Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’ is a film that has rightfully become a pop culture staple, so it comes as no surprise that the horror movie has inspired a myriad of tributes and products. From baby photographs re-enacting scenes from the cinematic masterpiece to coat hangers shaped like Jack Torrance’s infamous axe, people seem to be endeared by ‘The Shining’ and want to show their appreciation for the Stephen King story in any manner they can.

Most notable about the ‘The Shining,’ as with most Stanley Kubrick films, is its beautiful cinematography, which engraves memorable images into viewers’ minds. Many artists have replicated scenes, such as the encounter with the murdered twin girls and Jack Torrance peeking through a door he chopped with an axe, as exercises in composition, as well as to pay homage to the legendary director.
