Couple makes a horror film to reveal their baby’s gender

Judy and Gavin Holt are expecting their second child! And while you may not know their names, you’ll definitely remember their gender reveal video.

For the uninitiated, a gender reveal is pretty much what it sounds like—a social media post that announces the fetus’ sex so that a pregnant person can disseminate the news easily to their friends and loved ones. Some people throw gender reveal parties. Some people do nothing at all. But this husband and wife wedding photographer duo used their equipment to film something over-the-top instead of posting a Facebook status or a sonogram pic like a mere mortal might.

As a sequel to their also-viral 2015 pregnancy announcement, the couple directed a four-minute horror film co-starring their toddler to announce the new baby’s gender, and it is… chilling.

Things pick up when they ask a Ouija board about the baby’s gender and get wilder from there:

Where are the children from the driveway??!?
