    It was spoofed on The Simpsons, in a Treehouse episode. It is a horror movie.

    I have always characterized The Shining as the greatest terror movie of all time, based on the distinctions:
     • “fear” is justified, because you really are in danger
     • “phobia” is something with no rational basis
     • “horror” is basically guts being spilled
     • “terror” is all about anticipation; no actual gore need ensue
    You can make good movies (well, movies, anyway) based on any of these themes, but they aren’t quite the same.
    There’s one scene in The Shining where there’s just a black screen with the word “Wednesday” on it, and by then your sphincter is headed for your throat.
    Stanley Kubrick was a genius. And he never repeated himself.

    As somewhat of an age, I wonder if teen and 20-somethings get our old Horror classics: Psycho; Deliverance; Cuckoo’s Nest; Night of the Living Dead to name a few. Not the same colourful effects but pretty scary, just the same. CGI is good, but the good old days weren’t bad either. Carrie 1.0 was excellent. Haven’t seen 2.0. They all scared the bejesus out of me

    The new horror movies are mostly special effects with ‘homages’ (rip off) from the old ones. Which means that when the kids see the old ones they have this feeling of ‘déja vu’ and just ask where is the blood.

    The old ones involves acting. The new ones, as cabalonrye said, are all special effects.

    Read the book. Much scarier than the movie.

    Exactly. Some of the best horror movies are the ones which left certain things to your imagination.

    The Shining was a great movie. As good as the book. There isn’t enough gore in it to appease today’s desensitized kids.

    Having watched the B&W version of The Haunting with Julie Harris and the updated version in colour & showing the CGI “monsters”-
    The original B&W was way scarier. Throughly believed the lines at the end & the beginning that whatever walked those halls walked alone.

    If you want to see good horror movies, where the acting and dialog were more important than the CGI or effects, watch the old B&W Universal monster movies; Dracula, the various Frankenstein movies and, of course, the Wolfman. BTW, there have been many werewolves in movies, but Chaney was the only person ever to play a wolfman. (Unless you count the completely unrelated film of that name from 1979, and I don’t.)

    I wouldn’t count Deliverance or Cuckoo’s Nest as horror. Classics, maybe, but horror they ain’t.
