..one of cinematic history's most lauded horror films. ” Reel Film Reviews
“Heeeeere’s Johnny!” Jack Nicholson suffers from one nasty case of writer’s block in Kubrick’s eccentric adaption of Stephen King’s metaphysical horror novel.
Frustrated novelist Jack Torrance (a perfectly demonic Jack Nicholson) takes a job as the winter caretaker of the isolated Overlook Hotel, with his long-suffering wife Wendy (the amazing Shelley Duvall) and young son Danny (Danny Lloyd) in tow. The fast-fragmenting family tries to make the best of things at the lonely resort, but as the snow, isolation and cabin fever begin to pile up, the true horror of the Overlook begins to emerge. As Jack’s sanity is pushed to the breaking point, the denizens of the demonic hotel start to take control and everyone is going to wish they’d never checked in.
Part of our “Bloody Winter” film series with Four Pillar’s Bloody Shiraz gin.
