Jeepers Creepers 3: Third Time’s A Charm
All I can say about Jeepers Creepers 3 is that it’s about creepin’ time. This massively awaited three in a series of three horror movies featuring the wicked cool Creeper character has been in limbo hell for 13 years, almost as much time as the title monster himself, who as we know, surfaces every 23rd spring for 23 days and eats people before going back into hibernation or “food coma nappy nap time.”
The film is slated to go into production in Vancouver. That’s a mere 142.6 miles from wherever my car is parked. At this time I would formally like to offer my vast skill set at being the first victim. I can be on set in two hours and forty minutes as the Creeper crows fly.
Jeepers Creepers (2001) and Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003) were box office hits, grossing over $120 million fun coupons and giving the horror genre a timeless icon in the process. And the way JC2 was left open ended and reinforced the story arc made it that more lip smacking. Hopefully JC3 will be worth the wait. Here’s what THEY say will go down…
“Jeepers Creepers 3 will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s 23 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.”
The had me at gory glory. Actually, they had me back in 2001. And again on August 25, 2011 at 5:32 pm when I posted news about Jeepers Creepers 3, bragging to the world the movie was due any month now. But now all my pain is medicated as THIS TIME the movie’s release seems legit.
It better be.
