Different spin on familiar genre, 13 June 2013
Author: Andrew Pelechaty from Brisbane, Australia

While the slasher/comedy/horror genre has been done to death, the Irish film 'Stitches' takes the main elements of the genre and puts a fresh twist on it.

The story has a real 'Nightmare on Elm Street' vibe: Ross Noble plays Stitches, a cynical clown who is accidentally killed by some bratty kids at a birthday party. A clown cult preserves his spirit and six years later Stitches returns to exact revenge on the same kids, now teenagers.

While 'Stitches' may be a lot more low-budget than modern horror fans are used to, it works because it's funny, it has imaginative and creative death scenes (another 'Elm Street' nod) and the over-the-top gore: including intestines being turned into a balloon animal, a head being blown up with a balloon pump, an umbrella through the eye and brains being scooped out with a can opener and an ice cream scoop. It's basically an old-school slasher film with a few updates.

Noble is the only known actor in the film and he carries is: rather than lazily trade on his stand-up persona, he manages to balance the funny and creepy side of Stitches (even killing a poor, innocent cat during his rampage). He seems to be genuinely enjoying it, delivering his kills with bad clown puns.

The teenage cast does a serviceable job but play second fiddle to Stitches' killing spree.

If you're a fan of old-school slashers which balance the funny and the gory, then 'Stitches' is worth a look.
