Trivia

The line, said by Stitches, "Can you tell what it is yet?" is the catch-phrase of Rolf Harris. See more »

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 »

Quotes

[last line before being killed]
Stitches: Well fuck me sideways... I never thought I'd end up with egg on my face.

Ross not so Noble
23 September 2012 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I have to admit, I never had heard of the comedian Ross Noble before I watched this movie. And I wouldn't have been that intrigued by him, if I hadn't seen him perform live. Actually that means he opened the Frightfest and introduced Stitches a day later to the audience. The fact that he was talking about his movie made me believe he was the director. He got me fooled (met the real director too, a really nice guy) and maybe some others too.

But back to this movie, that is a real fun little horror movie, that plays with the fear of clowns. Some have a real phobia, those shouldn't watch this movie of course. Or if you are easily offended (be it by violence or nonpolitical correctness) - don't watch. Everyone else: Jump on the the train and have fun during the trip.
