Check out this great blood filled trailer for the amazing documentary on The Shining called Room 237. This is a must watch documentary for any fan of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, it will seriously open your eyes to this film, and could end up blowing your mind! This was one of my favorite movies at Sundance last year, and I've been wanting so badly to see it again, so I can try and soak more of it in. There's just so much information, and a lot of secrets that still reside in the Overlook Hotel! Make sure to check out our review of it here if you haven't already!
After the box office failure of Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick decided to embark on a project that might have more commercial appeal. The Shining, Stephen King’s biggest critical and commercial success yet, seemed like a perfect vehicle. After an arduous production, Kubrick’s film received a wide release in the summer of 1980; the reviews were mixed, but the box office, after a slow start, eventually picked up. End of story? Hardly. In the 30 years since the film’s release, a considerable cult of Shining devotees has emerged, fans who claim to have decoded the film’s secret messages addressing everything from the genocide of Native Americans to a range of government conspiracies. Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with cultists and scholars, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick’s still-controversial classic.
The movie hits theaters on March 29th, 2013... enjoy the trailer!
