Heeeere’s Woody! Kyle Lambert Mashes ‘Toy Story’ with ‘The Shining’

The third Toy Story movie went to some dark places, but it didn’t go all the way to the alcoholic murder hotel. Artist Kyle Lambert rectifies that obvious oversight with his digital paintings, which cast Pixar’s talking toys as characters from Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic The Shining. See what happens when all work and no play makes Woody a dull toy.
Lambert explains that he created this series after reading Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich’s tweets about The Shining, which Unkrich says inspired him to become a filmmaker. After creating these paintings on the iPad Brushes app, he printed a poster of the entire series, which he gave to Unkrich. Fortunately, he’s also released all 25 images online.

What’s fantastic about this series isn’t just Lambert’s ingenious use of the toys — especially the Barrel of Monkeys as the blood flood. It’s also that he included all sorts of small details: Pixar mascot Luxo Jr., Room A113 (after the CalArts classroom often referenced in Pixar films), even a box from the ubiquitous Pizza Planet. However, I don’t care if it’s Woody who goes on the murderous rampage; no one is ever going to convince me that the lazy-eyed baby doll is anything but creepy.
