Formats: DVD / VHS
Released (US): May 23rd, 1980

Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall), and their young son Danny (Danny Lloyd) move into the Overlook Hotel, where Jack has been hired as the winter caretaker. Cut off from civilization for months, Jack hopes to battle alcoholism and uncontrolled rage while writing. Danny's only companion during the long winter is an imaginary friend, Tony (Larry Durkin), who speaks to him and shows him visions of the murdered daughters of a previous caretaker. The hotel's head chef, Dick Halloran (Scatman Crothers), warns Danny before he leaves for the winter not to go into Room 237 and explains to Danny that he has the same psychic gift, the "shining". The long winter and the evil forces inside the hotel take its toll on Jack with dire consequences when Wendy discovers what Jack has really been working on rather than the novel he claims to have been writing.
