New Poster For The Documentary, Room 237


In Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic The Shining, Scatman Crothers’ chef Hallorann warns Danny Lloyd’s Danny to stay the hell away from room 237 of the Overlook Hotel — which turns out to excellent, if ignored, advice.

But while room 237 is to be avoided, the new documentary Room 237 is a must-see. The work of first-time director Rodney Ascher, the film showcases the theories of five obsessive Shining fans as to what Kubrick really intended with his Stephen King adaptation and features footage from both that snowy chiller and many others.

Room 237 opens theatrically on March 29 and will also be available on VOD, SundanceNOW, and other digital outlets from that date.

  1. Great poster. And an excellent doc – a great investigation in to obsession as much as a film about The Shining. I was lucky enough to see it at the London Film Festival last year. John Landis was in the audience and pulled-up the producer on using clips from his movies without having bought rights… I think Landis was ribbing him in good humour… I think!
