Synopsis

STITCHES, starring funny man ROSS NOBLE, is the black-comedy horror that has become one of the most anticipated films of the season. Directed by CONOR MCHAHON (Dead Meat), the film enjoyed a hugely successful screening at this year’s Frightfest and won TOTAL FILM’s ‘Best Death’ Award.

Jaded Richard Grindle is the sleaziest clown working the children’s party circuit in Ireland. Arriving late to one birthday, his timing is off, the bratty kids a nightmare and a prank goes horribly wrong – he falls on a kitchen knife and goes to that Big Top in the sky. Years later the same nasty kids attend another more grown up bash. Little do they know, thanks to a black magic clown cult, Stitches will be the uninvited guest of honour seeking revenge on those responsible for his untimely death.

Laughs and gore combine in this twisted tale which also sees some fantastic performances from its young and upcoming cast that includes; TOMMY KNIGHT (Doctor Who) and GEMMA-LEAH DEVEREUX (The Tudors).

Buzz

“It’s like a twisted balloon animal filled with blood and guts, waiting to burst.” – Time Out

“A must for those who appreciate imaginative gore-mongering, with scene after scene of brain-scooping, lung-exploding, eye-javelin-ing brilliance.” – SFX Magazine

“Anyone with a fear of clowns would suffer an irreversible breakdown if they watched this kids’ entertainer as he goes on a murderous spree of vengeance.” – Sun Online

Programmer’s Opinion

There is just something inherently creepy about clowns. I don’t know if it the fact that we don’t really get to know who is behind the make up or the if it is the simple fact that they are always smiling. When you see a clown murdering a teenager with an ice cream scoop you can’t help but smile along with them. Sure the clown might have returned from the dead to seek revenge for having been killed during a child’s birthday party ten years earlier but when he starts to use a victim’s intestines to make balloon animals you will be laughing along with the party. STITCHES is crass, vulgar, bloody and gory but it is also a hell of a lot of fun – John Allison
