The Shining is the standard to which horror movies are judged. Kubrick creates a tense setting and Nicholson is terrifying to watch. Perfect
genre Horror | Thriller
synopsis The Shining is a Stanley Kubrick adaptation of Steven King’s horror novel of the same name. The film takes the viewer into a remote hotel where a Jack Torrance and his wife and son must live in for the winter. One of the scariest films of all times mixes up reality and makes isolation a psychological nightmare.
