The Shining

Posted by pantherion Labels: , , ,

Today I would like to tell you about the best (and scariest) horror movie ever made. I know it's pretty tricky to say that, since many people won't agree, putting in the first position the likes of The Exorcist or The Blair Witch Project, but for me there is only one winner – The Shining. Based on Stephen King's novel, directed by the genial Stanley Kubrick and starring the always awesome Jack Nicholson – such mixtures don't always work, or at least they may not meet one's expectations. This is not the case here. Everyone is on top of their game and they have created a chilling masterpiece. Some people say that the film's plot is not close enough to the book, but I can't agree. Those changes made by Kubrick only make the whole enterprise more cinematic. A true work of genius.

    What can we add apart from our agreement?

    King - Kubrick - Nicholson - the perfect recipe for the ultimate horror film, one that still hasn't been surpassed.
