The Shining tops frightening film list

The 1980 Stanley Kubrick classic, starring Jack Nicholson as a deranged writer, topped the list of the world’s scariest movies ahead of Rosemary’s Baby, directed by Roman Polanski.

The original Wicker Man from 1973 came in third in the poll, which was dominated by horror classics.

The top ten also included Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 thriller Psycho, John Carpenter’s slasher Halloween, and Night of the Living Dead from 1968.
