31 Days of Halloween - Day 18 "The Shining"

Join us all October long as we spotlight different horror movies every day with a brand new video!

God, do I love this movie. For someone that considers themselves a huge horror fan, I don't take this lightly when I say that Stanley Kubrick's The Shining is my favorite horror film of all time. The tone, the characters, the story that unfolds, all of it add to the perfect film.

Jack Nicholson's performance is truly a spectacle to behold and Shelly Duvall is equally captivating in a role that so few people give credit to. Having Kubrick mentally harass and torture her for her performance is something we'd likely not see nowadays, and hasn't really earned her any accolades in regards to the role. But to those that understand the process, there's an appreciation that exists for her role. I understand why others don't dig it -- I was in the same boat several years ago -- but now I find it fascinating and one of my favorite female performances ever.

Check out this horror classic and witness the pure genius of Stanley Kubrick.

I'd like my writing to further represent me as a person by providing different insights into the things currently on my mind. Whether it's writing about a movie, TV show, album, book, wrestling event, experience, or life lesson. I don't plan on making this a personal blog where I treat it like a diary. This is just supposed to represent… Me.
