Surprisingly, Stitches looks like a goodmovie that seems to be influenced by ’80s slasher flicks. On April Fools’ Day, the film promises to unleash a tale with buckets of blood and a hilarious twist on the big screen. The film stars British stand-up comedian, Ross Noble, as Richard “Stitches” Grindle, a murderous birthday party clown that goes on a killing rampage after a bunch of degenerate kids caused his death.
I personally hate clowns, and I’m assuming most of you do as well, but after watching this red band trailer for Stitches, I’m actually rooting for a clown for the first time since Killer Klowns from Outer Space. If you’re a parent, you might find this disturbing, but I really hope Mr. Stitches uses every trick in the book to exact his revenge.
Stitches was directed by Conor McMahon (Dead Meat, The Disturbed) and will be debuting in select theaters on April 1, 2013. On the following day the film will become available on VOD, Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD from MPI/Dark Sky Films.
