Stephen King's 'The Shining' (1997) On Blu-ray March 12th from Scream Factory!



Scream Factory presents Stephen King’s The Shining (1997) on Blu-ray™. The release feature a new 2K scan from the interpositive as well as audio commentary from Stephen King, director Mick Garris, cast members Steven Weber and Cynthia Garris, and select crew.

110 empty hotel rooms – filled with horror!

Jack Torrance (Steven Weber) and his family (Rebecca De Mornay and Courtland Mead) move into the sprawling, vacant Overlook Hotel to get away from it all. Away from the alcoholism that derails Jack’s writing career. Away from the violent outbursts that mar Jack’s past. But Jack’s young son Danny knows better. He possesses a psychic gift called the shining — a gift the hotel’s vile spirits desperately want.

In the hands of Stephen King, the “dead” Overlook comes horrifyingly alive. Phantoms lurk, the message “redrum” appears with scary frequency, and even the garden topiary lurches into macabre existence in this atmospheric shocker scripted by King from his own novel and directed by ace King adaptor Mick Garris (Sleepwalkers, The Stand).
