Description

After poor reviews (!) upon its initial North American release in 1980, horror classic The Shining saw 25 of its original 144 minutes trimmed by director Stanley Kubrick for its European run. Now, for the first time, you can see the full version of this seminal frightener just in time for Halloween—and in an amazing 4K restoration effected to honour the film’s 40th anniversary to boot!

In case you need reminding about the plot, the story takes place at the deserted Overlook Hotel during the course of one winter, when caretaker Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson at his over-the-top best)—to the horrified chagrin of wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and pyschic son Danny (Danny Lloyd)—slowly descends into a state of muderous insanity. More than just a horror film, The Shining is a deeply disturbing, visually ravishing, and psychologically intense cinematic experience. In other words, it’s perfect for Halloween! Redrum, redrum, redrum...
