Does this film really need a review? I mean, it's The Shining! Everyone has seen it, right? And if you haven't whats wrong, why aren't you running to the video store to buy it? It's certainly Stephen King's best adaptation, but I think it is not because of King himself (who hated this version, and was determined to re-make a more true-to-book version several years after this one). The real ... read more

Kubrick at his finest, Nicholson at his finest. What else could anyone want? This version of Stephen King's book has almost nothing to do with it. And that's one of the best things about the film.

In 1997 King did a remake with many more elements of the book, and the film is a sleeper. I had to watch it like four different times to get through it.

Anyway, I'm not here... read more

A tempo que eu tentava assistir The Shining, porém, por diversos motivos, nunca consegui. Até que decidi apelar para a pirataria e baixar da internet, maravilhosa internet.
Quando um filme carrega a fama de 'clássico' nas costas, tenho que admitir que eu sempre assisto com um pé atras, principalmente depois da minha frustrada experiência com A clockwork orange e voalá! The shining é ... read more

My Favorite Films (15 movies items)

"The Shining (1980) Director: Stanley Kubrick Writers: Stanley Kubrick, Stephen King (novel) Stars: Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd I feel like this isn't much of a horror film as it is just a genuinely disturbing film. The movie itself feels like something evil, like it knows something you don't, and that's what I love about it. Kubrick is a genius and so is King, so naturally this is a fantastically terrifying experience."

“Reconciliated with Kubrick. Terror movies has evolved in such way that Shining looks ok for me. Isolation and fatalism, psycho and evil; the two forces combine well, here. Nicholson presneted at least half of his tics.” read more

"21/5/17 Having the opportunity to see this on the big screen is like watching it for the first time. Stanley Kurbrick's now legendary horror is still as tense and as gripping, yet seen in a cinema, we get to see just how good Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall are and that music gets under your skin. One of the finest examples of how to make a truly terrifying horror film."
