    All gore and no play makes art a dull boy
    Most times when a new horror movie try's too hard to be that 80s classic slasher film, it's usually super cheesy and ruins the movie, but this movie nailed it, the heads look so clearly fake, but that's what's great about it. If you go into it looking for this amazing plot with amazing acting, you'll hate it , but if you go into looking to just chill and watch a fun movie then you'll love it, there's just something about when a horror character has a sense of humour, Art definitely gives you some Kruger vibes, but not too the point it's ripping them off, he's his own killer and he nails it. I would definitely recommend this too anyone and I'm super excited to see Terrifier 3.

    Could have been great...
    I saw this movie after watching Terrifier 1, mostly from curiocity about Art the Clown who I find very interesting as a horror character. After reading many comments and reviews, I hesitated to watch it at first. When I finally decided it to, I did it prejudiced, thinking it would be utter garbage. So that may explain why it gave me more than I expected.

    To be clear, I am in no way a fan of gore and splatter scenes in horror movies. I find them superfluous, a cheap, non-brilliant way to shock and equal to porn. But I think people exaggerate what they saw in Terrifier 2. Gore scenes looked fake, very fake, irrational and laughable to the point of being comical. And I really wonder how people consider this movie made "for psycopathic sadists" and at the same time consider movies like "The House that Jack Built" a masterpiece. For those who havent seen it, imho, it contains the most realistic murder scenes I ve ever seen in my life and Lans von Trier didnt use even 1% of the fake blood used in Terrifier 2. When I saw Terrifier 2, I laughed at it's fake gore scenes. While watching "THTJB", I almost threw up. Honestly.

    Gore aside, the movie has some strong foundations. It has a very dark, unsettling atmosphere at times, scenes that are genuinely creepy, a color palette that reminds me of 70s-80s horror movies we used to watch in VHS, some nice music tracks and an interesting universe around the supernatural clown that has a lot to give to horror fans if expanded properly. But at the same time it has amateurish acting at large, laughable scenes that are so badly shot they look embarrassing and even more laughable script, which looks like it was written by a 15 year old. There are moments Terrifier 2 feels like a great horror movie and before you let that conclusion root inside your mind, there are scenes that make it seem like a Youtube video from a horror movie enthusiast.

    To be fair, Art the Clown has potential. He is a great horror character and in the right hands, he would have nothing to be jealous of other horror personalities like Michael Myers, Jason Voorher or Freddy Krueger. But for some reason, his creator has chosen to put him in a road of endless, immature and unecessary bloodbath which annoys more than it scares the viewer.

    To sum up, this movie has a complex flavor. I both like it and hate it. I ll give it a 6/10 instead of 5 because bad acting, needless gore and silly script aside, it has some strong moments and great antagonist.

    I do not recommend this movie because it does not represent reality. The movie is classified as a horror movie and not a fictional horror movie. I did not like the story of the movie and even the scenario as well.

    The story of the clown is not at all close to reality and does not reflect it

    There is a lot of blood and the story is fictional. Horror does not mean that there is a lot of blood, but horror is enough for you to sit and receive a call from a stranger, this in itself is horror, or for your account to be hacked, this is horror.

    I watched parts one and two and didn't like any of them.

    As most people, I decided to watch Terrifier 2 based on the hype sorrounding it. I was already impressed by the first Terrifier because, based on the very low budget, it was still able to deliver a more interesting film than most major studios' blockbusters.

    (And, yes, it's not everyone's cup of tea. It's violent, it's gore, it's kind of trashy, but you probably know that first hand.)

    The second Terrifier comes with a higher budget (still kind of low) and it shows: more characters, more locations, and a more intringuing and complex story. If the first Terrifier was based purely on gore and the performance of Art the Clown, the new one introduces supernatural elements to explain (yet vaguely) the origin of Art.

    Terrifier will probably beocme a franchise if a new sequel comes. I'd watch it in a heartbeat.

    Who's laughing now?
    I liked the first Terrifier (2016), it is not the best thing I have seen but I was entertained and had fun with it. I liked Terrifier 2 (2022) more than the first movie, and thought it was fun but creepy to watch considering the long runtime.

    David Howard Thorton as Art the Clown was great in this movie, he has more things to do because of the long runtime and he uses mime experience well. He was funny, creepy, disturbing, and weird to watch along with just his presence being disturbing.

    The movie is gory and brutal in many ways. Art the Clown does a lot of brutal kills in this movie that will shock people who cannot handle it, which I could understand considering all the talk about the movie and the content it shows in the movie.

    The movie gives a backstory to Art the Clown that is interesting, and there are certain scenes that connect to it in some way. When you get to the halfway point of the movie you will be on edge because you do not know what to happen next, also watch the post credits scene.

    I liked Terrifier 2 (2022) because it was gory, creepy, funny, random, weird, and it has good acting leading to a memorable final girl. Watch Terrifier (2016) first before you watch Terrifier 2 (2022), but only if you can handle it and only if you can handle a lot of gore.

    Let's hope this is the end of Art the clown
    This is a sadistic and extremely violent film, for the sake of being sadistic and violent. It's a completely brain dead story, although the acting is a bit better than I expected. I wonder what mental disorder people suffer from who like the ultra torture murders that happen here? You who do that, you need a doctor! That leads to the question of why I watched it. And the answer is simple: too many good reviews once again tricked me into seeing something I turned out to hate. Let's hope that this is the end of Art the clown that he has spent all his lives once and for all and that there will be no more sequels for psychopathic sadists to watch. You have been warned. You are welcome.

    And we slash again
    Is terrifier 2 a gore movie or horror movie ? Or has gore in film now become so glued to horror genre that it can't be separated from within ?

    Art the Clown ( David Howard Thornton ) an insane maniac with the duty of terrifying individuals around Miles County begins his duty of brutish killings. The clown is a silent creature which personifies death it is common knowledge that death does it work with silence. The Clown being the main character in the movie is not a hero or anti hero but just a gruesome antagonist. That being said the audience cannot be expected to feel any sympathy towards the Clown only if you are a die hard fan then you will love to see blood been splattered.

    An angel embodied in the character of Sienna Shaw played by Lauren LaVera will rise to save Miles County from this gruesome murder but before this conclusion certain points in the film could given credit for; the imagery and lighting and the dialogue which helps to create a dramatic current which gives birth to a constructive narrative. This is going to be a slashing adventure for viewers so please do watch.

    The horror equivalent of The Room
    Don't jump onto this hype train of a horrible movie. The gore and practical effects are great but that's all this movie has. The acting, the story, the dialog and the run time are relentlessly mind numbing and so horrible that I almost turned it off. I'm a fan of gore porn myself but this was so bad that I will never watch it again, even if it is one of the most gory movies of all time. The acting and dialog were so bad that all I kept thinking about was The Room(2003). Did Tommy Wiseau direct this? If it was a short, self aware gore fest with fun characters then this would be a home run but it's a drawn out bore fest that fell short of horror entertainment because of how bad it was. Not even "so bad it's good" bad.

    Not as terrifying as it is awesome...
    You know why you watched this movie or want to watch this movie. Plain and simple. It's not the acting. It's not the storyline or plot (though this movie actually has one behind it unlike its predecessor). It's the kills. The bloody, gory, graphic murder scenes... and the film does not disappoint. However, I will say this, one of my friends with whom I watched the movie said in the trailer, a woman has one of her breasts gruesomely removed but that scene is not featured in the normal version so if you watch this, watch the uncut version for sure. Anyways, the acting... terrible. The plot... thickens... sequels to come. The action... amazing. The dialogue... ehh. Anyways, there is only one kill worth remembering from the first film in which the clown uses a chainsaw to cut a woman in half while she hangs upside down. However, in this movie, all of the kills are so memorable and similar that you will hopefully have terrible nightmares about them. There are some very artistic shots in the movie which are highly commendable. Lastly, let me just say this, this movie blows Jordan Peele's "Nope" out of the water and I'm sure even he would agree.

    Horrible Acting
    The amount of dissatisfaction I felt after watching the first thirty minutes of this film to realize it has the worst acting I've seen in a while and is only popular because of killing scenes was indescribable. This entire movie's reputation relies solely on the gore scenes it possesses but after the stupendously long amount of time we have to see these it gets extremely boring. As for the storyline, there's not much I can say. There just doesn't seem to be one at all and it looks like we are just watching someone going on a killing rampage. I honestly could not understand what all this hype was about. Overall, the only thing that makes me not give this a 2-star or lower rating is the gore scenes as they are some of the nastiest I've seen.
