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.

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

A must for those who appreciate imaginative gore-mongering, with scene after scene of brain-scooping, lung-exploding, eye-javelin-ing brilliance.

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.

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.

The horror-comedy genre is notoriously hard to pull off, but this Irish effort makes a decent, trashy fist of it.

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.

It's like a twisted balloon animal filled with blood and guts, waiting to burst.

A Halloween crowd-pleaser that's missing a few tricks and treats.

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
October 29, 2012
Neither funny nor scary, just amateurish in a bad student film way.

Observer (UK)

Imitation blood flows like a tsunami and the aim of disgusting the audience while raising a few heartless laughs proves moderately successful.

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

There are moments of inspired black comedy in this Irish slasher spoof, but the movie is undermined by its obviously miniscule budget.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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

There's nothing inherently funny or provocative about a bunch of obnoxious kids being relentlessly horrible to a psychologically troubled peer.
Graham Young

Often playing as bright and colourful as the clown's outfit itself, Stitches is better as an idea than it is in execution.

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

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.
