Who doesnt love this film has to be nuts. Good classic one 9/10

Don't worry; you're not alone with that. 'The Shining' IS a classic ~ the book as well as the film. The only genre I watch is horror, specifically 80's horror films. Recent movies are rarely of any interest to me ~ I find many of them typical, boring, packed with horror cliches and stereotypes, and filled with CGI to draw attention away from the fact that the storylines are pathetic. It is a loss to anyone who can't appreciate films such as 'The Shining'. And this is coming from a fifteen year old girl.

That was AWESOME! I hated it as a kid, but this is a movie you should watch when your mind is actually more developed. 5/5 stars

Just finshed watching the movie after reading the book. Its a great movie but i won't lie and say that i wasn't disappointed with the ending, the book had a totally different ending! I definitly loved the book more than the movie but it was still such an amazing movie with such a fabulous cast especially Jack Nicholson.

Wow,this movie is amazing, the storyline was great and so was the performance of Jack Nicholson. The way Jack Nicholson played his character with so much intensity was a treat to watch, his face expressions were particularly amazing. A very intense pyshocological thriller, and deserve more than just full marks. 10/10

I read the book before the movie came out and was fired up to go see it when it did. Although the movie was very good (it IS Kubrick after all) in and of itself but it certainly did not follow the book. I was disappointed to a degree. Where are the hedge animals? That was my favorite part of the book and was let down when that scene was completely omitted from the movie. And the maze? What maze? Jack didn't freeze to death and Holleran doesn't die in the book. He actually saves Danny and Wendy. But I guess you could say that Tony was the REAL hero. I agree with you, loviiekawaii!

I think it goes without saying that this is indeed theeeeee very best horror movie of alllll time. And the best part about it is that there's only one on scream murder or "redrum". The music complements this movie like no other, it's chilling and suspenseful. Great acting and awesome story. 10/10

Jack Nicholson's expression on its own in this movie is quite haunting itself..

As said in other comments this is a truly brilliant film , it is a shame that it didn't follow the book though as now it would be too difficult to make Dr Sleep into a movie and it would of made a great sequel . but a scarily good 4 out of 5 stars for this iconic piece of cinema , superbly acted and creepy as hell

Best.Horror.movie.ever.I can watch it over and over again.

The Shining is not a typical hack-them-up slasher film nor it is a simply a ghost/haunted place movie - it is a combination of both in a roundabout way. It's a must see for film connoisseurs and horror movie buffs. The movie is so well acted out by the cast. Jack Nicholson plays Jack Torrance so well that you almost believe that he is that psycho in real life - he's so convincing in this movie! Shelly Duvall was outstanding - I felt like she captured the emotions and torment of Wendy perfectly. The movie has spawned satires and jokes since it first grazed the silver screen in 1980 due to it's popularity. But the movie is not a comedy - no joking matter - it is a seriously dramatic twisted horror film that is not easily forgotten. 10/10

This is a very good film. It is classic Kubrick, but it does not follow the book very well (sometimes not at all): From the opening scene in Ullman's office to the ending it was completely altered to fit the director's vision (not SK's novel and description) of what it should be. I am still waiting for this one to be done right; a remake? Jack Nicholson is superb it this film so watching it for his performance alone is worth it. Enjoy! Cheers. :)

I agree with cyberdag that this is possibly the best King book that has been made into a film, aside from Carrie. Kubrick is a genius with this film. Everything is timed well and no one scene seems unnecessary or drawn out (which is a miracle in a 2+ hour film) and as in many other films Jack steals the show with his slow descent into madness. I've seen this film many times before but it never gets old. It's a classic!

Stephen King has written some great stories and while I like to read him, I've found that not many of his books have translated well to film. This one has, mainly because of Kubrick's genius as a film maker. He's managed to capture the feel of the novel better than many films based on King's works. I've found his short stories and novellas tend to translate better, but, especially considering the length of the novel this is based on, it's quite successful. Read the book if you haven't already - it's bloody terrifying!
