KEEN-wah – Short Film

It’s funny who they match you up with online…

It's date fright

It’s date fright!

Blind dates can be daunting – even more so when your date has dietary restrictions and is more than a little past his prime. Suzanne knows the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but will she be on the menu?

A comedy horror short with laughs in bitefuls.
