I’m sure there is something here that will be enough to pique your interest.
Here’s a full-length trailer for Rodney Ascher‘s documentary Room 237, a crazy vision of Stanley Kubrick‘s horror movie The Shining, but you won’t hear any of those theories in this trailer.
The conspiracy thriller Room 237 opens March 29th, 2013 at the IFC Center and Elinor Bunim Monroe Film Center in New York City, followed by a national rollout.
The fan-favorite doc at Sundance and Fantastic Fest 2012 also won the IDA Documentary Award for Best Editing.
Check it out in the player below to see the cute trailer, which problem is how well it sells the movie and beside this – lack of originality.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
