Goofs

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 »

definitely worth watching
18 June 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Have seen the trailer and have seen so many positive things about this horror I was waiting for it's official release over here and let this day be the day that Stitches finally was available in the shops. Was it all worth the wait because face it, it was hyped somehow.

Yes, for me it was worth the wait. I had a few good laughs and I enjoyed the killings, even as they were somehow funny it worked. Oh sure, if you think you are going to watch a scary movie or a slasher then you are wrong. This never came to me as a straight horror but it looked so British/Irish due the accents used and of course the one-liners said by Stitches (Ross Nobles). Oh yes, the clown do return out for revenge but when his nose was sniffing around for Stitches' victims it again was meant to be funny. The nose rolling around will be to much for some and could look ridiculous but it's a clown out for a kill so face it, this is how a clown it should do.

On part of the horror the killings were mostly on the edge of gore. When ones intestines are taken out by Stitches it's a gory delight but immediately he's making figures with the intestines. How funny is that. I was in this movie from the beginning towards the end. I enjoyed it and you could spot that the director Conor McMahon knew his classic shot like the classic slasher POV shots.

Stitches shows how funny situations and gore can be combined in one package even as it is done sometimes in CGI.
