“The Shining” tops list of scariest horror films
Jigsaw, step aside. “The Shining” featuring Jack Nicholson as an axe-wielding psycho has topped a list of the scariest horror movies of all time. With Halloween just days away, the writers at film website Totalscifionline.com compiled a list of the 100 greatest horror movies.
“Nearly 30 years after its initial release, The Shining remains an unparalled study in isolation, madness and paranoia,” said Matt McAllister, editor of Totalscifionline.com. “The expansive sets, surreal visuals, and an intense performance from Jack Nicholson add up to a film guaranteed to give viewers a sleepless night.”
“Rosemary’s Baby”, directed by Roman Polanski, came in second place, while British cult classic, “The Wicker Man”, famous for Britt Ekland’s naked dancing, was third.
