Unusual Shining documentary Room 237 hits Blu-ray in September

IFC will release the thoroughly entertaining (not to mention odd) ROOM 237 on September 27th. I urge you to check it out if you haven't already, it's something special.

In 1980, Stanley Kubrick, who had earlier created landmarks in the genres of black comedy (Dr. Strangelove) and science fiction (2001: A Space Odyssey), released his masterpiece of modern horror, The Shining. Over 30 years later we're still struggling to unearth its hidden meanings. Rodney Ascher's wry and provocative documentary ROOM 237 fuses fact, fiction and speculation through interviews with both fervent fans of the film and scholars, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick's controversial classic.

Among the special features:

* "The mstrmnd Speaks: Commentary with Kevin McLeod." McLeod is a key figure in the online examination of Kubrick's film.

* "Secrets of The Shining," an hour-long panel discussion from the first Stanley Film Festival, an event at Colorado's historic Stanley Hotel, which inspired one-time guest Stephen King to write his novel.   

* 11 Deleted Scenes   

* The Making of the Music Featurette

* Mondo Poster Design Discussion with Artist Aled Lewis

* Trailers
