Later this month you'll finally be able to see the mind blowing documentary for The Shining, Room 237. If you're a fan of Stanley Kubrick's classic horror film, then this doc is a must watch! Thanks to io9 we have a new poster for the film that features an illustration created around "Calumet Baking Powder", which you see in the background of the film, but which could have a bigger meaning than what you might expect. It also features a silhouette of Apollo 11. What does Apollo 11 have to do with The Shining? It's all explained in depth in the doc, and you'll just have to wait to see!
As I've said before there's just so many awesome conspiracy theories packed into this movie, it will take multiple viewings to get all of the secrets that reside in the Overlook Hotel. Make sure to check out our review of the film 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.
