'The Shining'

Stanley Kubrick's 1980 masterpiece of modern horror still chills to the bone, especially when little Danny Torrance (Danny Lloyd) spouts "Redrum" and sees those creepy twins in the hallway, beckoning to "Come and play with us." Based on Stephen King's novel, the story follows Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall as they move in to the remote Overlook Hotel to be the winter caretakers. A perfect opportunity for Jack to write his novel, he gradually becomes distant and gets cabin fever, falls off the wagon -- courtesy of the ghostly bartender Lloyd, types "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" over and over and over and then picks up an axe to cure his troubles.
