The Shining Movie Review

Lily Hanson, Staff

After being told by multiple people that I must watch The Shining, and seeing as the movie got 84% rotten tomatoes along with a 4 out of 5 star rating, I figured it was finally time to see a classic that came out nearly 40 years ago. 

Let me start off by saying I am not a horror movie type of person, I would much prefer a nice romantic comedy, but seeing as Halloween is coming up I figured it was appropriate to watch a horror movie.

The shining was a great movie with a great storyline. Although parts were a little hard to follow, the story had great cinematography as well as incredible audio. The shining is not a jump-scare but I definitely had a couple screams. This movie is not PG as it has nudity and graphic pictures as well as strong language so if you are with young children, or are a childish person it might be best to skip this one.

Overall I would say this is a great classic movie and I would highly recommend watching it at least once in your life. The Shining is definitely a great horror movie to cross off the bucket list.
