Comment
Jack Nicholson, his wife (Shelly Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd) take the job as caretaker in a remote hotel for the winter. The son starts seeing visions of people whilst Jack Nicholson slowly goes insane. Jack Nicholson gives one of his best performances as the caretaker terrorising his family in a hotel cut off from the world. From a filming perspective, it is the use of a steady-cam that draws the viewers into several of the scenes. Based on the novel by Stephen King but it is Staley Kubrick's interpretation that defines the film. .
