Shining, The (1980) 

4/4 stars

The Shining is one of the most complete and atmospheric horror films ever made, and ranks as one of the top adaptations of a King novel, as well. Kubrick creates an otherworldy setting of ghosts and psychosis that is more unsettling than outright terrifying (though the film knows how to create intense scares, when needed.) Jack Nicholson gives one of his career performances as the insane Jack Torrance, and the film just bleeds visual genius. The result is a movie that relies more on tension and plot-based fear, than on cheap "jump" scares and sight gags.
