Synopsis

Jack Torrance’s new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he’ll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote . . . and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

    An infrequent example of an adaptation improving, or even surpassing, the source material.

    1. Agreed! I love the book – I read it in one day in art school. The Kubrick adaptation is creepy in all the right ways – his style of cinematography lends itself exceptionally well to horror/suspense.
