This included quote-alongs to movies, special Q&A panels, and best of all regular re-releases of classic movies on the big screen.
The Shining is the only movie that I acknowledge as original and engaging art , but it's still not one of my favorites to watch.
I think this is a little unorthodox, usually in supernatural films, a cup will move an inch without anyone touching it, or there'll be a loud knocking sound in the distance *gasps* and that's mainly why I don't like supernatural films, because so often they make the unknown look so harmless, effectively failing to create tension and therefore failing to establish an effective prelude to when the boring action in those films tends to kick in.
