The first teaser trailer has been released for Terrifier 3.
The first two movies in the franchise were unexpected hits, with Terrifier 2 earning $15 million at the box office on a budget of just $250k.
The villain of the series, Art the Clown, has become a horror culture phenomenon and is one of the most iconic horror creations of recent memory.
Damien Leone created the character, who will again be portrayed by David Howard Thornton in Terrifier 3.
The plot of the franchise surrounds Art the Clown terrorising young women - Victoria Heyes (Samantha Scaffidi) in the first movie and Sienna Shaw (Lauren LaVera in the second.
Terrifier 3 will be the first movie in the franchise to be set at Christmas, and it has already been confirmed that we're getting Terrifier 4 in 2025.
"It's tough, I don't want to give out spoilers, because I want people to just experience the movie as if it could be the last one going into 3," Leone told ScreenRant.
"You never know, you never know, but the whole thing was when I started writing Terrifier 2, the only good thing was is that I have known the ending to this franchise, so to speak, since I was writing 2, and that's the most important thing is knowing where the finish line is and how to have a satisfying conclusion, which is something a lot of these franchises do not have whatsoever as they go on way too long. Then they wind up just petering out, because there's no goal, it just comes down to money, and just bringing the killer back to wipe out a whole new slew of people, which is fantastic, it could be, I mean, I grew up with the part 10s and whatnot, I love them, I still watch them.
"But as a storyteller, as a filmmaker, you want to create a satisfying franchise, a satisfying conclusion where you could just watch it from start to finish and understand the journey and the arcs of your characters and say, 'Wow, that was a satisfying experience'. I know what it is, and there isn't like five timelines and say, 'Well, which one do I like', and this and that.
"So I mean, that's the goal, and I'm saying that now as like a naive artist, but you never know what's going to happen down the line, but that is the goal is I don't want to make too many of these, and I want it to have a satisfying conclusion."
