For the third time today I bring you a new trailer for a film I saw at the Cannes Film Festival last year, this time for Rodney Ascher’s documentary Room 237, which takes a look at a variety of theories having to do with Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, many of which seem crazy, but what’s even crazier is that you just might start to believe some of them.

Here’s the opening paragraph from my Cannes review:

If you’ve ever been accused of “over-thinking” a film then Rodney Ascher’s Room 237 is for you. Come on in and begin the madness as no stone is left unturned when it comes to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining from the absurd to the strangely convincing.

You can read the full review here, but check out the latest trailer below, which pays homage to the original teaser trailer for The Shining, which I’ve also included at the bottom of this post.

Room 237 hits theaters and iTunes on March 29.
