Fathom Events is bringing  the horror classic, The Shining, back to the silver screen for a one week special engagement. FlickDirect's Austin Putnam was able to catch one of viewings and gives his thoughts on this special event.

ABOUT THE SHINING
From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, director Stanley Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone macabre. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson ("Heeeere's Johnny!") plays Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel, as the off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd). Torrance has never been there before - or has he? The answer lies in a ghostly time warp of madness and murder.
