Not at all familiar with Final Sacrifice, but if it's even close to as much fun to watch as Unhinged, I'm all in.

INCIDENT AT RAVENS GATE 1988

A young man, recently out of prison, moves in with his brother and sister-in-law to finish out his parole. They live on a farm in the outback and all of a sudden experience problems with their water and electricity. An elderly couple living nearby are fried to death in their home and people start hallucinating and going mad.

Quite worth the watch.

Hey Bloof! I just saw a wild 80's spoof you might like on Netflix (it's on youtube too). It's Kung Fury, it's 30 mins long. It's a spoof of the 80's action films, even appearing to be a VHS tape with tracking effects. It's totally over the top. The writer/director is the lead actor, and he really sells it. Though it's probably more a guy film

I loved it..again and again! Someone on the forum mentioned it last year as a youtube gem(?). I don't think there's one thing wrong with it.

There's things in The Shining you never knew you saw (I'd bet).

It doesn't make The Shining a better film, it just explains it, and also cranks you up to notice things in film.

I do believe some of the things are just the doc maker's opinion, but I found the doc more interesting than the film.

Here's a clip of it, explaining the bigwheel ride. I did not notice these things in the film.

Hey Sculpt, I saw ROOM 237 also. Back in my younger more carefree days, drank lots of beer and smoked quite a bit of weed, courtesy of an older room mate. However, I cannot begin to imagine all the chemical substances those people in this film ingested before watching and how they imagined all that. THE SHINING isn't perfect, but I still enjoy it.

I hear ya! I was never a big drinker, but I had many meaningful times with da smoke.

I'm kinda guessing here... do you mean the writer of the documentary must have been on drugs to come up with all that material on The Shining?

Well, I can't deny theories tend to be enhanced that way, but we can't dismiss any of the factual things he presented -- such as what's presented in the youtube video I posted: what the visuals are in the bigwheel scene. I think you'd have to be stone cold sober to notice those things.

Speculating on what things mean, that's where things can get, well, speculative, real fast.

The NASA material in the film is really flaunted in one's face. The (base/original) story hardly has anything to do with NASA/Apollo (seems to me). Seems to beg one to find a connection. Pointing to something outside the story of the film is a very bold insinuation, but he certainly documents a case for it. Interesting stuff.
