Terrifier 2 is an American supernatural slasher horror film featuring Art the Clown and the highly-anticipated sequel to Terrifier.
David Howard Thornton returns as the demonic killer, Art the Clown. Also returning is Samantha Scaffidi who will reprise her role as Victoria Heyes. The sequel introduces Lauren LaVera as Sienna and horror icon Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) has a cameo role.
In the US, Terrifier 2 will be theatrically nationwide on October 6, 2022, via Iconic Events without an MPA rating.
“The Terrifier franchise embodies everything that’s great about the iconic slasher flicks of the 80s and 90s,” said Bloody Disgusting and Screambox Managing Director Brad Miska. “It’s nostalgic, it’s dark, it’s bloody, so it’s no wonder the movie—and especially Art the Clown—have become a staple for horror and Halloween fans alike. Fans are not prepared for what they’re about to experience.”
Director Damien Leone commented: “Just like our incredible fan base, Bloody Disgusting immediately recognized the film’s franchise potential and acknowledged Art the Clown as a new and formidable presence in the genre. It was encouraging to find the perfect home for our batshit crazy, no holds barred, balls-to-the-wall horror film after three arduous years of production, a global pandemic and endless gallons of blood. Our goal was to create a horror film that was boundary-pushing, fresh yet old-school and demented as hell. You know…a film you can take the kids to! We are thrilled to finally answer that once dreaded question…’So, when does Terrifier 2 come out?!’”
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…
“Hugely gory and tons of nasty overkill of the women. One of the first female deaths is unconscionable in its protracted violence. The guy playing Art is a delight and I liked the creepy clown girl. Plus it was fun when it went all mystical at the end. But still 2 hours 20 minutes is insanity for a killer clown movie.” Geek Goddesses
“Ok, so the plot mechanics are flimsy. For example, our baddy still has no apparent motivation and attempts to personalise the conflict are vague to the point of self-parody. But then the reason people watch these movies isn’t the intricate plotting – it’s because they want to see a slasher. And they won’t be disappointed.” 4/5, Horror Cult Films
” …there’s a commendably high kill count, and Terrifier 2 isn’t afraid to kill off supporting characters that you might have assumed would make it to the final credits. Speaking of which, stick around for a lengthy post-credits sequence that is truly deranged, ending the film with a belter of a final image. Thornton is clearly the main attraction of Terrifier 2, but LaVera and Fullam both do terrific work…” 3/5, Nerdly
” …the core audience will get precisely what they came to see. Terrifier 2’s kills repeatedly up the ante, delivering some of the most horrific gore sequences ever seen in a horror film. And, like much of Terrifier 2, it goes on and on, eventually reaching an astonishing crescendo of violence. Somehow there’s another hour or so after that too, repetition eventually blunting Art’s mean little thrills.” 3/5, Starburst
