Signs. When they first show the alien walking outside with the video of the birthday party with the little kids looking out the window. They are showing it on the news and Merrill is watching the TV in the closet and the kids see the alien for the first time. I. WILL. NEVER. FORGET. THAT. SHIT!

Absolutely.  The lead up to that shot was brilliant.

TzTinkle - The first time I saw the person in the bear suit in The Shining.

It's so random and out of place. It shouldn't be horrific, but it is. Gotta credit Kubrick for his presentation of it.

 

fucking christ. i cannot even watch this. just remembering it, is giving me douche chills

 

anyone interested, i think the book explains what the scene is about and means.

Apparently there is an insinuation that Jack may have been sexually abusing his son. The person in the costume also has their ass exposed. Apparently there's a few bears scattered at interesting times in the movie linking them with his son

 

I dont approve of the animal choice.

During the interview he was reading a playgirl with an article about it. 


Rob Ager does some great Youtube film analysis of this movie. Will blow your mind, the stuff he sees. Here's one about the Bear man.

The Huluween film festival 5 mins shorts are pretty goddam good, LIPPY was insane.  The security guard chick is in a lot of good indie shit, she was with Tom Hardy in THE TAKE and she also grows weed in TOP BOY 

 

her character abd the the way she plays it in LIPPY is creepy AF

Yeah everyone jumped in the theater. That movie was pretty good until showing the alien up close. I feel they made a mistake there.
