Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) becomes the 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.

    Wish they would hurry up and bring back the 3 for £30 deals, they seem to have dried up completely.

    Agree completely. £10 is my normal bite point for a 4k.

    Unfortunately 8K is going to be a very small market,most people are not even interested in 4K apart from us small band of freaks.I guess people prefer their streaming with expensive TVs etc.It’s a shame as they are missing out in my opinion.😳

    As usual Amazon show the wrong specs. This comes in 1.85:1 ratio with DTS HD Master Audio 5.1 sound mix.

    It's not 1.85:1. It's listed as that on the sleeve,but..A word about aspect ratios: One slightly controversial element of this 4K restoration (which also extends to the included Blu-ray disc*, as as well as Warner Bros.' 2007 Blu-ray) is its 1.78:1 framing, which is very common for WB catalog releases theatrically framed at 1.85:1. In comparison to that older Blu-ray, this new remaster also appears slightly zoomed-in by a factor of less than 5%, but nothing of great interest is lost. Take all this with a grain of salt, obviously: many home video releases presented The Shining in unmatted 1.33:1, which often ruined some of its more claustrophobic compositions, while some fans have even argued for 1.66:1, AKA "European widescreen". (The excellent Stanley Kubrick Archives squashes that argument, showing a handwritten Kubrick note explaining that his films are composed for 1.85:1 but protected for 1.33:1 TV broadcast.) So while it's disappointing that The Shining doesn't keep its theatrical aspect ratio, this seems to be a fair compromise; after all, 1.78:1 is the new television standard.
