Dark Sky

Stitches

It’s really difficult to understand what the hell is going on in the trailer for the Irish clown-based slasher comedy Stitches, but the fact that there’s an Irish clown-based slasher comedy is pretty awesome. If the movie is able to strike the weird tonal balance seen here, it’ll be a winner. In some moments, it looks like a serious revenge film where a Bad Santa style children’s party clown comes back from the dead to cut up some drunken revelers. In others, Stitches is trying to chase people while riding a tricycle built for someone 1/4th his size. Comedy gets blood all over it, and everyone wins. Check out the trailer for yourself:

If you’re not familiar with Ti West by know, you really should be. This up and coming genre director really blew the doors off with his 80s horror homage The House of the Devil and his latest film The Innkeepers is another great example of his directing style, building tension slowly but surely to a fever pitch before letting it all boil over in spectacular fashion. For his first effort, Dark Sky went along with that love letter to the 80s by creating a special clamshell VHS version of The House of the Devil which was sold via Amazon in combo packs with the DVD or Blu-ray. I am a proud owner of one of those VHS editions. With the home video release of The Innkeepers hitting, Dark Sky has done it again, this time creating a vinyl-style gatefold edition of the Blu-ray, that is, in a word, gorgeous. However, this time they’ve done a super limited run of only 400 copies, none of which are for sale. So how did you get your grubby hands on a copy? Why the magic of internet movie sites, that’s how!
