Art the Clown has been scaring horror movie lovers all over the world and now it’s time for viewers to watch the film from the safety of their homes in the US and Canada.

Terrifier 2 began making headlines in the Halloween month of October when fans claimed the movie was so scary, people were fainting and throwing up while watching it in cinemas.

Branded as one of the best scary movies of all time, the movie follows the terrifying actions of an evil clown who haunts a sister and brother on the night of Halloween.

The film is a full two and half hours of gore, blood, horrifying scenes, and a sprinkle of humour here and there.

Critics also enjoyed the film, with Matt Donato of IGN saying: “Terrifier 2 is the pinnacle in terms of indie slasher kills sequences, which are more than appealing enough to please genre fans.”

Terrifier 2 plot – what’s it all about?

If you’re not familiar with the movie franchise and feel like taking on the scary movie, here’s the plot.

Resurrected by sinister energy, Art the Clown returns to Miles County, where he did his first killing spree in the original movie, to do just that again.

While the killer clown remains hauntingly silent throughout the whole movie, Art chooses his next victims in the form of a teenage girl and her younger brother who he terrorises all Halloween night.

Art the Clown first appeared in the 2008 short film The 9th Circle, which was written and directed by Damien Leone.

He then made a short film called Terrifier, which featured the clown in 2011, before turning it into a feature-length movie in 2016.

Leone has now helmed the hugely successful Terrifier 2 and has already admitted that a sequel and even possibly a fourth film could be in the works.
