British horror flick 'Stitches' is finally set for a US release this coming April. And even more aptly MPI/Dark Sky Films will be unleashing the killer clown flick into selected theatres on April Fool's Day (1st April). But don't worry if you live in the sticks somewhere because the Conor McMahon ('Dead Meat') helmed horror will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD the following day. Brit comic Ross Noble stars as the psychotic red nosed one whilst Tommy Knight ('Doctor Who') and hottie Gemma-Leah Devereux ('The Tudors') will be doing their best to avoid his deadly clownery. Check out the one-sheet and synopsis below.
"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."
'Stitches' arrives on DVD and Blu-ray here in the UK on 4th March and if you check back soon we'll be getting our hands on some copies to giveaway to our lucky readers.
