Rated 4 out of 5

“The Shining” is a psychological horror movie directed by Stanley Kubrick, released in 1980. The film is based on Stephen King’s 1977 novel of the same name and stars Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, and Danny Lloyd.

The story follows Jack Torrance (Nicholson), a struggling writer who takes a job as the off-season caretaker of the isolated Overlook Hotel in the Colorado Rockies. Jack brings his wife Wendy (Duvall) and young son Danny (Lloyd) to stay with him at the hotel. As the winter progresses and the hotel becomes snowed in, Jack’s mental state deteriorates and he becomes increasingly violent and unstable. Danny, who possesses psychic abilities known as “the shining,” is able to see horrific visions of the hotel’s past and present.

“The Shining” has become a classic of the horror genre, praised for its unsettling atmosphere, memorable performances, and iconic scenes such as the twins in the hallway and the “Here’s Johnny!” scene. However, the film deviates significantly from King’s novel and has been criticized by the author for its changes. Nevertheless, “The Shining” has remained a beloved and influential film, inspiring countless imitations and homages in the decades since its release.
