Adult Swim Terrifies Audiences With Surprise Film Disguised as a ‘Yule Log’
If you recall a few years back Casper Kelly made a collection of late-night, faux infomercials. These ranged from a popular one titled Too Many Cooks, and a terrifying one titled Unedited Footage of a Bear that acted as a late-night pharmaceutical commercial. As they progress, they end up becoming more and more disturbing. Kelly’s latest work, Fireplace aka Yule Log, is a surprise horror film that plays out around a Yule Log burning in a fireplace.
Fireplace/Yule Log surprised audiences last night by going from a faux Yule Log fire to a full-on, feature-length horror movie. Best of all, this horror film is effective on all fronts. It jumps from supernatural to slasher to home invasion to killer log exploration and then back again. What makes Yule Log that much more interesting and worthwhile is the ingenuity around its production. For most of the film the camera is entirely in one spot before going full Evil Dead and flying around the room.
Yule Log is also very much about its practical effects gore. The first bit of this shocks you by bashing someone’s face off, in full unflinching gory glory. Much like the Infomercial series, Yule Log is also very funny, and never takes itself too seriously. I’m also a huge fan of how Yule Log jumps from dread-filled to gut-busting.
Ever since Kelly created those creepy Infomercials, I have been a huge proponent of him getting his own horror film. I’m happy to see that he is excellent even in a feature format. It is also an added hilarious bonus that Kelly wrote the title track for “The Fireplace” as a nice end credit treat.
“Last year during the holidays I was watching a yule log video and suddenly I had an image of legs walking past the fire, just slightly out of focus, and hearing dialogue off screen.” Kelly said. “I loved the mysteriousness of that, and a story started to form. I’m so grateful to Adult Swim for taking the plunge with me, and I’m so proud to have made their first live-action film!”
Fireplace/Yule Log is as hilarious as it is chilling and its ability to jump between those two sentiments is a real accomplishment and keeps you on your toes. It takes some talent to be rife with dread and also to be a knee-slapper. Fireplace/Yule Log is unnerving and darkly funny all with a special kind of fantastic subversion. Kelly has a bright future ahead of him in horror. Fingers crossed he works with the likes of Blumhouse or Atomic Monster next.
You can stream Fireplace/Yule Log now on HBO Max.
Gunship’s Latest Video Filled With Haunting Imagery Generated by Artificial Intelligence
“What happens after we die?”
That was the question posed to artificial intelligence in order to make up footage for Gunship’s latest video for Ghost. The new song also features Power Glove. The footage that the AI generates based on that question is completely haunting.
“Enjoy this deep dive into a neon cybernetic future where a ‘Ghost’ is your soul, cyborg bodies are merely interchangeable shells and the concept of ‘I’ may no longer mean much at all.” Gunship wrote.
The imagery pairs well with the song and jumps between being outright beautiful and filled with horrors.
The entire video is mesmerizing. Don’t miss it and let us know what you think.
John Carpenter’s First Track From ‘Halloween Ends’ Has Arrived
Halloween is here again, y’all. David Gordon Green’s trilogy is coming to an end with Halloween Ends and with it we get another rad chapter of music from John and Cody Carpenter. The first track off the album titled, Procession is a great first track from the album.
You can head over to Sacred Bones to place your order on one of many variants of the album.
The score to Halloween Ends description is as follows.
The unmistakable mix of software synths, vintage analogue equipment, and live instrumentation is utilized once again to provide the signature sound of Halloween. However, rumors have it that Halloween Ends is going to be somewhat different from the previous two films in the trilogy. With that comes an expanded soundtrack, one that matches the tone of a tangible rise in stakes and conveys the climatic feel of the film. The soundtrack of the third installment broadens old themes whilst creating new ones in an effort to bring renewed life to one of the most epic horror scores ever written. Carpenter elaborates, “The main themes have all been passed down from the original Halloween. We have refined them and created new themes for new characters.”
The synopsis for Halloween Ends goes like this:
Four years after her last encounter with masked killer Michael Myers, Laurie Strode is living with her granddaughter and trying to finish her memoir. Myers hasn’t been seen since, and Laurie finally decides to liberate herself from rage and fear and embrace life. However, when a young man stands accused of murdering a boy that he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that forces Laurie to confront the evil she can’t control.
Halloween Ends arrives in theaters October 14.
