British comedian Ross Noble dons some greasepaint and murderous intentions in Conor McMahon (DEAD MEAT) ‘s new killer clown film STITCHES. We’ve been hearing tons of praise on this one, and judging from the trailer, it’s well deserved.
“Years after a cruel kids’ prank during a birthday party for 8-year-old Tommy (Tommy Knight, DOCTOR WHO, THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES) left hired clown Richard “Stitches” Grindle (Ross Noble) dead on the kitchen floor, the childhood friends gather to plan a birthday bash to end all bashes. But they haven’t counted on the degenerate jester rising from the grave to seek vengeance on the children who mocked him and caused his grisly, untimely end.
Now Tommy and his teenage friends are on the run from an undead jokester who’s ready to use every trick in the book (and many that aren’t) to exact his revenge. Dead Meat writer-director Conor McMahon delivers a delirious slasher epic, a hilariously twisted and blood-soaked tale of one very bad clown with a talent for making balloon animals – but with one very hideous difference.”
STITCHES comes out in limited theaters beginning April 1st, with VOD, DVD & BLURAY following suit on April 2nd VIA Dark Sky Films.
