Art the Clown Returns in Terrifier 3, Halloween 2024 Release
Excited fans who have the chance to catch the re-release of Terrifier 2 in theaters this week are in for a special treat. They will get the first sneak peek and a glimpse of the poster for the highly anticipated Terrifier 3. This upcoming installment, featuring Art the Clown, known for his chilling antics, is set to make its debut in the following year. Horror enthusiasts can now mark their calendars, as Terrifier 3 is slated for release on the spookiest night of the year, October 25, 2024—Halloween.
In this holiday-themed horror extravaganza, Art the Clown will once again take center stage, as he embarks on a terrifying spree, spreading chaos among the unsuspecting residents of Miles County. All of this unfolds as they peacefully prepare to drift off to sleep on the most tranquil of nights, Christmas Eve. The premise of the film might be shrouded in secrecy, but fans can rest assured that the formidable duo of Lauren LaVera and David Howard Thornton is expected to make a comeback.
LaVera, who portrays the final girl Sienna Shaw, and Thornton, masterfully embodying the iconic Art the Clown, have swiftly become synonymous with the slasher genre. Their epic showdown in Terrifier 2 last Halloween cemented their status as the Batman and Joker of this thrilling world. When discussing the highly anticipated third installment, director Damian Leone tantalizingly stated:
“Terrifier 2‘s remarkable success was driven not only by the insatiable appetite for new and thrilling horror icons like Art the Clown but also by its unparalleled theatrical release and marketing, along with its unyielding spirit. In a cinematic landscape where risk-taking is scarce, I will continue to push boundaries in Terrifier 3, and I can’t wait for you to see what’s in store for Art the Clown.”
Brad Miska, the Managing Director at Bloody Disgusting, commented, “With an unwavering dedication to fulfilling the fans’ desires, Leone has masterminded a completely autonomous follow-up. Terrifier 3 promises to feature more brutal deaths, a significantly larger budget, and an even more mind-bending storyline.”
Art the Clown’s Already a Christmas Icon
While we eagerly await the release of Terrifier 3 next year, Art the Clown is already making his mark on the Christmas season. Art’s festive spirit is unmatched, even surpassing Mariah Carey‘s. Recently, the horror-themed clothing company, Terror Threads, unveiled a brand-new Christmas collection inspired by Terrifier. In this collection, Art can be seen adorning a Christmas tree in his signature blood-soaked style and, of course, engaging in some rather unconventional activities, including the dismemberment of Santa Claus, a beloved holiday icon. It’s safe to say that Art is the new king of Christmas.
As we anticipate what writer-director Damien Leone, along with the entire Terrifier team, has in store for us in the upcoming spooky season, it’s worth noting that Terrifier 2 has received critical acclaim. With a certified fresh rating of 85% on Rotten Tomatoes, the film achieved remarkable success at the box office. Despite its modest budget of just $250,000, Terrifier 2 grossed a whopping $11 million during its original theatrical run.
