UpcomingHorrorMovies.com, created and run by FrighT MasteR, has been a trusted resource for fans and industry insiders since 1999, so when they release information, you can definitely take stock in it. Regular readers of Horror Freak News know that we’ve been getting information about the turbulent production & roll-out Jeepers Creepers 3 from an anonymous source; apparently, UHM has a source as well, and he/she has contradicted information we have previously released.
[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.]
UHM’s source claims there is no rift between writer/director Victor Salva, a situation we reported on September 1st. Furthermore, their source claims that the 9/26 1-night only screening of JC3 is actually a preview, and a wider theatrical release will be forthcoming. Finally, their source claims reports that JC3 has been subtitled Jeepers Creepers 3: Ravenous are also false (Ravenous, they explain, was just a working title).
While we stand by our source until we receive official news to the contrary, we’re willing to bring different viewpoints into the conversation—especially when it comes from such a trusted source.
UHM’s JC3 insider also addressed a series of leaked details; when asked to confirm the validity of 10 key plot-points, he/she debunked them all! Have a look at the rumors debunked below and let us know what you think in the Comments section.
Even though these details have been debunked, everything below should be considered a potential spoiler.
The Creeper will be shown in the 1940’s as an old man, a deranged doctor who pays a witch for immortality. When the witch realizes she’s been paid with counterfeit money, she allows the doctor to keep his immortality but curses him. FALSE.
The Witch is also immortal and is responsible for waking him up every 23 years for 23 days: FALSE.
JC3 will include scenes from Darry’s (Justin Long) funeral. FALSE.
Creeper hunters devise a plan to catch the fiend by using his BEATINGU truck as bait: FALSE (although the truck does play a role in the film).
The Creepers is seen hiding in a tree sharpening his axe. FALSE.
Biker kids find the BEATINGU truck abandoned and report it to police: FALSE (at least the part where these characters report their finding to police).
The Creeper will speak. FALSE (Thank God!).
The BEATINGU truck explodes. FALSE.
Trish (Gina Phillips) shows up in a hospital at the end of JC3. FALSE (Phillips does appear briefly in the film, but not at the hospital).
The film required excessive color and contrast correction. INCONCLUSIVE.
Take these rumors with a grain of salt; while UHM’s reputation is sterling, every about JC3 has been confusing and “news” is often contradictory. One thing is certain: You can see the film at participating AMC and Cinemark theaters on 9/26; check out the trailer and synopsis below.
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.
