Stitches Movie Review

Years after being accidentally killed at a children's birthday party as a result of a prank the kids pulled on him, a psychotic clown returns to seek revenge. This Irish horror-comedy is a true hidden gem among a sea of mediocre films of the same genre, though it does lean far more toward the comedy than the horror. Ross Noble does a fantastic job as Stitches, the most dysfunctional clown this side of Shakes.

Handsome fella, no?

The rest of the acting in the film varies--some performances are pretty good, some a little less so, but nothing here is too terrible. The budget of this is really low, but good directing and camerawork do a wonderful job of masking its shortcomings. There are some very bloody and gory scenes throughout, but they are primarily done with tongue planted firmly in cheek. There is some crude comedy in the film--I'm not typically a big fan of this sort of thing, but it's not so abundant that it takes a whole lot from the movie. Also be warned--some of the comedy falls under the category of "British humour", so if this is not your thing, you may want to steer clear. Stitches will never be considered one of the greatest films in movie making history, but it is a fun film that I enjoy and believe to be worth a look.
