WAS STANLEY KUBRICK MURDERED?

LONDON – A new book asks the question: Was Stanley Kubrick murdered?

Stanley Kubrick‘s life was surrounded by a miasma of legend and rumor. His films are the rich breeding ground for OCD analysis, OCD analysis and some more OCD analysis; and now his death has become the subject of  a new book by Hardy Mantellance – Who Killed Stanley Kubrick?

The Stanley Kubrick scholar claims that the Spartacus director was done in by a fatal confluence of Masonic Satanism, poison and an unbalanced man who had been fatally damaged by watching Barry Lyndon every night for eighteen years. 

I spoke to Hardy Mantellance in her West London home. 

Stanley Kubrick suffered a myocardial infarction in his sleep shortly after completing Eyes Wide Shut. A myocardial infarction is relatively simple to provoke with the use of poison. Who do we know who uses poisons in all his films and had a deadly rivalry with Stanley Kubrick?  Steven Spielberg.

But Spielberg was Stanley Kubrick’s friend!

Until they began to develop the script for AI together, at which point a deadly enmity grew between them over the creative disagreement. Kubrick wanted to make a ‘good film’. After Kubrick’s death no one was there to stop Spielberg from making a ‘bad film’, exactly as he had always wanted.   

So you’re accusing Oscar winner Steven Spielberg of murder?

That’s what they want you to think.

Who’s they?

The Saturn Death Cult who Kubrick had so brilliantly exposed in Eyes Wide Shut. The Saturn Death Cult are a secret group made up of the elite from business, politics and celebrity. They perform ritual sex orgies which culminate in human sacrifice and their members include that old enemy of Stanley Kubrick, Jack Nicholson.

What?

The night Kubrick died Nicholson was overheard to say at a Lakers game, ‘We did it!’ At the time people thought he was referring to the Lakers victory, but it was only afterwards some right minded folk realised he was actually referring to the successful conspiracy to do away with the man who had forced Nicholson to say ‘Here’s Johnny!’ 78 times, even though his name is actually Jack.

So Nicholson murdered Kubrick?

Ha ha, how innocent you are! But ask yourself this, if Nicholson killed Kubrick, why was Nicole Kidman unable to contain her tears on the Eyes Wide Shut featurette?

Because she was sad at the passing of a man she admired.

Those were tears of joy. Following the orders of her Svengali like husband – Tom Cruise – whose own religious cult Scientology had just signed a pact with the Saturn Death Cult worth billions of dollars, Nicole Kidman had baked some cupcakes which were laced with a powerful chemical provided by Steven Spielberg and concocted in his ‘Temple of Doom’ laboratory deep in the Hollywood hills and placed in a Tupperware container bought from a Kmart by Jack Nicholson on the twenty fifth anniversary of the Apollo moon landings, moon landings which were faked convincingly by Stanley Kubrick who was as a reward given the right to make any film he liked, even Barry Lyndon.

The fact would be exposed in Capricorn One directed by Peter Hyams, whose silence was bought by being given the apparently peach job of making a sequel to 2001: a Space Odyssey, but the peach proved to be a poison apple and the film – 2010: the Year We Make Contact – was a critical disaster. Hyams (who grew up two doors down from Ryan O’Neal) spent the rest of his life watching Barry Lyndon on a loop and plotting revenge, a revenge that was only made possible by a coincidental meeting with Malcolm McDowell, the actor made famous by A Clockwork Orange, but who Stanley Kubrick had humiliated when he once, June 7th, 1978, asked if Malcolm had lost any weight, knowing full well that Malcolm had not. 

So Peter Hyams, Malcolm McDowell, Steven Spielberg, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise, the Church of Scientology,  Jack Nicholson and the Satan Death Cult all conspired to kill Stanley Kubrick?

It would be comforting to think so, wouldn’t it? But the truth is actually a lot darker. Shelley Duvall…

At this point my recording device cut out and the rest of the interview is lost. Coincidence? I don’t know. 

Hardy Mantellance’s Who Killed Stanley Kubrick? is available from Amazon and all good book stores.

3 ‘NEW’ KUBRICK FILMS TO BE RELEASED

LONDON – Three brand new Stanley Kubrick films are due to be released in the next five years, according to film producer and long-time Kubrick collaborator Jan Harlan.

The films – which have been prepared from the thousands of feet of unused footage and using earlier drafts of scripts – will officially be credited to Kubrick as director. Jan Harlan, who was also Mr. Kubrick’s brother-in-law, spoke exclusively to the Studio Exec:

Stanley always shot enough footage for every film to make two or three films on top of the one released. Many of these shots were simply repetitions of the same scenes, with slight variations. But some of this footage represented a wildly different version which can be pieced together into what is effectively a different film. Three films in fact.

The films to be released are: 

1. The Shindig: Reconstructed from an earlier draft of the classic Stephen King horror novel, The Shindig comes from the alternative takes Stanley Kubrick made Jack Nicholson do of The Shining in a lilting Irish accent.

JH: ‘The Shindig really is a delightful family comedy in which Jack O’Torrance arranges a party for all the old ghosts and magical topiary animals, helped by his son Danny and his invisible friend Tony, played by Frank Oz. It will challenge the views of everyone who thought of Kubrick as a pessimist.’

 2. Barry Rock On: The Thackery novel was originally filmed as a stellar rock opera, but after some abysmal test screenings, Kubrick got cold feet and took out all the songs, replacing them with a dour Michael Horden voice over.

JH: ‘BRO is wonderful 18th Century Rock Opera and a testament to its times, with performances by Shakin’ Stevens, Abba, The Sweet and Queen, who reused the theme song from the film ‘Barry (Saviour of the Universe)’ for the Flash theme.’

 3. Eyes Wide Open: Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman play self-made millionaires and private detectives Jonathan and Jennifer Hart who one winter in New York, find themselves in the midst of a conspiracy.

JH: ‘The funny thing here is our Hart to Hart reboot, the one you’ll see now, was the actual film Stanley intended to release, and therefore would have been his last film. However, Stanley had never acquired the rights, assuming he would get them later. When the film was complete, it turned out that Robert Wagner bitterly hated Stanley because he thought A Clockwork Orange wasn’t violent enough. With a deadline looming, Stanley had to re-cut the film and obfuscate or eliminate any reference to Hart to Hart, all in a mere two weeks, which explains the weirdness that Eyes Wide Shut became.

REVIEW: SPRING BREAKERS

REVIEW: SPRING BREAKERS – Harmony Korine shows us what Russ Meyer’s world would like if populated by the less endowed stars of Disney and Nickelodeon.

Showing a frenzied urge to break the constraints of their clean teen profiles, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine play a quartet of girls gone wild, who in their desperation to hit the beaches for Spring Break decide to turn their hands to armed robbery.

The partying proves as rough as their means of getting there and, after a run in with the law, they are bailed from jail by local musician and wannabe gangster Alien, played with grinning aplomb by Hollywood’s resident goof ball, James Franco, who has his own plans for the bikini clad waifs. Korine’s film is a hysterical and at times hallucinatory joyride of candy-colored tastelessness and cussed amoral hedonism. A generic hybrid, for the young lasses it’ll be a pussy riot Clockwork Orange, for the young fellas it’ll be a dribble fest and for their parents it’ll be the scariest horror film they ever seen.
