Okay, hear me out; The Shining fails as an adaptation for all the reasons we all know by this point, but does it fail as a horror movie in its own right? Well, I believe it does, according to my own subjective criteria on what a horror film needs to be.
Videos referenced; – The Shining (1980) – Making The Shining (1980) – The Haunting of Hill House (2018) – I Feel Fantastic (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLy-AwdCOmI)

Again, this video is based on my own subjective opinions on filmmaking and horror – if you disagree, feel free to let me know in the comments!
