"As a huge fan of almost all of Kubrick's oeuvre, I first went to see this film on initial release, and was really disappointed. There is a lack of empathy for the main characters, so I didn't really care what happened to them. Kubrick's rather cerebral style works marvellously with most of the projects he chose, but not, I think with the horror genre. Would I change my mind if I saw it again now? Probably not."
