R | | Drama, Horror
A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
The film is included on Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" list.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
After Wendy has locked Jack in the pantry, we hear him slamming against the door repeatedly in an attempt to escape. The door doesn't move an inch, yet, in the interior shot, we see the door giving when he's saying "go check it out" and slamming his hands against it.
The movie's opening titles are also the only instance in any Kubrick film where scrolling credits, rather than title cards, are used.
