more of Firth's delightfully demented animation!
30 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Dog of Man" is perhaps among Firth's more popular animated shorts as it now has over four million views on YouTube and seems to have been something of a hit when it originated on newgrounds (like much of Firth's earlier work). It's not too hard to see why it's gone somewhat viral; obviously the video's popularity stems from its demented imagery, particularly towards the end, and "WTF" atmosphere. People are just simply attracted to weird sh*t, myself included, and oftentimes they enjoy what they see. I mean, this short is not only genuinely bizarre, but also legitimately disturbing, filled with bloody violence, grotesque gore, and deadpan black comedy. It's as f*cked up and inventive as your average David Firth short, it will no doubt haunt you to a point of utter shock if you are the least bit frightened by body horror. There are certain visuals towards the end of this short that will never leave my mind, and that is a fact of life that both pleases and concerns me.
