Terrifier 2 Storyline
A man watches a tiny TV while talk show anchor Monica Brown speaks with a horribly scarred woman who is the lone survivor of a slaughter that occurred on Halloween. Brown said the killer, dubbed “Art the Clown,” may still be alive because his body vanished from the mortuary. The scarred woman, though, claims she witnessed his death.
The man kicks the TV with such force that the glass breaks, and then proceeds to fill a trash bag with knives. When Monica calls her boyfriend following the interview, she criticises the interviewee’s appearance. The disfigured woman who had been listening in on their conversation suddenly launches an attack on Monica when she hangs up, killing her instantly by gouging out her eyes and laughing hysterically.
While stumbling drunkenly back to Dawn’s car after a Halloween party, Tara and her companion Dawn saw a mysterious man in a clown costume. Art the Clown then follows them inside a nearby pizzeria. After a while, the restaurant owner forcibly removes Art from the premises because he smeared his own excrement all over the toilet walls.
After seeing that one of Dawn’s tyres has been slashed, the girl phones Tara’s sister Vicky to come to get them. As she waits, Tara asks Mike, a pest control technician, if she can use the facilities in the abandoned apartment complex where he is now working. Tara enters the building and meets a woman (named “Cat Person”) who is convinced the doll she is holding is her own baby.
Upon his return to the pizzeria, Art murders and mutilates the two employees before kidnapping Dawn. Tara runs into Art shortly after entering the apartment complex. Following her inside the enclosed mechanic’s garage, he stabs her repeatedly with a knife. Art poisons her when she tries to inform Mike. When Tara comes to, she finds herself chained to a chair, and Art has found Dawn hanging from the ceiling, face down.
He uses a hacksaw to cut Dawn in half while Tara watches helplessly. Art pulls out a firearm and kills Tara dead after she tries to flee. The Cat Lady has seen this and urges Mike to notify the authorities. Mike writes her off as crazy, but Art quickly puts him out with a hammer blow. Cat Lady looks over and sees Art holding her doll. She tries to comfort Art as a mother would in an appeal for him to return so she can care for him again.

Where Can You Watch Damien Leone’s Other Films?
Terrifier 2 is almost here, but don’t let that stop you from checking out Art the Clown’s gruesome antics now. While Art did not make his feature debut until Terrifier 2, the 2016 prequel serves as a direct predecessor. Both Tara (Jenna Kanell) and Dawn (Catherine Corcoran) are young ladies who, after a night of Halloween revelry, are terrorised by a man dressed as a clown.
Tara gets the chills at their initial meeting with him, but as they try to leave, they find that Dawn’s car tyre has been slashed. Tara, realising she needs to use the restroom while waiting for her sister to pick them up, approaches a nearby apartment building’s maintenance man and begs him to let her inside so she may use the building’s facilities.
Hesitantly, he lets her in, explaining that everyone had to leave because of a prearranged pest control treatment. Soon after, Art, the Clown appears and begins attacking the women, torturing them for his sick amusement. Victoria, Tara’s sister (Samantha Scaffidi), arrives to take them up, but she’s too late; Art has already hidden among the wreckage he’s left behind. She must either find a method to kill Art or hide until she can be rescued.
It’s official: Damien Leone wants to make a third Terrifier film, and David Howard Thornton will return as Art the Clown. Further chapters are planned to elaborate on Art’s backstory and motivations, and he has hinted that there may be enough material for Terrifier 3 to warrant making a fourth Terrifier film.
