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.
In the British television ad for the film, Jack can be seen tearing through the second door panel, a shot that was never used in the final cut.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
If the Overlook is closed during the winter months, how do they have a New Year's Eve Party photo with Jack at the end of the movie?
After the 146 minute version of the film was met with poor reviews and weak box office in the US, Stanley Kubrick re-edited the film for European release, removing 24 minutes of footage. Included in the removed footage were the entire performances of Anne Jackson as the Doctor and Tony Burton as Larry. However, both Jackson and Burton's names were still listed in the opening credits despite them no longer appearing in the film.
