Powerful Short Film Likened To Black Mirror Has Everyone Saying The Same Thing

Powerful Short Film Likened To Black Mirror Has Everyone Saying The Same Thing

Everyone is saying the same thing about an unsettling short film, which has drawn comparisons to dark sci-fi series Black Mirror.

Casa de Carne was written and directed by Dustin Brown and whether you're a carnivore or vegan, the movie offers an interesting look at our eating habits with an extreme farm-to-table setup.

There's an age-old argument against meat-eating that you've probably heard before: would you kill the animal you're consuming?

In Casa de Carne, that premise is put to the test. You can watch the movie below:

The short film sees Eric, played by Joe Lemieux, visit a new, swanky restaurant with friends.

Do you know the kind, the ones that brag about having a farm-to-table, 'full circle' dining experience?

Well, at Casa de Carne that's true.

Eric is then led to a backroom, aprons up, and is given a knife.

He's then locked in a small white room with a pig and you can pretty much infer what happens next.

Cut to Eric, with a plate full of ribs and a bit of blood on his neck and you can see why viewers are a little more than unsettled by the film.

With people taking to the comments section on YouTube to share their views.

One user wrote: "THEY SHOULD MAKE ONE FOR THE DAIRY FARMS."

While another added: "Interesting concept! Thank you for creating and sharing this.

"I personally won't contribute to animal exploitation anymore and I think it's great that more and more people become much more conscious about what they eat."

One user even said: "I’m now vegetarian this video worked....thanks so much. I’m been trying so hard to be vegetarian and keep failing but after this I won’t fail again."

A fourth added: "This is an amazing short film. It really really makes you think. Every living being in those factory farms has a personality, emotions, and is capable of being loved and loving you. Yet we slit their throats for 15 minutes of taste."

The short film certainly does make you think but that didn't stop people being distracted by the waiter, with one person adding: "Why does the waiter simultaneously seem like he's a villain leading the guy to a torture chamber, and that one person who gives the secret agent all of their cool gadgets?"
