A friend of mine was very insistent on seeing Terrifier 2, and it luckily came to our small town theatre. Moments before heading over there, he mentioned that he hates clowns. Considering it’s a slasher film about a murderous clown… I was surprised at this last minute revelation.
The film definitely had its moments, but it didn’t really compare to “Irréversible” or “Martyrs”. There were long gaps between horror scenes, and most deaths weren’t any more gratuitous than “Hostel”. I do think it was stylistically interesting, and the effects were fantastic.
