Stitches Review

Image for Stitches

Stitches the clown (Noble) comes back from the dead to wreak vengeance on the partygoers responsible for his death.


Stitches the clown (Ross Noble), killed during a children’s party, returns from the grave for revenge when teenager Tom (Tommy Knight) finally gets past the trauma to have another birthday bash. An ’80s-style gore movie from director Conor McMahon (Dead Meat), this goes for gross whether pinching zits or tying balloon animals from intestines. It does deliver the full quota of ugh-inducing effects, but tends to trip over its clown shoes when it tries to be too funny or scary. The young leads Knight and Gemma-Leah Devereux aren’t too bad, though.

Deeply icky on many different levels, with Ross Noble's feature debut illuminated by stomach-churning effects.
