Initially delayed due to the Corona Virus pandemic, the film was to release late this month. However, director Damien Leone took to the Terrifier 2 Official Facebook Page yesterday to announce the sequel would not be releasing this month.
"Our initial goal was to have it out this month but like every other production, Covid set us back big time. We are finally heading into our final stretch of filming currently and our new goal is to have the film completed by early 2021. However, that does not mean we will have distribution secured. That will be the next step upon completion. As you know, Terrifier 2 is a completely independent film funded through Indiegogo and a handful of private investors. We did not have a studio or distribution company backing us so this is truly a grassroots campaign on every level. Believe me, we are as anxious and excited to release this film as you are to see it but the last thing we want to do is rush it. The cast and crew have truly put an unfathomable amount of time and energy into this film and we're trying to exceed expectations on every level. All I can say is, it will be worth the wait. Thanks so much for understanding and for your patience! The next big update will be when we wrap principle photography. Again, we will keep you posted every step of the way."
So there you have it unfortunately folks. Looks like we'll have to wait a little while longer to see Art the Clown return to the big screen. The director also took the time to address a lot of fake accounts spreading bogus information regarding the film.
"Another thing I want to mention is: there are A TON of fake Terrifier 1 & 2 twitter, facebook and instagram accounts spreading all sorts of false information. The ONLY 2 OFFICIAL TERRIFIER ACCOUNTS right now are this Facebook page: Terrifier 2 and Terrifier 2 Official (@terrifier2_official) on Instagram. Unless you see information posted on either one of these accounts, then it is not legitimate information."
