The director claims that the distribution of the film is not entirely assured. “As you know, Terrifier 2 is a completely independent film, financed by Indieogogo and several private investors. We do not have a study or a distribution company to support us, so this campaign is grassroots at all levels. " The first part was also funded by Indiegogo and released directly to DVD by Dread Central Presents but it still does not have a distribution company, which puts the entire production at risk.
