The Shining

3.5/5 stars

This is one of those classics where everyone knows the story, whether or not they’ve seen the movie — a man and his wife and child move into a secluded hotel as caretakers for the winter. The isolation starts to get to the man (that, and the “ghosts” in the hotel), and he starts to go insane.

It was hard to forget The Simpsons take on this while watching, so I had some ideas what was coming. Having said that, this was one of those great suspense-building movies that would have been sooo much better on a big screen (and without my husband asking if I wanted some pudding just as we got to one of the most suspenseful scenes…)
