Guillermo del Toro honors Stanley Kubrick in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019). We have two allusions to The Shining (1980), with a R.E.D. Room and the Pale Lady, seen frequently roaming the end of corridors.

(Top left) The Grady Twins become the Pale Lady (top right), while REDRUM (bottom left) becomes the Records & Evaluation Dept. (bottom right) – the same direction as the Boiler House.

The Conjuring 2’s director, James Wan, has acknowledged a Kubrick influence upon his filmmaking, especially the ultimate haunted house movie, The Shining (1980). At the beginning of The Conjuring 2 (2016), during the séance at the Amityville house (112 Ocean Ave), a Stanley Kubrick look-alike is seated to the right of Lorraine (Vera Farmiga, left) and Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson, center).

Blink and you’ll miss it. Towards the end, when the Ecto Containment System is shut down and the ghosts escape, keep and eye out for the billboard for Stay-Puft Marshmallows. The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is unmissable, heralding the form of the Destructor.

“Sub-creatures! Gozer the Gozerian, Gozer the Destructor, Volguus Zildrohar, the Traveler has come! Choose and perish!” – Gozer, Ghostbusters, 1984.

Check out the name of the mining company, Shandor Mining Co, named after the cult of Gozer leader, Ivo Shandor. Shandor was contracted as the architect for an apartment building at 550 Central Park West. He secretly designed the building to act as an antenna for pulling in and concentrating spiritual turbulence (Ghostbusters 1984 canon). In turn, Ivo Shandor is named after Anton Szandor LaVey (1930-1997), founder of the Church of Satan (est. 1966).
