Art the Clown is coming back to carve up some poor saps this Halloween via Bloody Disgusting & Screambox! The two have acquired all North American rights to the ultra gory sequel starring the sadistic clown.
From writer-director Damien Leone (All Hallows’ Eve), the sequel welcomes back David Howard Thornton as demonic killer Art the Clown. Following his gruesome demise in the first film, a sinister presence has brought Art back to life to rein terror on the residents of Miles County. On Halloween night, he returns to the unassuming town and sets his sights on fresh prey: a teenage girl and her little brother.
The movie introduces Lauren LaVera as Sienna. Also returning is Samantha Scaffidi who will reprise her role as Victoria Heyes. Horror staple Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) also makes an appearance.
The film marks the fifth on-screen appearance of Art the Clown. Originally created for a pair of low-budget bloody shorts, the character made his feature-length debut in Leone’s 2013 movie All Hallows’ Eve.
“The Terrifier franchise embodies everything that’s great about the iconic slasher flicks of the 80s and 90s,” said Bloody Disgusting and Screambox Managing Director Brad Miska. “It’s nostalgic, it’s dark, it’s bloody, so it’s no wonder the movie—and especially Art the Clown—have become a staple for horror and Halloween fans alike. Fans are not prepared for what they’re about to experience.”
