It tells the story of Pancake Marion, an 18th-century Witch, who was burned alive for her 'blasphemous' ways. Her evil spirit returned whenever a protective flower (planted to keep her at bay) had wilted, or was picked by local children.

A young girl finds the flower, and thus begins a 22-minute hell ride into your darkest fears.

Shrove Tuesday won Best British Film at Horror UK's 28 Hours Later film festival,[3][4] Best Experimental Short at South Africa's Horror Fest V,[5] and Best Mythic Film at Vampire Film Festival,[6] New Orleans. The film has been screened at the New York City Horror Film Festival,[7] and The Spooky Movie Film Festival in Washington DC.
