I avoided watching this film for most of my life. Seeing it reminded me why.
This is possibly one of the scariest horror films ever made. Eerily scary, THE SHINING is a masterpiece of terror. Jack Nicholson and Shelly DuVall are good as the happily married couple who are torn apart when they and their son, Danny (Danny Floyd) take on the job as caretakers of the Overlook Hotel.

Aside from THE EXORCIST, this film ranks as the best horror movie of all time. The film did not really scare be, but it petrified me. Well done, Stephen King! After this, read the trivia section and find out some interesting facts about the making of the movie and how damn crazy director Stanley Kubrick was. But hey, we gotta give the guy credit. He did afterall, create one of the scariest movies of all time.

Excellent Film. Stanley Kubrick was a master. Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall are great. Must see film.
I've seen the Shining a few times in the past and I just sat through it again last night, after watching a bunch of below par even zero films. I will discuss those later. The Shining is a master film. I don't believe it's perfect. I have not read the book, so I cannot comment on differences with the film. I have read other Stephen King books and I know he's very visual and in-depth with his characters. Films don't have the luxury of time to describe and show everything. If you want to see the best movie ever, first acquire some imagination. Then read the book.

Here's what I saw in the film: It is professionally made. Incredible cinematography from beginning credits to the end. Great scenes. Great dialogue. Great acting. Nicholson is incredible. Maybe a little too much in areas but that's OK. Shelley Duvall was also incredible. Some people said she was a weak character. I did not see that. I saw a woman who was trying to protect her son and to deal with an angry loser husband and not trying to make things worse. And she stood up to him and even knock him out and protected herself. And the terror Duvall showed I have not seen in too many other movies. It got to be a bit too much with too many similar scenes and that I believe is in the director's hands, some of those scenes were apparently cut out of the European version. The music was mostly great. But there was a scene nearing the end where there was a droning annoying sound which was way too loud. Again, maybe they can remaster that volume down. Danny Lloyd as the kid was great. He showed some great terror and his dialogue and delivery was all beautiful. The redrum murder dialogue was a bit silly. It went nowhere. Barry Nelson was also great as the hotel manager. Scatman Crothers was good as the cook. He was essential in his death scene. Great stuff. But they should have cut some of the scenes where he's traveling back to the hotel. All that slows the pace and detracts rather than adds to the suspense.

My biggest complaint is they spent too much time on Duvall's terror, it became repetitive. And they spent too much time on the cooks return to the hotel, all boring nonsense. There was a few other scenes where Duvall and the cook called the cops on the radio, that should have definitely been shortened. I also found it odd that here's a family with a school age boy that's not going to school or there is no home schooling. They should have made a comment or a scene where the kid was being home schooled rather than always trying to find something to play with. There was also the talk with the kid and the cook that they both had this power of the "Shining" which was not explored further. Only in that the cook knew that there was a problem. They should have also gone into how the hotel being built on top of an old Indian burial ground related to the murders, and what's up with all the ghosts and how they relate to the caregiver. There also should have been a few more scenes showing Jack gradually losing his mind. So, this is definitely not a perfect movie. There are plot holes. I only listed the ones that I found. I'm sure others can find another 100 other problems. However, unless someone has an unlimited budget and time maybe they can make a more perfect movie, we have to balance the good with the bad.

So, I believe I will take my own advice and read the book.

I know nothing about the best horror movie ever nonsense that people keep throwing around on IMDb. I just viewed for the first and last time Rosemarie's Baby. People love this crap and say it's the best horror or even the best movie ever. That's a perverted joke. It's not even a good movie. The best part is they had the budget to hire real actors. The story, the packing, the dialogue, the music, ALL CRAP. Just a plain BORING nonsense of a movie. Now, others say Alien is the best Sc-Fi movie ever. It's not. What it is is an excuse to show expensive dolls and props. Again, worst acting, the story is garbage (a bunch of dirtbags in charge of a space ship, smoking cigarettes, rerouted to capture a deadly alien. Maybe the company should have sent a professional military team rather than these idiots. But then it would have turned into another Stallone/Schwarzenegger/Wills movie). Now there's a special hatred I have for a movie called Suspiria, by Dario Argento. People love this garbage. On the contemporary front of loser films, we have the grand loser of them all the so called Star Wars VII, The Farce Awakens. These are not films, but simply a copy/paste cheap comic book dumb cartoon movies. They're all the same. Don't think too much. Once someone pays the ticket price that should be enough, they shouldn't have to spend anymore brain cells to think about what is going on on screen, everything is spelled out, and nothing is left to the imagination. A bunch of jumpy action scenes, a roller coaster ride to nowhere.

Well, at least we have The Shining. Grade B+, 8 stars.
Terrifying In Places But Ultimately Confusing
With THE SHINING Stanley Kubrick grabs the audience with the very first shot of the opening title sequence: A zoom shot over a lake as bombastic and very disconcerting music is played and as the music continues eldritch cries of children can be heard in the background


This is scary and Kubrick also injects even more terrifying moments into the movie . Three people husband and wife Jack and Wendy Torrance along with their young son Danny stay at a remote hotel as caretakers during the winter , a winter that sees them snowed in so right away you know this family can't easily escape or call for help so did anyone else feel their heart jump Wendy comes screaming to Jack saying they're not alone in the hotel and that there's an old woman there ? Did anyone get a fright when Jack confronted her in the bathroom . THE SHINING is full of these very scary moments

" If it's got so many scary bits and works in terrifying you Theo why only seven out of ten ? Surely this must be something of a horror masterpiece "

It was awarded seven out of ten because that's what THE SHINING deserves over all . Despite moments of heart-attack inducing fear that's all they are - Moments , which makes THE SHINING rather patchy and we have to endure many slow moments . You want to find out how boring it is being a caretaker at a remote hotel ? Watch this movie

I could have forgiven the slow moments but my major gripe is that I found the movie confusing . I have never read King's novel but that doesn't matter because an adapted screenplay should make sense whether the audience has read the book or not and since the message board for THE SHINING is overflowing asking this and that question as to what the ending was about ? , How was Jack Possessed ? What is that photograph about ? etc this means the story has been badly adapted for the silver screen , which considering the potential can possibly be described as unforgivable since my abiding memory of this movie is how much it caused me to scratch my head , nott how much it caused me to jump out of my seat
Just a masterpiece!
Stanley Cubrick's "The Shining" is -at least for me as a movie fan- the greatest horror movie of all time and undoubtedly one of the greatest movies of all time. This movie is the result of a cooperation of two all time greats, Jack Nickolson and Stanley Cubrick, so its success is not really a big surprise. As a horror movie it brings to the table exactly what you want to see in a movie of this genre ie a chilling and horrifying atmosphere, an intriguing story and sensational performances and not the jumpscare-filled mess that the majority of today's horror movies, including the major titles, provide you more times than not. "The Shining" manages to give you the scare of your life slowly but steadily as the story and the mystery of the eerie Overlook Hotel unravels. I think that what pushes "The Shining" over the top as a movie is that it has great replay value and gives you the opportunity to research on your own about what happened and what is going on, in order to finally understand it. As a result you dive deeper into its mystery and love it even more. If you like movies that you should definitely put it in your watchlist RIGHT NOW!!!
Jack Torrance Meets David Bowman
What can I say about the scariest movie I have ever seen that has not already been said by others more articulate than yours truly? Do not view this film expecting to see a screen version of the Stephen King novel. Rather, this is a Stanley Kubrick film, and to fully appreciate it one should judge it within the context of Kubrick's entire body of work as a serious filmmaker. Thematically, THE SHINING relates most closely to 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, though flourishes of PATHS OF GLORY, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE and BARRY LYNDON do manage to figure prominently in the film's overall technique.

In a nutshell (no pun intended), Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall co-star with Oregon's Timberline Lodge - enlisted to portray the exterior of the Overlook Hotel - in a story that appears on the surface to be about ghosts and insanity, but deals with issues of child abuse, immortality and duality.

What the film might lack initially in terms of coherence is more than made up for in technique. Garrett Brown (the male voice in those old Molson Golden commercials), inventor of the Steadicam, chases young Danny Lloyd through hotel corridors and an amazing snow maze, providing magic-carpet-ride fluidity to scenes that ten years earlier would have been impossible to accomplish. If the film starts off too slow, remember who the director is. This man likes to take his time, and the results are well worth it: incredible aerial shots of the Overlook Hotel; horrific Diane Arbus-inspired twins staring directly at us; portentous room 237 and its treasure trove of terrible secrets; elevators that gush rivers of blood in slow-motion; Jack Torrance's immortality found via the hotel (akin to David Bowman's journey through the Space Gate); and some of the best use of pre-existing music ever assembled for a motion picture.

It would take a book to examine and defend the film's strong points and drawbacks. If you've never seen it, you owe it to yourself to watch it alone with the lights off, with no interruptions, and make sure that it's raining. This is a cinematic experience that changed my life at the age of 14. Makes a great double feature with Robert Wise's 1963 thriller THE HAUNTING.
Horrid Movie
Stephen King is one of the greatest American novelists in the past century. While he is dubbed a "horror writer," he is much more than that. He is a character writer, and while his novels are intended to scare, characters are the central point of the novels. They rely so heavily on backstory that the characters are practically real. However, this is very hard to do on film and it can result in making the story seem unimportant. So, as you can expect, I was not eager to see how they could ruin The Shining. Well, after reading the spectacular novel, I moved onto the film. After watching the film, I was flaming mad. The film The Shining does not fail from their overuse of backstory. These characters are completely shallow and you don't care about them. King novels are hard to adapt, but they can be done well. Carrie is an example of that. However, this movie is an awful adaptation. Kubrick basically took some character names, some locations, and made his own "scary hotel" movie. Why he couldn't just make his own "scary hotel" movie, I don't know. The acting is, for the most part, garbage. Shelley Duvall gives one of the worst performances I've ever seen. She's just so awful that you want her to get killed, as opposed to the novel. I just felt that I didn't care about anybody in this film. It felt empty and like there was no point to anything in the end. King said that he doesn't like the film because it doesn't make you feel. I agree completely with that. I felt nothing other than lack of interest when I watched this stinker. It wasn't even passable as a good stand-alone film. I hated every minute of this film. It was supposedly psychological horror, but it didn't make me think at all. This movie is horrible, and I hope book readers never have to witness an adaptation as bad as this atrocity...well, okay, there is the '97 TV movie, but even that's not as bad as this crap!
An Amazing Film
This is how horror movies should be. When I first watched this, my mom was complaining about how there was no real given explanation for all that was happening. Oddly enough, that's one of the reasons I love it so much. Kubrick understands the nature of fear, and knows that the unknown is infinitely more frightening than the explained. You can interpret it any way you want to. And I think this film is better than the book: there is no sunny happy ending, or at least it isn't shown, which is good in my opinion as it really didn't fit in with all the darkness and dementia. And Kubrick made another departure that I prefer: instead of having Dick Halloran save the Torrances, he is killed which just escalates everything while at the same time being a kind of release. And Kubrick manages to make the film scary before anything bad actually happens. It takes skill to make a little boy riding a tricycle terrifying. And then there is the photograph of Jack at the end. I haven't even tried to figure that out (I've been using all my brain cells for 2001).
A truly brilliant and scary film from Stanley Kubrick.

I can't praise this film long enough!

The Shining is, without doubt, one of Stanley Kubrick's undisputed masterpieces and a true classic in horror cinema. It is a film that, over the course of the years, has managed to scare the living hell out of its audiences (and still does). The film is an adaptation of Stepehen King's original novel, written in the late '70s, and although the film is not very loyal to the book, it still stands as a thing of its own.

Right from the beginning, as we contemplate the car going to the hotel from those stunning aerial shots, deeply inside us we know that something in the film, somehow, sometime is going to go wrong. As we obtain that severe warning, an almost inaudible voice gently whispers to us 'sit tight', a sense of unexpectedness invades us all, and it is that very same feeling that makes our hair stand on end throughout out the entire movie.

The plot is simple: Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) becomes the caretaker of the Overlook Hotel in up in the secluded mountains of Colorado. Jack, being a family man, takes his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd) to the hotel to keep him company throughout the long, isolated nights. During their stay, strange things occur when Jack's son Danny sees gruesome images powered by a force called 'the shining' and Jack is heavily affected by this. Along with writer's block and the demons of the hotel haunting him, Jack has a complete mental breakdown and the situation takes a sinister turn for the worse.

The film, unlike many horror-oriented films nowadays, doesn't only rely on stomach-churning and gory images (which it does contain, anyway) but on the incredibly scary music based on the works of Béla Bartók and on the excellent cinematography (the Steadicam is superbly used, giving us a sense of ever-following evil), as well. The terrifying mood and atmosphere of the film is carefully and masterfully woven by Kubrick, who clearly knows how to really make a horror movie.

Jack Nicholson's powerful performance as the mad father and husband is as over the top as it is brilliant. Shelley Duvall, who plays the worrying wife who tries to help her son, is also a stand out; she shows a kind of trembling fear in many scenes and is able to display weakness and vulnerability in a very convincing way. Undoubtedly, The Shining is full of memorable moments (the elevator scene or the 'Heeeeeere's Johnny' one-liner for instance) and, simply put, it's flawlessly brilliant.

Stanley Kubrick's direction is pure excellence, giving the whole film a cold and atmospheric look, thus creating an unbearable sense of paranoia and terror. There are moments of sheer brilliance and exquisite perfection in this film; the horrifying maze chase is a perfect example. Every single shot is masterfully created and there are some genuinely scary scenes which will make you sit on the edge of your seat.

The Shining is, in my opinion, a special landmark in horror cinema which will always be regarded as one of the scariest movies in film history. Since I saw it last year, when I was 13, I have rarely been able to have a bath in my bathtub.Just in case, ya know. Overall, The Shining is incomparably the scariest film I've ever seen in my whole life (and I can tell you I've seen a great deal of horror films).

It is an unforgettable, chilling, majestic and truly, profoundly scary film crafted by an eccentric genius who wants to show that the impossible can be done. The Shining is a sublime, hauntingly intriguing and endlessly watchable film that shows Kubrick at his best.
Wild Strawberries
This is an excellent film. Forcast portraits will follow your imagination, fantasy, your power. It will render you to your feet. J. N. will forever live in your imagination. Your imagination will forever live in this beautiful movie. The work of the cast is excellent. The day after you will feel groovy but take it easy, this is an intelligent move: "Wake up, Danny ... wake up ...." The young tender child, Daniel, reads in the mirror: REDRUM. The red used in the cinematography is one of the finest I have experienced. The score is high: the parents are divorced, and the mother is a tinkle: the father is a writer-Psycho (from here, the world of poetry and fiction): they brake loose in an abandoned castle in the Eastern section of Budapest. Look out for the final scenes when Danny outruns his daddy in the labyrinth. Icelandic, poetic, beautiful: this is a hit.
I waited for this?
After reading previews about this maybe being the scariest movie of all time, I was extremely disappointed at this laughable excuse for a horror movie. Jack really was a dull boy in this mis-hyped, miscast feature. Granted, King's novels don't always translate into good movies,but even his TV movies put this piece of trash to shame.
