About the Film:
Wait, why is "Redrum" painted on the walls of The Little? The Shining was released 40 years ago, and it's time to re-visit the Overlook Hotel.
Plot refresher: Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) becomes winter caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado, hoping to cure his writer's block. He settles in along with his wife, Wendy (Shelley Duvall), and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions. As Jack's writing goes nowhere and Danny's visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel's dark secrets and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hell-bent on terrorizing his family.
Directed by Stanley Kubrick; based on the novel by Stephen King.
