The Shining isn’t technically a Christmas movie, but it does take place over Christmas. So I guess it’s fitting that a family took a gingerbread house to the extreme and created this incredible, edible, re-imagining of the Overlook Hotel from “The Shining.” According to the uploader, the hotel and its guests have been created using gingerbread, icing, fondant, candy, or Rice Krispie Treats. (With quinoa and sugar on the roof.) This is just impressive on every level. Also terrifying. Please never leave me alone with a bunch of gingerbread men in rural Colorado. [Reddit]

UPDATE: The gingerbread house was created by the family of horror directors.

Here’s the trailer for their latest film. If they’re half as good at making movies as they are at making gingerbread houses, they must be pretty good at making movies.
