At first glance, the scene seems brief and, quite frankly, somewhat forgettable given all the other intense imagery in Kubrick's classic. In the scene, Wendy Torrance Shelley Duvall is roaming through the halls of The Overlook Hotel with a knife when she approaches a door at the end of a long hallway. Inside, a man in a bear suit is performing fellatio on one of the Overlook's guests. Wendy seems to be thoroughly freaked out by this, and runs away.

He had fallen asleep on the couch while watching Die Hard, and as luck would have it, The Shining was the next movie to play. On the screen, a naked, bloated hag of a woman was shuffling towards him, mocking him with laughter as she stared into the camera. It was the dead bathtub lady from The Shining. He ran into my room in terror, tears streaming down his face. Such horror. Poor kid, he never got over that.

The classic is filled with moments, shots, and scenes wholly worthy of meticulous dissection. And one of those scenes is the famous Room scene, the one with the lady in the bathtub. For those of you who are at work or who just get overcome with the vapors at the sight of uncovered chest regions, here's the censored version.
