Movie Reviews

Empire - 10/10 by Ian NathanOstensibly a haunted house story, it manages to traverse a complex world of incipient madness, spectral murder and supernatural visions ...and also makes you jump.
Observer (UK) - 10/10 by Killian FoxIt's all in the build-up: Kubrick sets the scene for the horror with meticulous care.
Radio Times - 10/10 by Adrian TurnerThe technique is as overpowering as Nicholson's performance, which is both hammy and deeply disturbing.
Slant Magazine - 10/10 by Eric HendersonIt's the experience more so than the actual content of The Shining that radiates cold, anti-humanly indifferent terror.
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.
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.
The Ringer - 10/10 by Sean FennesseyIt is technically magnificent and eerily tense, like waiting for an ocean of blood to pour from an elevator shaft. The Krzysztof Penderecki score is deeply unnerving.
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.
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.
