COVID delays release of Terrifier 2, everything we know so far
If you were one of the many horror fans who were hoping to watch Art the Clown on the big screen this spooky season, it’s easy to see why you may feel disappointed hearing that Terrifier 2 won’t be gracing the big screens in 2020. However, while many things have changed throughout the pandemic your excitement for this installment shouldn’t, as the sequel is expected to unravel a bit of the backstory driving Art the Clown’s demonic madness. We’re certain that it will be worth the wait!
When is the film set to release?
In a perfect world without a pandemic, the sequel would have been in theatres leading up to the days before Halloween. Although, like many productions in 2020, COVID-19 enforced a push back resulting in months of delayed filming, leaving this horror creation to pick up the pieces and finish its final stretch of development.
The new goal is to have Terrifier 2 completed by early 2021. However, there’s still no confirmation of a new release date.
What we know so far
Terrifier 2 has been highly anticipated since 2018, when writer and director Damien Leone announced the return of Art the Clown for the genre’s newest installment. From where things were left, the deranged killer, despite a bullet to the head, was able to reanimate and kill the doctor in charge of overseeing his body at the morgue. So, whether our antagonist is a raging psychotic, a demonic entity, or something else entirely, it’s clear he is not dead at the end of the first movie.
The current synopsis of Terrifier 2 reveals that Art the Clown was somehow resurrected by what is described as a “sinister entity”, which allows him to return to Miles County, where he will hunt down and destroy a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night. As the body count rises, the siblings will fight to stay alive while uncovering the nature of the villain’s evil intent. So, get ready to peel back the layers of what makes this creepy killer tick!
David Howard Thorton will once again play Art the Clown and Samantha Scaffidi will return as Victoria Heyes, the character who was left horribly disfigured by Art’s attack.
So, since the final scenes are being wrapped up in the coming weeks as production has been allowed to remain in place under safety guidelines, a teaser can also be expected to be unleashed to the public very soon.
How can you prepare for this new horror installment?
