Movie Reviews

Total Film - 10/10 by Jamie GrahamThe Shining buzzes madness and malevolence from every frame.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) - 10/10 by Ken HankeRegardless of how you read the film, there's little denying that it's a masterful work.
Variety - 10/10 by Variety StaffWith everything to work with, director Stanley Kubrick has teamed with jumpy Jack Nicholson to destroy all that was so terrifying about Stephen King's bestseller.
People Magazine - 10/10 by Ralph NovakThe Shining is like a near-miss auto accident: You don't know how scared you really were until you start shaking a few hours later.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger EbertBut there is no way, within the film, to be sure with any confidence exactly what happens, or precisely how, or really why. Kubrick delivers this uncertainty in a film where the actors themselves vibrate with unease.
Christian Science Monitor - 10/10 by David SterrittWhat a picture that could have been: a modern ghost yarn with an excellent cast, directed by master technician Stanley Kubrick. Yet the result is a bore, sometimes gratuitously violent, and lacking logic as well as chills.
Guardian - 10/10 by Derek MalcolmIf The Shining isn't trivial, it certainly encourages one to think that it is. But, perhaps, even that's a change for the better. Generally, it's the other way around.
ESplatter - 10/10 by Steve BiodrowskiThe result may not quite match Kubrick's greatest films, but it is enthralling and hypnotic - a brilliant, ambitious attempt to shoot a horror film without the Gothic trappings.
Radio Times - 10/10 by Adrian TurnerThe technique is as overpowering as Nicholson's performance, which is both hammy and deeply disturbing.
Observer (UK) - 10/10 by Killian FoxIt's all in the build-up: Kubrick sets the scene for the horror with meticulous care.
