TERRIFIER is a US horror in which two young women encounter a murderous clown on Halloween.


A naked woman is hung upside down and sawn in half, starting with her groin, resulting in spurts of blood and strong gory wound detail. A man's neck is almost entirely severed with a knife and then pulled away from the body, resulting in sight of pouring blood and tearing bodily tissue. People are shot or stabbed, creating spurts of blood, and there is further blood spray when one woman gouges out another's eyes with her thumbs.

Injury detail

There are brief but graphic close-up images of extreme facial injuries. Another scene contains images of a woman who has been scalped and partially skinned. A man shoots himself in the head, causing a spray of blood.

There are scenes of strong, sustained threat throughout. There is also frequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), in addition to milder terms including 'bitch', 'retard', 'shit', 'tits', 'douchebag', 'son of a bitch' and 'piss'. Brief, infrequent sex references include crude references to masturbation. Other issues include infrequent images of smeared human excrement.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
