As we told you yesterday, Art the Clown is returning in Damien Leone's sequel Terrifier 2, and though the film was already funded, an Indiegogo campaign was launched to raise additional funds for a "shocking" and "epic" gore sequence featuring, in Leone’s own words, "mass casualties."
Less than a day after the campaign launched, the $50,000 funding goal was absolutely destroyed by fans, who have thus far donated over $100,000 to make Terrifier 2 a bigger and gorier film. This means the funding goal has been more than 200% funded, which just goes to show you how popular the franchise really is among the horror community.
Leone explains the insane scene that will definitely make its way into the movie, "Without beating around the bush, I wrote an EPIC scene in the screenplay for Terrifier 2. Without spoiling all the juicy, gory details, the scene will involve mass casualties and the destruction of its location, BUT it is the context of the scene that truly makes it so original. We’re aiming to create a scene so shocking and iconic that people will talk about it for years to come. Imagine if Art the Clown was in charge of the prom mayhem in Carrie…meets David Lynch…meets Maniac….just sayin."
The director also noted that a mystery horror icon would appear in the film if the goal was exceeded, so it looks like that'll be happening as well!
In the sequel, "After being resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to Miles County where he must hunt down and destroy a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night. As the body count rises, the siblings fight to stay alive while uncovering the true nature of Art's evil intent."
