Earlier this month, Damien Leone's modern horror classic Terrifier 2 headed back to theaters with an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming festive frightener Terrifier 3 - and that sneak peek is now available to watch online thanks to our friends over at Bloody Disgusting and Cineverse.

Terrifier 3 sees the return of FANGORIA Chainsaw Award-winning final girl Lauren LaVera as Sienna, as well as Elliott Fullam and David Howard Thornton reprising their roles from prior films. The fourth entry into the franchise will also see the return of Samantha Scaffidi as Victoria Heyes, the heroine turned villainess of Terrifier.

In the third installment of Damien Leone’s breakout horror film, Art the Clown is set to unleash chaos on the unsuspecting residents of Miles County as they peacefully drift off to sleep on Christmas Eve. 

Terrifier 2 raked in a jaw-dropping $15M off the back of its $250,000 budget last year, which means that Terrifier 3 is guaranteed to be bigger and bloodier than ever. Leone had this to say about the upcoming sequel:

We’re going to have a bigger budget. We’re shooting in anamorphic widescreen, so I want it to feel more like an old-school John Carpenter movie. It’s going to still have that epic feel of part two, but now have the tone of part one with Christmas. It’s going to be a completely different beast. It’s going to look different. It’s going to feel different, but it’s still going to have everything you love in it. But it’s going to be very fresh. It’s not going to be like you’re sitting through part one or two all over again.”

The footage has already been the source of some controversy both on and offline, and this teaser clip just proves that nobody - not even children - are safe in the world of Terrifier.

Terrifier 3 slashes into theaters from October 25, 2024 - plenty of time to get yourself into the seasonal spirit to see Art do what he does best:
