An Unapologetically Campy Horror/Comedy That Revels In Its Own Brand Of Lunacy March 28 2013
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
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. As the invitations go out, there is one uninvited guest ready to shake things up. Stitches has a score to settle with the brats that put him in the ground, and the night will become a bloodbath of revenge. In typical slasher fashion, Stitches works his way through the party until the inevitable confrontation will determine who will survive and who won't.

Again, "Stitches" really works as an homage to many films that preceded it. It is fast and funny, and it simply works better than you might think. Noble is appropriately disgusting as Stitches, but it is Knight that gives the movie surprising heart. He and many of the young cast prove to be quite likable. It's rare to connect with the characters in a movie of this type, but the screenplay actually makes you care about what happens to them. But the real star of "Stitches" are the murders. So absurd, it's borderline genius. I won't spoil anything, but the movie is loaded with terrifically gory sight gags. "Stitches" seems designed to become a cult movie that people will discover through time. Many will hate it, I'm sure. But if you like this genre, and can give yourself over to the silliness--there is a lot to recommend this experience. For the right audience, this is tremendous fun. KGHarris, 3/13.

Everybody Happy?!?! Nov. 14 2013
By Owl City G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

The ritual that took place in the cemetery, now seems to have awoken Stitches, who is now bent on revenge. What takes place next, is a series of gruesome, yet comical revenge kills. Stitches wants to exact his revenge on the brats that got him killed. There is wit and humor with each kill and I am not going to give them all away, but at the party, the 80's song by Cutting Crew plays - "I, almost died in your arms tonight"... and the movie cuts to Stitches holding a recent murder victim in his arms. Classic! Eventually the main character gets his crush and his best friend to believe him that Stitches has returned, but not before a few more humorous and sick deaths occur. I will just mention balloon animals and an umbrella. The umbrella scene was also very witty because it cuts between a scene where a couple are about to have sex and he throws the girl on his bed, and cuts to a scene of Stitches chasing a girl, and she ends up on a bed.

The main characters, figure out that the ritual done years ago, has something to do with Stitches resurrection. They set out to the cemetery to hopefully end Stitches' rebirth before its too late.

Most horror movies that involve comedy, don't pull over either. This movie is witty and dark at the same time. Like I said at the beginning, if you are a big fan of horror alone, then this might not be for you. If you like some comedy mixed with your horror, and done right, then you will enjoy this movie. I saw the preview of this movie on another horror movie I have and immediately thought of getting it. I was not disappointed.

Everybody Happy? (Stitches' catchphrase)

At least I am.

I JUST DIED IN YOUR ARMS TONIGHT, April 30 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

Stitches works on every Level.. April 2 2013
By Dayna Newman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Stitches is a near flawless Slasher /Comedy.An offering from Ireland All I can do is thank them.
Ross Noble as Stitches was joy to watch as was most of the cast, it was a great ensemble.If you like hard core gore and off the wall humor and "did that really just happen" moments you will love this film.
Stitches gets violently killed during a prank at a kids party. The kids were mean bratty and caused his death. Enter 6 years later when the kids that did this are in high school and Stitches rises from the dead to wreak havoc and make it rain blood at the party.What ensues next is one of the most enjoyable, hilarious and goriest slasher/Comedies I have seen in a very long time.The deaths are so fun and creative and the one liners are enough to make you lol,I say do yourself a favor and buy the blu ray or DVD,you will want to watch it again and again..

Pretty good movie May 26 2014
By MobiusX - Published on Amazon.com
Something that stands out is that he used tricks to kill people I never seen. It's not out of this world so calm down. It's just something that I've never seen being used in other horror movies.
