I am going to spoil any possible excitement you may have had for this film later on, but for now, here is the simple information on the project and it’s rough plot synopsis by director Victor Salva himself:
Salva said. “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 we will be addressing the big questions about the Creeper: what it is, where it came from, and why it does what it does.”
First thing, I never think it’s a good idea for horror films to reveal too much about the entity that makes us all scared because what makes horror work is an audiences fear through lack of understanding. Second, it could turn out to be a good film for sure with some good elements to it, but here is where I ruin all your fun and you guys scoff because you were really excited, here we go…
Victor Salva (the director) is a convicted child molester folks. It becomes a difficult issue to face especially when discussing an art form and the person outside of the art itself. I will never condemn someone for seeing a film that involved a conflicting human being, but this one is tough for me to swallow. It puts a whole new spin on the Jeepers Creepers aspect of it all even though Salva spent his full term sentence of a measly 15 months, but, it does help that I myself am not the biggest horror fan anyway! For you all who are, of course do not feel bad for wanting to see a film you enjoy.
I still watch Braveheart and I don’t agree with what Gibson has done so is that hypocritical? Well, pedophilia trumps racism for the time being if you can believe it. The question now is, can we put this behind now that you all know the situation? Either way, that is not my decision.
