2. The Shining
Considered by some to be one of the greatest horrors of all time, The Shining has all the elements of a great horror movie. Jack Torrance, a recovering alcoholic with a violent past, takes up a winter job at the Overlook Hotel which will leave him and his family snow-trapped in the hotel over winter. As the family try and deal with life in isolation, the evil spirits from the past come out to play.
Stanley Kubrick directed the movie, and as always with Kubrick’s movies it’s packed with interesting camera angles and great images. At the time of release in 1980, like many of Kubrick’s movies, it was slow to gain popularity and had tepid responses from critics. However over time people have realised the efforts that were taken in making the movie a cinematography masterpiece and its popularity has soared.
