Movies and Inspiration

During the course of casual reading, I discovered something that I hadn't known before. This iconic image from Stanley Kubrick's The Shining

was inspired by this 1967 photo by Diane Arbus

If you didn't know the top photo was from a horror movie, wouldn't the real-life girls at the bottom look creepier than the movie ones?
