Of all the most intricate designs in film history, the hedge maze from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining stands out—not only is it a beautiful and intimidating design, but the maze itself is rather disquieting, particularly in the context of the film’s climax. Kubrick didn’t just utilize the outdoor hedge maze, but also a smaller replica, which Jack Nicholson hovers over during one of the film’s memorable scenes. And now the hedge maze (and its identical replica) have been replicated by MythBusters host Adam Savage, who painstakingly recreated the maze in this awesome video.

Neill Blomkamp
Neill Blomkamp sure is talking about every other Blomkamp project except Chappie, his new film hitting theaters next week. Mostly, he’s been talking about his plans for a new Alien movie, officially in development at Fox, and in between all of that Alien talk, he’s also admitted his errors with Elysium. It’s been a busy week for Blomkamp, who implied that his Alien project would ignore Alien 3 and Resurrection, the sequels to James Cameron’s more beloved original films. But now the director is backtracking, and he wants to make something clear: he’s not actually ignoring those films after all—not really, anyway.
