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.
The first time we see Jack's typewriter at the Overlook Hotel, it is a small white typewriter. Later, when he is actually typing, it is a larger, blue typewriter. However it is entirely possible that Jack borrowed the blue typewriter from one of the offices.
The movie's opening titles are also the only instance in any Kubrick film where scrolling credits, rather than title cards, are used.
