If you are not into gore, then the movie "Terrifier" may not be your cup of tea. The movie follows the character (killer) Art the Clown, who is nothing like Pennywise the Clown. In the movie "Terrifier," Art the Clown is seen as a man painting his face and dressing up as a clown. He goes out and stalks two women before going on a mass killing spree (filled with gore).
Now, it is important to note that one of the death scenes from the original "Terrifier" is pretty gruesome. I will not go into detail, as I do not want to cause you to cringe if you haven't seen this movie yet.
If you do not mind some gore and you enjoy watching horror movies, then you may have seen the original movie and waited quite a few years for "Terrifier 2" to be released.
Granted "Terrifier 2" only opened in a couple of theaters earlier this month, and the film just recently came to some Maine theaters, it has been all over the news...not in a good way.
Many people were talking about the film and how it is actually more gruesome than the first one. Some moviegoers were not prepared for scenes that were displayed on the big screen. People were seen walking out of the theater, while some theaters had to add bags due to the number of people that ended up throwing up during the film.
Of course, horror legend, Stephen King, has seen this gore-filled movie and had something to say. King of course is not new to a crazed killer clown, as he invented one of his own (Pennywise), so what did King think of Art the Clown that everyone is talking about? According to Twitter, he was a fan.
King is known to take to Twitter and state his honest opinion about everything. So, for "Terrifier 2" to only get "Grossin' you out old-school" must mean that the film is pretty good (and with a lot of scenes that may cause you to cringe).
There is no doubt that with King's nod of approval, more moviegoers will check out this film.
If you are interested in seeing "Terrifier 2," it is playing at the Patriot Cinemas (Nickelodeon Theater) in Portland, ME, and the Regal at the Fox Run Mall in Newington, NH. You can find showtimes and other locations here.
