What is it about clowns that makes them so darned terrifying? I mean, they're supposed to be mild, fun entertainment for children and yet we almost always think of them as malevolent. Well, if you're ready for another killer clown movie, one with a touch of stark black humor then prepare yourselves for 'Stitches' from director Conor McMahon!
Years after a cruel kids' prank during a birthday party for 8-year-old Tommy (Tommy Knight, Doctor Who, The Sarah Jane Adventures) left hired clown Richard "Stitches" Grindle (Ross Noble) dead on the kitchen floor, the childhood friends gather to plan a birthday bash to end all bashes. But they haven’t counted on the degenerate jester rising from the grave to seek vengeance on the children who mocked him and caused his grisly, untimely end. Now Tommy and his teenage friends are on the run from an undead jokester who’s ready to use every trick in the book (and many that aren’t) to exact his revenge. Dead Meat writer-director Conor McMahon delivers a delirious slasher epic, a hilariously twisted and blood-soaked tale of one very bad clown with a talent for making balloon animals – but with one very hideous difference.
The highly anticipated film hits select U.S. theaters on April 1st with a VOD, Digital Download and Blu-ray/DVD release set for April 2nd. Check out the trailer below and cover art above!
