The Daily Slap is willing to believe anything, especially if it's been on the internet. But this it had to swallow with hard liquor. Now we all know the moon landings were faked, otherwise we'd have seen Elvis there, right? Right. But we didn't know Kubrick did it, and then made an allegorical mea culpa blockbuster to keep the US Government from bumping him or his family off. They didn’t tell us that in film school.
We thought it was just a film about a guy who got cabin fever after being possessed by Jack Nicholson.
The evidence is stark. In Stephen King's novel, the haunted room is 217. In the film, it's 237. The moon is, on average 237,000 miles from the earth. OK, there wasn't a room 237,000 at the hotel, so we have to cut him some slack. Oh, and the distance is actually more like 238,855 miles, but Room 238 was booked and 239 wasn't en suite, so…
Jack's son, Danny is even wearing an Apollo 11 jumper. Proof, in knitwear form, that the director faked the moon landings.
Then there's those spooky twins. They weren't in the novel. There was only one slain kid in the book. Kubrick could have gone for two twins because they are creepier than one twin, but we prefer to believe it was a clear nod to NASA's Gemini program.
And as for the stuffed bears in the movie and the man in the bear suit…. Well, Russia, duh.
It's all so obvious now, isn't it?
