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 ghost of an injured guest says "Great party, isn't it?" In the book, the ghost of Horace Derwent, the late owner of the Overlook Hotel, says this to Wendy and Danny.
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.
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.
