The Shining (1980) directed by Stanley Kubrick based on the Stephen King novel. Kubrick was a meticulous director who added many Easter eggs that are still being discovered in the film. Reports of Duvall being terrorized by Kubrick can be found all over the web. The Shining was filmed on a $19 million budget, and although Stephen King was mad that some elements were changed, this movie is still a classic. Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, and Danny Lloyd star in The Shining.

The Shining Plot Synopsis:

Signing a contract, Jack Torrance, a normal writer and former teacher agrees to take care of a hotel which has a long, violent past that puts everyone in the hotel in a nervous situation. While Jack slowly gets more violent and angry of his life, his son, Danny, tries to use a special talent, the "Shining", to inform the people outside about whatever that is going on in the hotel.
