Viral Video: “Room 237” Is the Most Creep-Tastic Trailer Ever

url

Here is perhaps one of the most cleverly creepy trailers for a new documentary called “Room 237,” which examines the many intricacies that have sprung up about the horror movie classic, “The Shining.”

At the time it was released in 1980, the film started as more of a box office flop for director Stanley Kubrick. But, since then, it has become a cult phenom, and that is where “Room 237” starts the fun, with all the many theories — mostly of the conspiracy kind — about “The Shining.”

Gory fun, of course.

Enjoy (if you dare):
