Terrifier 2

First is on Netflix. Thoughts? I don't mind some schlocky horror, especially if it's kinda deliberately absurd. Good example of the genre? Fun/funny/clever rather than just gross-out-for-its-own-sake?

Of course, I think it's great. It's made to look like a gritty 80s schlocky horror but it is very grizzly. And I was right when I was screaming about Art the Clown on his way to becoming a horror icon. Some horror experts are now saying the same thing.


So if you watch be prepared for some nasty gore. Yet it's fun. And that's probably why I've gotten flak elsewhere online for being a fan of Terrifier and Art the Clown. I got called a "homicidal maniac" and "oh my god what's wrong with you?"


Amd then there was my friend who ran from my apartment mid-movie saying he didn't feel safe. Granted, he was plastered...



Thanks. I might start it and see. It's a really fine line, I can really enjoy that kind of silly gore, but there's a subgenre of what I call "despair porn" that's subtly different in execution (no pun intended) that feels wildly different.



Thought the first one was pretty good. You might like it, Chris. I thought it was a little funny at times.

I'd call it vicious fun. It's definitely an 80s throwback, except nowadays we can see the gore whereas more often than not in the 80s they had to cutaway from it.


I really hope you like it!

What movies would you call despair porn? Like Martyrs?



That's a good example, maybe some of the Saw films, maybe Human Centipede. Hereditary for sure.

Then I understand what you mean. Terrifier isn't like that. It is mean, though, even if it is fun. Definitely the most brutal clown on film, in my opinion.
