Stephen King, the horror maestro behind dozens of great and plenty of terrible novels, recently sat down for his first extended interview in 15 years and revealed himself to be just like your smart, political and odd uncle. Well, an uncle that really, really hates 'Room 237' and Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining.'
When you hear that 'Room 237' is a feature length documentary about Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining,' your first thought may be that it sounds like a glorified DVD bonus feature, but it's actually so much more. The film is a soap box for people who have who read waaay too much into Kubrick's horror masterpiece and have all kinds of nutty theories about what it all means. Consider it "conspiracy theory film criticism."
