The Shining
Release: April 27, 1997

Jack Torrance (Steven Weber) takes a job at the foreboding Overlook Hotel for the winter. But when his son (Courtland Mead) taps into the evil psychic energy that thrives in the grand hotel, all hell breaks loose. Stephen King was never happy with the Kubrick/Nicholson version of "The Shining," so he penned his own script and sold it to ABC as a miniseries. Fans of Nicholson's version generally hate this one, but fans of the novel usually prefer it. Unlike most of King's miniseries, this one didn't find its way to video right away, but it's now available on DVD. Also stars Rebecca DeMornay, Melvin Van Peebles and Elliott Gould.
