TrustMovies first saw The Shining during its initial run in Queens, along with a sneak preview of Dressed to Kill. (Or it might have been the other way around: he can't remember now which film was the sneak preview.) In any case, talk about memorable double bills! He does remember how impressed he was with the De Palma film; with the Kubrick, not so much. And when he saw The Shining again, maybe 10 or 15 years later, he found it even less effective on any level, or as any kind of genre movie.
Barry Nelson's symbolic hard-on (above), a nincompoop alert will probably be flashing. And when you learn what happens when you project Kubrick's film forward and another print in reverse -- at the same time! -- you may be ready to cry uncle. (Die-hard Kubrick/Shining fans will not, but most of the rest of us will.)
