    Mark Romanek In Talks To Eventually Drop Out Of Directing Warner Bros.' 'The Shining' Prequel

Bu...

    Watch: 70 Famous Films Get Sweded In 10 Minutes

    Oh hey, remember sweding? Basically, it refers to (intentionally) low-budget recreations of movies, first brought to major light in Michel Gondry's "Be Kind Rewind," though managing to take on a life of its own and arguably becoming more popular than that movie itself.

    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.

    David Cronenberg Says Stanley Kubrick Didn't Understand Horror And That 'The Shining' Is Not "A Great Film"

    For whatever reason, Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" has been a bit more scrutinized than usual in 2013.

    Ever since its release in 1980, Stephen King has shared his displeasure about Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of "The Shining," and even went so far as to executive produce and write a 1997 TV mini-series version of his story.
