Appreciating Films: The Shining (1980) Trailer

The trailer of The Shining, that is of course my favorite film of all time, is my favorite trailer of all time. The trailer lasts for 1 minute and 30 seconds, in a still shot of blood pouring out of the elevators' doors while the credit is scrolling up.

It took the crew nine days to set up the shot, and Kubrick being a perfectionist that he was well known of only took three takes to be satisfied. That means twenty-one days of work went into this one minute and a half trailer that crystallized the best of The Shining. Enjoy! Oh and don’t forget to leave a comment with your favorite trailer just right below!

    All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
