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.

Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
When Jack enters the hotel manager's office to disable the radio, there is a light switch on the wall to the right of the door. Earlier, when Jack enters the office to meet with Mr. Ullman for "the interview", there is clearly no light switch on the same wall.
The movie's opening titles are also the only instance in any Kubrick film where scrolling credits, rather than title cards, are used.
