  1. That Polish poster is scarier than anything in the actual film.

    This Shining-centric Channel 4 promo for a Season of Kubrick is also pretty dazzling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4O6WVurC0j0


    • That Channel 4 promo is wonderful. Thanks for that.

  2. Amazing post, but this is totally unrelated. Have you seen this poster from Cold Souls? http://www.cinematical.com/photos/cold-souls-poster/2083721/
    I thought it might interest you.
