I’ve never been a fan of clowns, mimes or, people dressed in vibrant costumes who are hired to make you smile. This list includes Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, or those who actively participate in Civil War reenactments. Their inherent creepiness is probably why I love movies about psychotic clowns with a penchant for grisly murder. Director Conor “Dead Meat” McMahon’s latest endeavor “Stitches” looks suitably creepy, though I’m hoping the film retains the dark sense of humor present in the filmmaker’s previous effort.
You can expect to experience the following storyline:
Richard ”Stitches” Grindle, a jaded workaday kids’ birthday clown, whose one-liners are witty in a way that’s just not for kids. He falls victim to a fatal party mishahp at the hands of a group of particularly nasty children. Years later, the group of now teenagers attend a party at which Stitches is the uninvited guest of honor, returning to avenge his untimely death.
Depending on you read this, “Stitches” will either have had or is getting ready to have its debut at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. In order to keep word-of-mouth spreading, a brand new one-sheet for the flick has found its way online. You can have a look at the digital version by directing your attention to the image below.
