What is The Creeper? The origins of the unearthly antagonist featured in the Jeepers Creepers franchise has been a source of much debate since the series’ first installment 2001. We were promised that the fiend’s backstory would be revealed in 2017’s Jeepers Creepers 3, and it was—just not to the audience! While characters in the film learned about The Creepers beginnings (and, presumably, its weaknesses), that information was never shared with viewers.
With Jeepers Creepers 3 hitting Netflix next month, expect the debate to be rekindled anew. Is The Creeper a demon? A transformed human? An alien? The Mothman or even Pazuzu? So far, no one knows. A few weeks back, the YouTube’s number one source for film analysis, FoundFlix, posted a complete breakdown of the franchise’s timeline; today, they delivered an extensive overview of The Creeper that includes the character’s mythology and everything we know about the creature at this point.
