Academy Award winner Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall star in director Stanley Kubrick's disturbing adaptation of Stephen King's blockbuster horror novel. When writer Jack Torrance (Nicholson)--who has a history of alcoholism and child abuse--takes a job as winter caretaker for a hotel high in the Rocky Mountains, he, his wife (Duvall) and their psychic young son will be isolated until spring. But once the first blizzard closes the road out, the accumulated power of evil deeds committed at the hotel begins to drive Jack mad. Now there may be no escape for his wife and son in this haunting madness, memory and family violence.

    The scenery is outstanding considering it’s an 80’s movie. The beginning might be a bit boring for some, but once the movie starts to build up momentum you can’t stop watching.Definitely recommend it.

  • This copy has digital issues

    Starting at 1:20 there starts to be static going across the screen. Luckily this movie has movies anywhere because my VUDU copy is playing just fine.
  • Digital bug

    About an hour and twenty minutes into the movie bars of static appear. It's an otherwise five star movie ruined by a digital bug in the programming.

    The Shining isn't like other horror movies like Friday the 13th, Halloween or even Alien as supposed to it's source material The Shining is a masterpiece why because of everything about it is scary and realistic the acting is fantastic even the settings are beautiful the look of the shining is scary most of it is violent and haunting don't watch this alone.
