The Shining sees Jack Torrance and his family moving into The Overlook Hotel to serve as caretakers while the establishment closes for the winter. But when cabin fever begins to set in, Jack starts to behave strangely and becomes increasingly more violent. So much so that even his own family doesn’t seem to recognize him. Jack begins to see spirits all throughout the lodge and undergoes a major change in overall demeanor as the film unfolds.
