The Feel Good Movie Of The Year

Perhaps the most chilling book I've ever read is Stephen King's The Shining, and perhaps the most chilling movie I've ever seen is Stanley Kubrick's film version of that book. Even twenty-five years or so after I first saw it, I stuill can't walk down an empty hotel hallway at night without picturing those twins or the door slightly cracked open.

That said, perhaps I've been looking at the book and the film all wrong. Perhaps I've totally missed the heart of King's story and the tenderness of Kubrick's vision.

Maybe The Shining was meant as a chick flick all along. (9.5mb)

Now I'll never see that movie in quite the same way again.
