- 2h 26min
- Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
- Cast: Jack Nicholson, Shelly Duvall, Philip Stone.
Kubrick's overwrought, overlong horror film dispenses with much of the psychic apparatus of Stephen King's novel to concentrate on the deeper horror of a family turning in on itself. Nicholson, with all the stops out, is bug-eyed and demonic as the writer cracking up violently in an isolated hotel, and the final scenes are, literally, chilling.
