The Jeepers Creepers films get a bad rap because of the man behind the camera. Victor Salva, because of his sexual predator status and prison time has long been a divisive figure in the horror world. Some think he should be shunned – banned from making more films, others feel he’s done his time – paid his price to society and should be left alone to make his films. Through all of this, he has managed to build a true horror franchise – and a true horror icon in The Creeper.
He’s managed to get Jeepers Creepers 3 made but protestors have made getting it into theaters pretty impossible. Fathom Events have stepped up and they are going to show the film – One Night Only – on Sept. 26th. You’ll have to check with you local cinemas to see if they are participating. Screen Media Films has cut together a trailer to promote the event.
From the films press site:
“For one night only via Fathom Events on September 26th. On the last day of The Creeper’s 23 day feeding frenzy, Sargent Tubbs teams up with a task force hell-bent on destroying the creature for good. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as his enemies get close to discovering his dark origins.”
Jonathan Breck, Stan Shaw, Gina Phillips, Chester Rushing, Gabrielle Haugh and Meg Foster star.
