Aroview: Man, wife and child are assigned to caretaking a remote hotel for the winter. Formidable unease is created before Jack Nicholson completely loses his marbles, in this most creepy and indelible screen adaptation of Stephen King's work.
5 stars (Exceptional) The intensity this creates in incredible. It is proof that clever use of music and camerawork can create a much more frightening atmosphere than just gore. Also, The Making of the Shining is the best making-of ever.~dr.strangelove
5 stars (Exceptional) A film packed with incredible intensity and atmosphere without reliance on gore, its one of the few horror films I can watch and enjoy. Genuinely frightening with incredible acting, brilliant direction, it is also surprisingly intelligent and resonant.~Wizzums
