'Tis the season for rendering architectural icons out of cookies and plotting to murder your family in a remote mountain hotel. Now the two best things about Christmastime are together at last.

Over at r/movies, eudicotyledon says his family made this incredibly disturbing yet very wonderful gingerbread version of the Overlook Hotel from the film The Shining (which Stephen King actually based on the real-life Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, although the film's exteriors were filmed here). Some of the details, as well as the edible materials they used, are just stunning!
