The Shining (1980) 84%

Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of the Stephen King novel was famously dismissed by King himself, but it remains one of the most iconic pieces of horror cinema, highlighted by a particularly creepy performance from Jack Nicholson as a struggling writer who relocates his family to an empty hotel during a harsh winter season and slowly goes mad.
