A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
The first of Stephen King's books to be banned from school libraries because of the theme of wicked parents.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
When Jack is angry in the kitchen after his argument with Wendy, he knocks kitchen utensils off the worktops, a couple of steel tins hit and bounce back off the camera. You can clearly see Jack start to laugh, but he goes back into character as he walks down the hall.
The party music plays over the closing credits. After it ends, we hear the Overlook Hotel ghosts applaud. They then talk amongst themselves until their voices fade away.
