For around a decade now, Victor Salva has been trying his best to make a second sequel for the JEEPERS CREEPERS franchise. Many fans are choosing to boycott the film due to Salva’s criminal history, while other fans feel that it is a major let down that it has been taking so long for the next JEEPERS CREEPERS entry to finally arrive. It seems that those threats of protest are being heard.
JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 was set to make it’s world premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater in LA. This event was to feature guests from all three films with Q&A fun taking place. It was to have been a double feature of the first and third films. The hype was high as the screening quickly sold out. Then TCL made the decision to cancel the screening as there were heavy amounts of threats about protesting the event.
TCL issued the following statement to those that purchased tickets to the screening:
“Dear Valued Customer,
We would like to inform you that due to events beyond our control, the screening event hosted by @Moviedude18 for “Jeepers Creepers and Jeepers Creepers 3” on Wednesday September 13, 2017 will no longer take place at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause your party. We have worked with Fandango to refund your purchase directly. You should see the refund in your account within the next few days. We would like to offer you free passes. You may redeem them at the box office upon your next visit by showing this email or we can mail them to you if you provide us with your mailing address.

Regardless of anything, the film will see a regular release in theaters at this point next month.
The official run time for JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 will be 1hr 40 minutes, or 100 minutes, and was given an R rating by the MPAA.
The first film was able to see great success in both theaters and on the home video releases. Plus the second film raked in $63 million across the globe with only a budget of $17 million. It comes as no surprise that fans would be begging for more. There have been several times when the production on JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 was to supposedly begin, with many setbacks along the way but things are rolling along well for the upcoming installment.
JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 stars Gina Phillips, Meg Foster, (pictured above) Stan Shaw, Jonathan Breck, Brandon Smith, Brandon Stacy, Stan Shaw, Chester Rushing, Ryan Moore, Patrick Thomas Cragin, Gabrielle Haugh, Justin Hall, Michael Papajohn, Megan Elizabeth Wright, Jason Bayle, Cade Burk, Joyce Giraud, Jordan Salloum, Don Yesso, David Davis, Casey Hendershot, Thomas Francis Murphy, and Carrie Lazar.
"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.
JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 will arrive into theaters September 26th.
