Stanley Kubrick meets Stephen King in this bravura vision of a descent into madness that took the horror genre to new heights. Writer Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) takes a job as the caretaker in a resort hotel and moves his family high into the Colorado mountains. As the only residents of the hotel for the winter, what starts as a nice, quiet place to get some writing done takes a very sinister turn after his psychic son Danny begins to see gruesome images of the ghosts who inhabit the hotel, and a dark force gains influence over Jack. Required viewing for cinephiles, the film’s iconic imagery has inspired legions of impassioned fans to deconstruct the film.
