About the Film
All work and no play makes Academy Award-winner Jack Nicholson ("As Good As It Gets," "Batman"), the caretaker of an isolated resort, go way off the deep end, terrorizing his young son and wife Shelley Duvall ("Roxanne"). Master filmmaker Stanley Kubrick's ("Full Metal Jacket," "2001: A Space Odyssey") visually haunting chiller, based on the bestseller by master-of-suspense Stephen King ("The Stand," "Carrie," "The Shawshank Redemption"), is an undeniable contemporary classic. Newsweek Magazine calls this "the first epic horror film," full of indelible images, and a signature role for Nicholson whose character was recently selected by AFI for its' 50 Greatest Villains.
a brill classic
an awsome film =)
Whats wrong with you people
This is without a doubt one of the greatest films ever made. If you mention the film to anyone you will be met with "HERE'S JONNY" within seconds. One of the most famous movie quotes of all time, sure it might be a bit dated and is no Batman but lets face it for quality acting and brown trouser time it can't be beat!!!!
Jack Nicholson is one of the best actors of all time and in the shining he does not disappoint! I highly recommend this movie to all horror and thriller fans. It really is fantastic!!! Definately a 5 star film! x
