Today on TV The best horror film of all time — cinema news

Warner Bros.

» Shining » is a masterpiece of film history. Legendary director Stanley Kubrick conjured up a precisely composed horror trip on the screen in 1980, whose atmospherically dense whirlpool of cutting tension and nightmarish madness burned itself into film history forever. Just Jack Nicholson’s manic grimace peeking out through the crack in the door is still deeply anchored in pop culture consciousness more than 40 years later.

Warner Bros. «Here’s Johnny!»

For us, «The Shining» isn’t just any horror masterpiece, it’s actually the best horror film of all time . If you haven’t seen the Stephen King adaptation yet, you can catch up on it on Thursday night, April 22, 2022, at 12:20 a.m. on Kabel Eins .

Alternatively, “Shining” is currently also available on Netflix . But if you want to access the horror classic at any time and independently of current streaming licenses and TV broadcasts, then you should better grab the DVD or Blu-ray right away — optionally also in the US version, which compared to the European version is 23 minutes (!) longer.

Kabel Eins «only» shows the short version that was released in German cinemas at the time, but opinions differ as to which of the two versions is better. Some think that the US version gives the main character more depth with its additional exposition, while others think that the European version is more successful because it is reduced to the essentials.

That’s what «The Shining» is about

Writer Jack Torrance ( Jack Nicholson ) takes a part-time job as property manager at a hotel in the Colorado mountains that is closed for the winter months. Although he is advised that the loneliness in the mountains can affect the psyche and the previous employee murdered himself and his family while working. But Jack doesn’t take the warning seriously. He looks forward to writing his manuscript in seclusion.

So he moves into the hotel for six cold months, along with his wife Wendy ( Shelley Duvall ) and their young son Danny ( Danny Lloyd ), who has a psychic ability called the Shining. He perceives disturbing visions in the hotel, while father Jack seems to fall more and more into the madness that caused a bloodbath in his predecessor.
