Terrifier 2 video game could be coming soon, according to the director | Pretty Reel

Terrifier 2 director Damien Leone is aiming for a video game adaptation, which could bring some quiet scares to the asymmetrical survival genre.

Damien Leone, the director of the recently released slasher film Terrifier 2, has expressed interest in a video game based on the macabre horror film. The film follows Art the Clown, a demonic entity that appears on Halloween night to wreak bloody havoc on a town and its people. Terrifier 2 has proven divisive thanks to its incredibly graphical attacks, and the gruesome experience may soon get a terrifying interactive adaptation.

During a recent interview with GamingBible, director Damien Leone expressed his excitement for a Terrifier 2 video game in the style of the Friday the 13th game released in 2017. Leone explains that he has already been contacted by a video game company interested in adapting the horrifying film, and he’s apparently very invested in the idea. Leone imagines an asymmetrical horror game in the style of Friday the 13th: The Game, with players controlling Art the Clown or a terrified survivor trying to escape his clutches. Terrifier 2 only premiered recently, likely making an adaptation years at the earliest, but the film’s popularity could make for a very successful video game project.

A Terrifier 2 game can create silent asymmetrical horror

While Friday the 13th: The Game was a popular slasher experience, the current trend of asymmetrical multiplayer horror games really kicked off with 2016’s Dead by Daylight. This title puts four players in the role of survivors, who must fix generators scattered around the map to lift doors and escape the area. During this time, a player assumes the role of a supernatural killer who hunts, kills, and sacrifices survivors to a dark entity. While Dead by Daylight launched with a roster of original killers and survivors, over time that lineup has been expanded with iconic slasher villains like Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, and Pinhead. The continued success of Dead by Daylight has inspired other asymmetrical horror games like Friday the 13th: The Game, the upcoming game Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and a potential adaptation of Terrifier 2.

A full-fledged Terrifier 2 game could put Art the Clown in the spotlight, but a simple Dead by Daylight crossover would also allow players to play as the supernatural harlequin. The art would be a unique addition to the asymmetrical multiplayer game, given its theatrics and absolute silence on every kill. The murderous mime’s special abilities could make him an engaging killer to play or face, with his stealthy silence and apparent immortality playing a key part in his kit. A Terrifier 2 DLC for Dead by Daylight could also add the film’s protagonist Sienna Shaw, played by Lauren LaVera, as a new survivor.

Terrifier 2 has found great success as a modern slasher film, and director Damien Leone seems very eager to see Art the Clown enter the world of video games. An interactive film adaptation could put a new spin on the asymmetric horror genre, allowing players to play as Art or escape the murderous mime. A crossover with Dead by Daylight could also bring Art the Clown into the gaming world, but Damien Leone seems determined to make a full-fledged Terrifier 2 video game.
