A Première TV Distribution Release



Comedy legend Ross Noble stars as Richard 'Stitches' Grindle in this deliriously twisted slasher comedy. Killed years ago in a party joke gone horribly-and hilariously-awry, Stiches the Clown(Noble) has returned from the grave, swearing revenge against Tommy (Tommy Knight, Doctor Who) and his childhood friends responsible for his untimely end. As the former pranksters reunite for a blowout party, they are not prepared for one uninvited guest... Now Tommy and his friends are on the run from an undead jokester who's ready to use every trick in the book to exact his revenge.


  • Variety: his wickedly inventive and super-grisly deeds are sure to satisfy gorehounds everywhere. A choice cut for genre events, the pic should notch respectable biz when it opens theatrically in Ireland and the U.K. on Oct. 26. Ancillary will be booming. the well-paced pic has the look and feel of a 1980s horror throwback, but only a smattering of the knowing, era-specific sense of humor that's helped comparable recent titles like 'Tucker and Dale vs. Evil' and 'Cabin in the Woods' to stand out from the pack.
  • BIFFF Brussel: De Ierse regisseur Conor McMahon (Dead Meat, The Distuber) heeft met Stitches een razend entertainende midnight movie gemaakt die er bij de fans van de slasher films uit de jaren 80tig als zoete koek zal ingaan. Het scenario is zalig hilarisch en inventief, boordevol visuele en verbale humor van begin tot einde. De manier waarop de makers Cutting Crew's 'I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight' in de film verwerken, zal je een fameuze lachkramp bezorgen. De Britse komiek Ross Noble steelt de show met zijn sardonische punchlines en mimiek terwijl hij allerlei jong volk op zeer creatieve manieren naar het hiernamaals stuurt.

  • good old-fashioned splatstick slasher, with gore gags that Sam Raimi would surely approve of.
  • Stitches is a riot from beginning to end and a rollicking 80s throwback that anyone seeking some gory fun and gut-busting laughs would be an absolute fool to miss. There's a new lead clown in this circus, and his name is Stitches.
  • This is an enjoyable midnight-movie that doesn't wear out its welcome, has a few good laughs and a lot of gross-out moments.
  • an enjoyable comedy horror that gives the function of intestines a new twist.
  • As horror comedies go, Stitches gets the gore-to-laughs ratio exactly right and is often both inventive and side-splittingly funny.
  • wickedly funny gross-out horror ... Utterly grotesque, it's nevertheless full of dreadful puns which Ross Noble delivers with relish.
  • it's funny, clever, disgusting, repulsive and manically funny!
