    Stanley Kubrick's Producer Jan Harlan Says 'The Shining' Doc 'Room 237' Is "Idiotic"

    Within the walls of The Playlist, we don't always agree on everything. While I found Rodney Ascher's "Room 237" to be a pretty terrific, fascinating and funny look at the wild ways Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" has inspired tin foil hat types, others don't agree. Around the office, another colleag...

    What to Rent/Buy This Week on DVD/Blu-ray: 'Room 237,' The First Gruesome Season of 'Hannibal' and More

    VOD is all the rage right now, and for good reason (check out our September list HERE). But while it's gratifying to know that you can watch pretty much anything with the simple click of a button, there's something comforting about tearing into a DVD/Blu-ray case and popping the disc into yo...

    What Are You Seeing This Weekend? 'The Host' & 'Place Beyond The Pines' May Spark 'Retaliation' Or 'Temptation'

    There ain't nothing like some bad behavior to kick off a stellar weekend. You know -- by cutting class, or taking a walk of shame, or going to work hungover on Friday morning. Or, as the movie stars like to do it, by killing some dudes, pulling off a bank job, stealing a dog, and implanting a jellyf...

    Review: 'Room 237' An Outstanding, Fascinating & Funny Exploration & Celebration Of 'The Shining'

    Is "The Shining" just a horror movie about a guy who goes berserk in a hotel, or is it subversively about the history of American genocide?

    23.7 Facts About Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining'

    You know that a film is a lasting classic when it can sustain another entire film being made about it. Be it "Citizen Kane," "Psycho" or "Apocalypse Now," many of the great movies have themselves been the subject of films (sometimes successfully, sometimes less so), and the latest to get the treatme...

    Another Great 'Room 237' Poster Puts 'The Shining' Conspiracy Theories Front & Center

    The Timberline Lodge, Oregon, does not have a Room 237. In Stephen King's book, the room of mystery is actually Room 217, but its proprietors felt that as the real-life double of Stanley Kubrick’s diabolical Overlook Hotel, the room’s axe-wielding associations mightn’t be the strongest draw for the ...

    New Poster For Doc 'Room 237' Pays Homage To The Original 'The Shining' One Sheet

    While Rodney Ascher's documentary "Room 237" quite vocally does not have the endorsement of the Stanley Kubrick estate, that hasn't stopped the marketing from paying homage to "The Shining." It was just about a month ago, the a clever trailed riffed on the original teaser and now that playfulness ha...
