Terrifier 3 Unleashes Art the Clown’s Chaos Earlier This Halloween Season

Horror fans eagerly awaiting the return of Art the Clown are in for an early treat this year. As first reported by Variety, the release date for the highly anticipated Terrifier 3 has been shifted forward by two weeks to hit theaters on October 11th, just in time for the spooky Halloween season.

The third installment of the cult horror franchise was initially slated for an October 25th debut. However, distributor Cineverse made the strategic move to unleash Art’s latest blood-soaked rampage a couple of weeks earlier, capitalizing on the prime fall horror movie-going period.

“We’re so excited to bring the next Terrifier to theaters this fall just in time for the Halloween season,” stated franchise producer Phil Falcone. “Terrifier 3 will deliver everything the fans expect and more with Art the Clown taking things to the next level. We can’t thank our fans enough for their support and for making us believe we’ve made something truly special.”

While the film itself takes place over a Christmas Eve setting, with the murderous Art the Clown (David Howard Thornton) bringing his brand of chaos to the unsuspecting town of Miles County, the earlier October 11th release allows fans to get their fix of seasonal slasher thrills before families gather for the actual holidays.

Returning cast members include Lauren LaVera as Sienna, Samantha Scaffidi as Victoria Heyes, Elliot Fullam as Jonathan Shaw, and AEW wrestler Chris Jericho reprising his role from his mid-credits cameo in Terrifier 2. Adding an extra twist of holiday horror, actor Daniel Roebuck will make his debut as an unlucky Santa Claus.

“I knew the second I saw Terrifier 2 that it would be a generational horror film and was ecstatic when horror fans showed up to experience the movie in theaters making it one of the biggest indie horror successes of all time,” added Brad Miska, VP of Bloody Disgusting for Cineverse. “With Terrifier 3, Damien Leone and Phil Falcone have handcrafted a theatrical experience like no other that will shock the hell out of audiences this fall. Art the Clown will slay October once again.”

Brace yourselves, because Art the Clown is coming two weeks sooner than expected to rip apart your holidays with a diabolical grin. Forget about snowflakes – this Christmas, it’s going to be a gory red rampage on the streets of Miles County.
