Scream-A-Day No. 31 – THE SHINING

Drum Roll please!  The final Scream-A-Day for 2011 is the Classic Stephen King Horror Story – THE SHINING.

Scream-A-Day No. 27 – HOUSE ON SKULL MOUNTAIN

Thanks to my boy Eric, I was introduced to a movie from the 1970’s that I don’t even know how I missed all these years.  It’s a horror movie with a black cast in the vain of BLACULA.  But instead of vampires, this revolves around ghosts, zombies, and voodoo.  And some interracial cousin-on-cousin love action. …
