In cinemas 2 November 2012

Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece of modern horror is widely considered to be the most terrifying movie of all time.

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.
