Product Description

Writer and former teacher Jack Torrance signs on as caretaker for a hotel with a long, violent past -- a past that puts everyone in the hotel in a precarious situation. As Jack slowly grows more violent and angry about his life, his son Danny tries to use a special talent called the shining to warn people outside about what's happening at the hotel. Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall and Danny Lloyd star in this classic horror movie written by Stephen King and directed by Stanley Kubrick.

Review

Ostensibly a haunted house story, it manages to traverse a complex world of incipient madness, spectral murder and supernatural visions ... and also makes you jump. --Empire, Ian Nathan

But there is no way, within the film, to be sure with any confidence exactly what happens, or precisely how, or really why. Kubrick delivers this uncertainty in a film where the actors themselves vibrate with unease. --Chicago Sun-Times, Roger Ebert
