to calm down her brother who was also watching it but saying “Don’t worry, it’s just ketchup”. I’ll tell ya one thing, it ain’t ketchup. Again, Stanley Kubrick brought us this visually stunning and scary as hell horror movie with imagery I will never forget, although with this one I almost wish I could.

This film is including in my list of Scariest Movies of all Time!!

You're going to think I'm crazy but I'm actually going to order the book from the library. I find the story to be quite fascinating although very disturbing, yes. I didn't see this movie until about 7 years ago and was surprised I wasn't as scared as I thought I'd be but it is definitely a horror classic.
