Watch: Synchronized Collage Of Every Zoom Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining'

There are many reasons why Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" is a masterpiece of modern horror, from Jack Nicholson's performance as Jack Torrance, the writer whose mind is slowly unraveling into madness, to the carefully established tone of slow dread. But as usual, Kubrick's unwavering eye behind the camera plays a big part in the mood and feel of the film.

Over on Vimeo, Ian Kammer has put together a nice little collage of every (usually slow) zoom shoot in the film, a good reminder of how, with a simple camera movement, Kubrick establishes an unbelievable feeling of claustrophobia and fear. Nicely done. Watch below. [via Reddit]
