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).

Left: From The Conjuring 2 (2016). Lorraine (Vera Farmiga, left) and Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson, center), and, to the right, Kubrick’s doppelganger. Right: Stanley Kubrick on the set of The Shining ca. 1979.

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.

Cinema Symbolism 3 update….

Posted in Batman, Blog, Blog post, Cinema Symbolism, Entertainment, Film, Freemasonry, Gnosticism, Illuminati, Joseph Campbell, Movie History, Mysticism, Mythology with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 7, 2021 by robertwsullivaniv

Cinema Symbolism 3 is finished, and I am reviewing the final proof. Expected release date is March 2021. Stay tuned… Enjoy this teaser…

Harvey Dent is the arch-criminal Two-Face. No longer the white knight balanced out by the Dark Knight, Two-Face embodies dualism: good and evil, Fraggles and Doozers, order and chaos, personifying the double-headed god Janus. A flip of Two-Face’s coin determines whether his victim lives or dies. The address he holds the Gordon family hostage at the end, where Batman and Commissioner Gordon confront him, is 250 52nd Street, where Rachel died. Nota bene: 250 52, or 25052, is a palindrome characterizing extremities: love and hate, peace and war, life and death.
