About

THE SHINING is Stanley Kubrick’s psychological horror masterpiece, a stylized classic which continues to influence the entire genre. Inspired by Stephen King’s bestselling novel, the film stars Jack Nicholson in one of his most iconic roles – Jack Torrance, an aspiring writer and winter caretaker of the Overlook Hotel. Kubrick’s signature visuals turn the cavernous, empty hotel into one of the most terrifying settings of all time, while classic horror moments from REDRUM to “Heeeeere’s Johnny” to the creepy twins continue to draw rabid fans to this enduring horror favorite.
