Pre-Halloween Horrors! week concludes at Trailers from Hell with writer-director Adam Rifkin introducing Stanley Kubrick's tour-de-force in domestic horror, "The Shining."

Stanley Kubrick's stylish adaptation of Stephen King's popular novel was pilloried by disappointed King fans who railed against its infidelity to the book, but it went on to become the hit that Kubrick was looking for after the commercial failure of Barry Lyndon. Now, of course, thanks to the new documentary Room 237, we know that the whole movie is an elaborate apologia for Kubrick's complicity in faking the moon landing!
