With wife Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and psychic son Danny (Danny Lloyd) in tow, frustrated writer Jack Torrence (Jack Nicholson) takes a job as the winter caretaker at the opulently ominous, mountain-locked Overlook Hotel so that he can write in peace. Before the Overlook is vacated for the Torrances, the manager informs Jack that a previous caretaker went crazy and slaughtered his faimly. Jack doesn’t think it’s a problem but Danny’s “shining” hints otherwise. Settling into their routine, Danny cruises through the empty corridors on his Big Wheel, while Jack sets up shop in a cavernous lounge with strict orders not to be disturbed. Danny’s alter ego “Tony” starts warning of “redrum” as Danny is plagued by blood soaked visions of the past. Frightened by her husband’s behavior and Danny’s visit to room 237, Wendy soon discovers what Jack has really been doing in his study all day, and what the hotel has done to Jack.
