The cast of ‘Terrifier 2’ joins the celebrity guest lineup at Creep I.E.

Things are getting a lot more terrifying at Creep I.E. Con in Ontario thanks to the addition of a killer clown to its already star-studded guest lineup.

Officials announced that for its second annual horror convention, the cast of the “Terrifier” films, including actor David Howard Thornton who portrays Art the Clown in the movies, will be in attendance as the event returns to the Ontario Convention Center Feb. 4-5.

Thornton will be there in his full killer clown makeup and outfit for part of the weekend, hanging out with those brave enough to face his sadistic smile and trash bag full of rusty weapons up close.

“This is huge,” said Brian Boget, co-producer of the all-ages event. “And what’s really cool is that on Saturday people will be able to take a picture with the real Art the Clown.”

After being released in 2016, the original, low-budget “Terrifier” film managed to garner a cult following with its sinister villain, throwback practical effects and controversial killing scenes. It became so popular that a sequel, “Terrifier 2,” was released Oct. 6, 2022 and grossed over $12 million at the box office.

Besides Thornton, Damien Leone, the director, producer and writer of the films will also be on hand at Creep I.E. along with “Terrifier 2” cast members Lauren LaVera, Elliott Fullam, Leah Voysey and Felissa Rose. The cast and director will be signing autographs throughout the weekend.

Also recently announced as weekend guests are Richard Brake and Matthew Patrick Davis from 2022’s hit horror film “Barbarian.”

“In my opinion, the two top horror films of 2022 were ‘Terrifier 2’ and ‘Barbarian,’ and we’re pretty excited to have the cast from (those) two top horror films,” Boget said.

Previously announced actors scheduled to attend the convention include Skeet Ulrich and Jamie Kennedy, who starred together in Wes Craven’s 1996 slasher, “Scream”; Ryan Hurst and Tom Payne from “The Walking Dead”; Bill Mosley and Walter Phelan of “House of 1000 Corpses”; Devon Sawa of “Final Destination” and “Hunter Hunter,” and more.

The convention will also feature a walk-thru haunt produced by Fear Farm, a horror prop museum, arcade games, tattoo artists designing horror-themed body art and hundreds of vendors selling all types of spooky wares.

Tickets are $25-$30 for single-day general admission passes; $50 for general admission weekend passes; $110 for VIP weekend passes, which include one hour early entry to the vendor hall and VIP lounge, as well as front-of-line access to autograph sessions. All passes are currently on sale at creepiecon.com.
