2 Perfect Movies for a Snow Day

The trees in my backyard, weighed down by heavy snowfall

Snowed in for five days now, we're spending lots of time reading, huddling by the fireplace with hot cocoa, taking long wintry walks through the snow, and watching movies. Today I'm in the mood for these two:


Stephen King's delightful tale of a writer kidnapped, injured and snowbound by a crazed fan, forced to write her preferred version of his story.

Easy to watch, not too complicated, and nothing that will give one nightmares. Just a good fun light horror/suspense film, perfect with popcorn.

The Shining

Who can forget the snowy maze scene? The desolation, isolation and creepy long hallways? Perfect for a snowy evening where you're terrified by the film, yet cozily wrapped up in your blankie in front of your cheery fireplace. Good luck getting to sleep after viewing though, no matter how many times you've re-watched this film.
