this movie SUCKED
These writings write about the end of the plot so don't read it if you haven't seen this rubbish.

I found this rubbish film in the horror section which made me think it would be a horror. If I owned a video store I'd put it in the BORING section. This film is so rubbish it will make you feel like you have lost your socks.

This film contains endless shots of people driving as if that was scary. Well I drive to work and back (and sometimes to the store or to visit my cats) almost every day and trust me it's not scary. It even starts with 20 minutes of some people driving. Even the little kid does it too. Round and round he goes and he never stops. What's so scary about watching a little kid riding a bicycle for an hour? I think NOTHING and if you watch it you will not think so too.

The family in the car arrive at a big castle and they are given a tour just walking around endlessly looking at kitchens. Then the man walks around a for an hour and tries to kill his family for no reason. That's all that happens and as you can see it's rubbish.
Great fun watch
"The Shining" is a British/American movie from 1980, so this one is already over 35 years old and it is among the later career efforts by writer and director Stanley Kubrick, even if he lived on for a long time afterward still. It is based on a novel by Stephen King who was only in his early 30s when this came out. There exist quite a lot versions of this film here and the one I watched is the one common here in Germany I believe, the one running for slightly under 115 minutes, one of the shorter I guess. Today the movie is considered among the modern (can you still call it that?) horror film classics, but there are a few factors that make it an unusual horror film I think. First of all, it is not too common to see really big-name actors in this genre, but lead actor Jack Nicholson was one of the biggest and most lauded performers in the industry back then. Also huge filmmaker legends like Kubrick weren't normally associated with the horror genre. I guess the exception proves the rule with this one.

The Razzie recognition is a bad joke obviously. Kubrick's direction was really strong and Duvall did a good job too. Yes her portrayal is reduced to fear and screaming, but it is not her fault that the character is very one-dimensional and lacks in the loving-wife and loving-mother department. Besides, it is quite a challenge to star next to Nicholson, especially back then, and she did not disappoint. A good portrayal. Nicholson of course can let it all out here, like a decade later with the Joker and he is immense fun to watch. The film itself delivers in all departments I think. The soundtrack is good and the visual side is a triumph. The sets in the hotel are a joy to look at and the snow outside is even better. Back to the story, I think the film had several interesting plot twists like the Black cop who seems to be a savior, but eventually only makes the bad guy come off as stronger, an approach used in many later films too (Collateral for example). I still wouldn't call Crothers awards-worthy.

I like horror films that are about an invisible danger and even if several creepy aspects are visible and clearly present, I believe that the invisible power that controls Torrance is one of the film's highlights. And the supporting characters are pretty good too, for example the barkeeper or Grady or the twins. Many many metaphors and symbolisms in here, like the old/young lady in the shower. It is difficult to find something wrong with this one, but if I dig deep enough then maybe I'd say it is not as good on rewatch as on first watch. And that the title isn't perfect because the part about shining is never as crucial as you'd imagine because the son really is never in the center of the film. It's all about Nicholson's character and even a generic title like "Torrance" could have been more accurate, but maybe not as memorable. This is probably the Kubrick film that is more for the masses than the others, or most of the others. If you are among the very few who haven't seen it yet, it is high time to change it. My favorite Kubrick and favorite film from 1980, probably not my favorite film based on a Stephen King work though as Darabont's stiff is just too good. Oh yeah final note: I haven't read any of King's novels, so I cannot compare film and book, but let me assure you once more that this is a tremendous movie. Highly recommended.
Amazing achievement in filmmaking and the art of terror.
Chilling, majestic piece of cinematic fright, this film combines all the great elements of an intellectual thriller, with the grand vision of a director who has the instinctual capacity to pace a moody horror flick within the realm of his filmmaking genius that includes an eye for the original shot, an ice-cold soundtrack and an overall sense of dehumanization. This movie cuts through all the typical horror movies like a red-poker through a human eye, as it allows the viewer to not only feel the violence and psychosis of its protagonist, but appreciate the seed from which the derangement stems. One of the scariest things for people to face is the unknown and this film presents its plotting with just that thought in mind. The setting is perfect, in a desolate winter hideaway. The quietness of the moment is a character in itself, as the fermenting aggressor in Jack Torrance's mind wallows in this idle time, and breeds the devil's new playground. I always felt like the presence of evil was dormant in all of our minds, with only the circumstances of the moment, and the reasons given therein, needed to wake its violent ass and pounce over its unsuspecting victims. This film is a perfect example of this very thought.

And it is within this film's subtle touches of the canvas, the clackity-clacks of the young boy's big wheel riding along the empty hallways of the hotel, the labyrinthian garden representing the mind's fine line between sane and insane, Kubrick's purposely transfixed editing inconsistencies, continuity errors and set mis-arrangements, that we discover a world guided by the righteous and tangible, but coaxed away by the powerful and unknown. I have never read the book upon which the film is based, but without that as a comparison point, I am proud to say that this is one of the most terrifying films that I have ever seen. I thought that the runtime of the film could've been cut by a little bit, but then again, I am not one of the most acclaimed directors in the history of film, so maybe I should keep my two-cent criticisms over a superb film, to myself. All in all, this movie captures your attention with its grand form and vision, ropes you in with some terror and eccentric direction, and ties you down and stabs you in the heart with its cold-eyed view of the man's mind gone overboard, creepy atmosphere and the loss of humanity.

Rating: 9/10
One of The Best Horror Films Ever
I was kinda surprised when I heard that Stanly Kubrick had made a horror film and that it was The Shinning was a big shock to me. Kubrick is one of my favorite film makers and after I saw 2001 and Clockwork Orange I had to see his other movies. I had heard a lot about this movie and kinda a lot of the scenes but I really didn't remember this movie that well. So I rent the movie and watch it as soon as I got home and loved it. This is one of my favorite movies even though I really do not like the horror movies. Jack Nicholson give his best performance(have not seen One Flow Over The Cuckoo's Nest).Sherry Duvall and Danny Loyd do better good but I didn't like their performances. The thing I didn't like about this movie is that the shinning in the story is wear the Danny can do a lot of telepathic things with his head, which I thought was kinda random. Even though that the things I didn't like about this movie really bug me I still love this movie. This is a great movie if like to see another Stanley Kubrick film or just want to watch the one of the best horror films out there.
Rarely have I seen a masterpiece of literature turned into a pile of horse manure...


1.JACK NICHOLSON= Hugely miscast.The descent into madness is supposed to be gradual. This Jack looked like he was already going to murder his family.

2.SCRIPT=Although the names and basic plot are in place(guy goes loopey in hotel) a lot of the scenes in the film I could not remember reading(eg two girls,blood in lift). Why did Kubrick drift from the book? Mostly, he didn't drift in A Clockwork Orange, so why here?Plus, the characters were one dimensional cardboard cut-outs, so how could I pity them?

3.SHELLY DUVALL=Deserved to die, she was that annoying. The Wendy in the book is strong willed and not a pathetic loser. The reason they went to the Overlook was to save their marriage.

4.ENDING=Jack did not freeze to death in the snow. In the book, it showed that Jack was still human enough to recognise his love for his son. The ''frozen'' scene here left me with a feeling of disgust that the pinnicale of the book had been replaced for a cheap shock.

A legendary horror film, from a legendary director
'The Shining' is one of the finest horror films ever made, and one of Stanley Kubrick's most amazing achievements (however there was many more). It was the only horror movie Kubrick ever made, which may be positive on our part; because he was always motivated by a style that seldom had seen reproduction from other filmmakers, this allows one to look at the product from a neutral perspective, canceling out all standard comparisons to other horror movies, especially those that were also tailored from Stephen King novels (although King himself thinks Kubrick's adaptation of his novel was butchery, for some reason?). To say that the picture is one of a kind is accurate, but one in a million feels even more appropriate. It is in that small handful of the scariest horror movies ever made, and it distances itself from the typical 'slasher' genre, which is now very tiring, because no remake in made in the 2000s can beat out the original 1970s/1980s version.

Another equally amazing thing is, after all this time, is how well Kubrick used his actors, music and visuals to underscore the themes of the story itself. The technical details are prototypes in themselves, helping the story build massive tension; the long hallway shots, the eerie musical score, the use of words written backwards, the implication of a blizzard, and the tall, wide staircases establish a sense of uncertainty for both the audience and the individuals in the movie. Each of the characteristics are also evidence of the haunting craftsmanship—the photography of the hotel, for instance, creates a portrait of breathtaking beauty long before the breakdown of the characters' lucidity chars our attraction to it.

The performances are just brilliant, but with the exception of Shelly Duvaull, while her performance as a caring mother is good, her mousy screams get very overacted, and tedious after a while. But Jack Nicholson was AMAZING in this film, his performance was strong, believable and terrifying. It is easily his best performance to date!

Overall, everything in The Shinning works brilliantly. Full of brilliant psychological scares and flawless imagery.

It's not a horror movie, it's a movie about a crazy guy
I search the top 10 horror movie on IMDb, and found out this is one of them. So I watched it, but then I realized the movie it's not horror, just made me feel like that's disgusting. First, Jake saw a naked "ghost" and he was so happy. that's not right, he is married. and how come he just acted like nothing happened. He said he will do anything for the son, but he just let those "ghost" control him and hurt his son and wife. And then the rest of the movie just a crazy guy how to kill his wife. He is just crazy people, I don't understand why people think the movie is great. Because Jake is crazy? I think watch this movie is a awful experience.
A Stunning Kubrickian Horror.
He should have made more of them.

Nearly 40 years since it's release The Shining, irregardless of Stephen King's opinion, remains one of the most effective and most atmospheric horror films of all-time. Starring Jack Nicholson in the role of the snowbound (and psychotic) Jack Torrance, who along with his wife Wendy and their young son Danny, are all in for an extended and most eventful stay, at the secluded Overlook Hotel.

The Shining is a grand expose of lurid atmosphere and chilling suspense, topped-off with a bit of telepathic interplay and an all-encompassing sense of complete and utter isolation, all of which will eventually cause the Torrance's much misery. Their torments, both real and imagined, run the gamut from unsettling feelings doubt, to Jack's full-blown fits of ax-wielding, psychopathic homicidal mania. The Overlook Hotel is a character in itself and it's perversely haunted halls provide a steady stream of spectral incursions, in the form of various ghostly apparitions, such as, murder victims of the past, nubile shape-shifters, "lewd spirits" reliving past acts of fornication and an affable bar-tender named Loyd. These haunting's eventually culminate in the form of a grand ball, with many elegant ghostly guests in attendance, all clad in stylish fashions from the 1920's. If all that doesn't quite quench your thirst for spirits OR turn you off completely to The Overlook Hotel, there are still it's "instant blood-baths" to drink in, which inexplicably keep recurring time and again (which is unquestionably one of the movies signature visuals). Beware it's halls of blood! And as unwholesome as it is, The Overlook Hotel provides Us, it's audience, with a great variety of off-color entertainment and sickly situations of pure perversity - and this all happens under one roof!

It would seem that Kubricks main goal with this film was, undoubtedly, to create and sustain a certain type atmosphere, which he slowly builds up, starting with the ever-present sense of isolation that's naturally created by the deep seclusion of The Overlook, that combined with the near constant howling of the cold merciless wind. But that's just the beginning, when things are going well, in time this desolate sense of isolation begins to impinge upon the minds of those within, which causes a pervasive sense of unease and uncertainty. It must be said that Jack Torrance suffers the worst of it and the film essentially turns into a study of a sick man, whose loosing his grip on reality, as his mind slowly begins to unravel and neurosis creeps in. In other words Jack's sick and getting sicker by the day, "out to sea", adrift in a malaise of dire despondency and despair. And it's then that he begins to separate himself from the rest of the world, starting with his family. But Jack's plight only gets worse. Now with his sanity waning by hour, his psychosis begins to take over and his inner-demons begin to stir, which first manifest themselves in the form of murder-filled nightmares, which prompt screams and pangs of terror (and a string of drool). To which he correctly diagnoses the situation AND HIMSELF by saying >>>I must be losing my mind<<<.

Finding himself in an ever-deepening downward spiral of delusion, Jack begins to see things that aren't, physically, there (as does his mentally gifted son, who exhibits a heightened level of sensory perception, making him predisposed to the spiritual presence that haunts the Overlook Hotel), he finds temporary reprieve in the form of few glasses of imaginary Jack Daniels on the rocks. However his moment of serenity is all too brief, as Jack's party is broken up by his wives shrill peels of hysteria, "There's a crazy lady living in the hotel with us!", which soon gives way to one of best haunting's in the movie. Just what IS in room 237. Then if things weren't already bad enough, there's the sinister influence of one Mr. Delbert Grady (and it's here that Jack finds himself - talking to a total stranger - in a public bathroom.....) who ultimately proves to be the decisive encounter, the tipping-point; his slick tongue, bated with sick suggestion, easily overpowers Jack's fragile psyche, which ultimately sets him on a course for which there is no return. Now, the horror of the film is no longer limited to the netherworld AND AN AX violently crashes into reality, which erupts into an electrifying scene of unhinged homicidal mania! But as a rule of this film, most of the perversity which occurs in this elegant masterpiece of horror are implied, rather then manifested.

Once it's all said and done The Shining is a most unusual entry in the horror film genre and it's status is of a distinctly one-of-a-kind nature and it remains a monument to Kubrick's genius and adaptability of working within multiple genres. Yes, it is a bit of slow starter, but the films entrancing and multi-faceted nature will soon capture your imagination, as it plunges you headlong into it's sinister web of despair and ever-present frigid biting cold. This is a movie you'll remember, as it tends to leave behind a sickly ethereal residue, that lingers on your subconscious long afterwards. From a musical stand-point The Shining is a richly rewarding aural experience, one that oozes of atmospheric intrigue and other-worldly atonality's, that roils in a sea of churning discordance and waves of percussive fury - in essence the soundtrack of this film is a veritable dark well of musical malevolence. What I appreciate the most however, is how Kubrick was able to create such a richly immersive and foreboding realm of nightmares, within the labyrinthine corridors of the Overlook Hotel. This film -will captivate- those who give it a chance, as it is a singularly unique collection of sights and sounds... which has it's own way of creeping underneath your skin and needling your nerves, but in the most pleasurable of ways - I promise.

Conclusion: Almost perfect.
No one must say anything bad about this film.....why?
Here we have Stanley Kubricks horror "gem" and it seems like a tradition that everyone has to bow down in front of their televisions when its on!

Mr stanley 150 takes for a scene Kubrick really made one or two bad choices here.

Jack Nicholson hams it up and over does things to a dodgy perfection....why cast him? there is no surprise when he goes mad in fact it was more like when he goes mad not if!

Shelley Duvall is just in a constant state of hysteria and panic not much more to say about her character as thats all she gives us to judge.

The boy Danny played by Danny Lloyd does a fine job and puts the other two herberts i have just mentioned to shame.

Now let's move on to Phillip Stone and Joe Turkel as Grady and Lloyd the bartender. Their performances although small were top notch and chilling, the looks they give and way they deliver their lines really makes you believe they are evil.

Not much to say about Scatman Crothers,his character sets the scene a bit, then after a epic trek back to the hotel is killed the moment he walks in....hmmm did't see that coming.

Over blown and a over weight film which considering how long it had in the making still has the same amount of continuity gaffs as any other film. Last time i watched in the first five minutes i spotted the shadow of the helicopter,Danny eats through nearly all his sandwich in a second and the massive hedge maze that can not be seen from the air.

Much better films to be had out there that where made on a lot less.
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.
