PUFF 2017: Evil Clown Named Art Makes Pennywise Look Like Krusty in Aptly Named TERRIFIER

Terrfier is the festival’s second movie of opening night at the festival. It starts at 9:30. Get tickets to the film or a full pass at FilmFreeway!


Tonight’s opening film, Imitation Girl, is a meditative and beautiful science fiction tome. After a brief reprise and ceremony, the night will continue with something just a bit different. That something is the aptly named Terrfier, a brutal stalker/slasher with one of the most terrifying clowns ever put to screen. So, let’s start with that clown… meet Art!

Art made his first appearance in director Damien Leone’s 2013 anthology All Hallows’ Eve. The killer clown graced much of marketing material for the film… and for good reason. He’s a scary looking clown, for sure. But, his appearance is nothing compared to his actions. Dude is FUCKED UP! His sadism knows no bounds. He seems to take true joy in stalking and slaughtering his prey, which he shows throw his actions only… as he’s wholly mute, not even making a sound.

Terrifier is extremely effective and, thus, quite horrifying. It’s gory and bloody. And, above all, it’s virtually spoiler proof. The plot can be summarized as “killer clown stalks beautiful girls in empty warehouse” and, yet, without watching the film, you can’t know just how powerful and brutal a film it is. In short, you really have to see Art’s brutality on screen in order to understand just how powerful it is.

My favorite scene includes Art wearing some body parts that aren’t his own while dancing around gleefully. It’s a fun scene in a fun movie, as long as you can have fun while watching a decapitation or two and many other equally sadistic acts of violence. So, tonight, head to Philly and enjoy yourself in that laughing-awkwardly-so-you-don’t-cower-in-fear kind of way. And, if you don’t show up tonight, just know… Art is out there motherfuckers! No one is safe!

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here, a bit less regularly at Cinapse, on occasion at Cinepunx, and a few times a year on Rock On Philly. He previously wrote for several other sites, but he forgets some of them and others no longer exist. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy. He also likes to ramble... on... and... on... and...
