To help celebrate the 35th Anniversary of The Shining, photographer Davide Luciano and food stylist Claudia Ficca recreated key elements of the horror film with food.

From a pie that reminds us that “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” to REDRUM recreated with alphabet soup, the photo series may scare you into having an early lunch. Just stay out of the pea maze.

McDonald’s Frightening New Mascot ‘Happy’ Placed In A Few Classic Horror Movies

HAPPY-HEADER

Recently, McDonald’s unleashed Happy, an anthropomorphic cardboard box, to help promote Happy Meals. And… How do we put this?… He’s kinda creeping everyone out.

But just how terrifying is this new ambassador of boxed meals? Well, to find out, we went ahead and placed Happy in a few classic horror films, to see if he’s a suitable replacement for a mass murderer, a devil baby, and a killer shark. You be the judge…

TV Dinners, An Illustration Series of Fictional Meals From Television and Movies

mcdowells-menu

TV Dinners is a fun illustration series by artist Kyle Platts. It’s part of a project by Food Republic that asks artists to “dream up a fantasy restaurant, then devise a menu for it.”

London-based Platts chose to visualize a few fictional foods from television and movies. Whether a McDowell’s combo meal from Coming To America, or a yummy stallion heart from Game of Thrones — the drawings might make you yearn for some cartoon grub while you queue up some Netflix.

Watch ‘Machete’ Star Danny Trejo Make Bread Animals

danny-trejo

You may recognize Danny Trejo as the star of Machete, or perhaps another movie where he kills a lot of people. And if you ever wondered, as I often do, what Machete does during his downtime, Nerdist has some insight.

Danny Trejo’s Breadanimals visits the action hero during a break from his machete-wielding schedule, to watch him bake some cute bread animals.

From a sourdough turtle to a brioche alligator — Trejo’s creations are as adorable as they are delicious-looking. Just don’t tell him we said that.

Balm Chicky Balm Balm, ’70s Adult Film-Inspired Lip Balm

balm-chicky-balm-balm

It was a simpler time of feathered hair and over-the-top sexual innuendo, and the bassline was unmistakable. Now, the soundtrack to the ’70s can be spread across your lips.

Balm Chicky Balm Balm is here to help keep your lips moistened while celebrating the certified-groovy days of adult films. And while the title sets the mood, Balm Chicky’s stars provide the action. Flavors/talent includes Juicy Melons, Sweet Baby Ginger, Huge Cucumber, Wild Mountain Honey, and Hot Chocolate Love.

Each tube contains three-times as much balm as your typical lip balm. And, much like the adult film stars of the time, Balm Chicky is 100%-natural. But the real scene-stealer is each tube’s patented Friend End™. Placed on the opposite end of the tube is a separate stash of balm with a flip-cap – just the right size for the finger of a friend in need.

Balm Chicky Balm Balm is available at The Foodiggity Shop.
