Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining

© Warner Brothers Entertainment, 1980

We don’t normally like to be scared out of our minds, but … if you are leaning that way this Halloween season, may we recommend a truly wonderful film classic with all the artful direction, cinematography, art direction and shot composition to keep cineastes like us glued to the imagery even when our instinct is to cover our eyes. Directed by the amazing Stanley Kubrick. With Cinematography by John Alcot, Production Design by Roy Walker, Art Direction by Les Tomkins and a truly horrifying story based on the novel by Stephen King. Yikes!

    Another great pick, m&j. And what a creepy film – those twins still inhabit my nightmares! Happy Halloween to you!
