Horrors of October 2013 - The Shining (#31)

The Shining (1980)

Do I really need to say anything? One of the true masterpieces of the genre. Other than being one of my favorite horror films and one of the few to scare me as a kid, I also wanted to re-watch it in preparation for a screening of ROOM 237. Upon this recent viewing, I wasn't aware how unintentionally funny the inter-titles are; one second, Scatman Crothers is waiting by the phone then BAM! "8 A.M." and he's on a plane. If you are curling up to this tonight as well, make sure it says "Stanley Kubrick's" at the top and not "Stephen King's".
