If David Lynch directed The Shining

2.jpg

Stephen King has never attempted to mask his dislike for Stanley Kubrick’s big screen adaptation of The Shining. But would he have enjoyed it more if David Lynch had been directing? 

We're not sure - but this video edit from Richard Vezina, flawlessly managing to insert Lynchian hallmarks into the 1980 horror film, is a tour de force of weirdness to say the least: Dune, Blue Velvet and Eraserhead are just some of the works that manage to ramp up the creepy factor.



The masterwork follows on from last year's similar mashup which showed what it might have looked like had Lynch directed Return of the Jedionly this edit goes above and beyond by splicing footage from various films. Vezina has clearly put some hours in.

All work and no play...
