Shining, The (1980) 
The best horror out there
4/4 stars

The master Kubrick himself taking on Stephen King’s novel, but instead of making it a direct adaptation, Kubrick made the story his own, resulting in not only a superior work of fiction, but also the best horror film of all time. Deeply layered, open to thousands of interpretations, filled with subtleties that hint at the profounder thematics, carefully written, greatly performed and expertly directed, not to mention quite disturbing. The more you look into the film the more sinister it gets, with so many undertones and possibilities that there’s even a film about theories of this move, Room 237. The Overlook Hotel is a character in and out of itself, the most insidious of antagonists that could turn a regular man into a monster. With so many unforgettable images and moments and a narrative that slowly unfolds but entraps the audience into its darkest corners, a mysterious setting, an atmosphere that evokes the unnatural, and a treasure of carefully planned details worth of analysis, Kubrick’s effort on horror proved to be what I consider the very best of all time.
