Stanley Kubrick's The Shining is one of the greatest horror films, nay, films, of all time. A masterclass in suspense film-making, the whole thing is a masterpiece, but the moment that sticks in everyone's mind is when Jack Nicholson (who announced his 'retirement' from acting today) reaches the apex of his insanity, blasting his axe through the door and uttering those now timeless two words: "Here's Johnny!"

These great gifs show just how he prepared for the scene. Really illuminating stuff.
