The Shining joins Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which won best comedy, as the second ever winner of the Tournament. Jack Nicholson, Stanley Kubrick, and Stephen King fought a long, hard battle together, beating The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist, and Halloween to reach yesterday’s finals matchup. Then, in a final epic battle of first-seeded horror classics, The Shining inched out what may be the narrowest victory we’ve ever had, beating Poltergeist by a margin of 50.6% to 49.4%!
