In cinemas 2 November 2012
Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece of modern horror is widely considered to be the most terrifying movie of all time.
Directed by Stanley Kubrick
With Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, Scatman Crothers
Running time 144 mins
Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, this tale of a family man and would-be writer (Jack Nicholson) going mad as winter caretaker of the cursed Overlook Hotel is a seminal work of the genre. It is also, as Martin Scorsese has pointed out, like no other horror film ever made – ‘essentially unclassifiable, endlessly provocative and profoundly disturbing’. The BFI will release a magnificent new digital transfer from Warner Bros. of the US version which has never before been released in the UK and which – at 144 minutes – runs 24 minutes longer than the European version previously seen.
