We’ve been following the often-turbulent saga of Jeepers Creepers 3 for (literally) years. Even though the film has been completed and fans will finally get the follow-up they’ve been waiting over a decade for, turbulence and confusion continues. Various media outlets (including this one) reported that Jeepers Creepers 3 would be released nationwide on September 26th but THIS IS NOT TRUE. The only opportunity Creeper fans will have to see the film for months is at the Advanced Screening we promoted yesterday.

The event is being Coordinated by Kory Davis who has been working closely with the film’s key players to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience. “I’ve seen the film and it’s amazing,” Davis told me during a recent sit-down. “It ties in perfectly with the first two films.”
Confusion over the inaccurate announcement has caused a bit of unnecessary heartache for fans. Davis explains: “I’ve got people telling me, ‘I’ll just wait until the 26th’ but that’s not the case.” Jeepers Creepers 3 is not being handled like your usual Hollywood offering; as opposed to plans be negotiated by a studio or distributor, the film’s financiers are attempting to negotiate a roll-out. This is most likely the cause of conflicting and inaccurate information.
“The event is already almost sold out,” Davis states with pride. To recap: Cast members from Jeepers Creepers will participate in a Q&A before a screening of the original, released in 2000. That screening will be followed by the world premiere of Jeepers Creepers 3 and another Q&A with some surprise guests; Gina Phillips and Jonathan Breck are already confirmed to attend. The event takes place in Los Angeles on September 13th. Check out the flyer below and the Official Event Page, HERE.

Finally, Davis was able to share the very first pics from the film; we’ve seen leaked photos and behind-the-scenes pics, but the images below are the first released from the film itself! The first one features The Creeper (Breck) back in action and the 2nd shows characters from Jeepers Creepers 3 examining a familiar looking relic. Have a look-see.
Official Synopsis: Taking place on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three-day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sargent 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 film features Meg Foster, Gina Philips, and Jonathan Breck.
