Toy Story vs. The Shining: The Mash-Up That Will Give You Heartwarming Nightmares (PHOTOS)

What do you get when you combine one of the cuddliest movies ever with possibly the creepiest one? Toy Shining.

Visual artist Kyle Lambert only recently saw The Shining and Toy Story 3, after which time he did what most people would do — think of a way to mash them up together. Oh, wait. Right. No one would think to do that.

Lambert brilliantly takes some of the most iconic scenes from the former using character from the latter. The result is seriously fun and utterly frightening, and you’ll never look at either movie the same way again.

    Lambert came up with the idea for Toy Shining earlier this year:

     

    "I began following Lee Unkrich (director of Toy Story 3) on Twitter (@leeunkrich). As well as his journey to the Oscars with Toy Story 3, Lee often tweets about his passion for Stanley Kubrick and the movie The Shining which inspired him to pursue a career in filmmaking. Having seen both The Shining and Toy Story 3 for the first time recently myself, I thought it would be cool idea to mash the two movies together as a fun side project."

    "It started off with a few notes on a post-it describing how the two movies could be combined and quickly grew into a 25 panel storyboard. Once I had sketched each composition I set about painting the panels with my iPad using the Brushes app. The project took around 2 months to complete in my spare time from idea to the finished storyboard."

    "Because I painted each panel using the Brushes app for iPad, I was able to export a videos documenting the process. I edited the clips together to show the whole series of paintings come to life. The video can be seen on the Toy Shining Video Page."

    "Coincidently, towards the end of the project I was invited to visit the Pixar Studio for the day and thought it would be a great opportunity to deliver a printed Poster version of the project to Lee in person. Unfortunately he wasn't at the studio that day, but has since received the poster, Tweeting..
