Hawkins Family Yule Log Video

Many of us have thrown a yule log video up on the TV or computer during the holiday season—especially those who don’t have a fireplace at their disposal. Usually the video is just a few logs crackling away. Sometimes they may include music. And every once in a while, they come with a slight twist such as being set in various Marvel superheroes’ homes or including Parks and Recreation‘s Ron Swanson, Nick Offerman, quietly sipping whisky by the fire.

But this year, one yule log video takes things to very strange and unexpected places. The Hawkins Family Yule Log video begins simply, with a shot of the living room and Christmas tree and decorations before zooming in on the logs ablaze. The logs crackle and pop like any other yule log video for a good half hour or so. But eventually things begin happening around the fireplace that transform the basic holiday season video into a little horror movie of sorts.

Continue below to check it out.

The video is written and directed by Edmond Hawkins, and the cast includes someone horror fans may recognize, Lauren Ashley Carter, who starred in The Woman, Jug Face, Pod and Darling among others.

If you’re just interested in seeing the parts when the yule log video becomes something more, you can find the times to jump to and what happens below the full cast listed under the video. Be warned, however, that these descriptions do spoil what happens. If you’d rather avoid spoilers just do what I did and skim a few seconds ahead at a time until something happens, watch, then repeat.
