Toy Story gets the Kubrick treatment

The Huffington Post reports: It is incredibly creepy when childhood artifacts are put into a darker, more adult context.

Being a huge fan of animation and cinema, Lambert started following Toy Story 3 Director Lee Unkrich on Twitter. The UK-based concept artist soon discovered Unkrich's love of all things Kubrick and especially The Shining, which inspired Unkrich to become a filmmaker.

Soon, the gears in Lambert's head began turning with an idea so depraved that you will never be able to watch Toy Story or The Shining the same way ever again.

Ladies and gentlemen, "Toy Shining":
