The Creeper emerges to harvest human body parts every 23 years, and that's how long it feels like we've been waiting for Jeepers Creepers 3! The last movie featuring the slimy, sharp-toothed Creeper came in 2003, which means we've been waiting for 13 years and counting for Jeepers Creepers 3... but what do we know about this long-awaited horror sequel?
Title, Plot & Casting for Jeepers Creepers 3
The title has been announced variously as Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral or just Jeepers Creepers III, and both still stand on Imdb. In case any of you fancy an interesting (albeit rather useless fact), the title will be Siurpuliukai 3: Katedra and Strašno strašilo 3: Katedrala in Lithuania and Serbia respectively.
The plot is noted as the following:
Trish Jenner is now a mother of a teenage son named Darry, named after the brother she lost 23 years ago. Trish has a recurring nightmare where her son suffers the same fate as her brother did, killed by the Creeper. Determined to prevent this from happening, Trish, who is now a rich and powerful woman, sets out on a final quest with Jack Taggart Sr. and Jr. to end the Creeper's reign of terror once and for all.
Trish will be played by original Jeepers Creepers actress Gina Philips, which is pretty cool as it'll be her first movie role for five years. Jonathan Breck will be returning as The Creeper himself. You can see them both in the trailer for the first movie.
Jeepers Creepers 3 Poster Artwork
The teaser poster portrays the silhouette of The Creeper, with the same jagged font as the previous two movies. A swarm of ravens or crows form a black '3' across a darkening sky.
I have to say, however, that I prefer the fan-made poster created by DeviantArt resident NetoRibeiro89.
Jeepers Creepers 3 Release Date
The movie has been set for release sometime in 2017, with no more concrete details emerging no matter how frantically horror fans google it. Still, at least they've considerately released Jeepers Creepers 1 & 2 on fancy Blu-Ray special edition so we can enjoy recapping the first two movies in excellent quality while we wait for Jeepers Creepers 3!
Jeepers Creepers 3 Trailer
Despite the fact we're still waiting on an official Jeepers Creepers 3 trailer, we have been treated to this fan-made gore-fest from Youtube user Daviid Trailers. Jeepers Creepers 3 producers: take note!
