Horror 1980 144 mins
Director: Stanley Kubrick
Jack Nicholson revels in his terrifying performance as Jack Torrance, the would-be writer and winter caretaker of the vast Overlook Hotel who becomes the minotaur trapped in Kubrick’s supernatural maze, as he descends into madness. Quite possibly the most speculated-upon film ever made, Kubrick made the quintessential psychological horror film on the first attempt. Gloriously disturbing, unforgettable, must-see cinema.
The film is presented here in its US version which – at 144 minutes - runs 24 minutes longer than the standard European version. The US cut was largely unseen by British audiences, and never officially released, prior to the BFI's theatrical release of this version in 2012.
