Posted on

Making gingerbread houses is a beloved holiday tradition, but chances are yours doesn’t have creepy twins or a bloody elevator.

One family created a replica of the haunted Overlook Hotel from The Shining, and posted photos of their so-good-it’s-scary handiwork on Reddit.

“We worked on and off for about two weeks,” agkeeling wrote. “My dad does all of the design from photos. We do one nearly every year – no duplicates.”

The confection has a green Rice Krispie treat hedge maze and interior rooms depicting famous scenes from the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film, including the famous “Here’s Johnny!” scene with Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall. The wallpaper was printed on edible paper, and the “blood” is melted Jolly Ranchers.
