    I grew up watching this movie and I absolutely loved it. Of course, Pet Sematary turned me into a huge horror reader because I didn’t see the climax the first I ever watched the movie. Not a good thing for a teenaged horror fan who obviously loved the movie. Several years after that first book(the first adult novel I ever read), I read The Shining. Being a huge fan of Stephen King’s books AND movies, I can honestly say I like both versions of The Shining. Since this may be true of many Stephen King fans, I thought I’d give my thoughts on what I think make both movies great. Let’s start with Stanley Kubrick’s film. After reading–and loving–the book, I used to hate that this one wasn’t a lot more faithful! No longer the case! I’ve come to realize Kubrick simply wanted to tell his own story, using King’s novel as inspiration. Therefore, this one can be appreciated for its own story. And what an enjoyable and CHILLING story it is! While all of the performances are great, Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall are the real stand-outs, especially considering that Jack only seems to turn crazier(and crazier… and crazier), and more sinister as the story moves along. Still, you’ve also gotta give props to cute, little Danny Lloyd as Danny Torrance for his own amazing portrayal! And don’t forget about those terrific special effects that made the blood flowing from those elevator doors every bit as terrifying as that creepy woman in Room 237! That nightmarish climax is also unforgettable, as is the bizarre ending! Now, on to the miniseries: I am so sick of people talking about how much they hate this movie! I LOVE IT!!! This came out the same year I read the book, and when I heard about it, I felt like jumping for joy, especially after finding out Stephen King wrote the screenplay! I don’t think it was necessary to turn it into a miniseries. But, with Stephen King writing, I knew it would be MUCH more faithful to the book, which, to me, was awesome! After all, the whole time I was reading, I couldn’t help wishing Stanley Kubrick’s film had been a whole lot closer to the book. They also chose an excellent cast. Stephen Weber and Rebecca De Mornay were wonderful as Jack and Wendy Torrance! And, even though Danny Lloyd had originally been unbeatable as Danny Torrance, I liked Courtland Mead a lot. The haters whine like crazy about how “bad” the special effects are in this version. Seriously??? Except for the CGI hedge animals, I thought the special effects were amazing! 2 examples: When the firehose on the second floor chases Danny and then bleeds, it couldn’t have been any scarier! NIGHTMARE-INDUCING! And when Danny finally encounters the woman in Room 217, it’s easily one of the most horrendous moments of the entire movie! I was shivering the moment she was revealed in all her skin-crawling hideousness, something no horror movie has done to me since I was 11 years old!!! Or maybe 14, thanks to The Exorcist! And watch out for that climax! If you thought seeing Jack Nicholson running around with an ax was scary, the conclusion of the miniseries will keep you HORRIFIED!!! So there you go. All the things that make both these shockers well worth watching! Enjoy! REDRUM! REDRUM!
