It's the night before Halloween, and little Jonathan (Elliott Fullam) is so obsessed with serialkiller Art the Clown (David Howard Thornton - from the original Terrifier) that he wants to dress up this Halloween as him - which both his mum (Sarah Voigt) and bigger sister Sienna (Lauren LaVera) think is a terrible idea. Thing is, Sienna sees Art in a nightmare, a nightmare she wakes up from to find her room burning. The fire doesn't cause any major damage other than destroying part of her Halloween costume, and is quickly extinguished, but from here on mum is totally strung out and lets out her frustrations on her children. But the children aren't doing too well as well, as both stumble upon Art the Clown the following day, even though he's supposed to be dead - of course, the audience knows by now he has come back to life causing a blood bath in the mortuary. Still, in both cases Art treats the kids with respect, even if on other occasions he knows no restraints when it comes to ultra-violence.

It's Halloween night and Sienna goes out wearing a somewhat revealing fantasy costume with angel wings, parties and gets a little bit drunk - and that her friend Brooke (Kailey Hyman) has slipped a party drug into her drink doesn't make things any better. Meanwhile Jonathan runs away after a row with his mum, and when he comes back he finds mum having been murdered by the killer clown who promptly takes him hostage - to ultimately lure Sienna, whose fate is somehow linked to Art, to an abandoned amusement park, to brutally slaughter her. Now she puts up a fierce fight, to not only save herself but also her little brother, but then again she's just a teenage girl and he's a super-strong and ruthless full-grown man fighting on his own turf - so it needs more than just brawn to defeat him ...

Horror fan faves Felissa Rose and Tamara Glynn make cameo appearances as teacher and shopping mother, respectively.

 

Now I freely admit I haven't seen the original Terrifier yet, so I have no idea how this film compares to the earlier one or whether it's a worthy continuation or just re-hash - but taken by its own terms, Terrifier 2 has plenty going for it: For one, it's extremely explicit and gory in its depiction of violence in a day and age where most of mainstream and indie horror has restrained itself again after the blood-soaked last two decades of the previous century. And sure, it's a slasher movie and formulaic to a fault, with a very easy to pick final girl, but it nevertheless spends its dear time on character development and even - and that's unusual for a slasher - mythology building. And even if it's a bit hazy on that and drifts off a tad into fantasy territory, it's fun to see the film grow its own mythology - plus it goes well with the fantasy costume Lauren LaVera wears for the finale. And speaking of Lauren Lavera, it's really her that makes the movie with a strong yet restrained performance that keeps the film grounded rather beautifully. It has to be said here though, due to its violent excesses, this is not a film for everyone, but the dedicated horror fan is almost sure to enjoy Terrifier 2.
