Halloween season will be extended this year thanks to the return of the unrated mega-slasher “Terrifier 2” to theaters nationwide on November 8. The news was announced on Monday by Cineverse, in partnership with Bloody Disgusting, with the promise of several surprises.

“Terrifier 2” is the much-buzzed-about sequel to the ultra-gory slasher hit “Terrifier,” which was written and directed by Damien Leone (“All Hallows Eve”). The film marked the next horrifying chapter in the Art the Clown saga; in which the demonic killer, portrayed by David Howard Thornton, returns with a vengeance. The film was originally released theatrically in October 2022 and pulled in over $11 Million at the domestic box office.

Director Damien Leone expressed his excitement about the upcoming re-release, saying, “This year has been unlike anything we could have imagined. To see all the love “Terrifier 2” 2 has received and the excitement this release has inspired from fans new and old, is truly beyond words. As a thank you to them and the many people who worked tirelessly on this release, we want to bring it back to the big screen where it belongs. And more than that, while fans eagerly await the release of “Terrifier 3” next year, we will be including some special surprises because a year is just too long to wait.”

“Terrifier 2’s return to theaters is the perfect farewell to the Halloween season, an event that will have audiences clinging onto their barf bags once again, “said Brad Miska, Managing Director of Cineverse/Bloody Disgusting. “This exemplifies the pinnacle of horror cinema, an experience that etches itself into memory.”

Set one year after its predecessor, “Terrifier 2” continued the gruesome story of Art the Clown and his insatiable thirst for murder. When a sinister force resurrects Art, his ominous presence returns once more upon the unsuspecting residents of Miles County. Back for another Halloween, Art sets his sights on a teenage girl and her little brother, portrayed by breakout star Lauren LaVera and Elliott Fullam, respectively, delivering a chilling and relentless tale of horror.

“Terrifier 2” was developed by Dark Age Cinema and Fuzz on the Lens Productions and features an original score by Paul Wiley. The film is produced by Phil Falcone, Steven Della Salla, Jason Leavy, and Michael Leavy. The list of executive producers includes Cairo Ben Amen II, Joshua Anderson, Steven Caruso, Lisa Falcone, Hank Greenberg, Marcus McGill, Larry Bilello, Steven Barton, and Thomas Smith.
