The Grand Overlook Hotel is THE Best Wes Anderson-The Shining Mashup

Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick are both filmmakers known for their attention to detail and their devotion to meticulously arranged, almost otherworldly environments. Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and Kubrick’s The Shining are both films that feature hotels with some very specific quirks. Filmmaker Steve Ramsden noticed this, and decided to bring the two together for “The Grand Overlook Hotel,” a trailer that takes Ralph Fiennes’ Monsieur Gustave and places him right in the middle of Jack Nicholson’s murderous rampage.

It’s wonderfully constructed, and I was particularly impressed by how Ramsden married a shot of Danny Torrance running through the hedge maze to a shot of Bill Murray pulling up in a car. It’s a lot of fun, but it’s still not the best Wes Anderson horror movie…
