Jack Torrance accepts a caretaker job at the Overlook Hotel, where he, along with his wife Wendy and their son Danny, must live isolated from the rest of the world for the winter. But they aren't prepared for the madness that lurks within.


A masterpiece of modern horror.

A review by tanty

A masterpiece. Kubrick chose a perfect cast and uses the timing and music to create a greatly opressing atmosphere.

Nicholson is superb, but Duval and the kid are not less good.
