One of my all time favorite horror movies starring the legendary Jack Nicholson in one of his most iconic roles as Jack Torrance, a struggling writer who takes on as the winter caretaker of an isolated hotel in the hopes of finding the time to finish his work. It doesn’t go very well for him, or his family. Not the classic Halloween Slasher, Kubrick does an amazing job in making us feel the isolation of being trapped in a huge hotel…alone for a period of time.
