My favourite horror film, period. Some might think it's too slow, boring, not bloody enough, but I think this is the most epic, thought provoking and memorable horror film ever. And it contains several mesmerizing cinematic scenes. Also Jack Nicholson gives a chilling, powerfull performance.
I've seen this film maybe a dozen times and I'm not bored with it.
The blu ray edition is far superior to the dvd version. Picture quality is almost perfect. Some minor flaws, but it looks very very good. The soundtrack is a bit uneven, but still good. Some background noise. Still audio is far better than on dvd. highly recommended to the fans of the film.
This is the US version of the Stanley Kubrick's the Shining and it's coded region free.I've seen the european version about ten times before I got my first taste of the Us version and I haven't looked back. This is 25min longer version and it's just a little better. Nothing really essential is left out of european version, but this being one of my favourite films, I just like to have more.
