Time Out

It's like a twisted balloon animal filled with blood and guts, waiting to burst.

Dread Central

A truly inventive old-school horror/comedy that features some of the bloodiest and crazy awesome kills I've seen in some time.

SFX Magazine

A must for those who appreciate imaginative gore-mongering, with scene after scene of brain-scooping, lung-exploding, eye-javelin-ing brilliance.

Aiming for a gruesomely silly vibe that plays like equal parts American Pie and Evil Dead 2, Stitches preys on teenage foibles and clown clichés alike, offering mostly solid if not quite cult-classic-level fun.

Neither funny nor scary, just amateurish in a bad student film way.

Stitches is bursting at the seams with good ideas, but director Conor McMahon stumbles when it comes to the execution.

Stitches has all the makings of a perfect cult classic, effortlessly blending comedically dark clown work by Ross Noble with grade "A" horror shenanigans - plus you can't ignore that distinctively schlocky 80s feel.

I hope to keep this short, since I don't really have much to say about this movie. This, technically, isn't a very good movie at all. The fact of… More

It becomes too ridiculous at times and the plot is filled with clichà (C)s, but man were those death scenes awesome! Ross Noble's presence helped too.

Stitches is a funny little black comedy that could really use some better actors. This rare Irish gem had some good moments but it's not well polished and… More
