‘The Shining’ Hedge Maze Perfectly Replicated by Adam Savage of ‘MythBusters’

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.

It was a debate that had raged since 'Titanic' hit theaters 25 years ago: did Rose leave Jack to die by not letting him up on the board as they floated in the ocean.

Others argue that they could have at least tried to fit work it so both of them could have survived. But would it have actually worked? 'Mythbusters' to the rescue!

If you were like us, it probably took every ounce of restraint not to scream at the theater screen when Jack sacrificed himself and let Rose have that door-raft all to herself in 'Titanic.' There was totally enough room on that raft for both of them! James Cameron says that's not so, and he's teaming up with the 'Mythbusters' to prove it.
