The Shining (Movies)

"You mean The Shining? All work and no play makes Wallace psychotic. I cough, like, once; he told me to take it outside. I asked him if he wanted a pizza and he was all, like...'Did we come here to eat or study?'"

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! The Shining, originally a horror novel by Stephen King, was brought to life by Stanley Kubrick and Jack Nicholson in the film adaptation of 1980. (The less said about the 1997 miniseries with Steven Weber, the better.) With lush visuals, a terrifying Nicholson, and a seriously scary setting, The Shining finds it way into pop culture all over the place. Piz thinks that all studying and no play makes Wallace psychotic, but he might want to be a little more careful — crazy people possessed by evil spirits are notoriously redrum- murder-happy.
