First Teaser Trailer for 'Shining' Doc 'Room 237' Doesn't Show Much
Are you ready to return to Room 237? An early teaser trailer has finally been revealed for Rodney Ascher's highly acclaimed, much talked about documentary Room 237, about the deep "dark secrets" and numerous crazy conspiracies found within Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. The doc premiered at Sundance and has been playing the festival circuit all-around, including Cannes and Fantastic Fest, and will hopefully soon get released by IFC Films. This teaser, uploaded by Metrodome Film, contains nothing but critics' quotes and, if you listen closely, voiceover snippets from the film to create tension. There's not much to it, but it's a tease.
Here's the first "trailer" for Rodney Ascher's doc Room 237, originally found by The Film Stage:
From the Fantastic Fest guide: "Rodney Ascher's Room 237 is a fascinating documentary that explores bizarre theories about the subtext and symbolism underlying Stanley Kubrick's landmark film The Shining." This documentary, which first premiered at Sundance and also played in Cannes, is made-up entirely of existing and archival footage, including many different segments of all of Stanley Kubrick's films. It features voiceovers which breakdown and discuss the theories and ideas within The Shining. Room 237 also played Fantastic Fest and the NYFF, and will be released by IFC Films. No date is set yet.
