In recent years, the Terrifier franchise has been a blood-soaked delight for horror enthusiasts, thanks to director Damien Leone’s knack for unleashing the diabolical Art the Clown. But before you can sink your teeth into Terrifier 3 next year, get ready for a spine-tingling treat this November as last year’s Halloween sensation, Terrifier 2, returns to the big screen earlier than expected. Hold onto your Halloween costumes, because Cineverse and Bloody Disgusting have just announced that Terrifier 2’s re-release date has been bumped up a week, from November 8 to November 1, 2023. Horror aficionados, rejoice – it’s like an extended Halloween celebration!
Director Damien Leone couldn’t contain his excitement about this surprise re-release, stating, “This year has been unlike anything we could have imagined. To see all the love Terrifier 2 has received and the excitement this release has inspired from fans new and old is truly beyond words.” He went on to add, “As a thank you to them and the many people who worked tirelessly on this release, we want to bring it back to the big screen where it belongs. And more than that, while fans eagerly await the release of Terrifier 3 next year, we will be including some special surprises because a year is just too long to wait.”
‘Terrifier 2’ Cements Art’s Nightmarish Legacy
While we can’t wait to see what those special surprises entail, getting fans back into the theater won’t be a gruesome task. Terrifier 2 breathed fresh, blood-spattered life into the slasher genre. Set a year after the original film, the sequel expanded Art the Clown’s lore by introducing “The Pale Girl” and his arch-nemesis, Sienna. Lauren LaVera’s remarkable portrayal of Sienna quickly catapulted her into the annals of horror history as one of the most beloved final girls. Terrifier 2 served up a heady cocktail of gruesome kills that would make even the bravest horror fan wince, but it also added an unexpected layer of depth and emotion to the story. Art’s malevolence takes on a chilling new dimension in this installment. Sienna and Art are like the Batman and Joker of horror, with their enigmatic, almost mythological connection infusing a crimson freshness into the slasher genre. While the plot of Terrifier 3 remains shrouded in mystery, it promises to delve deeper into this intriguing dynamic.
When Can We Expect ‘Terrifier 3’?
Mark your calendars for late 2024 because that’s when Terrifier 3 is slated to make its spine-tingling debut, with filming set to commence this winter. Terrifier 2 proved to be an indie darling, raking in over $15 million at the box office on a modest $250,000 budget. This success even spurred a theatrical re-release of the original Terrifier this past summer, where it pulled in nearly $340,000 against its meager $35,000 budget. All indications point to both the re-release of Terrifier 2 and the arrival of Terrifier 3 in 2024 as monumental wins for the horror genre. While we eagerly await Art the Clown’s return to terrify us all over again, you can catch Terrifier 2 streaming on Screambox. Prepare for the nightmares!
