One of the most popular psychological horror movies of all time will be screened in the spooky setting of the Old Town Quarry this Halloween – and you could win tickets for you and your friends.

The film follows the story of a family who head to an isolated hotel to take care of it during the winter.

But an evil and spiritual presence is lurking and the father, Jack (Jack Nicholson), turns to violence.

Throughout the film the son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), sees horrific images of the past and predictions of the future.

Shelley Duvall plays the mother Wendy in the 1980 film, which is based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King and was directed by Stanley Kubrick.

Anyone looking to be spooked on Halloween can see the cult classic at the Old Town Quarry in South Road, Weston, on October 31.

Gates will open at 7.30pm and the film will start at 8.15pm.

Tickets, priced £12-13, are available online via
The Mercury has teamed up with Backyard Cinema to offer four lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show.

The competition will close at 10am on October 9.
