‘A clown comes back from the dead to haunt those who caused his death during a fatal party mishap.’
GRIMM’S EYE VIEW:
The Bastard Love Child Of… Michael Myers and Ronald McDonald.
There’s something not right about clowns. The forced laughter, the painted on smile, the white face make up. They terrify small children and let’s face it, nobody actually feels comfortable around them. One of America’s most notorious serial killers, John Wayne Gacy performed as a clown, because, as he explained, “Clowns can get away with murder.” The evil clown has become a horror archetype to rank alongside vampires, werewolves and zombies, and offers far more opportunities for black comedy. Director Conor McMahon and stars Tommy Knight and Ross Noble take those opportunities and runs with them, offering splatter-satire and twisted laughs a plenty as Stitches goes on his merry little massacre. We are pleased to announce that Ross, Tommy Knight and Gemma-Leah Devereux will be joining us after the screening for a Q&A.
