The Movie: The Shining (1980)
What Is It?: No amount of Stephen King’s whining can make Stanley Kubrick’s hotel-sized horror less iconic or enjoyable. Ghosts, cabin fever, anger, and tumblers of imaginary scotch send Jack Nicholson into an axe-swinging fit of redrum.
Why Today?: December 2nd is the day the redrum shit hits the fan in King’s novel.
