I am aware that some people might absolutely loathe the horror/comedy hybrid "Stitches" and that's a perfectly reasonable reaction. Is it a great movie? Well, it certainly won't be picking up any Oscars. But as sheer lunacy, I am quite in love with this over-the-top bit of ridiculousness! Filmmaker Conor McMahon displays an ample appreciation for the cheesy splatter-fests of yore. In fact, this seems to be a throw-back to the campy horror films that flooded the video market in the eighties. He takes a supremely silly premise, in this case a murderous clown who has been reanimated from the afterlife, and runs with it. With copious amounts of humorous gore, each retribution killing is staged to be more outlandish than the last. Nothing is real. The effects are comic at best and the mechanics of the deaths are ludicrous (forget logic, anatomy, or basic biology and enjoy), but the movie absolutely revels in its own madness. Some might complain that the film isn't scary enough, but I'll contend that it's just right. I didn't need it to scare me, just entertain me. It is pure unapologetic fun. My head tells me I'm crazy for liking "Stitches," but the heart wants what the demented heart wants!

Comedian Ross Noble plays Stitches The Clown, the worst investment a parent could make for a child's party. We meet this low-rent entertainer as he embarks on a gig for Tommy's eighth birthday. His routine is underwhelming, to say the least, but the kids in attendance are monstrously out-of-control. Things take a dramatic turn when the clown meets his untimely demise. Years later, a teenaged Tommy (Tommy Knight) is still haunted by the memory of that fateful day. Despite his better instincts, he decides to once again host a birthday party in an effort to connect with his unrequited love.

Stitches (Ross Noble) is a child's party clown. It doesn't take long for a group of sugar high rambunctious ten year old kids to kill him in a freak dishwasher accident. From ancient Druid/Egyptian clown ritual we know that a clown's spirit doesn't rest if he doesn't finish the party. Six years later, another birthday is held for Tommy (Tommy Knight) and our clown is back for revenge.

This was a fun film, reminding me of many of the 80's cult classics. The killer has personality. The slasher aspect is done in a diverse and enjoyable fashion. While the killing is going on, the film cuts to another scene that "mirrors" the situation. I love slasher film that have a little "artistic" value.

The special effects were cheap, Troma style by design to exemplify the clown aspect.

Parental Guide; F-bomb, brief sex and nudity (nipple slip). Good Redbox rental.

This movie is great. It is a combination of horror and comedy. If you are a die hard horror fan, then this movie may not be for you. But if you like the Child's Play genre, then this is right up your alley. It combines wit and humor with some horrific scenes. The violence in this movie is of the cartoon-ish nature. But when you look at the cover, how could it not be.

From the opening scene of the main character, Stitches, in full clown-attire, being with his lady, you know what type of movie it is going to be. She even says one of the most hilarious lines of the movie, but it cannot be repeated here. It involves what they are doing. Stitches then has to get ready to perform at a child's birthday party. When he arrives, he cannot do anything to impress the unruly kids. The kids are pretty monstrous at this party and eventually, not really a spoiler alert, they accidentally kill Stitches. The birthday boy is mortified as he sticks around for some more gruesome stuff. The boy, traumatized by the event, eventually goes to visit Stitches grave, when he comes across a ritual taking place amongst some other clowns. It is both creepy and funny at the same time. Who doesn't think clowns are creepy?

Fast forward some years, and now the kids from the party are now all in high school. There is the core 4, which includes the birthday boy, then there are 2 bullying punks, and the birthday boy's crush, who is now dating a musician. The birthday boy has an open house and decides to have a birthday party. At first it was supposed to be the main gang, but eventually, like any of teen movie, it ends up a raging house party. The birthday boy is still traumatized by the events he saw and now thinks he sees clowns everywhere.

Fun, gory, some great humor (love the British accents)! The deaths were quite elaborate and entertaining. This B-Horror flick is definitely worth a watch!

"Stitches" is an Irish Comedy/Horror that I found to be more dark than funny. I actually didn't laugh one time now that I think about it but none the less I enjoyed "Stitches" for what it was. Ross Noble a real life comedian plays Stitches the clown a sloppy bad act that hosts kids birthday parties. This low budget but well put together under the radar gem of sorts had just the right amount of blood, gore and vengeance to satisfy this horror fan.

Stitches is running late to his next gig a birthday party full of bratty kids with bad intentions. He soon finds out every party isn't sunshine an rainbows as the kids prank him and by accident kill him. Many years later the kids (in their teens now) are at a late night high school party unaware that Stitches has risen from the grave to exact his revenge for their misdeeds.

Ross Noble does a pretty good job as Stitches but never once came off as funny, I'm sure some will find him amusing enough for a laugh or two but I didn't. I loved the creativity of the kill scenes and the whole clown mythos was pretty cool as well. Overall I enjoyed everything about "Stitches" and can say I will be adding this to my ever growing collection of horror films once released on dvd. As always I recommend you rent first, you never know you just might hate it!
