A masterpiece of modern horror – produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, co-written with novelist Diane Johnson, and starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Scatman Crothers, and Danny Lloyd. Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone of the macabre.
Writer, Jack Torrance (Nicholson) takes a job as an off-season caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel. His young son possesses psychic abilities and is able to see things from the past and future, including the spirits who inhabit the hotel. Soon after settling in, the family finds themselves snowbound, and Jack gradually becomes influenced by the supernatural presence. The Shining is Kubrick’s epic psychological thriller of a man descending into murderous delusions.

“Meticulously detailed and never less than fascinating, The Shining may be the first movie that ever made its audience jump with a title that simply says ‘Tuesday.’”
