Watch: 'Dog Food' Short with Cory Michael Smith & Amanda Seyfried
"You probably don't stock this in your shop." What better way to freak people out for Halloween than with something that is totally fucked up? If this short didn't have a Hollywood cast included, I probably would've skipped right over it (especially running at 18 minutes) but alas, here we are, sharing with you the one of the craziest shorts I've seen yet. Titled Dog Food from writer/director Brian Crano (@briancrano), the short stars Cory Michael Smith, Amanda Seyfried, David Craig and an adorable dog. Tip: don't watch this if you're eating, or about to start eating food anytime soon, as you may lose your appetite. Oh and I should say that, yes, the director is actually a dog owner/lover. Which might explain the way this ends. So have fun!
