About the film:

When writer Jack Torrance—who has a history of alcoholism and child abuse—takes a job as winter caretaker for a hotel high in the Rocky Mountains, he, his wife and their psychic young son will be isolated until spring. But once the first blizzard closes the road out, the accumulated power of evil deeds committed at the hotel begins to drive Jack mad.

“Kubrick has made a movie that will have to be reckoned with on the highest level.”

—Richard Schickel, Time Magazine

Stanley Kubrick’s disturbing adaptation of Stephen King’s blockbuster horror novel was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2018. The 4K remastering was done using a new 4K scan of the original 35mm camera negative.

About the filmmaker:

Stanley Kubrick was an American film director, screenwriter, and producer, frequently cited as one of the most influential filmmakers in cinematic history. With his strict control over details and penchant for working from books, he crafted masterpieces in radically different genres, including Spartacus (1960), Dr. Strangelove (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975), The Shining (1980), Full Metal Jacket (1987), and Eyes Wide Shut (1999).
