In 2016, as a true phenomenon, expectations for Terrifier's sequel have only risen. The protagonist, the killer clown Art the Clown, first appeared in the short film The 9th Circle, followed by a 20-minute short film called Terrifier, which followed the feature film of the same title.
Damien Leone, the film's director, has always preferred a completely independent production that has allowed him to have almost unprecedented creative freedom and, thus, total control over his work...R-Rated to the song! We are here before a very gore slasherexplicit as can be and where you can showcase your skill as a practical special effects artist.
Trick or Treat in this Terrifier 2 exclusive clip.
Terrifier 2 is something very different that will surprise the audience, without missing the heinous murders or the tons of hemoglobin.
Leone wants to expand the franchise by giving Art a personal mythology, but this is not fully revealed in this second installment. Only mysteries, impossible situations, and a series of characters that orbit around it are revealed, although we do not know many details.
Terrifier 2 is exceptional on an aesthetic level: it took the film six years to get to filming, and there has been a significant improvement in the visual approach. Most of the footage we saw was gone, although there was some formal improvement in the two and a half-hour video.
It is a film that demonstrates ambition, that has a vocation for continuity, and that has made an effort to raise the bar for quality in all areas of production. A lot of meat has been put on the grill, and the wager has been made to abandon the B series' narrative and continue on on its long road.
"Everything is funny at the Clown Cafe."
Terrifier 2 is a straightforward film: Art returns to Miles County after inexplicably resurrecting and starts murdering again, using the Halloween party to escape from the places where he commits his horrifying crimes without fear of reprisals.
The clown this time appears accompanied by a girl dressed like him, who appears to communicate with no one other than him.
The Clown Cafe is becoming a creeping part of Sienna's nightmares... There's a hidden connection between her dreams and reality that she still can't comprehend...
The cruel and charismatic Art played by David Howard Thornton has a patina of paranormal overtones that make us wonder what his origins are.
This is as explicit as you'd expect (this sequel does maintain its originality in that regard), but it also includes a horrific new death similar to the one of the woman who was struck in half while hanging upside down. This is the already well-known "bedroom scene" which is by its own merit one of the greatest screen performances.
Damien Leone takes more steps forward by incorporating a new set of characters that will not be merely minced meat.
Lauren LaVera, a photogenic and talented actress, has been signed by Filmaboo to face the lunatic murderer. In fact, his martial arts training has enabled him to take charge of almost every scene in the film.
Because it is not a mere follow-up, but a more complex proposal with future goals, and those with sensitive stomachs will have a regular time, too! We will not go further without recommending Leone's discussion of Terrifier 3.
