A Stanley Kubrick's Masterpiece! This is not a generic horror movie with any jump scares. It will slowly kick in and will start disturbing you. A perfect film for having endless conversation with friends. Do watch the documentary : Room 237.

A masterpiece of modern horror It’s time to enter Colorado’s secluded Overlook Hotel for this review of Stanley Kubrick’s psychologically terrifying 1980 horror classic: The Shining, based loosely on Stephen King’s 1977 gothic horror novel of the same name. All the elements and adjectives that a great, intellectual thriller should have can be found in this undisputed masterpiece of a film. While watching this film, through its outstanding cinematography, the infallible performances of the legendary Jack Nicholson (as menacing, devilish madman Jack Torrance), Shelley Duvall (as Wendy Torrance), Danny Lloyd (as Danny), the haunting score of Béla Bartók, and a gem of a script, one feels the violence, terror, and intensity in almost every film frame. The film plays with your emotions and fears in fascinating and original ways. It’s a film for which there are truly no words or sentences strong enough to convey its chilling beauty, and prestigious status. A must-watch for any film buff and horror movie connoisseur out there.

The worst you can do is trying to watch it on your tiny phone. This has to be watched with proper settings, the popcorn, dark room, load sound system, and a huge monitor. Then and only then will the creepiness surround you. Stanley Kubrick, a true master of cinema.

One of the best films I have ever seen. Terrifying and artisticly brilliant, the acting was amazing, Stephen king hates it because it was better than his book. The only real problem with this movie is the hype surrounding it, this review is even hyping it... Everyone hears about how good it is and b uilds up an idea that's enevitbly wrong and they are mostly dissatisfied, it can't be seen through a clean lens anymore.
