If you’re a fan of David Lynch’s blue-hued universe of dreamy songs, creepy characters, and mysterious acts of violence, the Internet has a strange treat for you.
Richard Vezina has created a Lynchian mashup of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. The result, Blue Shining, is one heck of a trippy dreamscape.
The video loosely follows the narrative of The Shining but splices key scenes with nuggets from Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet, as well as a whole slew of other Lynch masterpieces. But the video doesn’t just cut away to seemingly connected scenes. Rather, it’s a dazzling collage of sound and imagery, layering scene onto scene and world onto world.
And if you’re wondering, well, why? The creator of the video has a simple explanation.
Offers Vezina: “The only goal of this mash-up is to entertain people. David Lynch has his own unique style, and I integrated excerpts from his movies to the Shining for fun only. Kubrick and Lynch are both geniuses, and their movies are self-sufficient. I’ll say it again: do not take this mash-up seriously!”
Or as Lynch might put it, the owls are not what they seem.
