When Toys go Bad: Horror and Legos®

Posted By Monica Valentinelli On January 27, 2008 @ 2:49 pm In Resources | 2 Comments

Sometimes the best in horror comes from the most unlikely of places; some of you might remember Franklin W. Cain’s Lego® Cthulu [1]. While building horror images with Legos® can be a lot of fun (my favorites are the Darth Maul Lego® Sculpture Kit [2] and the Viking Fortress against Fafnir Dragon) [3]Brick Films [4] knows that Legos® can also be used to animate your fear or (in this case) a horror comedy.

You can submit your own mini-Lego® film to Brickfilm or you can review the ones that other people submitted. This particular film is the award-winner from this past Halloween, but there are a ton of other short films on YouTube!

I also really enjoy artist Eric Harshbarger’s Lego® Sculptures [5], check out his Emily Strange Lego® Sculpture [6].

What are some of your favorite horror or dark fantasy Lego® sculptures and animated shorts? Post them here!

Happy howling!
