What horror fan doesn't love a good killer clown movie? Stephen King's IT, that creepy doll from POLTERGEIST, KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE-- we can't get enough of 'em. For some reason, there hasn't been a good evil clown flick to come around in a quite a while. STITCHES, a UK slasher from DEAD MEAT director Conor McMahon, looks to change that.
The film, which opens in UK cinemas October 26th, stars comedian Ross Noble as the titular evil clown. Television regulars Tommy Knight and Gemma-Leah Devereux co-star. North American horror fans can expect the film to be released by Dark Sky films sometime next year.
Check out the trailer and synopsis below to see STITCHES in gory, blackly comedic action.
Jaded Richard Grindle is the sleaziest clown working the children’s party circuit in Ireland. Arriving late to one birthday, his timing is off, the bratty kids a nightmare and a prank goes horribly wrong - he falls on a kitchen knife and goes to that Big Top in the sky. Years later the same nasty kids attend another more grown up bash. Little do they know, thanks to a black magic clown cult, Stitches will be the uninvited guest of honour seeking revenge on those responsible for his untimely death.
