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 was released in the United States on Scatman Crothers' seventieth birthday.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
When Wendy brings Jack breakfast in bed, they appear to change sides, but in fact, the first shot is in a mirror.
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.
