CLASSIC MOVIE GHOSTS TAKE ONE

Ghosts In A Haunted Hotel: The Shining Twins

Not only is the classic 1980 film, The Shining, one of the greatest psychological thrillers of all time, but some critics consider it to be one of the best films in any genre. And it’s all about ghosts—ghosts who mess with the already messed-up psyche of alcoholic American writer Jack Torrance, played by Jack Nicholson in one of his finest performances.

The Shining begins with Jack taking a job as the winter caretaker at the old, haunted Overlook Hotel in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. He is accompanied by his wife and young son, Danny, and he intends to get some writing work done during his term of isolation at the remote lodge.

However, after a severe snowstorm cuts the family off from the rest of humanity, the hotel’s many ghosts begin dismantling Jack’s mind. Before long, he takes a turn toward psychosis and begins trying to kill his wife and son.

In the clip posted here, young Danny Torrance meets the ghosts of twin girls who apparently were murdered at the hotel. It’s one of the most famously scary scenes ever filmed. Enjoy it!

BTW . . . The movie was based on the 1977 Stephen King novel of the same title.
