The Shining was one of the films that helped put Stephen King movie adaptations on the map. Jack Nicholson was superb in that film and it was scary as hell. Still, I happened to have liked the 1997 TV mini series adaptation better.
As far as I know, we never really got any good horror movie games on the Atari 800. But if we had gotten some good horror games for the system, they would have been very much like this version of The Shining, done in the old Atari 8-bit style by Pippin Barr.
Adam Savage is always working on some kind of cool project. The man never seems to slow down. For a recent feature on Tested, Adam designed and built an impressively accurate replica of the hedge maze from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.
The maze model from The Overlook Hotel is only seen briefly in the movie, but Adam still managed to use reference screenshots from the film to painstakingly recreate it.
We have a whole category of this website dedicated to geek wear, and while much of what we post is amusing, how much of it would you actually be willing to wear?… and I mean in public, and not GenCon public… real public.
For some reason, I don’t remember The Shining playing out exactly this way. But then again, I had to close my eyes once the blood started pouring out of the elevator and that wrinkly naked lady showed up.
I sincerely hope that Princess Peach uses her umbrella like a baseball bat and whacks Mario over the head in the next panel.
