    One of the best disturbing movies from Kubrick

    This is definitely one of my best experiences watching a movie. The way Stanley Kubrick builds suspense and how he positions the camera. The movie is amazing and dark and not quite like the book that Stephen King wrote at all. But, it's still one of Kubrick's memorable movies and as well for the rest of the cast.

    This movie is a classic. It’s long, but it’s scary, I don’t care who you are. If this movie didn’t scare you at some point in you’re life you don’t have a soul. And that may scare me more than the movie.

    Kubrick is a great filmmaker and the steelbook itself came in great shape. A good collector's item.

    Brilliant, creepy horror from Kubrick, with mesmerizing camera work and bizarre, arresting set pieces. Nicholson is a marvel to watch as his character evolves from a slightly odd but functioning adult to raving psychopath. Scatman Crothers is also memorable as the hotel's only other resident. Based on Stephen King's book, the film has Kubrick's slightly twisted genius all over it. Look for those wild tracking shots as Danny rides his tricycle indoors.

    Wanna get scared? Watch this one. It starts out kinda slow, but keep with it. See what goes on during the winter at a closed motel for the season. Don't let it turn you into a madman. See an ordinary man turn against his family for some odd reason.

    Great picture quality - nothing better than a much clearer version of crazy Jack Nicholson

    Probably the best adaptation from a Stephen King novel ever made! I say adaptation because it alters a lot from the novel, but in the best possible way Kubrick knew how! Great performances all around from such a small cast. Cinematography and score help set the tone for this eerie thriller. Recommended highly! Just don’t go in Room 237!

    I've seen the Shining dozens of times, but still get something different out of it, at each viewing. Frightening beyond belief, because it could really happen. Surreal, because of the inconsistent oddities that occur, which could be just in Jack's (the main character) imagination, or could actually be paranormal. Because of that, I see a lot of it metaphorically. Some things aren't actually happening the way that you see them, but rather symbolize what's going on, in part what the guy's head is filled with, and partly what the family is experiencing. The screenwriter did the story differently than Stephen King did. Stephen hated that the wife was portrayed as a wet dishrag, like a helpless noodle. So did I. However, I revert to what I said before--the methaphorical take on what's happened. When you consider all and then things still don't make sense, think of it metaphorically and you'll begin to piece things together. So, while the wife may have been much stronger in reality, her behavior was symptomatic of the marital relationship. I love Stephen King, but I can understand the artistic license that the screenwriter took. Mind-blowing, and frightening. You won't be able to walk around without looking over your shoulder for awhile after seeing it.

    I’ve never thought of The Shining as a horror/monster movie...more of a suspenseful/edge of ur seat kinda thriller to me. Great scenery and acting. I feel bad for Olive Oil most of the film-but the girl gets on my last nerve asking non stop questions (about everything) at the beginning.

    One of the scariest, creepiest films ever. Through minimalist shots Kubrick imbues a sense of desperate solitude. While Nicholson is riveting, the whole cast just freaking nails it. Love Scatman Crothers, the ol'charmer.

    This is one of Jack Nicholson's finest performances as he plays an average man who descends into madness when he takes on the role of caretaker in an out of the way hotel/resort. Once he becomes a madman, he goes so far as to hunt his wife and son, who, he has also taken to the hotele/resort. Who will survive? You will have to see the movie, if, you have never seen it before. The movie also has paranormal elements to it. I have seen this movie once before, and did not need to read any other online reviews of it. I knew what I was getting when I purchased it.

    This steelbook is a must have for all horror movie fanatics! It is a matte finish with awesome artwork inside and out. However, there is no digital code included. This movie is a classic favorite of mine and if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend!
