The first Jeepers Creepers was a box office hit on a small budget, it’s sequel went big and flopped. Now we finally get the long awaited Jeepers Creepers 3, which brings back the original cast. Well, what’s left of them. Read on…
There has been NO official announcement for Jeepers Creepers 3. Not even a trailer yet, but the release date for Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral has been revealed. We previously told you the horror movie was filming in Baton Rouge and bringing back Gina Philips as Trish.
Thanks to AMC Theaters, the spilled the information that Jeepers Creepers 3 will be released on September 26 and that it will have a running time of 1 hour and 40 minutes. if you check out IMDB.com, JC3 says the horror movies is in post production. If that is true they best hurry, since AMC already posted the release date. Bloody Disgusting first reported the news of the release date.
What does that mean for us, we should be hearing something official any day now for Jeepers Creepers 3. It also means there will surely be a trailer coming very shortly.
Jeepers Creepers 3 will take place between the events of Jeepers Creepers and Jeepers Creepers 2 and will be a very different kind of movie within the franchise.
Jeepers Creepers 3 will follow a group of hunters who are led by Meg Foster. The group is completely aware of the Creeper’s mythology, and looking to stop the creature before it ends its reign of terror that involves feeding on humans.
Gina Phillips, who starred in the original Jeepers Creepers, has said that Victor Salva has already written Jeepers Creepers 4. The plan is, assuming this movie does well at the box office, to bring back Phillips and do the movie that had originally been reported, featuring her character avenging the death of her brother, played by Justin Long in the original, while protecting her son. Though, it remains to be seen how audiences are going to respond to Jeepers Creepers 3, for various reasons.
The marketing campaign hasn’t started at all, which makes us wonder if the studio has purposely done. Not wanting to support a director Victor Salva film.
If there is any validity to that theory, then it might be his history. In 1989, Salva was jailed after molesting the 12-year-old star of his first feature film, the low-budget horror thriller Clownhouse. The star was a young boy (Nathan Forrest Winters), who he had oral sex with. That alone may be the reason why we’re NOT seeing promotion of Jeepers Creepers 3. People tend to be unsupportive of registered sex offenders.. This puts Salva in the same category as Roman Polanski for having sex with a 13-year-old or Woody Allen, who married his adopted daughter.
