Day 8 of the 31 Days of Halloween countdown:
The Shining (1980)
I don't think this film needs an introduction or a play-by-play telling you what it is about. If you do need one, then stop reading now, go to the video store, and buy it.
A film about the complete meltdown of the mind of a writer stuck in a huge vacancy with his wife and son. Truly scary. Supposedly, Stephen King did not like this adaptation of his book and allowed for another one to be made. That other version was frigging awful! There is nothing better than watching Jack Nicholson get crazy with an axe.
