A low-budget sequel film in the "Terrifier" film series is causing visceral reactions from moviegoers – with many viewers sharing they puked or passed out due to the goriness of the movie.

"Terrifier 2," a horror film written and directed by Damien Leone, follows a resurrected Art the Clown that is looking to terrorize a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night.

Upon its release in select theaters, fans immediately started tweeting their reactions to the slasher movie.

The extreme reactions sparked the director, Leone, to reportedly tweet out to fans, "To everyone saying that reports of people fainting and puking during screenings of Terrifier 2 is a marketing ploy, I swear on the success of the film it is NOT. These reports are 100% legit. I wish we were smart enough to think of that…But then again we didn’t need to."

Leone is also credited as doing special effects makeup for the movie.

Producer Steve Barton issued an ominous warning to viewers, sharing a warning statement, but not before saying, "We aren't done yet."

While many had what would be considered a less than positive reaction, many fans on Twitter shared their excitement at the possibility of being so tormented by a movie.

One person tweeted, "terrifier 2 better make me puke," while another simply wrote, "I'm (sic) going to see terrifier 2 if I don’t cry and puke I want my money back."
