Stitches (2012)

Sometimes I enjoy some humor mixed in with the horror I watch. Unfortunately, finding some original/horror comedy that is worth watching can be a challenge. My next selection was not a challenge, 2012s evil clown flick Stitches. 

Plot/ A clown comes back from the dead to haunt those who took his life during a fatal party mishap. 

while I had my week silence, i had to found at least one evil clown movie to watch and I am glad i found Stitches. Yes, this issue a genre that has been done before, but this one actually adds something to the horror/comedy genre that is actually refreshing. For a low budget entry it does a great job mixing comedy and some over-the-top gore into some creative deaths. The acting is solid and there is just enough storyline and laughable to keep you entertained. Sure, the begun beginning is not the greatest and it actually brings the flick down a notch and there is an overall lack of characterization, but that is not the end of the world. In the end, this is an interesting joy horror comedy that actually embraces it's place within the slasher genre. Not a perfect movie, but it is worth watching.Give it a go, you may be surprised.
