The clumsy and unfunny clown Richard "Stitches" Grindle goes to the birthday party of little Tom and the boy and his friends play a prank with Stitches, tying his shoelaces. Stitches slips, falls and dies. Six years later, Tom gives a birthday party for his friends at home and the clown revives to haunt the teenagers and revenge his death.Written by

The medication that Tommy takes to relieve anxiety is called "Hypnocil", the same name as the medication used to suppress dreams in the Nightmare on Elm Street series. See more »
Throughout the film, Tom's telescope is never fitted with a focal/magnification lens. Even though it shown being "focused", all that anyone would ever see is a small point of light, the scene smaller than would be seen by the human eye. See more »

I went to the cinema to see 'Sinister', but it was full, so we went and saw Stitches instead. I'm so glad we did! This film was classic! I expected a horror, but I wasn't at all prepared for how much it'd make me smile. Ross does a brilliant job bringing his character to life, and the story and kids wrapped around the concept are just tacky enough to reek of stereotype, but just different enough to keep you entertained and smiling (such as Bulger doing the splits at the gym, or the 'bully' actually being the only character in a stable, functional relationship).
Brilliant film, a lovely surprise to what would have otherwise been a disappointing evening!
