Art will slash his bloody way onto the big screen again.
Apparently, the voices of gore fans everywhere have been heard, and Terrifier 2 will return to more than 700 theaters this weekend, according to a report on Collider.
The blood-soaked sequel’s theatrical window was originally planned only through this past Monday, but fan demand has extended its run. When the film premiered Oct. 6 on 800 screens nationwide, it raked in $1.4 million against its $250,000 budget.
The film–from writer/director Damien Leone–brings back David Howard Thornton as the maniacal Art the Clown and Samantha Scaffidi as Victoria Heyes. Joining the duo in this splatter-fest are Lauren LaVera, Sarah Voigt, Kailey Hyman, Casset Hartnett, Elliot Fullam and Felissa Rose.
This time around, Art is resurrected to pursue Sienna Shaw (LaVera) and her younger brother Jonathan (Fullam) on Halloween night, “one year after mutilating sole survivor Victoria (Scaffidi) and committing suicide when confronted by police,” according to the synopsis.
Leone said his goal with this sequel was to “create a horror film that was boundary-pushing, fresh and yet old-school. And demented as hell.” Quite a bucket list.
