Definitely not the original trailer. Gives too much of the plot away too quickly and is littered with tropes from contemporary movie trailers - like that final jolt at the end. Feels just like all the trailers of today.

The original trailer was just the scene of the elevator with the blood and some credits. Nothing more

I watched this on DVD in Halloween last night and it was absolutely terrifying.

It's about a madman known as Jack who attempted to murder his wife and son in the hotel.

Sickening that they put this up under Kubrik's name. He hated sensationalist trailer trash like this.

An excellent effort, though about 45 seconds too long. Bravo!
