Terrifier 2 director responds to claims that viewers are passing out watching the movie
| Last updated
The director of Terrifier 2 has responded to reports of viewers passing out while watching the movie. Check out the trailer here:
The slasher movie runs for more than two hours and tells the story of Art the Clown as he haunts a teenage girl and her brother on Halloween night.
There have been reports of people passing out, puking and otherwise embarrassing themselves in cinemas watching the latest outing of the killer clown.
Of course, if you were reading reviews for a restaurant and everyone who went said they puked and s**t themselves you'd probably give it a miss - but as far as horror reviews go, the above really are glowing endorsements.
So how does writer-director Damien Leone feel about it all?
He told Entertainment Weekly: "Listen, I would have loved to have a couple of walk-outs, I think that's sort of a badge of honour because it is an intense movie."
"I don't want people fainting, getting hurt during the movie. But it's surreal."
He went on to make the very valid point that the clue is in the name - and people should do their homework before diving straight in.
Leone continued: "Here's the thing, it's called Terrifier 2, you should probably see Terrifier 1 before you jump into this one. If you see Terrifier 1, you'd know what you're getting into.
"There is a now-notorious murder scene, a hacksaw scene, in Part I that everyone walks away talking about. We tried to rival that scene [in the new film] because the really supportive fan base that we've had this entire time, that has really started to put Art on a pedestal, I mean, those are the things that they really want.
"I think this movie is more accessible, but we're essentially still making these movies for them, and if other people want to come on board, the more the merrier."
If you're unsure about whether you're cut out for it, make sure you've listened to what Leone has had to say, take in the following reviews from social media, and then make your mind up.
One viewer wrote: "If you miss the good ole days of lean-and-mean horror, Terrifier 2 may just be the tonic you seek. Seriously, this thang is more violent and depraved than anything in recent years I can recall."
Another said: "Terrifier 2 was an amazing gory mess. The guy behind me passed out cold and crashed into my chair, another guy left because he didn’t feel good, I overheard him say, and walking out the theatre door I heard a guy puking hard and loud in the bathroom."
A third added: "Holy s***! #Terrifier2 was fantastic! Definitely not for the weak stomachs! Someone actually fainted during my screening of this movie."
What do you reckon then, sound like a bit of you?
