Stanley Kubrick: 'The Shining' (1980)
Kubrick directed only 13 feature films during his lifetime, and he waited until his third-to-last to helm a horror movie. His 1980 adaptation of Stephen King's "The Shining" was famously criticized by the author, and at the time it suffered from mixed reviews and only so-so box office. What a turnaround! Now it's considered a classic of the genre, inspiring critical reevaluations and even drawing obsessive conspiracy theories outlined in the compelling 2012 documentary "Room 237."
