One of the only horror movies over 2 hours long that feels like it needs to be that length... It Chapter 2, take notes.

Do I really need to explain how perfect this film is. While at first viewing it may be difficult to digest the film’s subliminal storytelling as there is clearly more than meets the eye. It took a few viewings for me to truly recognize that the Shining is a perfect film. It does not engage in any typical horror cliches. Kubrick conquered just about every genre including horror with this. Nicholson’s performance alone makes this an instant classic. Obviously you have to go see this movie.
