A new horror film is causing viewers to faint in theatres due to its extreme violence.
Terrifier 2, which is the sequel to 2016’s controversial Terrifier, follows a deranged killer clown as he butchers and maims unsuspecting victims on Halloween.
The film opened in theatres across the United States last week, and viewers have reportedly fainted and even vomited at screenings due to its ‘brutal depictions of horror’.

As a result, Terrifier 2’s production company has issued a stark warning on social media to ensure that viewers are fully prepared before seeing it.
‘This movie contains scenes of graphic violence and brutal depictions of horror,’ reads the statement.
‘Viewers who are faint of heart, prone to light-headedness or have weak stomachs are advised to take extreme caution.
‘There have already been numerous instances of fainting and vomiting in theatres. For those choosing to continue, you’ve been warned.’

Despite the sickening violence, the indie slasher is shaping up to be a box office hit.
It has already raked in $1.2million in its first week of release, which is impressive given the film’s paltry $250,000 budget.
It was enough to break the top ten at the weekend box office, and the limited theatrical run has now been extended following sold-out screenings.
Horror fans have taken to social media to gush about Terrifier 2’s blood and gore, with one writing: ‘One of the goriest movies I’ve ever seen. Y’all were not playing!’

‘A dude actually vomited at my screening, after the movie I noticed he didn’t make it to the bathroom… all over the floor,’ wrote another.
‘Loved it! So many people walked out, I don’t think they knew what they were getting into,’ added one.
The first Terrifier follows a maniacal mime artist named Art the Clown who terrorises three women on Halloween.

The movie went viral after its release due to one particularly horrifying death scene, which involved somebody being sawn in half in a brutal fashion.
In the sequel, he returns after being resurrected by a sinister supernatural entity to wreak more havoc, this time targeting a teenage girl and her younger brother.
Both movies are currently unavailable to stream in Australia.
It’s unclear if they’ve been banned, or if the film’s low budget has caused distribution issues internationally.
