We had previously announced that Jeepers Creepers 3, the long-gestating 3rd chapter in the franchise launched by Victor Salva in 2001, was getting a 1-night-only theatrical release on September 26th at participating AMC and Cinemark theaters. If you can’t make it on that date, we’ve just gotten word that a second one-night screening has been added; Fandango is now selling tickets for a show on October 4th. You can find out if Jeepers Creepers 3 is playing at a theater near you, HERE.
[For a summary of writer/director Victor Salva’s criminal past and why many horror fans are choosing to boycott Jeepers Creepers 3, follow the link embedded in this article. We are also including a link to a statement from Nathan Forrest Winters, Salva’s abuse survivor. We support everyone who chooses to boycott this film but will continue to bring interested readers unbiased reporting.]
In other news, recent reports for UpcomingHorrorMovies.com seems to have been contradicted; the site ran information that specifically contradicted what our source had told us. They insisted that the 1-night screening was just a test-run, and JC3 would be enjoying a worldwide theatrical release in 2018. We’ve just gotten news, however, that JC3 will be released on Blue-ray/DVD on December 26th of this year. It’s already available for pre-order on Amazon, HERE.
While we were opened to the possibility that we had been misinformed, it’s good to know that we were, in fact, correct about everything we had previously reported.
