Beautifully Creepy

Did Stephen King stage this?
Is Stanley Kubrick channeling?
Love it, whatever, particularly Ma-Dam on the right with the "Welcome to my hotel" look.

More like Kubrick I think

More specifically, The Shining.

Draw the curtain, please!

This is such an unusual scene! As if they were on a stage, even the rocking chair looks like a prop.

Even with the exposed beadboard, it had to have been a substantial home at some point.
