Product Description

Jaded Richard Grindle (Ross Noble) 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 of one very bad clown.

I watched `Stitches' mainly because, as well as loving horror, I'm also a big Ross Noble fan and was interested to see how his stand-up would transfer to acting. To be fair, he doesn't have much to do in the way of acting.

His `unconventional' (sorry, Ross) looks make it easy for the make-up department to transform him into an evil, undead clown, hell-bent on seeking bloodthirsty revenge on the party of children who caused his death in the first place.

In short, Ross Noble steals every scene he's in. Sadly, he's not in it enough. He doesn't really come into it (proper) until midway through and, by then, you've been forced to watch your usual `teen drama.' As this is a British film, I was hoping for something a little more original than `uber-geek falls in love with beautiful girl who just so happens to be going out with an arrogant jock.' Sadly, that's all we get. All the (non undead clown) characters are total stereotypes. You'll know exactly who'll die the moment you see them.

And die they do. That's where the film excels. I'm guessing it had quite a small budget, but it really makes the most of the gore. Some of the death scenes are truly disgusting (and hilarious in their over-the-topness).

Stitches is worth watching if you like horror and Ross Noble. He provides all the comedy and gore which will satisfy you. However, sadly the film can never truly be a classic, as the first half is pretty bland and the second half is only ever really alive when the (dead) Ross Nobel is on-screen.

It's a good film that's (sadly) wrapped up in the oldest movie cliché going.

I give it a generous 4/5, based on Ross Noble's performance. If it didn't have him, it wouldn't even get 3/5.

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.

We purchased this mainly off the back of Ross Noble paying the role of an evil clown. It's a great pastiche horror akin to that of the Scream franchise. It was thoroughly enjoyable with some grim moments to make you wince coupled with some humorous moments as well.

Worth a watch!

Our expectations weren't that high, which was a good thing. Laughable! Awful film! Did make us giggle in a few places though.

A super tongue in cheek black comedy - do not take it seriously and you will laugh your socks off. Ross Noble is excellent!

Format: DVD
It has to be admitted that this is a cheap B film, and it isn't a classic like some have become, and I doubt it ever will. Don't expect anything too great from this, although it is an entertaining eighty six minutes or so that you do get. The story itself is a bit silly, but then so are many other horror movies, and it is an easy enough plot to follow; clown dies and clown is resurrected, to get his revenge.

The acting isn't great here, and it does lose pace between the clown's death and his re-appearance. The special effects are rather cheap and not necessarily that realistic, although they do make you think of days gone past with prosthetic effects and not much realism. There is a lot of gore here, and I must admit that I showed this to my parents, who did have a bit of a laugh at this, although my dad, who is squeamish anyway, had to look away every now and then.

This is really like most other teen slasher movies and isn't really that bad to become good, or that good in the first place. This I would recommend more to watch on rental, with mates and a few bevies than to actually own. There are a few bonuses on this disc, a making of, and bloopers, as well as a Q&A piece that was made. This is just okay, nothing special and not really that memorable, although it does give you a few laughs.

I LOVE Ross Noble. How can't you? He is down to earth, oddly charming and now, apparently does quite a good turn as an actor!

Saw this at a cinema with a Q&A beamed in via satellite. True to form, the talent spoke beyond their allotted time meaning they were chopped off mid chuckle, but it was clear that the cast and crew are as passionate about this project as any Noble fans will be.

Gruesome, gory and undeniably funny, Stitches awakens that fear we all have in us of clowns! It is a true horror fans horror without forgetting why the casting fell were it did.

Clever, sick, clownish and as soon as possible, an addition to my collection!
