Finally, someone solves "The Shining" + chickens = ???

Since Kubrick's death, the world has wondered about his rumored obsession with "remastering" The Shining in the same way that Lucas did his original trilogy.

Finally, a trailer for his magnum opus — albeit significantly more, well…chicken-based — is now available: The Chickening (SLYT)

This is so much better than anything in the history of cinema has ever had the right to be.

Damn it. I was going to post this. Fantastic Fest played this before Men & Chicken (which is awesome) last year. I didn't know that there was going to be a short before the movie and was very confused.

This is roughly a degree of magnitude more disturbing than the original movie.

Following up the Cyriak cat video with this makes me question whether I have truly awoken this morning.

Yeah, I don't blame him. That bear giving that dude head in the hotel room was so obviously just a guy in a bear suit.

That was a thing I watched, yes it was. Can't deny that I watched it.

Between this and the new Cyriac video I think I just self-induced a flashback.

Sweet holy jesus on a cracker. That was brilliant.

Not sure if I want to have a beer with the creator(s) or not. Probably not.

But what does Stephen King think of this?

That was incredibly well done, but I was expecting more breast meat. This is Captain Obvious, signing OFF!

It's only five minutes long. What the hell? I cleared time to watch the whole of "the Shining" as enacted by chickens and the video is only five minutes long? Credit for maximum weirdness…

I was bracing myself for it to devolve (evolve?) into "Too Many Cooks" the entire time.

That's a compliment.
