Editor’s Choice Selection ‘Stitches’ Gets April Fool’s Release!

The hilarious and insanely bloody Stitches (read the review) is finally getting a U.S. release!!

World renowned British standup comedian Ross Noble stars as a murderous kids’ birthday party clown for Director Conor McMahon (Dead Meat, The Disturbed) in Stitches, debuting with special April Fools’ Day screenings in select cities on April 1, 2013. For fans who can’t catch the rampage on the big screen, the must-see Stitches will be available on VOD, Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD on April 2 from MPI /Dark Sky Films.

Years after a cruel kids’ prank during a birthday party for 8-year-old Tommy (Tommy Knight, Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures) left hired clown Richard “Stitches” Grindle (Ross Noble) dead on the kitchen floor, the childhood friends gather to plan a birthday bash to end all bashes. But they haven’t counted on the degenerate jester rising from the grave to seek vengeance on the children who mocked him and caused his grisly, untimely end. Now Tommy and his teenage friends are on the run from an undead jokester who’s ready to use every trick in the book (and many that aren’t) to exact his revenge. McMahon delivers a delirious slasher epic, a hilariously twisted and blood-soaked tale of one very bad clown with a talent for making balloon animals – but with one very hideous difference.

Red-carpet screenings will be held in New York and Los Angeles to mark the film’s release, with star Tommy Knight in attendance. Stitches is an original Dark Sky Films production in partnership with Fantastic Films, Tailored Films and The Irish Film Board.

    Watched this the other day, and have to pretty much agree with the review. Low budget with The acting/scripting that is a bit Inbetweenerish,and questionable at times even a little cringe worthy. But all that said, the kills is where it’s at with a punchline style quip delivered after each execution and at times are both cartoony and kind of eerie. Bringing to mind of another unsung Brit Super-Slasher Funnyman ( 1994) and even has the feel of a movie from the time.
    A gory and fun time to be had overall,more funny fucked-up than funny Laugh-out-loud.

      Erebus, i agree 100%! i too watched this the other day and it’s weird, fun, funny, etc. but the kills are filmed in such a unique and actually disturbing (in a great way) way that it makes it stand out from other slashers.


    nice, April 2, my Birthday. ive heard this movie is pretty badass, glad its releasing soon.

        Aaron, i’m curious to know what you think of this movie! i enjoyed it. it’s not amazing or anything and at time is really TOO silly but it’s definitely worth renting.
