THE SHINING by Stephen King

Frustrated writer and loving family man Jack Torrance takes a job as a caretaker at an isolated hotel. His young son Danny possesses psychic abilities and is able to see things from the past and future, such as the ghosts who inhabit the hotel. Soon after settling in, the family is trapped in the hotel by a snowstorm, and Jack gradually becomes influenced by a supernatural presence; he descends into madness and attempts to murder his wife and son.

NOTE - This movie is more of an re-adaptation than an actual remake.
