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.
Wendy, at the breakfast scene in the beginning of the film, is reading "The Catcher In The Rye" by J.D. Salinger.
Hi, I've got an appointment with Mr. Ullman. My name is Jack Torrance.
When Jack talks with Lloyd the bartender for the first time, you can see two errors: the pattern of the bar is lighted glass, wood and then lighted glass again. you can see that at the beginning, Jack sits and the wood part is right in the center of his body, one moment later it's near his left hand, and few moments later it's far away from his left hand.
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.
