    Please note: Grimmfest makes all efforts to maintain all movies, events, and guests as previously advertised. Movies may be subject to change at the distributors’ discretion, and guest appearances are subject to work commitments.

    Now, as for that sixth feature, Grimmfest will be hosting the North West premiere of Conor McMahon’s Stitches, and stars Ross Noble and Tommy Knight will be in attendance alongside director McMahon.

    Stitches is the darkly comic tale of ‘Stitches’ Grindle, a clown cut down in his prime when a practical joke goes horribly wrong. Unable to rest in peace until he avenges himself, he wreaks an unholy night of comic mayhem on Tom O’Connor and his friends and proves beyond doubt that there is nothing funny about a clown in the moonlight.
