Independent horror director Damien Leone has been talking to Insider about his once cult but now smash hit horror franchise ‘Terrifier’.
Leone spoke about the clear subtext of the second film and where it could all lead.
I mean, there’s blatant religious mythic imagery, clear as day. There is a heaven and hell thing going on. And the clown is this resurrected demon and Sienna is slowly becoming aware that she’s sort of this Old Testament angel ready to do battle and going through that metamorphosis. That discovery was really what was the most exciting thing to me in this movie.Damien Leone/Insider
He also offered an update on the third film and teased of more to come beyond that.
I am writing ‘Terrifier 3’ as we speak. I definitely want to make at least one more. There may be two to tell this story and tackle all the ideas that I have in my head. Because there’s a lot more to explore with Art the Clown, the pale girl, Victoria, and certainly Sienna as our final girl. We will be following her journey to the end of this franchise.Damien Leone/Insider
As a result of the success of ‘Terrifier 2’ Leone is currently working with Ghost House Pictures, Sam Raimi’s production company, on developing a secret new project.
