“I really loved the shining, it wasn’t scary to me as 16 year old girl in 2013, but it’s a shame no body wants to watch it with me because they dislike old movies without jump scares.”
"People who like Stanley Kubrick’s version of The Shining clearly didn’t read the book. That movie was total trash."
“Even though The Shining was beautifully directed, it’s totally ridiculous and Nicholson’s acting is awful.”
“I think The Shining was an incredible movie. I loved how it scares you mentally and gets in your head. You have to truly understand it to realize that. It was very cleverly done.”
“I was along with the bandwagon of being absolutely in love with the film adaptation of The Shining until I read the book. After reading it, I realized that, although it is a classic, the movie is not nearly detailed enough. I would like to see a remake of it that is much more similar to the book. However, it would be difficult to find an actor that even compares to Jack Nicholson.”
“"The Shining" was boring. I know everybody says you’ve got to see it as a Kubrick film, not a King story, but it was still bad. At least the scene with the guy in the dog mask makes sense once you’ve read the book!"
“I hate Stanley Kubrick’s version of The Shining, but when I tell people this they tell me I’m not a real horror fan, and call me a purist because I still like the book.”

“I really hate the Shining movie. The book was fantastic and the movie was nothing like it. I wish they’d make a good remake.”
“I hate the Shining, the conjuring and paranormal activities. They all suck.”
