Clown-sploitation at its finest! (by CohenForthright)
TERRIFIER is a merciless, unforgiving, and filthy example of a perfect clown-sploitation movie.From beginning to end your attention will be rapt by the mesmerizing tension that borders on camp and absurd. For the most part, Art the Clown is a breath of fresh air in a genre that is rife with lack of originality and iconocism. Art is a new breed of slasher -- one that movie goers will quickly fall in love with like they have Freddy Krueger or Jason Voorhees. I dare say that Art the Clown is the new face of horror!The effects and the kills in this movie are brutal, disgusting, and soothe the <more>
appetite of horror fans who can't get enough blood. Art the Clown proves just how menacing and evil he truly is."Terrifier" is a movie for the horror fan who loves or hates clowns, and should be approached as a film and story that will entertain as well as disgust. With a hint of grindhouse, "Terrifier" will immediately become a part of any horror fan's Top 10 list of all time favorite cult films. This movie commands a fandom unlike any we've seen in decades!
I was introduced to Art The Clown in All Hallows' Eve where we saw some of his character development but not all. The aesthetic of Art in AHE made me wanting more which is why I enjoyed this movie so much and boy oh boy did we get more!!For those of you NOT into gore, guts, and nudity-this movie isn't for you. But for my fellow horror fans that grew up on 80s horror flick gore, you better add this to your watch list!!! It is FULL OF IT!From watching horrible I emphasize horrible haha deaths to TERRIFYING Art The Clown encounters, this movie did hit home for me. There was not a <more>
moment I was bored...seriously. From the art direction to the costumes, I give it 10 stars.We experience more of the iconic underground character and the team behind this movie have made it clear how scary Art actually is.I highly recommend this to any horror slasher gore lover. Don't say I didn't warn you-Art's diner scene is quite memorable and stays with you, at least it has stayed with me!Bravo work here.-DisneyMonster Rylan
This is a Gory, fun, Slasher throwback at its best! The minute I finished it, I ordered the Blu-ray! It's a must have. I really liked Art the Clown in All Hallows Eve, but this one amps it up in quality, acting, and gore. Visually awesome and such and 80s slasher feel! I was so pleasantly surprised! I expected to like it, but I loved it! Jenna Kanell is absolutely gorgeous, and I hope that Damien Leone directs so many more films! He's got a huge future in Horror!I'd say it's Not for the squeamish, but why would the squeamish be here anyhow? The gore and the atmosphere are <more>
Has its flaws but still one of the creepiest killer clown movies out there (by papadeltazulu)
This obviously low budget killer clown flick had me in two minds. Finding out it was a re-imagining of the horror short or the same name, that eventually found its way into the horror anthology film "All hallows eve" kind of put me off. I saw that film a while ago and although Art the clown was a terrifying clown to look at, the film itself did nothing for me. Then after reading all the reviews on here, most of them completely glowing I was even more sceptical. Most low budget films on here are riddled with 10 star reviews from the crew and cast members so it's hard to trust <more>
reviews from people who have written ONE glowing review on a new movie.However, this film deserves all the plaudits it is getting if you are looking for a gruesome, un-nerving and downright bonkers horror film. Makes Pennywise look like Krusty was one of the comments I read, yeah right, then I watched it and was like, ok, so it actually makes Pennywise look like one of the Grumbleweeds, nevermind Krusty.Art the clown is freakin terrifying in this, I don't know who the guy playing him is, I've never heard of him before but he deserves so much credit for bringing this evil beast to life. He is so creepy and brutal, it's difficult to watch at times and the death scenes in this film make Saw and Hostel look tame.Yes it's not perfect by any means, the acting from some of the side characters could have been better the main cast are fine and one of the female victims in the second half of the film does some really stupid things that got on my nerves a bit and it is one of those films where this always annoys me with horror movies several victims have the villain at their mercy, lying on the ground while they are standing up holding a weapon, and what do they do? They run away and leave the villain to get back up again, really? You've just seen this clown brutally murder your friend and has attempted to murder you, you have him lying on the ground, completely at your mercy and what do you do? Finish him off and then make your escape? Nope, you leave him breathing, discard your weapon and run away, it's cliché and tired.However, people who watch films like this generally come for the atmosphere, the scares and the gore and in that department, Terrifier delivers in spades. everything reeks of the 80's despite it being set in modern times from the way its filmed, the music, the camera work etc but it really does have to be one of the most brutal, unforgiving and absolutely relentless horror films I've ever watched.Art the clown is great and is easily one of the most memorable movie monsters I've seen, despite the fact he never speaks or makes a noise, his screen presence is immense. There is no CGI in this film and all the special effects are done practical and they look great, it shy's away from nothing and the effects look as realistic as they could have done. The effects team put a lot of effort in here.If you're one of those people who watch movies and pick holes in them, then you might not enjoy this as there are holes to pick at and if you don't enjoy torture porn like Saw and Hostel, again, avoid, but if like me, you like good slasher films, brutality in all its glory and a film that makes you squirm in your seat, then chances are, you're gonna love this.Low budget, lovingly made for its target audience, brutal, creepy and an absolute blast of a horror film.8/12 10
Probably the best clown slasher, ever... (by mark-179-360743)
It really is better than any other clown movie. I hate clown movies, not because they''re scary, but because they're crap. This isn't. From the opening 30 seconds, you know you are in for something special and genuinely creative. All the actors are solid, the script is actually reasonable, the stock used is the same like in the Aviator, and it really works with non-stop hyper-realistic blood and gore, the clown is actually scary and a strangely interesting character despite being mute, the deaths are creative and "Uggh" initiating throughout, the score is suitably <more>
atmospheric, lighting and direction are perfect and the pace is high throughout the movie. I don't know what else you want me to say - it really is one of the best slasher movies ever, best clown movies ever and best horror flicks for a ****ing age - there are literally no bits where anything has been skimped on. I don't have anything to do with the production, I know I seem to be brown nosing a lot - but anyone with a slight inclination towards horror in general has to be impressed. This is not hyperbole. Its just a - quite literally - bloody good movie!
I don't know why this movie is getting so much hate. This little piece of horror heaven is extremely well executed. Basic slasher concept...but you can tell there is so much more going on. They broke a mold with this one. Fantastic Gore, great villain, relatively smart and likable victims. I will probably watch it again before or on Halloween.
Loved it! (by guambrat1)
This movie was insane. I am a horror lover and I don't see a lot of horror movies that actually deserve to be called a horror movie. This one does. It definitely has some of a B movie vibe, but not at all in a bad way. I actually enjoyed that aspect because it felt like it added to the film. This movie is definitely twisted and graphic, but it delivers.
Campy 80's horror has returned! (by skorpeo72)
It was terrible in the 80's and it's terrible now .. but isn't that the attraction? A weak plot and lots of blood and gore, A chase where the running victim constantly falls down, an opportunity missed to finish off what should be the upper hand. Yes it's all there and all in good fun. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the early Friday the 13th movies and their B movie counterparts. If you are looking for intellectual stimulation this is not for you!
IMDB ratings are a joke... (by MVProtus)
Why can't people be realistic when voting for a movie? 1 star? really? - I cant think of any budget movie that outranks this one. Not only that, this movie is better than 80% of others horror movies which didn't have an unlimited budget.That being said, the movie is great. A few things could have been a little better, but overall really well done. Congratulations to Damien Leone and David Thornton
