Halloween Movie Tip #5 – Heeeeere’s Johnny! Watch Stanley Kubrick Take On Stephen King [VIDEO]
So, I'm 11 years old and my dad takes me, my sisters and a friend of mine to go see 'The Shining'. My dad liked to take us to movies that were getting good reviews, regardless of the rating of these movies (I did enjoy 'Animal House' when I was 9). Needless to say 'The Shining' was a freaky movie for me, but even as an adult I get the creeps whenever I watch it. Jack Nicholson is brilliant as a man gone mad and then you have the images of the murdered twins, crazy dead naked lady, redrum, freaky costume people, etc. What really does it for me is creepy music and the very end when you see the old picture from way back when and guess who is in it? You can't let Halloween go by without revisiting The Overlook Hotel! Classic.
