The Shining will be returning to UK and Irish theaters this Halloween, thanks to an impressive digital transfer completed by the British Film Institute. To celebrate and drum-up excitement, they’ve released a brand new trailer for the film, originally released in 1980. I think you’ll agree it’s a brilliant condensation of The Shining’s spookiness, suspense, and brutal violence. Danny’s near-constant chanting of “Red-rum” is especially unnerving!
Official Synopsis: Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) becomes winter caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado, hoping to cure his writer’s block. He settles in along with his wife, Wendy (Shelley Duvall), and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions. As Jack’s writing goes nowhere and Danny’s visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel’s dark secrets and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hell-bent on terrorizing his family.
