Toy Story and The Shining: Is Sid’s Bedroom like the REDRUM?
When it comes to taking care of toys, Toy Story’s bully Sid has a history of homicide. But that’s not all, his obsessive tendencies are a lot like Stephan King’s character Jack Torrance in The Shining. That’s why in Toy Story, animators installed the same carpet in the corridor to Sid’s bedroom as the carpet in the Shining.
In this scene we see Danny riding his tricycle down the hallway to Sid’s Room, I mean REDRUM, which of course spells Murder backward.
