  1. Am I the only one seriously confused? I started if over like 5 times and I'm just as confused as the first time watching..

  2. Don't know what happen to me.
    But I really like this channel.
    My old past that addicted to horror resurface again.

  3. I am but a simple soul, totally lacking in cinematographic sophistication, i.e. I haven’t the faintest idea what the rinkydink hell’s going on here…..

  4. He got crazy, killed wife and baby. Contunied living like this in his house. He hunted animals for food for himself and the poor dog.

  5. +Alter🤯 Wow mind Blowing!⚠️☢🔞 Spoilers in comments never read them first. I see alot ppl do that if you dont understand What you are about to/or already Watched. Read under the title is The description or Rewatch .Most great Shorts Are meant left open to your interpretation. Sadly Technology has taken away people reading and using their imaginations. This is a Pycholgical Horror genre. Please correct me if I am wrong @ +Kristen Kiebe (Hope I spelled that correctly since it wont allow me to copy &post the Creators name). Women have pretty dark minds as men. We just either do not act on those thoughts .Or know how to keep Secrets better. The Title sort of contradicts its self. Animals kill for food protection or are bred to be killers by humans.(Especially Dogs like American Pitbull Terriers here in the U.S or German Sheppard;Dobberman Pinchers the Nazis used a;nd even that cute Labrador Retriever chained ).Stephen Kings quote one of my Favorites That explains Humans. "There are Ghost ,Monsters and Demons". They exist and They live inside US. To the creator , Actors cameras, sound (or lack of) Makeup & the location .All of you did an excellent job showing just hints inside a Sociopaths mind , or Man that Snapped .This was very dark and Sick. Also very convincing because this does happen.👍👍🏆Thank you⚘⚘

  6. So . . . Something to do with his wife and child dying, which resulted in this guy going crazy? No idea on this one

  7. This Channel puts in so much effort to pump out some real quality content! It boggles my mind how they do not have millions of subscribers!!???! But douchebags like the Logan brothers do!?!?’v WTF ! Society is upside down! 🤔🙄🤣😂

  8. Why did I immediately sense cannibalism here? It showed a pregnant wife hanging laundry.. Bloody rotten meat.. And it kept showing a baby outfit and a bloody pacifier but no baby.
    Yes it's obvious he killed them but it just seems like he's eating their flesh somehow. Unless that's what they WANT US to not be sure about… Hmmm…..He has Cabin fever obviously. But did he eat one or part of one of them? What's he hacking away at inside?? Hmm hmmmmmmmm….?

  9. Don't like this one at all. The dog is way too thin. Hope they didn't starve it for the sake of this idiotic film!

  10. I'm glad to see diamond Dallas page is working. I have met him and he is a genuinely nice guy. He also looks alot like Kane Hodder

  11. I think this one is one of ALTER's weaker short films. The camera effect was really nice, giving the whole thing a nice vintage look. But the idea of a dude in the woods eating suspicious meat and having a dead family around him, he probably murdered … that's just too basic.

  12. As the camera pans across the table amongst the accumulatioin of filthy dishes and odds and ends there is a Playboy magazine and a Pulitzer Prize book called "So Human An Animal -How We are Shaped by Surroundings and Events" by René Dubos. I feel the meaning of the film can be derived from the subject matter of the book, the still shots of nature surrounding the house, the woman's decomposing body and the "death" of the infant.  

    The infant is symbolic of the future of mankind.  The phone that is disconnected, is symbolic of mankind's disconnect from each other, the man taking a bite of the meat and throwing it away is symbolic of mankind discarding nature itself in pursuit of technology. The woman, who appears to have been beaten about the face before death, could be symbolic further human disconnection. 

    The author Dubos explored the tenuous relationship between human and environment. "Humans adapt to their changing environments, therefore the quality of the enviroment is paramount in the determination of human health and well being". As a species, humans greatest weakness is our ability to adapt to and live under the most terrible circumstances. "Our society is highly expert in controlling the external world and even the human mind, but our relationships with other human beings and the rest of creation are constantly diminishing in significance". Dubos.

    Will mankind retain his humanity while participating in a system that destroys the spoils the earth and human relationships? This is the question we all must ask ourselves for the future of mankind is at stake.

  13. Ok so he killed her and was a pos psycho.. …there was nothing else to that story . Smh. The visuals werent even good , compelling, creative , etc.

  14. I thought I saw DDP.
    I knew it couldn't be DDP when I saw Alter.
    I clicked because it's Alter.
    I skimmed description, didn't see his name.
    Credits roll to reveal Diamond Dallas Paige!
    WTF

  15. I have seen this woman in 3 different movies today. Not planned. I really like her as an actress but shes not a big name actress you would expect to see everywhere not that she shouldn't be. It's so weird when it happens.

  16. My interpretation is that he murdered the wife and baby and he was a cannibal. I also believe the house was possessed or haunted because of the crying baby and the wife’s humming he hears and see’s even though he had already killed them both. Lets not forget the phone working while not being hooked up😬🤭Maybe the house being possessed is what drove him mad in the first place🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️

  17. I was already in position in bed to watch. Opened the back stand of my phone and lie down. "SNAP, I FORGOT TO READ THE COMMENTS!" 😂😂😂

  18. I’m actually surprised this channel doesn’t have 1mil as yet because I’ve been watching these all night. They’re pretty addicting 🤷🏻‍♀️👌🏼👌🏼

  19. Well that was short and a little shocking! My favorite kind! Some one slip a cog did he? That was good, but the sad dog on a chain was worse than the cannibal! Poor pooch!!

  20. It’s either pure cannibalism or he have some kind of mental illness. Maybe he blamed his wife for the death of their unborn child? Miscarriage maybe. Made him insane added the fact he might also killed his wife due to grief. Now he’s alone with his dog, eating the flesh of his wife so she can still be part of him. Sorry if this sounded a bit disturbing, just a thought tho, a weird and creepy one.

  21. It’s very well filmed, good atmosphere, etc, but I would have liked a few more answers. Did he kill the wife when she tried to call for help? (hence the holding of the disconnected phone to her ear?). Is he really eating her flesh, or is it just that the bloodied meat reminds him of the slaughter of his family, and that is why he throws away his plate?

  22. it’s true you know. bcs there’s a saying, “human that acts like an animal.” meaning that some people do behave like animals, like God didn’t give them a brain to think properly until they act psychotic or just magnificently dumb.

  23. Maybe it's more metaphorical than literal. Maybe it shows that some people can't control their basic urges and end up unintentionally devouring/hurting/maiming those they love in the process.

  24. I just want to tell you guys how much it warms my cold heart to see so many people loving my little short… I never could have imagined how great it feels to share something I created from scratch, from my dark imagination … something I wrote, directed, acted in and edited… with so many amazing horror lovers. But I couldn't have done it without my awesome NYU crew and the amazing Diamond Dallas Page who gave me so much confidence by believing in me. Also the Chiodo Brothers who donated a couple prosthetics and Mike Relm (look up his amazing youtube channel btw) for helping me with the sound design… Please share with your friends, on your social media… also, feel free to ask me any questions on my instagram or facebook messenger!

  25. Always wear a decent pair of headphones, you hear everything.
    His wife looked good enough to eat.
    Keep up the good work ALTER.
    Off to see the Sandman.

  26. Everyone is assuming that's his wife and child. . . but what if he's a drifter who murdered her and is feeding her to her own dog.

  27. I heard a laugh and a call

    I had enough for the fallen

    Time is right to us all and

    I drew a circle to call him

    Another man down

  28. He killed his wife and ate the baby.
    I think the title is implying it, since some animals will eat their children

  29. The telltale sign he was evil…that 🐕 dog of his didn't wag his tail or get excited to see him. Dead giveaway.

  30. Look you eat red meat and drink Budweiser, you gonna kill people. I am really surprised he didn’t smoke a cigar, while sitting there. And chain up the dog? Truly evil man. Excellent movie. He really reminds me of what I could have become; if I hadn’t changed my ways. I totally understood the guy.

  31. Atleast he shared some cheek meat with the dog mmmmm… Probably taste better than that beyond meat crap lmao! 🤣🤣

  32. Since some ppl are confused here’s my theories
    1. As what we see the man kills his family and eats the baby and feels guilty about it in the end and calls the police to confess
    Or
    2. Let’s dig deeper lol. As the title reads , his family maybe died of natural causes and he had to resort to survival by eating the baby but when throws the dog the meat the dog senses the child and begins barking which makes the man go crazy and remember and he was too attached to his wife and didn’t want to let her go which is why he kissed her but he knew he had to move on and do what he had to do which is calling the police
    Or
    3. This man was once happy with his beautiful wife living in a peaceful middle of no where house . His wife has a child which the man can’t stand and soon goes crazy . He kills the child and his wife commits suicide or maybe he killed her out of rage too. He begins to realize he’s all alone and there’s not much left. For survival he cooks his baby and eats it . He tries to feed the dog the baby but the dogs knows what’s up and begins barking which gives the man major flashbacks and he begins to feel guilty so he walks up to his rotting wife’s body kisses it and calls the police to confess his crime

  33. I started to watch this film but changed my mind when I saw the poor dog chained up.Don't think it was going to be any good.

  34. Shout out to that table. CLASSIC 1990 LaToya Jackson Playboy cover… and that book intrigued me, so I added it to my check out list (led me down a rabbit hole actually). Obv the bloody pacifier was the eeriest.

  35. Well done, very dark…I liked everything about it: the acting, cinematography, set design, sound and, of course, the story.

  36. Well… I’ll be damn… thought the dude look like Diamond Dallas Page so I clicked on it and yep it is him. Nice to see him do something else then rehabbing former wrestlers.

  37. Did she die in child birth and he consumed her and probably the baby, literally and by grief. He either didn't have a phone or didn't call for help in time? Shit I don't know……

  38. Oh the bloody Dodie did it for me and then aagh….. the rest as I not want to spoil on others, great movie was wondering if nx part
