The Shining
Come and play with us, Danny. Forever... and ever... and ever.

"The Shining," Stanley Kubrick's spellbinding foray into the realm of the horror film, is at its most gloriously diabolical as Jack and Wendy Torrance take the grand tour. They are being shown through the Overlook, the cavernous, isolated hotel where they and their young son Danny will be spending the winter as caretakers, supposedly without any company. Jack pronounces the place "Cozy!" But still everything in the Overlook signals trouble, trouble that unfolds at a leisurely pace almost as playful as it is hair-raising. In the hotel, the Torrances find dozens of empty rooms, ominously huge windows, knives all over the kitchen and a maze on the front lawn. As it later turns out, there are ghosts and more ghosts, and one of the elevators is full of blood. The Overlook would undoubtedly amount to one of the screen's scarier haunted houses even without its special feature, a feature that gives "The Shining" its richness and its unexpected intimacy. The Overlook is something far more fearsome than a haunted house--it's a home.

Meticulously detailed and never less than fascinating, "The Shining" may be the first movie that ever made its audience jump with a title that simply says "Tuesday." (J. Maslin, New York Times)
