Critic Reviews for Stitches
It's like a twisted balloon animal filled with blood and guts, waiting to burst.
Aiming for a gruesomely silly vibe that plays like equal parts American Pie and Evil Dead 2, Stitches preys on teenage foibles and clown clichés alike, offering mostly solid if not quite cult-classic-level fun.
Stitches has all the makings of a perfect cult classic, effortlessly blending comedically dark clown work by Ross Noble with grade "A" horror shenanigans - plus you can't ignore that distinctively schlocky 80s feel.
Imitation blood flows like a tsunami and the aim of disgusting the audience while raising a few heartless laughs proves moderately successful.
Audience Reviews for Stitches
Stitches is a fun and entertaining horror comedy that is quite refreshing. However it's not without its flaws. The thing that really stands out about the film is the kill sequences that are quite original and fun. If you are terrified of clowns, then this film is the one to watch. Clowns have always been a unique subject in terms of horror and, let's face it, they're creepy. This is an amusing twist on the traditional clown tale, and it is quite the original take on standard clown movies. The kill sequences are the best aspect of the movie and will certainly appeal to genre fans. The film at times just fall short, but overall this is a decent film worth seeing and is far better than most big budget films that we've seen so far. The performances here work well for the material, and Ross Nobel is a great choice for the lead role. Films like this are what's needed in the horror genre because they're original, creative and worth seeing due to their ideas and concepts. If you want to watch something refreshing in the genre, Stitches is that film. Taking a creepy clown concept and turning it around to reinvent something that we've been scared of for years. The film may be imperfect and ranges from decent to good, but is a far better movie than most in the genre nowadays. Give it a shot; you may be surprised by how good it really is. The film may have its fair share of imperfections, but is a fun ride from start to finishes. This is one of the most memorable clown movies since Killer Klowns from Outer Space.
It becomes too ridiculous at times and the plot is filled with clichÃ (C)s, but man were those death scenes awesome! Ross Noble's presence helped too.
