    The Shining

    What more is there to say?

    What we give to the poor is what we take with us when we die.

    The "Keeper of the Ninth"

    It's pretty good, the CGI is horrible though.

    I watched it this week. Enjoyed it a lot, but yeah the CGI was really horrible.

    Still original movie >>> though, apart from the characterisation of Jack which was done better in the mini-series.

    I need to get my hands on the book.

    The Shining is a 1980 horror film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick[7] and co-written with novelist Diane Johnson. The film is based on Stephen King's 1977 novel of the same name.

    The Shining is about Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), an aspiring writer and recovering alcoholic, who accepts a position as the off-season caretaker of the isolated historic Overlook Hotel in the Colorado Rockies. Wintering over with Jack are his wife Wendy Torrance (Shelley Duvall) and young son Danny Torrance (Danny Lloyd). Danny possesses "the shining", psychic abilities that enable him to see into the hotel's horrific past. The hotel's cook, Dick Hallorann (Scatman Crothers), also has this and is able to telepathically communicate with Danny. The hotel had a previous winter caretaker who went crazy and killed his family and himself. After a winter storm leaves the Torrances snowbound, Jack's sanity deteriorates due to the influence of the supernatural forces that inhabit the hotel, placing his wife and son in danger.
