Watch 'The Shining' Recut As A Goofy Romantic Comedy Is Horrifically Funny

The Shining is possibly one of the creepiest films ever made, so it takes some skill to recut it into a feel-good romantic comedy, but that's what Robert Ryang did in this very funny reimagining.

The story changes from a writer going slowly insane in a haunted hotel, to a goofy comedy about a writer looking for inspiration and a young boy looking for a dad. It comes complete with Peter Gabriel's "Solsbury Hill" as a soundtrack, to add to the sense that it could be a new Richard Curtis movie.

It ended up winning the AICE (Association of Independent Creative Editors) Trailer Park competition in New York back in 2005. It's so good you kind of wish the film actually existed.
