‘Terrifier 2’ – Get Your Tickets Now for “Wicked Weekend” Screening from Popcorn Frights on September 30!

Art the Clown is back in Damien Leone‘s Terrifier 2, with Bloody Disgusting and Cinedigm releasing the hotly anticipated sequel in theaters nationwide on October 6. Ahead of the wide release, Terrifier 2 is first bringing Art the Clown to Florida as part of the “Wicked Weekend” program from Popcorn Frights, and tickets for the special screening are available now.

Just in time for the spooky season, Popcorn Frights has announced its annual Wicked Weekend program celebrating all the eerie, weird, wild, and strange things that go bump in the night! The event, running September 28 through October 2 at Savor Cinema Fort Lauderdale, will feature nine film events plus a host of filmmakers, restorations, and special screenings.

Everything kicks off with the opening night debut of SMILE, the disturbing new horror from Paramount Pictures starring Sosie Bacon (13 Reasons Why) as a doctor whose life unravels as increasingly bizarre forces drag her to the edge of sanity.

Wicked Weekend is also headlined by the North American Premiere of the fun and fantastically splatter-packed love letter to horror anthologies SCARE PACKAGE II: RAD CHAD’S REVENGE, as well as the hotly anticipated sequel to the cult-favorite slasher TERRIFIER 2 featuring the demonic killer Art the Clown who is up to his old tricks once again.

Popcorn Frights previews, “TERRIFIER 2 is finally here celebrating its Florida Premiere at Popcorn Frights’ Wicked Weekend and it’s a sprawling follow-up that horror fans quite simply aren’t ready for! Art the Clown is more brutal than ever with this new chapter producing some of the most jaw-dropping, stomach-churning, Savini-esque deaths in modern memory.

“The highly anticipated sequel to the cult-favorite slasher film welcomes back David Howard Thornton as the demonic killer, Art the Clown, who is up to his old tricks once again. Following his gruesome demise in the first film, a sinister presence has brought Art back to life to reign terror on the residents of Miles County. On Halloween night, he returns to the unassuming town and sets his sights on fresh prey: a teenage girl and her little brother. Skirting the boundaries of good taste, TERRIFIER 2 is an over-the-top throwback that is both nostalgic and modern, recalling everything from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET to HIGH TENSION, and is an absolute must-see for slasher fans not afraid of a little (or a lot of) overkill!”

Terrifier 2 will be playing at 10:00pm EST on Friday, September 30th. Grab your tickets now to see Terrifier 2 at Popcorn Frights’ Wicked Weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Florida!

Other highlights include the 35th anniversary of Kathryn Bigelow’s ultra-violent triumph NEAR DARK starring the late-great Bill Paxton and the 25th anniversary of the Kevin Williamson penned (Scream) 90s slasher I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze Jr.

This year’s Wicked Weekend will also feature one hell of a family reunion with a special double-bill presentation of HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS and HALLOWEEN 5: THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS, which will include a Michael Myers & Jamie Lloyd costume contest with special prizes and giveaways.

Rounding out the program is the Florida Premiere of SPIRIT HALLOWEEN starring Christopher Lloyd & Rachel Leigh Cook in a Nickelodeon meets The Goonies diabolical coming-of-age thriller, as well as a celebration of Alex Proyas’ gloriously gothic and brutal revenge tale THE CROW starring Brandon Lee as a badass antihero in his final electric performance.

Celebrated as one of “The World’s 50 Best Genre Festivals” by MovieMaker Magazine, Popcorn Frights recently wrapped its eighth edition this past August with more than 10,000 filmgoers and industry professionals attending its summer week of wicked films, events, and parties. The ninth annual Popcorn Frights Film Festival takes place August 10-20, 2023.
