Jack Torrance gets a job as the custodian of the Overlook Hotel, in the mountains of Colorado. The place is closed down during winter, Torrance and his family will be the only occupants of the hotel for a long while.

When the snow storms block the Torrance family in the hotel, Jack’s son Danny, who has some clairvoyance and telepathy powers, discovers that the hotel is haunted and that the spirits are slowly driving Jack crazy. When Jack meets the ghost of Mr. Grady, the former custodian of the hotel who murdered his wife and his two daughters, things begin to get really nasty.

Movie Reviews: “The Shining

Movie Review: Chicago Reader

The shining creates a new fantasy for us. Kubrick leaves us wondering whether or not whats happening to Jacj is paranormal or real. It keeps people wondering until the end; which even then had us confused. For instance when the original ax murder unlocks the door is it a ghost or what? The end also has us wondering in the end. Why was jack in a 1921 party picture from the hotel? These snow trapped freaks had us going from the beginning.

Movie Review: New York Daily News

The opening scene of “The Shining” is along a narrow mountain road while the “Dies Irae” plays ominously on the soundtrack. The camera veers out away from the car toward the horizon as if to bear down on something significant… and then comes back to the car. The movement is a sort of portent for the direction of the movie, which takes two and a half hours to go nowhere.

This is Stanley Kubrick’s long-awaited horror movie, based on the novel by Stephen King, author of “Carrie,” a project so closely guarded that even studio executives had trouble seeing the finished product before its premiere.

Movie Review: Time Out

All of Stanley Kubrick’s films – be it ‘The Killing’ or ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ – demand to be seen on a big screen. They’re about people trapped in huge, indifferent machines gone wrong, from a heist plot to a spaceship, and only the huge indifference of the cinema does them justice. In ‘The Shining’, the machine is a haunted house: the Overlook Hotel, created by Stephen King and turned by Kubrick into an awry environment in which mental stability, supernatural malignance and the sense of space and time shimmer and warp to terrible effect.

The story sees Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) drag his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and psychic son Danny (Danny Lloyd) up a mountain to be the hotel’s winter caretaker. Things go badly. This is the original 1980 US version, 24 minutes longer than the one familiar to UK audiences. On the upside, it fleshes out the family’s city life and includes an intriguing TV-watching motif; on the downside, there are some daft scare shots and it didn’t ever exactly feel short at two hours. Still, a masterpiece.
