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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
Besides Stitches morbid wit, the kill scenes were so creative (and definitely not interested in any kind of realism, duh) and hilarious. My only beef was with the meow. She was innocent! When will they (horror movie makers) get the hint that these scenes are not 1) scary or 2) funny! But still, it was obviously fake so....I won't hold it against them.
I wasn't familiar with Ross Noble so I googled him. He's a very successful standup comic. His comedy is very unique, so it's worth checking out (owl boobs, anyone? lol). Stitches was Ross' first movie. Great job! Thanks for the laughs. Its rare nowadays.
