I've got 100 bones that says you'd have Griffin'd that clown with a check hook after diverting his attention by putting your arms behind your back.
On topic : The Shining. I'm a big fan of the horror genre but no movie in it's history can even come close to the sheer mania that movie oozes on every level. Everything from the two little girls who'd been hacked up by their father (the bartender) with an axe, to the references to the Donner party and cannibalism, to the way Jack unknowingly allows the hotel (via cabin fever) to externalize his faults as a man and father, to the switch Kubrick pulled with the disgusting decaying lady in the bathtub, to the elevator of blood and hints of sexual perversion, down to the way certain scenes are shot in reverse through a mirror to alter perception, to the chilling ending.
That movie f*cked with me for a while as a child and no film has ever even come close since.
