The Shining [hph2013 Take 14]


The Shining

A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.

Why did I include this film? It’s a classic psychological thriller, and if you don’t know that, then you really need to look into the genre a bit.

Directed by Stanley Kubrick

Written by Stanley Kubrick based on Stephen King’s novel
