It’s been revealed that Terrifier 3 is currently in the works, with the first two movies’ director and writer returning to helm the project! Terrifier 2 ended up being one of the biggest cinematic successes of last year.
The film ended up making a lot of money, considering how small its budget was. The movie ended up making over $14 million at the worldwide box office.
That might not seem like a lot of money for movies nowadays, but in actual fact, it’s a huge return given that the movie was only made for $250K. You don’t see movies get made on such small budgets these days!
Terrifier 3 is in the works with Damien Leone returning
We covered Terrifier 2 pretty extensively last year, and we also reported on Leone talking about what could happen in a third movie. It seems as though he’s made enough money with the second film to warrant a third.
Franchise writer/director Damien Leone told Insider that he’s writing the third movie as we speak. He also went on to reveal that he wants to make “at least one more” Terrifier — meaning there could be even more Terrifiers after that.
Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
There may be two [sequels] to tell this story and tackle all the ideas that I have in my head.
While there are certain financial incentives to returning to the Terrifier saga for Leone, he also noted there are more ideas he wants to tackle, saying:
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.
What could we see from a Terrifier 3?

This isn’t the only time that Leone has talked about the third Terrifier movie. Here’s what he had to say on the matter during an interview with Variety:
I had a Part 3 in mind when writing Part 2. There are so many questions brought up in Part 2 that are not answered, and that was part of the design because I know I’m going into a ‘Part 3.’ I pretty much have the entire treatment ready for Part 3, but it’s getting so big that it could potentially split into a Part 4 because I wouldn’t want to make another 2 hour 20 minute movie. So we’ll see.
