Jack Torrance accepts a caretaker job at the Overlook Hotel, where he, along with his wife Wendy and their son Danny, must live isolated from the rest of the world for the winter. But they aren’t prepared for the madness that lurks within.

There is not much that I could say about this horror masterpiece that hasn’t already been said, so I’ll keep it brief. This film scares the shit out of me. This film draws me in and keeps me engrossed for the entire run time, every time I’ve ever watched it (which is many, many times). The overlook hotel has an energy unlike any other film set piece I’ve yet to discover. The Shining is an absolute powerhouse of film writing, directing and scoring and it will continue to leave me awestruck forever.

All the credit goes to the cast & crew of the film.
