Starring: Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Scatman Crothers, Danny Lloyd
Duration: 119 min
Struggling author Jack (Nicholson) is installed as winter caretaker in an empty, snowbound hotel in the company of his wife Wendy (Duvall) and psychically gifted son Danny (Lloyd). But the hotel has a grim history, and as its dark soul begins to possess Jack, Danny too becomes enmeshed in its terrors. Based on the novel by Stephen King, Kubrick's superb essay on fluorescent-lit horror, with its combination of bleak comedy, creepy atmosphere and sumptuously horrible visuals, became an instant genre classic.
