Saddened though we were to learn that Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman would close up the Mythbusters shop after 14 seasons, we have every reason to believe the science and engineering duo will close out their Discovery tenure with bang. Yes, in more ways than one. In the meantime, Savage has begun sharing photos from the last day of shooting, and it looks as explosive as it does … well, something!

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.

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.
