Terrifier 2 takes a more supernatural route than the first film, with the sequel delving into Art the Clown’s potential immortality and other powers.
terrier 2’s more supernatural approach has questioned Art the Clown’s immortality – so can the character die? The post-credit scene for terrier 2 shows art being born again after seemingly dying at the end of the film. The original also initially made the public believe that art was human, but the end of the first Terrier rumble of the character’s supernatural nature. While Art’s potential immortality and supernatural abilities have not yet been fully explored in Terrier movies so far, it’s clear that the killer clown is operating outside of normal slasher parameters.
Art the Clown is not immortal in the sense that it cannot die. Although he is hard to kill, Art is effectively killed in both Terrier movies. However, it appears that the eerily silent Art the Clown has an ability similar to: The Umbrella Academy‘s Klaus, where he can resurrect himself by unknown means. Art may not even be aware of the full extent of his abilities, as director Damien Leone stated that Art was unaware that he would be revived after shooting himself in the head at the end of the first film.
Why art keeps coming back to life
Art the Clown’s appearances before Terrier hint that he may be demonic in origin, which explains his constant resurrection and apparent immortality. In his first appearance, in the short film The 9th circleArt kidnaps a young woman and brings her to be sacrificed by a satanic cult. He repeats this action in part of the anthology movie All Saints Eve, showing that he has some connection to demonic powers. His accomplice, terrier 2‘s The Pale Little Girl, is at least partly responsible for his resurrections and serves as a diabolical guide to art.
What other powers does Art The Clown have?
Art the Clown has a significant pain threshold, but also seems to have a bit of a healing factor. Despite shooting himself in the head in the first Terrier, those wounds are not present in the sequel. Art also has some interdimensional travel skills, as he is able to get through a television set in All Saints Eve. A certain level of super strength is also shown during Art the Clown’s movie appearances, as he is able to tear off limbs and carry his bag of endless tools with relative ease.
Finally, like most slasher villains, in terrier 2Art seems to be able to teleport and travel great distances in a short amount of time. That could be all his powers, but with plans for… terrier 3 in the works, it is likely that the origins of Art the Clown and the full extent of his abilities will be further explored.
