Amanda Seyfried Gets Cookin’ With Eerie Short ‘Dog Food’

Eerie, creepy, and perhaps bloody may be on your menu this Halloween season, and if you’re yearning for a morbid tale then Dog Food should be on your menu. The 18-minute short, which was the Vimeo Staff pick for today, centers on Declan (Gotham‘s Cory Michael Smith), an affable butcher who falls head over heels for a new customer (Amanda Seyfried).

His crush takes a backseat to the horrible discovery that his dog  Ralphie has gone missing. When the young woman invites Declan to dinner and serves him a glaringly suspect plate of meat, their intimate gathering leads to a surprising denouement (David Craig, who plays the woman’s roomie, also stars).

The project, which won Best Horror at Comic Con, has played in over 30 international film fests, and as much as I love Letters to Juliet (a guilty pleasure), twisted tales are near and dear to my heart. Check out the Brian Crano directed short below and feel free to comment below!
