WATCH: “Snack Attack”: An Urban Legend Brought to Irresistible Life


A charmingly delivered cautionary tale about making assumptions

It’s a simple story — after tussling with a stubborn snack vending machine, an elderly lady simply wants to enjoy her cookies in peace while she waits for her train. If only that troublesome millennial with the headphones wouldn’t think they were his!

She looks a little like Mother Angelica, doesn’t she?

Snack Attack is a 5-minute animated short film based on an urban legend said to have originated in Europe. It was produced by actor Eduardo Verástegui’s Metanoia Films and Arc Productions (Formerly Starz Animation in Toronto). And it’s just great — deserving of all of its accolades, which you can read about, here.

But enjoy the movie, first.
