"YOU'RE THE CARETAKER, SIR. YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN THE
CARETAKER. I SHOULD KNOW, SIR. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN HERE...."
-- DELBERT GRADY OF THE OVERLOOK HOTEL
First published in 1977, The Shining quickly became a
benchmark in the literary career of Stephen King. This tale
of a troubled man hired to care for a remote mountain
resort over the winter, his loyal wife, and their uniquely
gifted son slowly but steadily unfolds as secrets from the
Overlook Hotel's past are revealed, and the hotel itself
attempts to claim the very souls of the Torrence family.
Adapted into a cinematic masterpiece of horror by
legendary Stanley Kubrick -- featuring an unforgettable
performance by a demonic Jack Nicholson --The Shining
stands as a cultural icon of modern horror, a searing study
of a family torn apart, and a nightmarish glimpse into the
dark recesses of human weakness and dementia.
