‘The Chickening’ Remixes ‘The Shining’ With Fast Food, Nightmares

After watching “The Chickening,” you’ll never look at fast food chicken or Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” the same way again. The short comes from animators Nick DenBoer and Davy Force and remixes footage from Kubrick’s “The Shining” to create a new narrative — one involving Charbay’s Chicken, a volcano, an alien with long toenails, a talking index finger and two Run-D.M.C.-styled twin girls. Even if you’ve seen “The Shining” multiple times, you won’t be ready for what the intermittently-very-NSFW “Chickening” unleashes on your eyeballs.

You can learn more about the pseudo-trailer at “The Chickening’s” website. The short film actually debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, earning plenty of praise and bewilderment on Twitter.
