Director Conor McMahon has grown significantly as a filmmaker since his offbeat horror romp Dead Meat, a zombie romp about a virus that makes the leap from infected animals to humans.
Stitches - his latest release which debuted in the States this week courtesy of Dark Sky Films - is a fine demonstration that he has fine-tuned his horror-comedy chops for the better. His tale about a party clown who is accidentally killed and resurrected to slaughter a group of teens is sharp, gory and pretty goddamn funny. It's a blend of '80s slasher archetypes and American Pie-esque gags.
ShockTillYouDrop.com had a chance to speak with McMahon while he was in town attending the Hollywood premiere of his film on April Fool's Day.
