Pop that corn, folks. It’s time for a scary movie!

If you love movies, but are still a little apprehensive about going back to a theater, George has you covered with a few ways to turn your living room, den, man cave or she shed into a home theater worthy of Jack Torrance.

First up, if you already have an awesome television but want more immersive sound at an affordable price, check out the JBL Bar 2.1 Deep Bass Soundbar. This soundbar and subwoofer fills the room with up to 300W of total system power, so the only thing you’ll need to be concerned about is if your family or neighbors complain about the volume.

The 6.5-inch subwoofer delivers deep, thrilling bass that you can feel. And, you can stream all your songs and movies from your phone or tablet with ease. It’s also super simple to set up with an HDMI or optical cable to your TV, so you can get hooked up and ready to go faster than the Grady twins can say, “Come play with us.”

Want to set that spooky Overlook Hotel mood without upgrading to smart light bulbs?

Wemo makes it simple to swap out your existing light switches with WiFi Smart Dimmers that let you adjust the ambiance in your room without having to get off the couch.

Let’s say you want to recreate that true big screen movie theater experience in your own home. Did you know that Oculus Quest 2, the ultimate virtual reality gaming console, can also double as a virtual movie theater? Much like a giant hedge maze, this is something you have to see to believe. Fire up the headset and you have access to your favorite streaming services and a bunch of other apps so you can get that iMax experience, but in your favorite soft pants and without spending a fortune on popcorn.

P.S. If you’re confused about all those movie references, you might want to watch the video and get in on the jump scares. Don’t forget, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
