Hands down, the most violent and depraved horror movie of 2018 so far is Terrifier. The film from Dread Central Presents features Art the Clown (played by David Howard Thornton), the wrap-around character from the All Hallows’ Eve anthologies. Throughout the film, he commits many impossible-to-forget acts of cruelty, proving he’s a future horror heavyweight no one wants to fuck with!
But who exactly is Art the Clown? Where does he come from, and what are the extent of his abilities? Is he human or demon? Immortal or merely supernatural. We don’t have any idea, but Emma from Spooky Astronauts on YouTube has put some serious thought into the subject of Art the Clown.
From his first appearance in the short film The 9th Circle to clues culled from Terrifier, Emma delves deep, also including quotes from the film’s writer/director Damien Leone. At the end of the video, she asks for viewers to weigh in with their own opinions. So what are you waiting for?
