Fans of Terrifier can expect the third film in the series to continue featuring supernatural elements, despite being more grounded compared to its predecessor. Terrifier 2 introduced new mythology and increased levels of blood and gore, which resulted in an impressive domestic box office revenue of over $11 million and a favorable Rotten Tomatoes rating. The third installment aims to build upon this success.
In a recent interview with Screen Rant, director Damien Leone shared that Terrifier 3 would have “plenty of supernatural things,” but they will be presented in a way that is not overly obvious. The focus will be on Art the Clown’s journey and how he escapes challenging situations, with special attention given to Victoria’s role in aiding him. Leone explained, “There’s an artistic way to approach it where it’s just not so in your face.”
Beyond maintaining the familiar elements of the franchise, Leone also plans to introduce fresh ideas and take bold storytelling risks in about 30% of Terrifier 3. He believes there is no point in recycling the same movie over and over again, and he is excited to see how the audience will react to these new elements. Terrifier 3 is set to hit theaters on October 25, 2024, providing fans with a perfect blend of familiarity and innovation in the beloved franchise.
