The Shining: Jack Nicholson terrifies as Jack Torrance, a writer who slowly goes insane from isolation with his family in an empty (or is it?) mountain resort. The Shining beat Texas Chainsaw Massacre in round one and Poltergeist in round two to reach the semi-finals. Check out our The Shining quotes page to find out why it made it so far.


Halloween: Michael Myers is one of the most well-known slashers in film history, and he got his start in the bone-chilling 1978 horror classic Halloween. The film upset the third-seeded Psycho and the second-seeded Scream to make the final four. Check out our Halloween quotes page to find out why.
