The Third ‘Jeepers Creepers’ is Currently in Pre-production (Exclusive)

Last April, production was shut down on the long-gestured Jeepers Creepers 3 with no word on if or when the project would be revived.

I was able to exclusively confirm that pre-production is currently underway on the sequel, which I am hearing will now film in Louisiana instead of Vancouver, Canada.

Victor Salva is still in the director’s chair with filming scheduled to begin next month.

While we are unsure if any of the casting has changed, before last year’s abrupt shut-down I had told you guys that Gina Philips will be reviving her role of Trish, the surviving sibling in the first Jeepers Creepers.

I also heard that the Creeper’s van, featuring the “BEATNGU” license plate, will play a major role.

When originally announced, it was reported that Jonathan Breck would return as The Creeper, with Brandon Smith as Sergeant Davis Tubbs.

“’Jeepers Creepers 3′ will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sergent 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 first two films in the franchise, Jeepers Creepers and Jeepers Creepers II, were both global box office hits, grossing over $120 million combined worldwide. The first two films were also hugely popular with genre fans and critics, and horror fans have long clamored for a new installment of The Creeper’s misdeeds.


Editor’s Note: Last year, Trace posted this op-ed in which he tackled the criminal past of director Victor Salva, creator of the Jeepers Creepers franchise. The piece was, and still is, meant to open discussions on the possibility of separating a work of art from the person who created it and, if so, how the viewer makes sense of this.

We brought this up because we wanted to see what you, our readers, thought when it comes to Salva and his conviction for sexually abusing a child. We found ourselves questioning whether or not we should even continue to bring news of his works. And while we still struggle with this, we feel in this case that it is our duty to bring you information that we are presented. However, we will do so in a neutral and unbiased manner which may seem cold and incredibly direct. Please continue to let us know your thoughts on this as we take it incredibly seriously.

    I’d be a lot more comfortable watching the film if it had a different director. Nostalgia is the only saving factor of the first two films after finding out about Salva.

    • MySelfDestruct

      If he was smart, he would have stepped away and maybe took a producer credit and let someone else direct it. It probably wouldn’t have gotten so much attention but he clearly doesn’t care.

  • Munchie

    Blah blah blah won’t watch because of Salva blah blah blah

  • Spencer Rutt

    Can not wait for this movie, So glad it’s the same director and the plot sounds interesting. As long as they don’t make the Creeper CGI, I’ll be okay.

    • ScriptGiverTJ

      What if they had the creeper blow children?

  • Biscoito18

    I hope they don’t ruin the Creeper revealing too much of its origin.

  • Creepshow

    I give you credit for your “Editor’s Note”, Brad. Because honestly, I can’t read another 100+ comments about this subject matter again. The Jeepers movies weren’t even good enough to talk about without this side-show.

    • Tiger Quinn

      Oh good, then you won’t be here stinking up the joint.

  • TheTwoJakes

    Even though I was sickened by his actions on Clownhouse, Victor Salva is a talented filmmaker. Maybe Im just a sellout, but I also still watch Polanski and Woody Allen movies even though they also did some rotten things to underage children. I think it would be harder for me to look past these things if he was infront of the camera instead of behind it. Im just thrilled its going into production and we can finally get an ending to this story.

    • Creepshow

      What the hell difference does it make, if someone is behind the camera, or in front of it? Aside from the fact, that the person behind the camera can still hide?

      • Tiger Quinn

        So if the director were a pedophile, you’d be okey dokey with that. Okay, we’ve all learned something about Creepshow today.

        • Creepshow

          No, you taught yourself that you still can’t comprehend what you read.

          • Tiger Quinn

            Oh that’s adorable. I imagine your second effort is going to be even better!

          • ScriptGiverTJ

            You don’t understand what he’s saying do you?

        • Erik The Red

          Were? He is.

    • Mamet006

      Yeah no proof Woody Allen did anything to any underage children. Stop lumping him in with Polanski.

      • Saturn

        Indeed, I’m not fully clued in on what happened with Allen, but I was under the impression that he had sex with his – legal aged? – adoptive daughter?
        That in itself is icky – but you can’t compare that to the abuse of a (12? year old) child.

        • Santos L Halper

          He was also accused of molesting another adoptive daughter who was under age but no evidence was found and it was dropped by police. It’s pretty widely believed that Mia Farrow coached the under aged daughter to accuse Allen after he ran off with the legal aged daughter because she (Mia) was pissed but I’m guessing that’s what people are referring to.

        • Mamet006

          Soon-Yin was never his daughter. She was from Mia’s previous relationship. People just want things to be more perverted so they will make them so. It’s strange to bang and marry your girlfriend’s daughter yes but it’s far from morally apprehensible. We all love the porn where the step-dad bangs the daughter, right? 😛

  • Tiger Quinn

    Long gestured? Did you mean gestating?

  • Trisha Tachanawa

    As far as the rumored plot goes, I just don’t like it’s suppose to take place on the last day of it’s next feeding cycle. But Trish returning would be awesome.

  • Khy

    Chile…..*Sips tea*

  • Rofair

    Whatever you feel about Salva, this is a horror site and BD is reporting on the status of a horror movie. I understand people’s concerns with Salva’s past but this really isn’t the place for it. It’s nice that they added the addendum to give people that option but again it is completely acceptable for BD to separate the director’s past from their reporting the ongoing production (and eventual release) of this film.

    • Spencer Rutt

      thank you!

    • MySelfDestruct

      I dont see anyone arguing against BD reporting on the film. But people still have the option to not engage with this film if they choose. I think some in here are so desperate to see part 3 that they will literally say its no big deal so they don’t feel like bad people.

  • Rohan Sorensen

    I don’t connect the people who makes the film with the film itself. Not choosing to report on a movie when something like that happened is arguable, but still a missed opportunity. I personally love Jeepers Creepers (2 more than 1, which is rare) and would like to hear more about it, but at the end of the day it is the site that makes the decision to post about a certain film or not, and I will respect BD’s decision.

  • Joe Karably

    Fuck Salva and fuck his movies.

  • wil mcmullen

    I don’t really look to hollywoods directors for a moral compass, or God like in anyway. He made a mistake many years ago, people do that. Now, let’s let that go. Jeepers Creepers 3… please?

    • Erik The Red

      Mistake? You have a hell of a definition for the word mistake. No. People don’t do what he did and call it a mistake. Disgusting. If that were my kid he would’ve had a bullet in the back of his head the day I found out.

      • wil mcmullen

        Firstly, I’d like to thank you Erik, ur response prompted me to take a closer look into the allegations and he most certainly is a monster. As I only heard the details in passing and not in it’s entirety. My only question then is, why is he allowed to still Direct? I do not condone what he did. I’ve gone thru a situation myself at the age of 5 and we’ll end it there.

        • Erik The Red

          I appreciate it and I’m sorry you had a traumatic experience. I’m floored how passive some of these comments are on here. Their logic is as long as he makes good movies he gets a pass. Seriously? If it happened to them or someone in their family it’d be a different story. I used to be a Catholic (I’m an atheist now) until that massive child molestation cover up happened. They had the audacity to ask people to forgive the molester priests that they relocated multiple times to assault many different children. I was done with religion after that and I’ve never looked back. I’m a happy atheist now. 🙂 Be well and take care.

          • wil mcmullen

            I agree and I am willing to bet that some of the people who have taken a relaxed stance and their willingness to overlook the implications in favor of his ‘talent’, may not know the severity of his crime. Cause i sure didn’t, and this will now teach me to chime in on a topic blindly, without all the facts. I can look past a lot of things and appreciate the talent but, child molestation is something i simply cant and wont subscribe to.
            Thank you for your kind words Erik. Be well!

    • Bart Crowe

      He had sex with children! You shouldn’t be allowed to have a Hollywood career after that.

      • wil mcmullen

        Agreed and when i researched the entirety of the allegations, i’m baffled as to why he still is.

      • Saturn

        Well according to Corey Feldman it’s very common – he claims himself (and you’d be a fool not to accept the possibility) that there is a “casting couch” for children – and many, many top names in showbiz are involved in the Satanic sex abuse of children.

  • REC03

    I absolutely loved Clownhouse as a kid but i re-watched it a few years ago and was very, very disturbed by it for now obvious reasons. I myself have a hard time separating the art and real life. My conclusion is i will see this when it comes out but i will not pay for it.

  • Erik The Red

    I was excited about Jeepers Creepers 3 until I read the editor’s note (which I’m extremely grateful was there). I have no clue how I’ve never heard about this sick fuck. I really don’t know how I feel about seeing this movie now. It’s truly disgusting to think my movie ticket money would be going to a child molester. It figures two of my favorite horror movies were done by a degenerate child molester. Gross.

    • wil mcmullen

      Agreed

    • Saturn

      Aye, and Disney were the first to employ him when he left prison with the movie Powder. And people believe Disney are child friendly.

      • Erik The Red

        Disney is a corporate farce. They had workers with past child sexual offenses working as the dressed up characters that pose with children for pictures in Disney World. Like they couldn’t do efficient background checks on their employees knowing they’d be interacting with children. All Disney cares about is their profit margins.

  • Brian Rosenthal

    Cannot in good conscience continue to support this man or his work.

  • shane

    just give us the third already,just because we like the movies dont mean we like his life choices,more creeper less creeping and id be happy

  • J Jett

    if this indeed is true (and i have no reason to believe it’s not) and that gorgeous Gina Philips is indeed returning to the role then i am pretty psyched!

  • Iris

    I care only about the movie coming out. I’m a huge fan of the other 2 movies and you have no idea how long i’ve been waiting for it to come out. I’m a horror movie lover and horror movies are what interest me, I’m not a judge to judge the former director of it and i don’t even know the story so i can’t give an opinion. All i want is to see Jeeper Creepers 3 finally coming out. I can’t wait. Plese just finish the movie already.

  • ThunderDragoon

    Finally! I hope it’s true that Gina Philips is returning. Filming starts next month? Woot woot! So excited. Now if only we could get some good news about the new Halloween. Unfortunately, they’re probably going to wait until the 40th anniversary to release it.

  • Bart Crowe

    Never watched the Jeeper Creeper films because the director is a convicted pedophile who slept with boys 14 and under and distributed child porn. Roman Polanski and Woody Allen have nothing on this guy.

    • Justin McGill

      so.. Polanski drugging.. taking pictures and raping a girl that’s 13 has NOTHING on Salva? I mean.. you can say they’re all deplorabe.. but.. what makes Salva so much worse than Polanski? or.. Polanski so much better?

      • Bart Crowe

        Fair enough

        • Brett Janovich

          dude victor committed the crime only one time one time polsanki and allen did it multiple times big fdifference

          • Bart Crowe

            He molested children and trafficked child pornography. Dude got caught once is all.

  • Finally! Hell yeah! I can’t wait! I know, I know… but I can’t help it, JC and Clownhouse are two of my fave horror movies of all time.

  • Oh btw, if working on movies keeps Salva from molesting children: fine with me. Imagine what happens if he doesn’t get the chance to do some work?

    • REC03

      well he molested the kid he was directing in his movie.

      • Chocago

        Yeah in the 90s not last year

        • REC03

          well then all is forgiven.

        • Meisha’s Taint

          What the fuck does that mean?

          How many years have to pass before you are no longer a child rapist?

          • Brett Janovich

            hes not a rapist anymore he hasnt raped anyone since 1989 only one time meisha look at john gacy and jeffrey dahmer and ted bundy and richard speck whove done it multiple times victor is different hes not done it since 1989 and has has shown hes changed

      • When and how often did this happen? Once in 1989.
        How many movies did he shoot afterwards? 8 movies where nothing happened.

        • REC03

          Once is enough imo. Im not saying he should be killed or unable to work at all but to be given the power to direct films is questionable. Also his JP movies are filled with creepy sub textual stuff that is almost mocking what he did and its disturbing.

          • Brett Janovich

            not really thats stupid its about a murderer dummy not a molestor

          • REC03

            you must be a friend of Victor’s. the only reason i can see someone defending a pedo so much. take care.

        • Saturn

          Oh, so because he only got caught the once then it’s fine?
          And whose to say nothing happened on those other movie sets – for all we know there could have been hush money involved.

          If a school teacher was convicted of molesting a child – but it only happened ONCE! – would it be acceptable for him/her to work with children again? Hell, he’s served the time – and was a damn good teacher…..

        • ScriptGiverTJ

          Dude see the fucking movie if you want to see the fucking movie. you need to defend the sick fuck too in order to tell yourself it’s okay? That’s on you dude not us.

    • If anything that would do the opposite it as it would give him the opportunity since he would be in charge of the production (he’s the director) and allowed him to abuse that power. Making him work a normal 9 – 5 job in a normal setting would actually be the better route for a person w his history.

  • Sometimes you just have to separate art from personal life. Jeffrey Jones? I still love seeing him in Ravelous Beetlejuice. Polanski? Allen? Two of the greatest filmmakers of all time.

    • Saturn

      I wonder if you’d be happy to separate art from family life if a convicted paedophile moved in next door to you, and seemed to be quite friendly with your young children?

      Should Hitler be forgiven for the Holocaust because earlier on he’d been awarded the Person Of The Year award by Time magazine?

      • Comparing the Salva situation with Hitler… you’re really pulling the nazi card? End of discussion.

        • Saturn

          Well should I compare him to other paedophiles, who perhaps don’t make movies that you like, to see your attitude to them?
          Would you be happy to support a convicted paedophile being giving a job working in a school?

          • Brett Janovich

            john wayne gacy ted bundy and richard speck and jeffrey dahmer were far worse then victor victor only did it one but look at how many times john richard and ted and jeffrey did the crime several fucking times when victor did it only fucking one time and regrets it so yea victor did his time he doesnt deserve to be treated like an outcast or slammed shamed anymore.

          • Saturn

            He only got CAUGHT once (but, but, it was only once, so because I like he’s movies we should exonerate him!).
            He is a paedophile – he should do the walk of shame every day of his life. If it were up to me he would be branded with a P on his forehead so everyone he meets would know what he has done.

            And yes, Gacy,Bundy and Speck were much more prolific series killers and rapists – who all got due punishment – and hopefully are rotting in hell.
            But it’s not those guys who Disney employed for their family friendly company is it – it’s none of those guys who are directing this movie, is it? So it’s totally irrelevant that those sick bastards were more prolific.
            It’s easy to play the “well, what about so-and-so who did worse!” game – those people can be discussed later in a thread related to them.

    • Randy Moses

      Wow, I had no idea about Jeffery Jones until just now.

      • and that’s the problem. People always bitch about Salva, but there are others out there who are way worse,

        • ScriptGiverTJ

          It’s so weird people bitch about Salva in the comments section of an article about Salva. So so weird.

        • MySelfDestruct

          People like Allen and Polanski aren’t really the target directors of this site thus they don’t get mentioned. If you visit various other film sites, they get called out on the regular. Sadly Hollywood refuses to call them out.

  • CruduxCruo

    It’s like vegetarians thinking that by them eating veggies is really gonna put an end to the slaughter of chickens, cows, turkeys…… I hardly think Salva is gonna miss anyone’s $12.00 if they boycott his movies. He gets his moolah up front.

    • REC03

      but if the movie flops then the less likely he will get other things green lit.

    • ScriptGiverTJ

      vegetarians. Pedophile. Yeah same ballpark.

      • Master99

        I do try to avoid both of those things.

    • Carl Griffiths

      Ridiculous comparison.

      • CruduxCruo

        I guess I didn’t “dumb it down” enough for you all. If someone is that bloody disgusted that he directed a film, start a petition and send it to the Producer(s), movie studios, etc. See how far that gets you. And NO I don’t condone paedophiles. I own quite a firearms collection, but I don’t hunt animals………

        • ScriptGiverTJ

          It’s like a vegetable man. Green and shit and just like a finger kid bang. Veggies man.

    • Brett Janovich

      lol moolah thats funny like that word moolah can i have my moolah now i want my moolah and i want my moolah now lol XD

  • Adam Clifton

    I hope Gina Philips is back for Jeepers Creepers 3. If it has the same tone as the first and leaves out the stereotypical slasher characters from the 2nd, it should be great

  • ScriptGiverTJ

    These films suck. Salva’s a sick fuck. Pass pass pass.

    • Chocago

      So why bother clicking this page

      • Saturn

        So that if Salva ever reads these comments he’s reminded that perhaps Hollywood has forgiven and forgotten – WE haven’t.

        • Chocago

          We havent ? that was years ago he paid hes debt an has been clean seince

          • Mr. Screamer

            That’s not how it works.

          • Saturn

            Paedophiles NEVER clear their debt until they have been strung up and left for the crows to peck out their eyes.
            Allegedly.

            You forgive people who have shoplifted and served their time.
            You forgive people who have broken some windows and served their time,

            Paedophiles are another matter.
            Just because he served his gaol time doesn’t give him a pass – he’s wrecked at LEAST one persons life who has to deal with that trauma until the day they die.
            The so-called director has been able to move on with his life – an no doubt would do it all over again (if he hasn’t already) if he could get away with it.

            Again I ask the same question I often ask when this evil cunt is being discussed, and people are saying “he’s served his time” – I wonder if you’d trust him to babysit your young children?
            Hell, what’s the risk? He’s served his time and is most definitely cured.

      • ScriptGiverTJ

        Because I can. Why bother replying to a comment you don’t like?

  • alliedcola

    Victor Salva should not have a career after what it did, and it’s arguable whether or not it should even have a life.

    I will not watch any of its movies, for any reason, but I do not have anything against anyone if they do.

    EDIT; And I most definitely do not have a problem with you guys reporting about it and its movies, you’re a news site, after all 😛

    • Erik The Red

      I agree.

    • Chocago

      Should not have a career ? Only difference between him and others in hollywwood is he got caught

      • Well said!

      • Saturn

        And that’s the point – he was caught and convicted.
        A convicted paedophile.
        I wonder how many out there who reckon we should separate his work and actions would be willing to let their young children be alone with him on a movie set…….

      • MySelfDestruct

        Well yeah but if we knew the others, we could boycott them too. Money speaks volumes.

    • Saturn

      I’m happy to see that you use the term “it”.
      There are those out there who claim that there are elite paedophile rings, all throughout Hollywood and in Politics, Sports etc.
      The fact that Disney were the first to give “it” work after leaving prison for sexual abuse of a child kinda supports that.
      Disney – supposedly a family friendly company – but they are happy enough to employ convicted nonces.
      It speaks for it’s self.

  • Ford W. Maverick

    Long as Salva is involved I don’t care.

  • eagleye

    I’m excited about this project. The first two films are great.

  • Mike Lawrence

    All issues aside with Salva, which should never be taken lightly, I would love to see another instalment. But I’m a little surprised he’s still directing it and production are willing to potentially lose viewers/money on this just for having him attached.
    It’s a tough issue to speak on, and I understand the argument. Separating the art from the artist is something everyone will have a different take on, I’m sure.

  • pablitonizer

    I think it’s up to you like BD stated…you can choose to watch it or not, as simple as that!

  • nicholasmwalker

    sigh, every time i watch one of these movies and i’m really enjoying it, i’ll suddenly remember that silva is a pedophile and then a shadow is cast on my enjoyment. as far as letting the guy work in hollywood… the whole idea of going to prison is rehabilitation, the guy did his time and now we have to let him be a productive member of society… just don’t let him make any movies with children in them. keep in mind, if society turns their collective back on these types of guys and won’t give them work, they inevitably backslide to a life of crime, which isn’t to say that they won’t anyway, but their chances of true rehabilitation are much better if they have meaningful work.

  • Jack Derwent

    I don’t care for Salva (I thought JC was a decent film but that’s it) but I am curious as to why he gets more flack than Polanski (who has most of Hollywood on his side) when the latter fled the country and gloated about what he did (“Everyone wants to fuck young girls!”). Whereas Salva at least served his time in prison.

    • Fracassi

      Hell, the kid from Jeepers Creepers 2 worked with at least two sex offenders . I think this is a “under the rug” thing in Hollywood. And by “the kid,” I mean Luke Edwards. Yes, that is right, Lucas from, “The Wizard,” Is also disturbed.

      Edit: To clarify – Lucas is not Luke Edwards. Luke Edwards was just in the same movie as the guy that played Lucas.

      • Brett Janovich

        actually hes not disturbed he may care wat the director did but victor did nothing wrong to him so hes not disturbed

    • The Drucifer

      It is a double standard but one made Chinatown and the other made Powder. One was also a straight sex crime which tends to be a bit more “allowed” than a homosexual crime.

      It’s also the “greatness” of the artists in question. Polanski is a fucking piece of shit but he is a genius at what he does and at least to my knowledge hasn’t fetishized his crime on film. Salva fucking loves to stick his sickness on screen. It’s like he lives vicariously through his character,(The Creeper) or Through his camera(Powder and all of its gazing shots at Powder in various states of undress)

      This is not me taking a piss at the man’s homosexuality, which is fine and normal, but he is a registered sex offender who is most famous for writing about young men and boys in danger.

      With all that said he did serve his crime and he follows the law, but it is not up to me or any of us to forgive and no one should ever forget what he did.

      • I agree with you. Molestation of any kind is repugnant, but it seems people cry the loudest when it’s same sex crime. I suppose that somehow adds an extra layer of “evil” in some people’s minds even if it is subconscious.

        EDIT: Just a few months ago in October an article was written on this site about Polanski’s Repulsion. In the comments…not ONE mention of his reprehensible actions.

        • The Drucifer

          I fully believe the same sex nature of his crime marks it more deeply in people’s head. That and the boy still comes out to protest.

          • Brett Janovich

            pple just need to stop dwelling on the past

          • Saturn

            Would you say that face to face the kid who who molested?

        • Brett Janovich

          wat polanki did is fucked up and worse then wat victor did

  • Khy

    If you want to see the film, see it! That’s your right.

    But it’s also someone else’s right if they don’t. Salva is a degenerate and what he did was NOT a mistake. A mistake is bumping into someone or forgetting to pick something up at a store- not raping a child. No matter how much time he served won’t hange that. So yes, people WILL keep talking about what he did as they should. You don’t molest a child and then expect it to never come up.

    If you don’t want to have that conversation then simply don’t engage. But don’t expect it to stop being had. It’s a serious one

    • Brett Janovich

      hes not a monster an ymore cuz he hasnt raped anyone after he did his time a true human being makes mistakes does things that are very wrong and will move on and never ever do what they did again and victor hasnt raped anyone ever again and isnt a monster anymore cuz true humans change and victor chsanged hes not the same person from 1989 anymore.

      • Khy

        Sucking off a child is not a mistake.

  • I have no idea how I somehow missed that Salva was a convicted child molester. I won’t be able to enjoy these movies any more knowing it was created by a pedophile. Thanks to the editor for bringing it up.

    • wil mcmullen

      I dont believe it was as highly publicized back then as it might have been in this day in age. I was slightly younger at the time and i can assure it never made the news in my neck of the woods. I heard about it when i was a little older, but believe me it was nowhere near as detailed as what i’ve read later. Once i read that article thanks to BD editor, it changed my perspective. I dont give a damn if this new installment of J.C. gets golden reviews- i will have not being watching.

      • MySelfDestruct

        Yes, it was very hush hush and hidden well. If I remember correctly, there was a rumor that one of the boys was an actor and grew up to continue work and I don’t want to say his name because it was never confirmed but google will probably answer if you search. He has had steady work but it was never really talked about.

        • wil mcmullen

          It’s a damn shame these types of things are swept under the rug. Salva really needs to be in jail.

          • Brett Janovich

            he was dummy hes not a criminal anymore he hasnt raped anyone after he did his time.

    • The Drucifer

      I enjoyed Jeepers Creepers when I first saw it then my boss told me about Salva and the subtext of the movie just leapt out at me and now it’s all I can see.

      • Brett Janovich

        there is no subtext to me cuz the creeper isnt a pedo in the film hes a fucking murderer not a pedo. and victor is a pedo but let him make the films ok cuz the whole he did this thing is getting fucking annoying and old it is old news

        • The Drucifer

          Dude should make his movies but he should also expect this he raped a child

  • Comfortably Numb

    I always find it ironic how in Jeepers Creepers 2, we were given the standard racist white guy vs forever persecuted heroic black man story angle. A bleeding heart morality lesson from a guy who thought nothing of filming himself having sex with a young boy. In America though, we are about twenty years away from being brainwashed into compassion and understanding for pedophiles instead of anger. Twenty years ago, the idea of men being allowed into the ladies rest rooms sounded just as insane, but here we are.

    • Khy

      You’re going into outterspace. This is a conversation about Victor Salva- not for you to turn this into a platform to talk about bathroom politics. Save all that for your Facebook page.

      • Comfortably Numb

        Nobody turned it into a platform for bathroom politics, I was pointing out how the once unthinkable is now a reality in America. And yes, America is slowly creeping towards compassion for the people who prey on children just as we now are encouraged to do for criminals and people with mental illness. You don’t make the rules Khy, so learn to read what someone is saying before crying over your lazy, knee jerk misinterpretation of their opinion.

        • Khy

          I see only one potentially mentally ill person here.

          Keep your bullshit propaganda out of this. This is about Victor Salva. Not your thoughts on transgendered people. Or black people. Or liberals. Or the president elect. Or whatever topic you’re trying desperately to get on your soapbox about.

          Victor fucking Salva is the topic.

          • Comfortably Numb

            And it was you fucking crybaby moron. THE POINT OF THE STORY IS SHOULD A CONVICTED CHILD MOLESTER BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE WORKING IN HOLLYWOOD. MY POINT IS THAT WHAT WAS ONCE CONSIDERED UNTHINKABLE IN THIS COUNTRY IS NOW A REALITY. If Victor Salva can work in Hollywood, why can’t a convicted pedophile work as a teacher? Stick too your own threads and stop trying to censor any thought or idea that you feel doesn’t belong here.

          • Khy

            If you don’t want anyone responding then don’t engage in a public forum. 😉

            Stop playing victim. You tried making this about transgendered people and made yourself look look like an idiot in the process.

            Victor Salva. Say his name.

          • Comfortably Numb

            Just another day on Bloody Disgusting for the gay mafia, trying to dictate to everyone what they can think, say, and feel. Talking to you is like talking to a small child, you cannot and will not comprehend the true meaning of the post, only the censorship of anything that endangers your delicate and fragile feelings. Either way this argument is over. I’m having too much fun on another forum making a poster named Khy sing nothing but praise and defense for Victor Salva. – LOL, see ya around snowflake.

          • Kev Weldon

            You’re a frothing, transphobic, racist lunatic.

            I can say that and know you’re feelings aren’t hurt and that you believe I have the right to say it, other wise you’d be a hypocrite, right?

          • Khy

            LOL Gay mafia? God you’re a text book dork. Sorry you feel oppressed and censored of something someone said on a horror movie website, You poor victim. Must be your biggest outrage since starbucks “waged war on Christmas!”. *eye roll*

          • ScriptGiverTJ

            Comparing a trans person using the bathroom to a child molester is why he called your shit out. And snowflake? You’re the precious safe space needing dolt who freaked out when someone called you out on your phobic shit.

          • Ash Housewares

            What the hell are you talking about? You went off on some bizarre thing about some dumb American non-issue that America likes to engage in. At this point, I literally have no idea what you’re even trying to accomplish. The original point was do you give a “pass” to a child molester, if you like his movie? Focus little man. Focus.

  • Carl Griffiths

    I don’t think you should support or promote him or his works.

    He’s a real life monster. I prefer the fictional ones.

    • Brett Janovich

      hes not a monster anymore if he was hed still be doing it again so stop

  • Iris

    Those people who don’t want to watch the movies are just whiners cause Jeeper Creepers 3 is gonna have another director not the pedophile accused one so what’s your problem ? Let us have the god damn movie. I’ve been waiting for ir for so long

    • Peter Kushing

      Where does it say that this creep isn’t involved with this film?

    • THGrimm

      Please re-read: “Victor Salva is still in the director’s chair with filming scheduled to begin next month.” “Last year, Trace posted this op-ed in which he tackled the criminal past of director Victor Salva, creator of the Jeepers Creepers franchise.”

    • MySelfDestruct

      I think most of us would love a JC 3 without him. I think thats really the point here.

      • Brett Janovich

        well the only one who can film it right is victor

  • diapers

    Gosh, we keep beating this one around, eh? My opinion, serving 15 months of a 3 year sentence is lean for what he did, which was deliberate and totally fucked. Waaaaay to lean a sentence. I blame Salva for the crime, but the “system” for the lax punishment. To his “credit”, he did plead guilty, do his time (again too little), this is above and beyond what Polanski did. The Salva of today, I’d rather see him stay on the wagon than fuck with more little kids, yes? I’d venture that making films, rather than walling at home, is more likely to keep his head screwed on right. All of that shit aside, I’ll see the flick, same treatment I gave to the Pianist.

    • Redsam6

      “to his credit he pleaded guilty”
      that statement is sooo wrong.
      you do NOT give credit to a piece of shit like that just because he admitted it, the fact that he admitted it means nothing.

      • diapers

        I concur that his actions deserve the moniker “piece of shit”. But admission does indeed mean things, it has implications both legal and otherwise. In the field of psychology, it is, in fact paramount in terms of rehabilitation. To each their own. I do understand your knee jerk reaction.

        • DJV1985

          There seems to be something wrong with society that a guy rapes a little boy and because he pleads guilty and or “serves his time” and people seem to think that we should put what’s happened in the past. I’m sorry but like I said to someone else, imagine it being you as a kid and having some fat slob attack and rape you. People are forgetting what this has done to the kid and that annoys the hell out of me.

          Oh and the idea that admitting it should make me feel less about how big a piece of crap he is. That’s more the argument you have with a kid than a full grown man who raped a kid and then said ‘Oops I’m sorry. I did it my bad. Now where’s my next film script’ (I’m paraphrasing there lol).

        • Redsam6

          It’s not a knee jerk reaction and you clearly know very little about how these animals minds work. First the legal side of it has nothing to do with the issue, 2nd they do not get “rehabilitated” they get controlled. Looking shit up on google doesn’t cut it buddy I’ve spent years studying monsters of society and I actually know what I’m talking about. Trying to make an actual child molester not want to molest a child is like trying to make a gay person not gay.

      • Brett Janovich

        actually it means something he actually regrets what he did and hasnt done anything wrong after he was released so yea he is better now so yea.

        • Redsam6

          You have absolutely no way of knowing whether or not he regrets doing it or has not re offended.

  • John Connor

    If Salva ran for President and said the exact same things Donald Trump said, do you think he would have won?

  • Blade4693

    I am pretty torn on this whole thing myself, I loved the Jeepers Creepers films and was so pumped for a 3rd but last year I just found out about all this stuff he had done. I guess since he has been punished for it I can kind of try to block it out and just enjoy the movies but it’s not that easy.

    Idk man lol Part of me thinks I should not support him, his films or anything he does because of what he did, but on the other hand if the law gave him his punishment and he did it and it’s done with, should I let it go and give him another chance? People can change, and clinging on to the past forever is never good either.

    I don’t know lol

  • Marchello David

    if you want to promote the movie and inform, you are in your right, but don’t try to sell that “art separate from personal life” bullshit cuz i ain’t buying it. Art represents lifes,statements and expresses the director’s mind and influence, so his movies are a part of him, i mean.. just watch jeeper creepers 2 (a movie full of young and attractive boys) AFTER knowing the whole context behind it,and then come tell me it doesn’t represent salva’s views and taste, that’s what he does, and how he does it.. he uses his status and title to attract and use young actors. and the fact that his movies get advertised will allow him to continue to do so. that’s all.

    • Brett Janovich

      not really thats dumb nothing about the jc films involves rape

  • Peter Kushing

    Honestly, knowing that creep is still gonna be involved in this film makes me not really even give a fuck about it anymore. There are a million folks out there who could just as easily do that pervert’s job of directing, but for some weird reason, the real creep will be in the directors chair. I wonder how many dudes Salva had to blow to keep this gig?

  • Michael Dooney

    Just report on the film. Salva may be a piece of shit, but I will go to a different site to learn more about his legal situation and background; I come here to learn about upcoming horror movies. It is nearly impossible to find refuge from political debates these days, as the discussion of any topic is inevitably hijacked into political territory (several comments on here being evidence of this). Sometimes the elephant in the room is more appropriately discussed in a different room.

    • Peter Kushing

      How can you care about any film, while knowing the director is buttbangin lil’ boys? Get yo’ life up.

      • Michael Dooney

        I’m not defending him or the film (which I’m not particularly interested in, regardless). I’m just saying that the nature of the journalism should fit the forum. It’s an upcoming horror film, which is the subject matter of this website. However, I will try to get my life up, whatever the hell that means.

        • Brett Janovich

          lol michael i wonder what get yo life up means aswell lol

    • MySelfDestruct

      Raping children including a child in his own film is not a “political” story. It could well happen again if he is allowed to direct another film. Hopefully if this happens, they will not allow children on the set. I say this as a fan of the first 2 films but turning a blind eye to these things is not the way to go.

      • Michael Dooney

        I agree with your point about children being on the set and I didn’t intend to imply that child rape itself is a political issue. I would hope that we would all have a consensus on that regardless of our political inclinations. However, it inevitably led to the discussion of two broader issues: 1. Should individuals be allowed to return to their careers after committing terrible acts? and, more relevantly, 2. What is the role of the media in separating art from the artist? My point is that I have zero interest in having these points addressed on this particular site. I come here to hear about upcoming movies and bullshit with fellow fans about them. I go to regular news websites to learn about and discuss the real-life horrors and issues of the world. I think that the crux of the editor’s comments is to determine if we, as the readers of the site, want to keep those journalistic realms separate. I vote yes. If anyone disagrees on that point, fine. I hope the editor takes it all into account and goes with the consensus. But I am growing tired of having my point distorted into some kind of apathy toward child rape as a legitimate issue.

        • Brett Janovich

          victor hasnt raped anyone sin ce 1989 so hes actually doing better now.

      • daughterofSatan

        Salva didn’t rape the kid. He gave the kid oral sex.

    • Meisha’s Taint

      I love how in a story about child rape you some how make yourself the victim because you have to read stuff. You won us over bro we no longer are concerned about child molestation now we all want to make sure you get to read only what you want to read on your little horror websites because that’s what’s truly important here right???

      • Michael Dooney

        The story, titled “The Third ‘Jeepers Creepers’ is Currently in Pre-production,” is not about child rape. The rest of your point, if it can be called that, is just a straw man argument.

        • Meisha’s Taint

          EVERY story about Jeepers Creepers and Victor Salva is about child rape

          • Brett Janovich

            no it is not. the while point is about being told about the film not what victors done in his fucking past thats not important anyore its old fucking news

          • BaronMarx

            Not sure if pairing the name Meisha’s Taint with a profile pic of a little girl is the way to go for someone starting a revolution in the comments section of a horror movie news story.

    • Meisha’s Taint

      What a surprise a football fan doesn’t care about rape???? SHOCKING!!

      Your priorities are a fuckin joke Mickael

      Try a kid friendly website maybe it’s more your speed

      • Michael Dooney

        Your inability to have a rational and logical debate is a joke. Try responding to my actual points rather than distorting them and responding to the distortion. Otherwise, bother somebody else with your borderline illiterate ranting.

        • Meisha’s Taint

          You are trying to ignore an entire argument and asking a website and EVERY SINGLE PERSON on here who comments on here to forever ignore what Victor Salva has done because YOU don’t want to read about it???

          You think pretty highly of yourself don’t you?

          No one is backing you up here Mike

          You don’t get tell us what we get to talk about on here,

          Go fuck yourself Mike.

          • Michael Dooney

  • squatting neville

    I like the JC films and am really looking forward to learning the history of the monster.
    I can compartmentalise. Besides, he served his time. Punishment paid. That’s how the justice system works. No point in being all ‘pitchforks and torches’ about it. It won’t change anything. If you can’t accept it, form your own micro-nation and make your own laws for it.

    • Word!

    • DJV1985

      Seriously that’s your response? I mean seriously? So because he served his time then we should ignore the damage he has done to the kid he raped? So going by that logic any other pedo who has raped should be let out of prison and their crimes just put in the past and ignored. I mean, look no disrespect or anything but that is just stupid.

      Imagine what kind of damage that’d do to you as a child. Imagine having someone force themselves onto you and then a few years later is making a ton of money and people are like “yh but he went to prison so move on”. Sorry but I couldn’t disagree more.

      • squatting neville

        You’re welcome to disagree. Think what you like. It won’t change anything.

      • Brett Janovich

        DJ he hasnt raped anyone after his release from prison hes actually gotten better so for u to sthink hes still out there doing shit is fucked uo when he hasnt otherwise itd be in the news again which hasnt and plus hes a director so papparazzi follows him so what you say is mressed up.

        • DJV1985

          I haven’t said he has done anything since leaving Prison. He has raped a young boy, no matter how long he serves in prison he is still and will always be a child rapist and yes that is the same for any other crime, although as with most people child rape is pretty much the worst crime you can do that isn’t murder. And yes he is a director and paparazzi do follow them but where were they before? Paparazzi very rarely follow directors these days unless they are mega famous ones.

          My annoyance in this and mostly for personal reasons maybe clouding my judgement, is that people are forgetting the boy who was raped. Because he has served his time it seems to be that everyone is willing to forget what he did or at least move on but this boy cannot move on, imagine what it would be like to have someone force themselves onto you. He raped a child, he should be punished and not be given any chance to be around children of that age or anyone who might be in danger. It seems that a lot of people today are so willing to ignore the history of this man and that is a scary fact. He raped a child, that child will have to live with the mental scares for the rest of his life while he is off making millions as a director.

          Then again it’s Hollywood and if rumours are true it’s full of pedophiles and the like so I’m not surprised at all.

    • Meisha’s Taint

      You are one suck fuck. STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM CHILDREN

      Brad Fuller: “Oh Um…We’ll film in the Summer! January 2018 release!”
      Lol. Friday is so not happening.

      • Francesco Falciani

        yeaaa. maybe u r right. if it won’t match the october date it won’t match any other date ’cause rights will go back to Warner in 2018.

  • JD Gillam

    I don’t think for one second that anyone would condone Salva’s past actions, but consider this.
    A production of this size employs a lot of talented people, from actors and camera-men to special effects and costume designers.
    Are we, as a horror loving community, really saying that we don’t want this film because of his actions?
    Of course, it would be no issue at all if he was not involved in the production, but he is. Is the severity of the crime relevant to what we are prepared to forgive?
    For example, there are celebrities out there that have killed (let’s use Vince Neill as a prime example, as he ended up being the reason a talented musician died after drink driving) and yet we have forgiven them and partaken of their output again.
    Yes, he is a convicted paedophile, but has he not paid his debt to society?
    If he had continued to be caught doing the same things, I get it.
    I’m sickened by what he did, but boycotting a production that could mean a paycheque for plenty of talented people that could use this as a springboard to a great career that we watch grow and grow is a bit non-sensical to me.
    Plus, if the first two got made, then this will be anyway.

    I enjoyed the first two, but must admit when I heard about what he had done then my mind started making comparisons with the Creeper himself.

    If I’m not aware of certain facts about all of this, then I apologise, just offering my tuppence worth and I fully appreciate that everyone is entitled to an opinion.

    • The Fucked Up

      Valid points if it were anything but a pedophile. As far as I’m concerned there is 1 single unforgiveable act in the universe, that can never be forgiven or redeemed by any amount of good work, and that’s child abuse.
      How this wretch can be allowed to live and work in a position that gives it power over others in any capacity is completely beyond me.

    • SpacemanSpliffz

      dude is a kiddy diddler. no fucking thanks man, i don’t care who is attached – as long as the director is a pedo i won’t support this flick in any way, and neither should you

      • Brett Janovich

        he was a pedo in 1989 but not anymore he hasnt done nothing wroong after his release from prison so u need to let it go

    • ScriptGiverTJ

      The crew is getting paid regardless. I’m not adding to the fat fucks residuals/backend etc by seeing this mess.

  • Niles Danish

    Hope this one doesn’t have any young boys in it.

  • The Drucifer

    Hard to sepearate art from artist when the man seems to to be making money off of films about his own Id. The Creeper is Salva; a creature who sniffs out the parts of (primarily) young men to ingest. No need to read between the lines

    • I agree with your statement, yet I also view The Creeper as a vile monster. That is how he is presented, no? Perhaps it’s Salva’s way of working out his shame or even demonizing himself. Just a thought.

  • Saltoner

    If we based our entertainment/viewing habits on the squeaky clean image of its creator(s), then guess what… We wouldn’t be watching anything, because no one is pure and no one has a closet free of skeletons. We watch, enjoy and encourage others to watch stuff made by racists, wife beaters, child molesters, etc. The only thing I hope is that they’e been punished, paid their dues and are a better person for it. I hope!

    • Ash Housewares

      I agree that no one is “squeaky clean.” But raping a child (and filming it..while making a film..on the set of the film) are kinda in a league of their own. But go ahead. Enjoy the show.

      • Saltoner

        Thank you. I will enjoy.

    • Meisha’s Taint

      You think if someone rapes a child they are a better person because of it as long as they did some amount of jail time?

      Shame on your parents for raising you so poorly you are an absolute monster of a human being you have some serious, serious problems

      • Saltoner

        Thank you! That’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me! Also, FUCK YOU loser! Attack me, I don’t give a shit, attack my parents, better sleep with one eye open…

    don’t give a fuck about this, will not support a child rapists work, period. shame on you bd, you should be ignoring this trash too

  • Chris B

    If an online article about one movie involves the director’s past crimes, then shouldn’t all movie articles present that at Bloody Disgusting if one is being fair? Or maybe that should not be included for any movie, right?

  • Brian

    • Brett Janovich

      let wat he did go

      • Brian

        I have two kids. Trust me this boils my blood. The Creeper has got to be my fav horror character. They should replace the director

  • Mark Lepine

    I guess all you guys should also ban watching Disney films. They hired Salva to direct Powder after his conviction.

    • This.

    • or stop watching Francis Ford Coppola films. He’s a good friend of Salva and produced a couple of his flicks.

      • ScriptGiverTJ

        Maybe people do that too. Crazy right?

    • Ash Housewares

      They claim that they didn’t know about the offence when “Powder” was in production. Can’t help but ask, is Mark Lepine your real name? If so, I apologize for asking. It’s just that there’s an infamous “Mark Lepine” in Canada. I’m sure it’s just coincidence so I apologize again, if so.

      • Meisha’s Taint

        But after they did find out they hired people to follow him around and make sure he didn’t rape any one on the cast. NO JOKE

      • Saltoner

        Of course they knew! You don’t think Disney does BG checks on EVERYONE before even looking at them? Stop being so naive people. Disney is also the largest supplier of pornography in the land. As my friend Taint says… NO JOKE.

  • cduns

    Never watched any JC movies before but now strangers comments are making me feel like I shouldn’t : /

  • plutohiller

    It’s a pretty simple decision. Bootleg the movie and you’re not supporting anyone involved. (bootlegging is a crime and I don’t condone it, except maybe in a case like this) I personally would never pay to support Salva, even considering everyone else involved in the production. I wouldn’t even associate with the guy if I was in the film business. It’s really disturbing to see how Gibson was black listed for his drunken rants, but Polanski and Salva have no problem getting back to work after child exploitation crimes. For those using the teacher examples, I thought you might be interested in this report. If you have kids, it’s pretty scary. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/12/22/teachers-who-sexually-abuse-students-still-find-classroom-jobs/95346790/

    • Meisha’s Taint

      I agree!

      LET’S MAKE THIS THE MOST STOLEN MOVIE IN HORROR MOVIE HISTORY!!!!

      I here by promise to never pay for this movie and do everything I possibly can to make sure other people do no have to pay for it as well. I hope these film makers take a bath things have changed we will not support this

      • Brett Janovich

        When i first heard about Victor Salva being a convicted pedophile, I was very shocked by it. I didn’t know he was, I Love the jeepers creepers franchise but I honestly don’t believe that there’s anything in the film that says anything about a pedophile or his past, If you watch the film you can clearly see it’s a about a creature who kills and eats peoples lungs and whatever it needs to stay alive. Nothing in the film has pedophile refrences at all. I studied the films by watching them over and over again, But i honestly can’t see the pedo refrences that people claim are in the films. I know hes’s a pedo, I know what he did in 1989 was fucked up and wrong I went through the samething that nathan winters went through. But I wont prtest over victor salva to get him to stop making films because one he did do his time, Nobody has the right to keep slamming him even today cuz one this happened in 1989 he did his time and I know victor regrets what he did everyday which is why jeepers creepers has no pedo refrences in it whatsoever the only film i know that does would be the human centipede that films deffenetly has pedo refrences in it, and people need to just let what victor did go, cuz when u hold onto a past or anything bad that you’ve went through in ur life and u keep holding onto. It will consume you, it will drive you insane and eventually fuck you up. Anyone will tell you this, And i honestly cant lie is especially about what i’m saying sure victor smiled in his mugshot who cares its old news nothing new, Stop holding onto the past let it all go. i bet nathan has let it all go as well cuz it was along time ago. its better to let it go then hold onto the past holding onto a past will make u insane and ruin your life it wont make it better. Let him make the film For the fans of the jeepers creepers franchise hes the only one that can make it good in his own way everyone who’s worked with victor knows about his past even hollywood knows but they forgave him because forgiveness means your willing to let it all go holding onto a past is holding a grudge nobody should hold a grudge to his past anymore its a new decade its 2017 now its time to move on and let it go everyone will tell you to let it go cuz that’s the right thing to do hen holding onto some 1989 case its not 1989 anymore he did his time he knows right from wrong now hes not doing what he did in 1989 anymore hes actually doing good now and wont let what he did hold him back hes forgiven himself he wants people to move on from the past hes not the same person he was in 1989 hes a whole different person now and it is time to stop slam shamming him for his past let it all go just let it all go and let him work on his film its his film not anyone else’s and every adult who’s told there kids let there pasts go and forgive someone for what they’ve done to them in there past when there teens and what happened to them was back in there childhood or happened to them in there teen years and it took years to get over eventualy they have to get over what happened to them and move on. and what people are holding onto today happened in 1989 and in in 2000- now people aren’t letting it go when clearly it happened years ago it is time to move on you cant keep holding onto the past anymore. cuz its fucked when parents tell there sons/daughters when theyre adults or whatever whenever they were sexually assaulted or whatever and the son/daughter hasnt moved on yet finally lets it all go and the parent says let it go just let it goand they dont talk abut it and let it bringem down anymore pple let things go when theyre ready im pretty sure nathan let it all go and wont let it bother him anymore cuz really its fucked up that nobodys letting this shit go its all old news its 2017 not 1989 let it go just let it go. cuz really people dont need to know this anymore when its old news everyone knows what hes done but he did his time hes a new person now that should tell you hey this persons actually changed for the better and actually wanted to change from what he was in prison and the crime he did to who he is now a person who has changed ad is not the person he was back then. he hasnt done a pedophilic thing in fucking years after he was in prison and released from it hes a changed man who wanted to change and for that its a good thing he changed and im glad he did change otherwise hed be doing the shit he did every day and thif he did that then that shows u he didnt change but he has changed forgive what hes done stop dwelling on his past stop slam shaming him for what he did cuz its getting old and ridiculous and im not the only one who agrees that this is getting old cuz its really getting annoying nobody wants to hear this every single day it is time to move on and not dwell on the past anymore so do the right thing and move on and stop digging up the past cuz otherwise your holding a grudge and eventually that grudge will consume you and thats a bad thing.

  • Brad, do an interview with Salva!

    • Meisha’s Taint

      That would be the first attempt at honest journalism of this site that would be amazing to hear that piece of shit’s side of the story

      • Sykes

        If your boy was raped would you still read that interview?

  • Comeback Robert

    I obviously don’t condone the man’s actions but the dude already went to prison for it. He did his time for the crime so now as a civilization at what point do we draw the line and say he got what he deserved and move on from something that happend many years ago. Again I don’t condone his actions I just wanna see this film and I hope this topic doesn’t get brought up too much before the film’s completion

    • Meisha’s Taint

      You should be ashamed of yourself you think you can rape a child and all is forgiven????

      You are an awful human being who’s moral compass is so fuckin broken I wouldn’t let you 100,000 feet from me or my family. I wish nothing but the absolute worst for you

      • Mamet006

        Yes. That Robert guy is the real awful human being and you’re just a magical beacon of sunshine. And by wishing the absolute worst for him you would be wishing for it would appear his children to be molested. So check out your moral compass Missy who wants people’s children to be molested. Again. You’re a real beacon of sunshine on this Earth. You’re moral compass is always pointing north. Keep wishing the worst upon people. I’m sure it keeps you so happy.

        • Meisha’s Taint

          You are one sic puppy to some how come up with that after reading what I wrote. You are fuckin nuts you haven’t said anything of value other than make up some crazy shit in your ahead and get mad at me for the crazy stuff you just made up in your head. You are fuckin nuts

          • Mamet006

            You said you desired that that man’s kids be molested. Not me. Be angry at yourself.

          • Brett Janovich

            MEISHA HERES WHAT YOU SAID

            “You are an awful human being who’s moral compass is so fuckin broken I wouldn’t let you 100,000 feet from me or my family. I wish nothing but the absolute worst for you”

            THATS HOW FUCKED THAT STATEMENT IS YOU WISHED THE ABSOLUTE WORST FOR SOMEONE EVEN VICTOR SO BY THAT YOUR WISHING THAT HIS KIDS AND EVERYONE HE KNOWS TO GET RAPED OR KILLED OR ANYTHING BAD YOU REALLY NEED HELP MEISHA CUZ TRUE HUMAN BEINGS FORGIVE WHICH IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

      • Trent Owens

        you talk about broken Moral Compass then go on to show how broken yours is by wishing evil upon someone who to your knowledge has done absolutely nothing wrong but to disagree with you. so hows that campus of yours doing there?

      • Will Schuster

        You are on a horror film site. Get over yourself. It’s reactions like this which makes the world hate the U.S.

      • Brett Janovich

        ACTUALLY HES A TRUES HUMAN BEING THEN YOU ARE MEISHA TRUE HUMAN BEINGS FORGIVE BUT HOLDING A FUCKING GRUDGE IS NOT OK HELL I WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED AT AGE 16 MY RAPIST GOT 6 FUCKING YEARS WHEN ME AND MY MOM WENT TO COURT IN 2014 WHEN THEY SENTENCED HIM SO YEA IM NOT MAD THAT HE GOT 6 YEARS IM NOT MAD IF HE WAS IN THERE LONGER BUT I WONT LET IT BRING ME DOWN CUZ ITS THE PAST I WONT DWELL ON IT CUZ TO ME VICTOR DID HIS TIME HE DOESNT DESERVE TO BE SLAMMED SHAMED EVERY GOD DAMN TIME WHEN HE HASNT DONE ANYTHING WRONG WHEN THEY RELEASED HM FROM PRISON SO LET IT GO.

      • BaronMarx

        Not sure if pairing the name Meisha’s Taint with a profile pic of a little girl is the way to go for someone starting a revolution on the comments section of a horror movie news story.

  • Khy

    Someone actually posted this on another site. I was appalled.

    “I’m slightly older than 12 but I’ll suck his dick for a role in jeepers creepers 3!”
    No fucking words. Rape culture is strong.

    • Mouth agape emoji…that is…crazy.

    • Mamet006

      Wow. Someone is without a sense humor.

      • Meisha’s Taint

        Do you find child rape funny?

        • Mamet006

          No I don’t. I find jokes about it funny though. Lemme hold your hand and guide your brain. Joke about rape doesn’t equal rape is a joke. Got it? Not very complicated. Making a joke about a subject isn’t saying that the subject is a joke.

          • Meisha’s Taint

            Wow. Someone is without a sense humor

          • Mamet006

            Don’t rape your kids on the way out.

          • Meisha’s Taint

            Wow. Someone is without a sense humor

    • Meisha’s Taint

      Rape culture has won

      • Mamet006

        Well with people like you battling against it, why is it a surprise they won?

    Wow it’s been several years and nothing then Trump a child rapist gets in the white and house and all of a sudden hiring a known child rapists is all of a sudden OK????

    This is going to get really fucking ugly folks no decent human being is going to let this happen. Looks like it’s time to rally up the troops, light the torches and send a fuckin message guys

  • wrestling fan 36

    FINALLY!!!!! Been waiting for Jc3 forever and what Salva did was messed up but he did his time so his work should not get blackballed or suffer. CAN’T WAIT to see the creeper do his thing again

    • Meisha’s Taint

      If your boy was raped would you still watch his film?

      • wrestling fan 36

        I do not have kids so…….plus playing that shoulda,woulda game is just stupid cuz nobody knows what they would do until that situation comes up. So right now with me not having kids i can not wait to see JC3

      • Frank Gambino

        Yes. I would

  • Seal Clubber

    JC 1 and 2 were both horrible movies. Generic, low effort horror. Teens and a monster …. who could ever think that up ??

    I will 100% NOT be watching this …. not just because the creator is obviously a horrible human but because his “art” sucks ….. there are too many great horror movies out there that I haven’t the time to watch to spend time on anything JC related.

  • Matt Gleason

    Story sounds good… will watch. I liked the first two quite a bit. Fun, gruesome, totally unrealistic but very entertaining.

    • gabriel

      yeah, I’m surprised he said JP2 was a box office hit though. I thought that movie lasted 2 weeks in theaters. Anyway, I love both of them too.

      • It made $35.6 million domestically. Not stellar, but it had a budget of $17 million so it was a success.

  • Meisha’s Taint

    Please let us know where exactly they are filming when you know

  • Meisha’s Taint

    This shit is going to get real ugly this film will not get made

  • Mark Stuart

    Who cares what he did? All that matters is there’s going to be another jeepers creepers.Its a bit disappointing though that its not going to be set 23 years later.why bother having it set in the same timeline as the first two? Would have been much better to have the characters come back as older.

    • Radb707

      My question is….HOW is it set in the same timeline of the first two considering it was established the second took place days after the first AND showed us the last day of the feeding frenzy. If that showed us the final day of his feeding frenzy, and this sequel is supposed to show us the final day…then…wtf is going on

      • Brett Janovich

        dont u understand the films the first was the last day the second was the lsast day now the third is the last day every 23years on the last day it gets to feed every 23 spring on the last day thats what the meaning is every 23years in spring on the last day it gets to eat it will keep coming back u cant kill it theyve tried shooting it wont work they even stabbed it and it didnt work theyve tried everything it didnt work it keeps coming back.

  • Rob Kester

    I won’t pay to see this while Salva makes any money from it? Huge Bummer because I loved the first one. I didn’t know anything about him then.

  • Sykes

    I tend to find that the people who scream loudest about the crimes of others have done some pretty effed up crap of their own.

    Salva was convicted and did his time. Justice, as our society currently labels it, was done. If someone wants to hold it against him, that’s up to them. They shouldn’t go see his film. I won’t judge them for doing so.

  • Halloween_Vic

    I’m excited about the film to be honest because I’m a huge fan of the first 2. I’m not watching it to support that nasty prick Salva, I’m watching the film as I stated for enjoying the first 2 and simply being a fan of the films themselves.

  • sliceanddice

    number 2 was a total number 2 – badoom-tsh

  • SKILZS2000

    I’m not getting my hopes up. How long have we been waiting for a third now?

  • Rob

    Silva is a piece of shit, no question, and as far as the whole “He did his time.” argument, He only did 18 months for molesting a kid. Meanwhile, his victim has to live with this forever. If anything, its yet another example of how messed up our legal system is.

    But that’s a different argument. While I personally find SIlva repulsive, by the law of the land he is free and clear to find employment as he sees fit. As long as there aren’t any children on set or within the distance he must keep from them and places children congregate, studios are free to hire him.

    While the years have changed my opinion on our legal system, with me leaning more towards a system build around rehabilitation rather than punishment, I still find Silva disgusting. His work following his conviction still involved the abuse and brutalization of underage/teenage children (Mostly boys) and I personally see the Creeper as an imprint of Silva himself, leading me to avoid his work like the plague.

    It’s similar to how I feel about Roman Polanskl, I don’t care how much people rave about how amazing your work is, you molested a kid. You’re forever a piece of shit and I won’t be partaking in your work.

    These are my personal impressions mind you. If others wish to support his bullshit, then that’s their decision and right to do so.

  • Radb707

    You know, Bryan Singer was accused of molesting kids TWICE and you people are still watching his movies. Just saying. And how is this supposed to take place on the last day of the feeding frenzy when JP2 took place on the last day of the feeding frenzy. Wtf.

    • Brett Janovich

      the third takes places after the 2nd

    • Rob

      That’s a good point, but be careful with the whole “You people” argument because not all people do support him. Also, just playing devils advocate, he was ACCUSED, not convicted. Silva was tried and convicted.

  • Justin Zerbel

    Why can’t this damn film follow the events of the 2nd one where at the end of the 2nd film the creeper is hung on the wall with Taggart sitting in his chair with his gun machine poker thingy pointed right at the creeper. Why can’t the 3rd film follow this scene

  • Justin Zerbel

    I think what it means by the last day this time is that the film will take place 23 years later but on the last day of the feeding frenzy just like the 2nd one. I wished they would have stuck with the original Damn script with Trish, her son,

  • John Doggett

    The Third ‘Jeepers Creepers’ is Currently in Pre-production (Exclusive) – Brad Miska

    Great news, if it actually happens. The Jeepers Creepers movies aren’t particularly original, but, they are entertaining pulp horror. Knowing the history of Silva, it might be easy to imagine the lascivious origins of his monster, but, really, it’s just another Hollywood cookie-cutter creature. As for the 1988 conviction of Silva, it’s good that we’re reminded of it, but, unless a potential viewer is determined to boycott, what difference does it make almost thirty years later? As a society, we must either be committed to the idea of punishment and rehabilitation, or, simply bring back lynch mobs and public stoning. I’m sure the studios, or, their bonding agents will ensure Silva does not have access to under aged actors on the set. Silva’s involvement in a third Jeepers Creepers installment will not affect my decision to see the film.

  • I wish Salva wasn’t going to benefit from this project. But I am interested in the movie and the actors. I don’t like that it looks like we support Salva for watching the film. I don’t support him. But I want to see the movie for the story and the actors. They aren’t him or his past.

    • Erik Hauk

      But he paid for his crime and has rehabilitated himself with no similar or any crimes for that matter, since the initial incident. So…yeah.
