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.

I adore Terrifier and this sequel looks like it’s going to be just as good. Also I love Art wearing the glasses in the new trailer

No other film I am more excited to see this year, absolutely love Art the clown... Well not love but.. you know what I mean. I like the movies but I wouldn't want to share a pot of tea. All jokes aside I think he is the most iconic supernatural horror villain of our time. I have been sold since All Hallows Eve which scared the hell out of me. I literally am excited like a child to see this, finally after all the push backs I wondered if it would ever reach our screen!. The fact everything I've heard how they are just amping everything up to 10 in this one, playing more on Art being a supernatural entity.. it is going to be insane.. (and demented..) 😳



28 days...6 hours...42 minutes...12 seconds
Too long for this type of movie. The first was only 90 minutes right? But it felt a lot longer to me.

I’ve just preordered the Terrifier 1&2 Blu-ray boxset on Amazon. It’s coming out 24th October. Can’t wait to see T2. Hopefully my local cinema will have it but so far there’s no sign of it being there

I interviewed Art the Clown himself, David Howard Thornton, as we talked about the new film.
