For fans of the Jeepers Creepers franchise – the time for the next sequel is almost at hand. After years in development hell, the movie has actually finished production, with a quickly impending release date. But act fast, as its theatrical release seems to be a one day only affair.
A new trailer has been released to advertise this one day showing, and it promises a rather dark return to the roots of the franchise. The Creeper is presented as a malevolent force, and the campiness of Jeepers Creepers 2 seems to be toned down. A good sign indeed.
Writer and director Victor Salva himself is very excited to be returning to the original lore and being able to expand on it.
“What will go before cameras as ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ is a new and terrifying chapter from the Jeepers universe. We are bringing back the Creeper’s truck, and will be addressing the big questions about The Creeper: what it is, where it came from and why it does what it does.”
It certainly will be fun to see the Creeper’s truck again, and some of that familiar iconography. There’s also been reports that a fourth film could be on the way. Be sure to check out the trailer below!
Jeepers Creepers 3 will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sergent Tubbs teams up with a task force hellbent on destroying the Creeper for good. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.
Jonathan Breck will return as The Creeper and Brandon Smith will play Sergent Davis Tubbs. Gina Phillips will also return as her character Trish for the first time since the original film.
Jeepers Creepers 3 will premiere in theaters for one night only on September 26.
