“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” — or, rather, a homicidal boy in Stanley Kubrick’s eerie 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel.
With wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and psychic son Danny (Danny Lloyd) in tow, frustrated writer Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) takes a job as the winter caretaker at the opulently ominous, mountain-locked Overlook Hotel so that he can write in peace. Before the Overlook is vacated for the Torrances, the manager (Barry Nelson) informs Jack that a previous caretaker went crazy and slaughtered his family; Jack thinks it’s no problem, but Danny’s “shining” hints otherwise… THE SHINING is creative director Stanley Kubrick’s intense, epic, gothic horror film and haunted house masterpiece – a beautiful, stylish work that distanced itself from the blood-letting and gore of most modern films in the horror genre which still retains the power to frighten audiences out of their wits.
“Kubrick has made a movie that will have to be reckoned with on the highest level.” – Time
“The movie is not about ghosts but about madness and the energies it sets loose in an isolated situation primed to magnify them.” – Rodger Ebert
“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’ “ – New York Times
“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
