No, it isn't. While I admire Kubrick, it's not one of his best. It's basically just Jack Nicholson going bonkers. I've been more scared watching some of those old Hammer films with Christopher Lee as Dracula, for example. And I can think of many more scarier films.

good script (one of a kind) it would be a good movie even if they hadn't used Jack..........but because they did use him it made the movie as good as it is and the only reason

Maybe, the Movie Whisper scared me.

In Whisper it's what the boy says more than the actions. Makes You think.

I can't stomach horror movies, didn't finish the Shining.

Maybe. I mean there is no scariest movie, but for some people it's The Shining and that's understandable as it is a great, terrifying film. For me it's probably something else although I do love The Shining and it did frighten me when I fist saw it at like 12 years old
