At first glance, The Shining seems like your traditional horror movie until you actually watch it. The artistic quality of the entire film elevates it a level higher than most of its contemporary.

Most notable of these are the amazingly bold and distinct patterns you could find throughout the entire film, like the hallway carpet and the hotel maze. Seemingly innocuous details like the typewriter and the keychain become things of horror.

You can also transform your space into the artsy look of The Shining, and create a room that will make your guests wonder at the subtly unsettling feeling they experience.
