  1. Adam GR's rating of the film The Shining

    A grand affair! It makes me feel that snowswept coziness of imprisonment in a home with your loved ones.

  2. AJ's rating of the film The Shining

    One of the most important aspects of The Shining is the set design, considering that the story is about a haunted hotel. The hedge maze, the blood-spilling elevator, and the winding hallways through which Danny rides his tricycle are all iconic, but I think one of the most important rooms is the ballroom, which gets a complete makeover the second time Jack enters it, to make it look like it takes place in the 1920's.

  3. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Shining

    Almost as nasty as 'A Clockwork Orange', but so much more fun since it is prevented from being nearly as portentous due to being based on a Stephen King novel despite the fact that it really wants to pretend that it isn't. It's sheer sensory enjoyment to glide along with the camera through the Overlook's labyrinthine spaces. For me, the experience is a touch too cerebral to be nerve-shredding, but that's nae bother.

  4. BenNash's rating of the film The Shining

    Still one of the greatest horror movies. Every halloween I give it a watch and every time I still jump at THAT scene.

  12. Bob's rating of the film The Shining

    Masterful camerawork and music played by echoes creates an eerie atmosphere that is worth to go back to. Ironically, Jack Nicholson's power house performance - along with rushed and unnatural descent into madness - brings humor into the horror and turns this into dark comedy. Still, one of the finest accomplishments of its genre that manages to turn its flaws into iconic cinema moments.

  15. FISCHER's rating of the film The Shining

    On se souvient que la vision du film lors de sa sortie nationale en octobre 1980, nous avait laissés une impression mitigée, même si cet étonnant condensé de fantastique, de folie, de mystère et d'horreur, sous la patte géniale de Stanley Kubrick, nous paraissait plutôt convaincant, sous l'inspiration indirecte d'un Stephen King déchaîné. 25 ans plus tard, un nouveau visionnage et..... www.cinefiches.com

  16. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Shining

    A typically sure-handed, if ascetic, treatment from this director which conveys the spatial unease created by certain architecture better than almost any other production. The covert references and subtext may well be true but whatever they are, they're subtly hidden beneath the austere Grand Guignol surface with nearly everything here on top-form.

  18. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Shining

  19. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film The Shining

    Kubricks stunning venture into horror creates no less than a masterpiece in the genre. A multiple character study about isolation and madness where its aftermaths rely ambiguous throughout. Atmospheric, sinister, and terrifying.
