The Shining

Day three on the five days of scary movies.

It’s been a spooky week so far, and it’s about to get worse with our number 3 movie. . . .


The Shining



Yikes. Can we say REDRUM?


Oh, man, those stares Jack Nicholson throws at the camera. . .  Holy-freaking-cow. And the trademark face in the slightly open doorway.

This movie almost made it to the number one spot . . . . . .


What’d you think of The Shining?


And if you’ve missed the previous ones, here they are:

#5 was Amityville Horror

#4 was Nightmare on Elm Street



Throwback Thursday

So, do you remember The Shining?

With Jack Nicholson?

Oh boy, he was creepy, wasn’t he?

But not so sure about his co-star, Shelley Duvall, though. Remember Olive Oyl from Popeye? I saw her in that, so I couldn’t get past that image. . . LOL.

Okay, how ’bout REDRUM? The voice that little kid took freaked me out. And he talked with his finger, remember that?

I mean, us writers–yeah, we’re a little weird, I know–but come on, writing the same phrase over and over and over?  All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.


Did you see it? Man, it just doesn’t seem like they can make scary movies like that any more. Now it seems like they’re just more blood and guts instead. . . Or, maybe I’m just getting old and grouchy, huh?


question-markOkay, these lines are tough ones….Give it a shot  ☺

1. “Every 10 or 11,000 years I make a horrible mistake.”

2. “Lord, I tell you one thing… she sho’ do know how to throw a fit!”

3. “Even now I cannot understand the measure of a life, but I can tell you this. I know that when he died, his eyes were closed andhis heart was open. And I’m pretty sure he was happy with his final resting place, because he was buried on the mountain. And that was against the law.”

4. “What day is it? What year?”
