"The Shining" would have been a shorter movie if Wendy would have had a shotgun when Jack axed the door!

In that battle, I will select shotgun.

However, I understand in close quarters an axe in the right hands is very effective.

Haha... I watched this movie about a month ago on cable. When it first came out I recall people thinking it was intense. It was pretty darned tamed by today's standard of intense. That movie is a classic.
