  • Critics Consensus: Though it deviates from Stephen King's novel, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining is a chilling, often baroque journey into madness -- exemplified by an unforgettable turn from Jack Nicholson

  • But there is a deleted scene from "The Shining" (1980) that casts Wendy's reliability in a curious light. Near the end of the film, on a frigid night, Jack chases Danny into the labyrinth on the hotel grounds.

  • Read the Empire review of The Shining. Find out everything you need to know about the film from the world's biggest movie destination.

  • T he rerelease of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining is another chance to savour, first of all, those magnificent interior sets. Instead of the cramped darkness and panicky quick editing of the standard-issue scary movie, Kubrick gives us the eerie, colossal, brilliantly lit spaces of the Overlook Hotel (created in Elstree Studios, Hertfordshire), shot with amplitude and calm.

  • Written by: Wayne C. Rogers. After thirty-six years, I’m finally reviewing Stephen King’s The Shining. If the readers are confused by the price of the book, I purchased one of the hardcover editions published in the nineties with an exceptional dust jacket by Peter Kruzan, Craig De Camp, and Thomas Holdorf.

  • " The Shining is one of the best horror movies of all time. In Shining isn't much gore like in new horror movies, but with good music, camerawork and scary twins this movies still scares me (in 2016).
