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.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
When Hallorann and Danny are talking about "the Shining", the camera goes back and forth between close-ups of them. In one shot of Danny, his hair appears messy and wild, but the next time, we see him his hair is neat and his posture is more straight and attentive.
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.
