The Shining Is A Christmas Movie - Here's Proof

While director Stanley Kubrick’s Stephen King adaptation The Shining is widely recognized as a horror classic, it is rarely seen for its secondary genre — The Shining is a Christmas movie. While The Shining is a lot darker and scarier than most festive offerings, as a story of a family forced to work together to survive a harsh winter, it is ideal Christmas viewing. This may or may not be intentional on the part of the writer and director Stanley Kubrick, but The Shining nevertheless shares a lot of the elements that make holiday movies so beloved and, as such, can be added to the pantheon of classic Christmas horrors.
