Join us February 22nd as HorrorBuzz.com returns to present the film that Entertainment Weekly calls the #1 Scariest Film of All Time, and that still rides at the top of countless Horror Film ranking lists — Stanley Kubrick’s terrifying masterpiece of looming dread, The Shining.
In this 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s 1977 bestseller, Jack Nicholson delivers one of his most unhinged and iconic performances as Jack Torrance, a struggling writer who takes a job as the winter caretaker of the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado. He settles in along with his wife, Wendy (Shelley Duvall), and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions that only get worse the more time he spends at the creepy hotel. As Jack’s writing goes nowhere and Danny’s visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel’s dark secrets, and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hellbent on terrorizing his family.
Easily one of the most nightmare-inducing horror films of all time – especially when experienced on the big screen – The Shining will be presented in 4K and on a remastered 5.1 stereo soundtrack, courtesy of Warner Bros.
