    I've never seen The Shining, but I'm guessing the tone of that fake commercial was a bit different than the tone of the movie, because I remember seeing the 1st scene of that movie once, and it wasn't so quaint. :p

    Awwww, am I the only one who thinks that would be a really cute movie? :eek:

    So...were those clips remixed from actual Shining footage (plus new music, obviously), or where did the material for that "trailer" come from? :)

    LOL, that is hilarious. Yes, those are actual clips from the horror movie the Shining. However, they are all taken completely out of context. For example, when the kid is running down the hall, it is for his life. Also when they show him kissing that girl, it is actual the "ghost" or memory of a person who committed suicide there, that was a gross scene.

    Oh that wacky Stanley Kubrick and his crazy antics.

    I'll take the wife to that one....a good romantic comedy that is. :rolleyes:

    That was the funniest thing I have ever seen on MacRumors. I'm an ENORMOUS Kubrick fan and this made my day. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the clip.

    :D :D :D :D

    Haha.

    I think the scariest part of the movie is the lady. I don't remember her name.

    Shelly Duval?

    I saw this movie when I was 8. You can't imagine how scary this movie was for me. :(

    I was going to say the same thing - her name's Shelley Duvall. There's one quick cut away to a close up of her that made me jump the first time I saw it. Scariest moment in the film.

    Heh. That's like Stanley Kubrick's most masterful cinematic shot. That image scared the s**t out of me when I was younger. No bloody gore but really really scary. Kubrick was a master at this. He kinda lost it with Eyes Wide Sh*t. :D

    Brilliant! That made me laugh hard.

    What's ridiculous, is that version would probably do pretty well in today's theaters.

    Funny how those scenes take on a whole new light with that ultra happy song behind them....and the horrifying parts left out helps too.
