THE SHINING
   The Cast  IMDb Rotten Tomatoes

There are so many killer moments in Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of The Shining that will never leave me--I'm talking childhood traumatization here... what Mr. Kubrick masterfully crafted was a perfect marriage of audio and visual that penetrated my mind stabbing each and every sensory receptor into agonizing submission. Of course, he had great source material to draw inspiration from in legendary scribe, Stephen King's seminal novel of the same title.
