Synopsis

Jack Torrance gets a job as the custodian of a hotel in the mountains of Colorado. The place is closed during winter, so he and his family are the only occupants. When a snow storm isolates the family in the hotel, Jack's son Danny - who has some clairvoyance and telepathy powers - discovers that the hotel is haunted and the spirits are slowly driving Jack crazy. Jack meets the ghost of Mr. Grady, the former custodian of the hotel who murdered his wife and daughters.

As we are reviewing this film from the boy actor point of view, Danny Lloyd's performance just about qualifies for the relatively small part he had. He is swamped by the superb acting of the adults.

Fantastic film! A Must See! Classic!

Stanley Kubrick and Shelley Duvall didn't get along well on set either.

I love Jack Nicholson's performance, he was very convincing! I used to have the DVD, in the Special Features, Jack somewhat indicated that he wasn't to happy working with Duvall, she complained way to much! in the dream scene where Danny sees the elevator open, and blood spills out onto the floor! it's Cranberry juice! about a thousand gallons! I love this movie, it's one of my favs, and not just because Danny Lloyd is in it, I just like it overall!
