    The horror aspect has been severly muted by age and familiarity, but the movie is still impressive as a study of a character's slow decent into madness and as a technical achievment from its maestro director Stanley Kubrick. 7 years ago

    Pretty scary and atmospherical. Loved Nicholson's acting and the hotel... the great floors and corridors and the maze outside just added to the creepy feeling... and one of the major appeals of the movie is probably the fact that you're never quite sure what the heck is actually going on. Cool! 5 years 7 months ago

    Stanley Kubrick has to be one of my favorite directors ever just for how awesome he makes every single shot look. It's like every scene is a freakin' piece of art. The story is amazing too, if not confusing at the end ;). But this roller-coaster ride of a story, mixed with Stanley Kubrick's directing skill, and Jack Nicholson's phenomenal acting makes this one of the best movies I've ever had the pleasure of watching. Didn't like the nudity though. 3 years 10 months ago
