‘View From the Overlook’, A Fascinating Look Behind the Scenes of the Making of ‘The Shining’

View From the Overlook” by veteran filmmaker Gary Leva of Leva FilmWorks is a masterfully crafted thirty-minute documentary that provides a fascinating look behind the scenes of Stanley Kubrick‘s chilling 1980 film The Shining. The short film was originally developed as a companion to the movie’s Special Edition DVD release and includes interviews from the remarkable cast and crew.

In 1966, Stanley Kubrick mused to a friend about his desire to make “the world’s scariest movie.” In 1980, he did it.
