I watched Terrifier 2 to see how terrifying it really is. This is what I thought about the most controversial scenes.

  • “Terrifier 2” made headlines for being incredibly violent and making the audience pass out.

  • Follows Art the Clown (David Howard Thornton) after his revival in the town of Miles County.

  • As a horror fan, I watched “Terrifier 2” to see if it was as strong as everyone says.

In the past few weeks, “Terrifier 2” has made headlines around the world due to reports that audiences have vomited and passed out from watching the sequel to director Damien Lyon. It’s the kind of publicity that some studio executives don’t even dream about.

All the talk about the horrific return of Art the Clown (David Howard Thornton) brought “Terrifier 2” in over $7 million on a crowdfunded budget of $250,000. Killer clowns are good for business – just ask Stephen King.

The film sees the art return to Miles County on Halloween and continues another bloody killing spree, while a supernatural force also gets involved in his terrifying reign.

After watching the first movie in a while, I decided to try “Terrifier 2” for myself to see if the controversial movie was really as gory and disturbing as recent reports have said. Luckily, I also picked the perfect night to dive into: Halloween. Yes, of course.

The first kill sets the tone.

I was immediately met with screams and bloodstains confirming that, yes, this was going to be a jungle where Art the Clown is strangely resurrected in the mortuary and the Doctor is killed.

It’s a welcome return from the eight years since the original “Terrifier,” but I’m clearly on a bumpy ride considering the opening murder is to rip the Doctor’s head in half.

The fact that the notorious clown still refuses to make any noise is incredibly scary. At least with talking bad guys we can understand their thinking or get into their heads, but with art it’s all meaningless.

He does this simply for fun. I have a relatively strong stomach for blood (thanks to my great horror education from my dad as a teenager) but this seems to push some limits…

At least it gives us a fun synthesis score to keep up with the bloody mess. Although I have to say, some shows are all over the place. This was never an Oscar nominee, but it wasn’t.

Art is unpredictable boredom.

Now look, I already knew the killer clown was going to be a psychopath thanks to the first movie, but I’m totally here because Art is a messy little imp in the sequel. Whether you’re sitting naked in the sink making friends with a ghost, or playing games and trying on sunglasses at the fancy clothing store.

Fashion store worker Jonathan Davis sure speaks for everyone when Art asks, “Sir, what are you doing?” To be fair, I don’t think Art really knows what it intends to do. It’s all very spontaneous, which is refreshing and intense at the same time.

The second big kill cements the fact that “Terrifier 2” is pessimistic and revolting in a way that reminds me why the horror genre can be great in the first place.

Art’s gleefully penetration of a worker’s neck isn’t the worst on-screen murder ever, but it has that unpolished domestic feel that looks bad.

Sienna (Lauren LaVera)’s role in it all definitely puts her as some kind of avenging angel if this outfit she’s working on is anything to do. But she should definitely get into the cosplay industry… she would have killed at Comic-Con.

So far, I haven’t found “Terrifier 2” at all intimidating. If anything, I was totally relieved just watching the art mill across town being a killer little brat. There are leaps and bounds about whether or not the kill is undoubtedly worth the killing. But this is all about to change.

The controversy is completely justified.

The sight of people fainting and vomiting is absolutely unforgiving, and I don’t blame them at all. Now, it is worth noting that I did not see “Terrifier 2” on the big screen with a loud sound system – I was comfortable at home and watched it on my laptop.

I can imagine seeing Art eviscerate Allie (Casey Hartnett) brutally in her bedroom with the inevitable roar of surround speakers and the big screen is a harrowing experience, to say the least.

Even on my laptop, it sounded like an endurance test. Art not only scalps the poor girl, he breaks both of her arms and even rips one off. For dogs of gorse it is an absolute treat, but for the general public, it is absolutely relentless.

Even when Art seems bored with his game and quits, he comes back to make her ordeal even more shocking.

If I’m honest, the scene just sunk into my mind. It’s as if you can’t stop picking up scabies or staring at a car accident—even though you know you have to look away.

The more I thought about it, the more I blushed at the art pouring bleach and salt into Allie’s wounds.

The likes of “Hellraiser”, “The Hills Have Eyes” and “Saw” have nothing in this in terms of blood volume. This is much closer to the likes of “Audition”, “Martyrs” or “A Serbian Film”.

The scary ghost girl’s eyes stared into my soul. amazing.

The film expands the mythology surrounding the art dramatically thanks to the arrival of a frightening ghost girl whose piercing eyes felt like they were staring into my soul. Thanks for the fuel nightmare, Damien Lyon.

Although the epilogue seems satisfying as Art gets his own taste, there are still some moments that are designed to make a lasting impact on the audience. One scene, in particular, had me cut off my legs and exhale in an “oh my god” way. Why did you have to go to the crotch, art?

In the end, Terrifier 2 acts like a rollercoaster ride, creating tension, before pushing the audience up to the art level.

While I didn’t pass out, vomit, or need to call 911, I definitely needed to hug my dog ​​as the credits kicked in (thanks for the emotional support, Jasper).

However, the director has one last trick for fans in the middle of the credits that shouldn’t be missed. The Marvel Cinematic Universe will never generate something as gruesome and disturbing as this about the future of “Terrifier,” that’s for sure.

My God.
