Wanted to fall asleep but couldn't
16 January 2004 | by bobafett_hSee all my reviews

This is without doubt one of the worst films I have ever seen. I saw it at a friend's birthday party where someone had recommended it as being a good film.

Mr Stitch was so boring that I even found the opening credits boring! The rest of the film was no better. The first two thirds of it took place in this enormous white room without walls. The story seemed to drag on an awful lot and took forever to get to the point of the story which it didn't really appear to have much of.

The bizarre looking Frankenstein like creation continued to have memories which were left in the body parts that had come from the people who were dug up in order to build this prototype super soldier for the military. It was difficult trying to find a reason to stay awake, but the person who recommended it kept saying "a good bit was coming up soon". It never did.

I have heard that this film won a Golden Turkey award for the most boring film of all time. An award which is most deserving. The only notable parts of the movie with any entertainment value at all are the observation eyeball and the smoke cloud in the shape of a skull.

Watch it if you suffer from insomnia.
