Whenever my mind wanders to The Shining, I see it as Stanley Kubrick’s own game of chess. The psychological and supernatural horror film is a playground for the mind and subconscious, toying with our notions of sanity and allowing viewers to vear off and spark up their own theories and find meaning in all the madness. And speaking to the horror genre, Kubrick once said, “One of the things horror stories can do is show us the archetypes of the unconscious; we can see the dark side without having to confront it directly. Also, ghost stories appeal to our craving for  immortality. If you can be afraid of a ghost, you have to believe that a ghost may exist. And if a ghost exists, then oblivion might not be the end.”

Objects disappear, a typewriter changes color, and potent symbols of everything from genocide to space exploration crop up. Oh, there’s discussion of a moon landing hoax, but really the only unforgivable thing was when one dude called Barry Lyndon “boring.” That and how another guy kept pronouncing it “Kyoo-brick.”
