Terrifier 2 expands to 1000+ screens before heading to Screambox

Released to theatres back on October 6th, writer/director Damien Leone’s Terrifier 2 has managed to rack up over $5 million at the domestic box office. A huge accomplishment for an unrated indie movie. Now that Halloween is almost upon us, Terrifier 2 is set to expand to its highest theatre count yet. This weekend, it will be showing on over 1000 screens nationwide! Then on Monday – which happens to be Halloween – the movie will begin streaming exclusively on the Screambox service.

Terrifier 2 tells the following story: 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 night.  As the body count rises, the siblings fight to stay alive while uncovering the true nature of Art’s evil intent. 

Terrifier (buy a copy of HERE) star David Howard Thornton reprises the role of the bloodthirsty Art the Clown and is joined in the cast of Terrifier 2 by Lauren LaVera (Iron Fist), Elliott Fullam (Instinct), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Tamara Glynn (Halloween 5), Samantha Scaffidi (American Fango), Griffin Santopietro (Cobra Kai), and Chris Jericho (Killroy Was Here).

This sequel is actually the third feature with Art the Clown in it. Before making Terrifier, Leone introduced the character in short films that were included in the 2013 horror anthology All Hallows’ Eve.

While I didn’t enjoy Terrifier 2 very much myself (you can read my 4/10 review HERE), I am very glad to see an unrated horror movie having so much success in theatres.
