Below the brilliant Casper Van Dien gives us a taste of his favorite horror film:

“The Shining. – What isolation can do to a man is fascinating to me. We are such social creatures and I find the scariest things are the things that could easily happen to us. In the shining, Johnny loses it in a way that turns him against the ones he loves most. This is the beast that lives within us all.”
