Stanley Kubrick directs this chilling adaptation of the Stephen King shocker. Seeking solitude in order to write a novel, Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) takes a job as an off-season caretaker at the remote Overlook Hotel in Colorado. Eager to get started, Jack disregards warnings that the isolation drove a former caretaker mad, and moves into the massive resort with his wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and son Danny (Danny Lloyd). But Danny has a supernatural gift which makes him aware of an evil lurking in the hotel, and sure enough, as winter storms cut the hotel off from civilisation, Jack gradually becomes murderously insane.

The Shining [Blu-ray] Sean Brady
Possibly one of the scariest films that's ever been made. Certainly it's the best adaption of a Stephen King novel, with Shawshank Redemption a close second. This creepy tale is more psychologically scary that visually, although the scenes in the corridor, from Danny's view, are beautifully constructed. You watch in horror as Jack's mind slowly disintegrates and the beast within comes out. The extras are great and I recommend watching the Making Of, to get a feel of how the master, Kubrik, works his magic.
