There are plenty of horror movies that leave you frightened and struggling to sleep – but have you ever heard of people fainting, throwing up and walking out of the cinema after being so terrified by a film?

Over the last few years, there has been a rise in critically acclaimed scary films that have gone under the radar.

Movies such as His HouseThe Strays and Unlocked have all been praised for their disturbing scenes.

However, none of the films has topped a certain horror that left audiences throwing up when watching it.

Watch the trailer for the disturbing movie below…

Terrifier 2 follows Art the Clown as he haunts a teenage girl and her brother on Halloween night.

It was recently released in cinemas in the US and currently has a 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Since coming out, Terrifier 2 has received heaps of praise with some calling it the ‘best horror movie of the year’.

One fan explains: “Terrifier 2 is now in theatres and it’s likely the bloodiest, bonkers, most brutal horror flick you’ll see all year. An epic 2.5 hours of gory mayhem that annihilates boundaries.

“If you were a fan of the first film, don’t miss your chance to see this on the big screen.”

A second fan adds: “Terrifier 2 you have truly outdone yourself.  So much chaos. So much camp. 2022 has been solidified as the greatest year in horror movie history.”

Someone else expresses: “I watched this film in theatres last night. Completely sold-out show. Was easily the best horror film I have seen in the last decade.

“Effects, story, music, actors, everything. Just amazing. Bravo.”

Another says: “Terrifier 2 has the most gnarly, gruesome practical effects in years. Casual horror fans should approach with caution, as this one is for the gorehounds.”

However, people are also being warned how disturbing it is with people fainting in the cinema and ambulances being called out to screenings.

One viewer shared a photo of his friend being attended to by medics, along with the caption: “My friend passed out and the theatre called an ambulance. Highly recommended.”

Another individual tweets: “Holy s***! Terrifier 2 was fantastic! Definitely not for the weak stomachs! Someone actually fainted during my screening of this movie.”

A third viewer adds: Terrifier 2 was an amazing gory mess. The guy behind me passed out cold and crashed into my chair, another guy left because he didn’t feel good, I overheard him say and walking out the theatre door I heard a guy puking hard and loud in the bathroom.”

Someone else says: “Movie-goers are reportedly throwing up at the theatre due to some of the sequences in Terrifier 2. This is seriously one of the best years for horror films ever.”

Steve Barton, one of the producers of Terrifier 2 posted on his Twitter page: “This movie contains scenes of graphic violence and brutal depictions of horror.

“Viewers who are faint of heart, prone to light headaches or have weak stomachs are advised to take extreme caution.
