“TERRIFIER 2” Submitted for Oscar Consideration

Thursday, November 3, 2022 | News

The most vomit-inducing movie since The Exorcist with the most shocking effects since An American Werewolf in London is coming for the Academy Awards, as Terrifier 2 has been submitted for Oscar consideration by Bloody Disgusting.

The fan-driven campaign encourages supporters to tag @TheAcademy on Twitter with the hashtag #OscarsForArt.

“No, it will never actually happen. Yes, it’s a total goof,” admits Bloody Disgusting Managing Director Brad Miska. “But you know what? The thought of having members of the Academy endure an extreme unrated horror movie that they would otherwise consider beneath them? That’s just too hilarious of an opportunity to pass up.”

After earning nearly $8 million with an unprecedented theatrical run, the uncut indie slasher is streaming exclusively on Screambox. It will be available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD in December.

In the sequel to the 2016 cult classic slasher Terrifier, Art the Clown is resurrected by a sinister entity and targets a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night.

Terrifier’s Damien Leone writes and directs. David Howard Thornton reprises his iconic role as Art the Clown alongside Lauren LaVera, Elliott Fullam, Samantha Scaffidi, horror staple Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), and pro wrestling superstar Chris Jericho.

Terrifier 2 is part of Screambox’s growing library of unique horror content, including Pennywise: The Story of IT, Masters of Horror, 13 Nights of Elvira, Satan’s Little Helper, PussyCake, Toxic Crusaders, and the original Terrifier.
