June 12, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.

April 2, 2013
A truly inventive old-school horror/comedy that features some of the bloodiest and crazy awesome kills I've seen in some time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 29, 2012
Neither funny nor scary, just amateurish in a bad student film way.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 28, 2012
Imitation blood flows like a tsunami and the aim of disgusting the audience while raising a few heartless laughs proves moderately successful.
October 27, 2012
A must for those who appreciate imaginative gore-mongering, with scene after scene of brain-scooping, lung-exploding, eye-javelin-ing brilliance.

Stitches is bursting at the seams with good ideas, but director Conor McMahon stumbles when it comes to the execution.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 26, 2012
This low-budget throwback to Eighties slasher movies is stronger on gory deaths than lethal one-liners but if you have the stomach for it, it's an efficient little shocker.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 26, 2012
There are moments of inspired black comedy in this Irish slasher spoof, but the movie is undermined by its obviously miniscule budget.

October 25, 2012
Anyone with a fear of clowns would suffer an irreversible breakdown if they watched this kids' entertainer as he goes on a murderous spree of vengeance.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 25, 2012
It somehow wasn't funny or scary enough - though I do have to admit it is always more than revolting enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 25, 2012
There's nothing inherently funny or provocative about a bunch of obnoxious kids being relentlessly horrible to a psychologically troubled peer.
October 25, 2012
Often playing as bright and colourful as the clown's outfit itself, Stitches is better as an idea than it is in execution.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The horror-comedy genre is notoriously hard to pull off, but this Irish effort makes a decent, trashy fist of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 24, 2012
Stitches gets the gore-to-laughs ratio exactly right and is often both inventive and side-splittingly funny, but it's also slightly let down by dodgy dialogue, poor performances and lacklustre direction.

October 23, 2012
It's like a twisted balloon animal filled with blood and guts, waiting to burst.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 21, 2012
Deeply icky on many different levels, with Ross Noble's feature debut illuminated by stomach-churning effects.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 28, 2012
A Halloween crowd-pleaser that's missing a few tricks and treats.

it is for the over-the-top inventiveness of its latex gore effects that Stitches is most memorable. Unfortunately, though, despite the best efforts of its young cast, the film is more crude and mean-spirited than ever actually scary or funny.
