@ Screenland Armour
The Shining is pretty much everyone's favorite scary movie. Why? Because it is actually scary. I think it is the scariest movie I've ever seen. No matter how many times I watch it, Jack Nicholson shocks me. It's a true classic, that rises above the horror genre. Screenland Armour featured a Stanley Kubrick film every Monday, for the entire month of January. So, honestly, I lucked into the honor of hosting this!
At the last few Slaughter events I noticed one of the regular attendees, Gary Cooper, had gone above and beyond to help out. For our December screenings, he made the 'Christmas Body Bag'! Yes, it was a real body bag. He put a blow up doll inside and the wrapped it with Christmas lights. It was the perfect photo-op. I asked him what ideas he had to make The Shining a more interactive experience. Gary made a door prop, that looked as if Jack had just busted through with his ax and yelled, "Here's Johnny!" We also gave away a prize pack that included a copy of the film on DVD, Stephen King's book and a few other indie horror shorts. We put the lucky room key 237 under a random seat and whoever sat there, was our winner!
