For this ‘Ten Years On’ post we take a look back at “Stitches”.
Who doesn’t love a clown themed Horror film?!
Being British myself I know that I’m definitely biased when it comes to British Horror films, I just can’t help it. I always want them to do well and in a strange way I want them to be something to be to be proud of, I don’t know why that is , I wish I could explain it then I’d know why my self.
This was one of those films and I was actually excited for this release, for those of you who don’t know our lead clown ‘Stitches’ is British comedian Ross Noble. So with that in mind I guessed this feature was going to have a comedic edge to it, not that there’s anything wrong with that.
In fact I was really hoping for it, I wanted a perfect mixture of Horror and comedy as when it’s done perfectly it can be so much fun and that’s exactly what this delivered. I had myself a great time watching this, between the heavy and imaginative gore scenes plus the well placed hilarious jokes it was so much fun.
With its 1980’s inspiration worn proudly on its sleeves the crew behind this film knew exactly what they were going for and they absolutely nailed it. The one thing that’s always bothered me since its release it how many people don’t even know about it, it just seemed to fly under the radar.
Ten years on and “Stitches” is still a ton of fun to watch, I should know I watched it again not long ago, and it’s about time this film got given another chance to get (re)discovered.
