Tuesday Movie: The Shining

Since tomorrow is Halloween, today's movie recommendation is a scary classic.  Good old Jack Torrance is a writer with a serious case of writing block.  I can relate.

The Shining came out in 1980 and was directed by Stanley Kubrick.  Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall star as Jack and Wendy.  Poor, poor Wendy.  I think the scene where she's wielding a baseball bat and Jack is following her up the stairs and tormenting her is one of the most terrifying moments of the film.  The blood, the creepy lady in the bathtub, the twins?  Eh, not so much.

Here's a recut version of the trailer to make you smile.  So, what candy treats will you be handing out or stealing from your kid's trick-or-treat bag?

    1. Yeah, he was pretty darn good in this. It's one of the few films I have watched several times and it keeps getting better with each viewing.
