    The Shining

    First of all, Jack Nicholson was GREAT! He was just crazy enough, and his 'Heeeere's Johnny' will always be in the history books of great movie quotes. Shelley Duvall's mouse-like features and voice made her perfect for her role of Wendy, a woman fearing the loss of her husband's...

    Night of the Demons

    I was disappointed when they said they were gonna make a remake of this movie. It's one of my favorites. It had EVERYTHING a great horror movie needed. Personality in the characters, nudity, blood, scary makeup, and a happy ending. Then they are just gonna ruin it!? The hell man...
