Terrifier was the 2016 Indie horror smash that followed Art the Clown as he terrorized three young women on Halloween night. Following the success of the first movie, director Damien Leone turned to fans to get the necessary funding to make his ideas of a sequel become a reality. The funding goal was reached in no time at all, so now we can expect a super gory second installment of the story coming soon.
The funding goal for the second installment of Terrifier was $50,000 and currently the Indiegogo for the project has reached 200% of that with 567 backers pledging $100,173, and the campaign still has 40 days remaining.
In Terrifier 2…
“After being resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to Miles County where he must hunt down and destroy a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night. As the body count rises, the siblings fight to stay alive while uncovering the true nature of Art’s evil intent. “
The plea for funding for the movie was birthed from the director’s idea for a “most pivotal special effects-laden scene.” About the scene, the director wrote:
“Without beating around the bush, I wrote an EPIC scene in the screenplay for Terrifier 2 that we currently do not have enough money to shoot. Without spoiling all the juicy, gory details, the scene will involve mass casualties and the destruction of its location, BUT it is the context of the scene that truly makes it so original. We’re aiming to create a scene so shocking and iconic that people will talk about it for years to come. Imagine if Art the Clown was in charge of the prom mayhem in Carrie…meets David Lynch…meets Maniac….just sayin’.”
It was then explained that the money raised will go towards the construction of a large set, tons of special effects, stunts and FX make-up to achieve the envisioned blood and guts laden scene. For the price of $5000 you even had the opportunity to be killed by the clown himself, but unfortunately that opportunity has sold out. Despair not horror fans, you can still appear as an extra for $2000.
