Jack is an alcoholic and does appear to get drunk later in the film. However, while we do see him drinking, it is unclear whether this is just an illusion.

One could argue that living in isolation is unintentional torture

*SPOILERS* The main kid, Danny, survives. Technically, no child deaths happen during the events of the movie. I still marked yes just because we learn about the murders of two young girls, and although this happened before the events of the movie it's mentioned a lot and we see visions of the gorey aftermath.

Kind of? Jack makes out with a woman who is not Wendy but it is somewhat of a hallucination.

Some, but not nearly as bad as the jump-scare-heavy modern horror movies. It's more about atmosphere and suspense.

There are ghosts throughout the movie. There is a ballroom filled with ghosts, two little girls that haunt the hallways and a goul/ghost in a haunted room.

*SPOILER* Not by a demon, but the hotel does control Jack and his behavior.

Danny Torrance (the son) becomes panicked and has bouts of attacks.

The whole movie has a claustrophobic feel, as the family are totally isolated at the hotel.

it’s not shown, but characters talk a couple times about a man who committed suicide after killing his own family.

Very sexual, but often shown in a creepy, disturbing way.

The n word is used a few times by white characters to refer negatively to a black character.

Sort of. The first dead bodies shown are white, but their deaths occurred before the start of the film. The first character to actually be killed onscreen is a black man.

*SPOILERS* Jack tries to kill his wife and son. he fails and dies of hypothermia. It's a good ending, depending on how you look at it.

It's mentioned that Jack once broke Danny's arm when he was drunk, but the act isn't shown.

An elevator is filled with blood. That's how much blood to expect.

We are shown the aftermath of a car crash caused by icy roads, but not really the car crash in action. However, it looks pretty violent
