No foolin’—Fango will host a free screening of the
delightfully gruesome horror/comedy STITCHES on Monday, April 1 at 7 p.m. This
special April Fools’ Day showing will be held at New York City’s Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street, off University
Place). Popular British standup comedian Ross Noble stars as the titular,
murderous birthday-party clown in STITCHES, which was written and directed by
Conor McMahon (helmer of THE DISTURBED and Fango Video’s DEAD MEAT).
The Fango screening of STITCHES will be a free show; to

Years after a cruel kids’ prank during a birthday party for
8-year-old Tommy (Tommy Knight of DOCTOR WHO) left hired clown Richard
“Stitches” Grindle (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
buddies 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 nasty revenge…
STITCHES won the Best Death Scene prize at London’s
FrightFest last summer and also played the Sitges, Telluride and Brussels film
festivals. Reviewing STITCHES, Dread Central praised the movie as “over-the-top
ludicrous…the fun factor blows right off the scale,” and SFX’s Natasha Hodgson
called the film “a must for those who appreciate imaginative gore-mongering,
with scene after scene of brain-scooping, lung-exploding, eye-javelining
brilliance.” Rosie Fletcher of Total Film called STITCHES “a Halloween
crowd-pleaser,” and Anton Bitel of Little White Lies summed up the film thusly:
“It is for the over-the-top inventiveness of its latex gore effects that
STITCHES is most memorable.” You can see the trailer below.
So for this coming April’s Fool’s Day, make no joke about it
and come see STITCHES in NYC! It’s gonna be a scream!
