This is one of my favorites, its highly original with great innovative kills. The main character Tom has the kind of friends we all wish for. Look for bitch Sarahs great death. There is a sing along featuring “I Just Died in your arms Tonight” that is great. This Irish Horror comedy is really funny in parts but still manages to be creepy and scary in others, sometimes at the same time even.

One kid is on Hypnocil which is a made up drug and is a nice nod to the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.  The movie started its own lore, did its homework and created likable characters. While some are sad the death scenes are awesome. Innovative like i said before and some of the best kills you’ll ever see. A bit over the top but that makes it some times. We didn’t understand some of the Irish slang so if anyone can help us out thanks lol.

Good motive, convincing actors, followed rules. Great direction, opening and ending. The clown could have been scarier but it worked. We loved all the different clowns from different eras they used. The scariest part is also the funniest, look for the tricycle.  All in all we loved it. A must own movie. Tara gave it a 93/100 and i gave it a 95/100. As of writing this Stitches is on Netflix so we recommend you go watch it, if you are anything like us, you’ll enjoy it a lot. Thanks for reading!! Let me know what you think of it.

About DJVoorhees13

I don't believe in long winded reviews. I love Jason Voorhees. My favorite Friday is Friday 4: The Final Chapter (even though it isn’t), but I even like Friday 5: A New Beginning. I know the killer is not technically Jason, but you gotta love little Reckless and the blonde woman who keeps throwing him around. My guilty pleasures are Return of the Living Dead Parts 1 – 3. I know they’re not everyone’s favorites, but I can watch them over and over again with no reprieve. I also happen to think that Return of the Living Dead 3 characters Julie and Curt have one of the greatest love story ever told. When I’m not watching horror movies, I’m usually watching old TV shows or reading books/comics. Currently watching Star Trek: Voyager and reading anything by Dante Alighieri.
