There’s certainly no denying that nudity is a common theme in the realm of cinematic horror, although Terrifier 2 star Laura LaVera is clapping back against a group of naysayers who are adamant that the film needed more nude scenes. In her thought-provoking response, LaVera insisted that men needing to witness women getting brutalized while naked is insanely harmful. LaVera’s standpoint is undoubtedly a stance that can be related with, seeing as horror movies are worth more artist value than just naked women on display. Kudos to the actress for speaking out and using her platform to support and defend women.

Upon the release of Terrifier 2, moviegoers were passing out, vomiting, and shielding their eyes at the violent behavior and events that happened during the film. In the weeks following, fans were adamant that Art the Clown was a terrifying villain (no pun intended), and was scarier than notable figures like Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees. However, the outpouring of love for Art the Clown has soured over the last few weeks, with a large portion of Redditors questioning whether the clown-esque villain is truly scary or not. The reality is that, Art the Clown, like many horror villains, is a unique taste that is simply designed for specific palates.

Smile director Parker Finn has revealed that he thoroughly enjoys a satisfying jump scare, despite some moviegoers being turned off by the genre element. And despite Finn’s glaring love for jump scares, it’s interesting to note that Smile actually didn’t include too many of them — which should certainly come as a surprise. Instead, the filmmaker relied on unsettling sequences and a slow-burn type of horror that leaves fans on the edge of their seats. Whether jump scares will be implemented in his future features or not remains up in the air, although it’s safe to assume that some are expected in the pipeline.

Crawl back in tomorrow, jump scare aficionados, for another daily horror roundup.
