The Shining Review

Jalaj Mani
  • 3.5/5

This is possibly one of the scariest horror films ever made. Eerily scary, THE SHINING is a masterpiece of terror. Jack Nicholson and Shelly DuVall are good as the happily married couple who are torn apart when they and their son, Danny (Danny Floyd) take on the job as caretakers of the Overlook Hotel.

When I judge a movie, I break them down into small niche categories, and this one falls in Psychological Horror. Brilliantly made. Apart from few other films, it ranks among the best horror movie of all time. The film did not really scare me, but it petrified me. Well done, Stephen King!
