Terrifier 2 is an upcoming American supernatural slasher horror feature film featuring Art the Clown. Damien Leone (All Hallows’ Eve; Frankenstein vs. The Mummy) wrote and is directing the highly-anticipated sequel to Terrifier.
Actress Lauren LaVera (Clinton Road; Marvel’s Iron Fist) stars alongside David Howard Thornton (Art the Clown) as the sequel’s female lead.
Horror icon Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp; Victor Crowley; Camp Dread and many more) previously posted on Instagram that she has joined the cast of Terrifier 2 playing the role of “Ms Principe.” She added: “This will be an epic film and I am thrilled to be involved.” She also confirmed that Tamara Glynn (Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers) and Jason Lively (Night of the Creeps) are also on board for the highly-anticipated sequel.
Terrifier 2 totally surpassed its IndieGoGo funding target by 430% by raising $215,112!
After being resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to Miles County where he must hunt down and destroy a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween…
In October 2020, Damien Leone had this to say on social media:
“Our initial goal was to have it out this month but like every other production, COVID set us back big time. We are finally heading into our final stretch of filming currently and our new goal is to have the film completed by early 2021.
“However, that does not mean we will have distribution secured. That will be the next step upon completion. As you know, Terrifier 2 is a completely independent film funded through Indiegogo and a handful of private investors. We did not have a studio or distribution company backing us so this is truly a grassroots campaign on every level. Believe me, we are as anxious and excited to release this film as you are to see it but the last thing we want to do is rush it. The cast and crew have truly put an unfathomable amount of time and energy into this film and we’re trying to exceed expectations on every level. All I can say is, it will be worth the wait.”
Previously, Leone had commented:
“Thank you all very much for your patience! We are thrilled to finally announce that Terrifier 2 is funded and slated to begin filming in the fall of this year! Our production company Dark Age Cinema is producing once again which means the inmates are still running the asylum. We are unchained and unrestricted, so rest assured, Terrifier 2 will be merciless, no holds barred follow-up you’ve been hoping for. If you thought we pushed the envelope in part 1… you haven’t seen anything yet.”
“Now since the scope of Terrifier 2 is 10 times bigger than the original, we can still really use your help! Thankfully, we’ve gotten numerous requests at conventions and on social media to launch a crowdfunding campaign for the sequel so that is our goal! In the coming weeks, we will launch a small Indiegogo campaign with the hopes of raising some much needed additional funds.”
“Perks will range from social media shout outs to screen worn Art the Clown accessories, to even being killed by the man himself in Terrifier 2! If we reach our goal, the proceeds will go towards the biggest and most mind-blowing scene in the script which requires an unprecedented amount of special effects, extras and stunts. Now although I cannot spoil the details of the scene, try to imagine if Art the Clown was in charge of the prom mayhem in Carrie! With your help, we can truly turn this scene into an unforgettable piece of horror cinema.”
“Again, we want to thank you from the bottom of our black hearts for your constant support and patience. We mean it when we say, the success of Terrifier is based solely on the dedication of our fanbase. In return, we want you to be involved every step of the way and we promise to deliver a film that surpasses your expectations!”
