The first look at the live action ‘Clifford the Big Red Dog’ is absolutely horrifying

Who asked for this?

The first teaser for the live-action adaptation of Clifford the Big Red Dog is the stuff of nightmares.

The poor pup looks like a giant Labrador Retriever puppy dipped in blood, with a bizarrely frozen expression that sees only a handful of muscles moving at a time. The brief clip opens with a lineup of real dogs, which is supposed to be a joke about the dog’s size, when really it just highlights how uncanine-like this poor dog really is.

Watch the teaser in full below.
