Quintessential horror from one of America’s greatest directors and one of our most popular novelists. This Stephen King adaptation crawls with atmospheric dread from the opening scene to the closing credits, inhabiting a special place in the psyche of all those who have witnessed its bloody, psychotic mastery.  Jack Nicholson stars as Jack Torrance, a down-on-his-luck writer who accepts a caretaker job at the historic Overlook Hotel. After packing up the wife and child, this family fraught with their own demons embarks on a journey of isolation, madness, and mystical mind games culminating in a terrifying fever dream.
