Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), a Vermont schoolteacher and novelist, accepts a job as the winter caretaker of the glorious early-20th-century resort that operates only in warm weather because the snowy roads deny access in the colder months. Jack brings his wife, Wendy (Shelley Duvall), with him, as well as his young son, Danny (Danny Lloyd). As the Torrances settle in for the long, lonely months ahead, strange, unexplainable things start occurring in the hotel – and in every scene Jack seems to be growing a little more evil and dangerous.
