Terrifier 2 is a 2022 American splatter slasher film written, directed, edited, and produced by Damien Leone, it is a sequel to Terrifier (2016), and is the third feature-length film to feature Art the Clown. It features the return of David Howard Thornton and Samantha Scaffidi, who respectively portrayed Art the Clown and Victoria Heyes in the first film, and stars Lauren LaVera, Elliott Fullam, Sarah Voigt, Kailey Hyman, and Casey Harnett.

SYNOPSIS: After being resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to the timid town of Miles County where he targets a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night — a year after the events of the first film.

CONCEPT: The film originates from a feature film concept Leone began developing shortly after filming his directorial debut short film The 9th Circle (2009). The concept of the planned film focused heavily on an angel-dressed heroine and ultimately fell apart, but after the release of Terrifier (2016), Leone wanted to bring the heroine back as the protagonist—she would evolve into Sienna, someone Leone describes as the "heart and soul" of Terrifier 2. Leone spent three months writing a character-driven screenplay following criticism of the first film's perceived lack of narrative.

PRODUCTION: Funding for the film was exacting as the script was more ambitious than the first film and required a bigger budget. Leone secured finances from private investors before filming, and he launched an Indiegogo campaign with a $50k goal to film a practical effects-driven scene. The campaign was a massive success, reaching over 430% of the initial goal with a total of $250k in donations. It is one of the numerous films impacted by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic with principal photography coming to a halt mid-2020 due to the pandemic lockdowns.

RELEASE: The film had its world premiere at the FrightFest on August 29, 2022, and was theatrically released in the United States on October 6, 2022, becoming a sleeper hit at the box office, grossing $7.9 million. It was met with generally positive reviews from critics, with praise for Thornton and LaVera's performances and many critics considering the film to be an improvement over its predecessor. The violent and gory sequences allegedly led to emergency services having to be called from viewers fainting and vomiting. The film began streaming exclusively on Bloody Disgusting's SCREAMBOX on Oct. 31.

SEQUEL: Both Leone and Thornton have confirmed that a Terrifier 3 is planned, along with further installments that will slowly build on Art's background and motives. In October 2022, Leone said he had an entire treatment for a third film but it "is getting so big that it could potentially split into a Part 4 because [he] wouldn't want to make another 2 hour 20 minute movie."
