Scrubbed: Watch 'The Shining' Without Delbert Grady & 'Fight Club' Minus Tyler Durden

What’s the difference between delusion and reality? That depends on who you’re talking to, but if who you’re talking to is a figment of your imagination, a hallucination or not altogether real at all, you may have a problem. And these two videos highlight that fact in some fun ways.

Richard Trammell has worked some digital trickery to show off scenes from “The Shining” and “Fight Club,” missing some key characters. From Stanley Kubrick‘s film, we see Jack Nicholson talk to an absent Delbert Grady in the bathroom of the Overlook (those red tiles are still hot), meanwhile, Edward Norton punches a missing Tyler Durden in the ear. It’s clever stuff, providing a new perspective to these films and well worth a moment of your time. So click below.
