Terrifier 2: Art the Clown actor was inspired by comedies

In an interview with Alabama.com, David Howard Thornton stated that he used elements of classic comedy films to build the mannerisms, habits and customs of Art the Clown. He especially paid attention to characters who needed to communicate emotions without being able to say anything.

“I drew inspiration from a lot of horror villains and serial killers, of course, but I also took a lot from the iconic comedies. Chaplin, Rowan Atkinson (from Mr. bean) and Doug Jones were some of my biggest inspirations, as was the movie The Grinch. All these characters and actors were funny and had characteristic expressions, being able to communicate without even speaking a word,” he explained.
