The Shining

Stephen King hates this film for the simple reason that Kubrick made Jack Torrance lose his mind on his own, rather than having the Overlook Hotel possess him to murder his family. I love this film for the simple reason that Jack Torrance loses his mind on his own rather than having the Overlook Hotel possess him to murder his family.

A true loss of volition is scarier than any supernatural force, killer clown or stranger in the dark. You are your worst nightmare.
