One of my least favorite questions in the world is: “What’s your favorite movie?” I get that a lot, obviously, but I always weasel out of it by either explaining that I have to break my favorite movies down into genres because it’s impossible to pick just one ultimate film or by kicking the person in the balls and sprinting away. Another reason it’s so difficult is because I prefer to be a Negative Nurnsy. That’s how I make all of my cool Internet friends, by criticizing and defecating on the hard work of others.
One movie that I won’t ever criticize is The Shining, or my Favorite Movie of All-Time, Category: Films that Scared the Sh*t Out of Me as a Kid (Okay, and Now, Too). And between the holiday season rolling in, my eternal fear of ever staying at a ski resort during a snow storm, South Park’s recent send-up of the Stephen King/Stanley Kubrick classic, and the fact that girls everywhere still awesomely dress as the dead twins for Halloween, I’ve become rather nostalgic.
So I scoured the webs and found some of my favorite tributes, photoshops, memes and just generally enjoyable pictures and GIFs regarding The Shining to share with you all, because I love them and they deserve to be shared. Also, working on the Worst Movies of the Year feature drives a good man insane. This is more therapeutic than anything.
