Customer Review

on 29 June 2001
I have seen many of the adaptations of Stephen King's books but "The Shining" takes the biscuit, and this biscuit is chocolate covered! I read the book first and it had me quivering in my pants, and the film displays the same eerie carisma thanks to the amazing Stanley Kubrick and the talents of Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall. The beautiful but somewhat freaky setting in the Rockies brings true character to this orignal horror film, bringing light to the awe inspiring description of Stephen King. The ending of the film is truely brilliant thanks to the almighty freakiness of Jack Nicholson's insane Jack Torrance. Best bit - bathroom scene. Worst bit - before they enter the hotel (goes on for ages). Basically the film is............out of this world.
