"A masterpiece of modern horror."


  • Director: Stanley Kubrick
  • Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery & Suspense, Special Interest,
  • Studio: Hawk Films
  • Duration: 140 Mins

Stanley Kubrick's superb adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel stars Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall and young Danny Lloyd as the family that is invited to look after a remote mountain hotel when it's closed for the winter. It's not long before Nicholson becomes unhinged as a series of apparitions, hallucinations and time-warps begins to affect his sanity. Trust Kubrick to be different: this horror film chills rather than shocks, works by stealth and provides nothing but eerie discomfort. Filmed on an amazing set built at Elstree (the opening aerial scenes were shot by Kubrick's daughter at the Timberline Lodge in Oregon) and using a gliding Steadicam throughout, the technique is as overpowering as Nicholson's performance, which is both hammy and deeply disturbing.
