Stitches Is Ready for His Close-Up
Seriously … if you suffer from Coulrophobia, do yourself a favor and skip this entire article. No good will come of it for you. Just move on; there’s nothing to see here. Not even your first good look at a murderous one-eyed clown. Move along now. Thanks for coming. See ya later.
Stitches stars popular British comedian Ross Noble and Tommy Knight of “Doctor Who” and “The Sarah Jane Adventures” and is directed by Conor McMahon (Disturbed, Dead Meat). The film, which is a Dark Sky Films original production in partnership with Fantastic Films and the Irish Film Board, tells the macabre story of Richard “Stitches” Grindle, a jaded workaday kids’ birthday clown, whose one-liners are witty in a way that’s just not for kids. Stitches falls victim to a fatal party mishap 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.
The movie is the latest original production coming from MPI Media Group’s Dark Sky Films, whose recent productions include The Innkeepers, Stake Land, Hatchet II, and the upcoming Hatchet 3 and Frankenstein’s Army. Dublin’s Fantastic Films, run by John McDonnell and Brendan McCarthy, has produced many successful genre films, including Hammer Films’ Wake Wood and Outcast. The film is also being produced with finance help from the Irish Film Board.
