The Shining movie storyline:

The Shining became the benchmark of horror upon it’s release in 1980. The director Stanley Kubrick created a timeless feature which has immersed generations of us in a tale of psychological terror. The Shining is a truly chilling and isolating tale it possesses the ability to tap into our innate fears.

With wife Wendy and stereo-typically creepy child Danny in tow, they settle in for an isolating winter. The cracks quickly begin to show, as Jack seems to be on a knife edge of insanity before the surreal apparitions even begin, tormented by his demons, he fails to notice his child making peace with the ghostly apparitions, as the family helplessly meander down the long cold corridors, upon the blood red floors you start to feel sick with dread.
