'The Shining' Conspiracy Doc 'Room 237' Gets a Bloody Full Trailer
"An amazing experience…" That's one of the quotes they feature and it's perfect. IFC Films has revealed a full-length trailer for Rodney Ascher's documentary Room 237, about the various conspiracies and hidden things found within Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. It was one of my favorite films of 2012 and will finally be hitting theaters this March. The original teaser trailer they put out in November had nothing but audio, this time they've got video, but it's not from the film (since that'd be footage from Kubrick's films). Instead, it's an awesome VHS player recreation of the original bloody trailer to The Shining. You'll want to see this!
Watch the full-length trailer for Rodney Ascher's documentary Room 237, in high def from Apple:
From the Fantastic Fest '12 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. They will finally be releasing Room 237 in limited theaters and iTunes VOD starting March 29th this spring. For more info, visit room237movie.com.
