A maniacal clown named Art, terrorizes three young women on Halloween night and everyone else who stands in his way.
Terrifier will premiere at the Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival on September 28, 2017.
The Terrifier trailer is terrifying if it’s not anything else. The introduction scene lists the definition for Coulrophobia, which is a fear of clowns. Art the Clown, the main character in Terrifier gives that term good use. The opening scene features Art sharpening his tools. These blood stained items indicate he has been using them for more than housework.
The following scene features two women, one of which is paranoid. Their car got tampered with and now stranded on the side of the road. This obvious from the conversation about the Clown. It cuts back to Art, who is still getting his tools ready.
Following this interwoven sequence, the trailer jumps into the terrifying clips where the women running and fighting for their lives. The violence is brutal in this sequence. Art is sadistic. His torture and killing mechanisms are heavy.
Art the Clown first appeared in All Hallowe’s Eve, also directed by Damien Leone. This film centers a baby sitter who lets two adolescents watch a suspicious VHS left in one of their trick-or-treat bags. The film then transfers to feature an anthology with three tales of terror. Art is a homicidal clown that lurks within the backstories of the anthology.
David Howard Thorton portrays Art the Clown in Terrifier. Based on the trailer, he looks to do the role justice.
The Terrrifier trailer looks like the key will be practical effects, which is a great choice for this film. The special effects look amazing. The violence and kill scenes are very exciting, and if they are anything like in All Hallow’s Eve, I think viewers will be in for a treat here. Especially the gore hounds. Leone punches for violence and gore. There was one scene in All Hallow’s Eve that was even hard for me to watch. This is one of the creepiest clowns in Horror cinema and in all time.
