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.
In the book The Day of the Triffids, Bill Masen walks into a hotel shouting "Anybody here?" like Dick Hallorann in this film.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
When Mr. Ullman interviews Jack and explains why the hotel is closed for the winter, he finished his sentence while his left hand grabs his right. A second later, it is his right hand grabbing his left - a mirror image.
The movie's opening titles are also the only instance in any Kubrick film where scrolling credits, rather than title cards, are used.
