Terrifier 2: The film franchise making horror fans ‘faint in fear’ - how to watch it this Halloween, cast list
and live on Freeview channel 276
Terrifier has cemented its place as one of the scariest and most gut-wrenching horror franchises in history when it first hit our screens in 2016. But now Art the Clown is back for blood in Terrifier 2 - just in time for Halloween.
After a combination of private investment and a crowdfunding campaign, Terrifier 2’s release date was officially confirmed. The movie was released at FrightFest, hitting a limited number of cinemas across the US from August 29, and has been incredibly well received.
Rotten Tomatoes has rated the movie a high 87%, whilst IMDB has given Terrifier 2 a solid 6.5 out of 10. Letterboxd awarded the horror a 3.3 out of 5 whilst it has a Metacritic viewer score of 7.8 out of 10.
Viewers have taken to the sheer gore and jump scares that has caused them to literally faint in fear, as well as vomiting. It got to the point that Damien Leone, who is the director of Terrifier, had to come out and say: “I do not want people getting hurt during the movie. Listen, I would have loved to have a couple of walk-outs, I think that’s sort of a badge of honour because it is an intense movie, I don’t want people fainting. It’s surreal.”
The spooky film centres on the nightmarish horror villain of Art the Clown, who is not only sadistic and murderous but also incredibly frightening. Especially when backed by its creepy synth soundtrack, Art - who is played by David Howard Thornton - does not speak a single word throughout the movie.
Horror fanatics will be happy to know that even though Terrifier 2 has not been released in UK cinemas, it is now available to stream from the comfort of your own home. And with the arrival of Halloween, what better film to binge on the scariest day of the calendar year.
