Vivian Kubrick, daughter of Stanley Kubrick, in the editing room. At just 18 years old Kubrick directed the short documentary, Making “The Shining” a behind the scenes look at the making of her father’s iconic film.
“To me that is Robert Wise’s The Haunting, which was a big movie, beautifully directed, with the house built magnificently. And the other grand daddy is Jack Clayton’s The Innocents. I’ve always tried to make big-sized horror movies like the ones I grew up watching. Films like The Omen, The Exorcist and The Shining, the latter of which is another Mount Everest of the haunted house movie. I loved the way that Kubrick had such control over the big sets he used, and how much big production value there was. I think people are getting used to horror subjects done as found footage or B-value budgets. I wanted this to feel like a throwback.” - Guillermo del Toro
