Scaredy Fat

Colm McCready & SkelpieLimmer
A face painted as a vampire and plastic red gloved hands appear above a layer of popcorn

Scaredy’s working the late shift at the cinema. Tonight’s schedule? The horror movie sexual awakenings of yesteryear.

Stuffed with steamy recollections of Carrie and Candyman, Scaredy should be in ecstasy but evil horror host Count Calories keeps cutting in on the fun.

It’s time for Scaredy to face their fears and stop being such a big scaredy fat.

Come to the movies with Scaredy as they poke fun at fat and queer representation in the horror genre, asking what it means to love a genre that doesn't love you back.

We're gonna need a bigger shirt.
