8-Bit ‘The Shining’ Is A Must-Watch!

8BitShining

In the past, Stephen King’s been pretty vocal regarding his feelings on Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of his novel, The Shining, but I think this is something even he could get behind.

The latest entry in Cinefix’s “8-Bit Cinema” series takes on the iconic thriller, adapting it into an 8-bit video game. I really wish something like this actually existed, if only so I could take control of Jack and unleash a can of pixelated whoopass on my wife and kid. I really think I need help, you guys.

While I work out my issues, feel free to check out the amazing three minute-long video after the jump.
