‘Jeepers Creepers’, Where’d You Get That Bad Third Movie?

29 September 2017 3:08 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

*before going into the review, let’s get the obvious out of the way: we at Age of the Nerd would like to take a moment to say we are fully aware of Victor Salva’s criminal history and the moral dilemma that is presented when discussing or financially supporting his movies.

The horror landscape has changed rather drastically in the sixteen years since controversy magnet Victor Salva first introduced slasher-starved audiences to “the Creeper” (Jonathan Breck) and his taste for body parts in the ‘Jeepers Creepers‘ franchise. Since then, there’s been the rise of the torture porn sub-genre and filmmakers like Eli Roth and Rob Zombie, the supernatural found footage genre, an obnoxious onslaught of inferior remakes (fingers shall be pointed specifically at The Wicker Man, When a Stranger Calls and Black Christmas) and a needed return to form thanks to filmmakers like James Wan, David Sandberg and Jennifer Kent. »

Victor Salva Put a Child Molestation Joke in Jeepers Creepers 3

29 September 2017 1:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Victor Salva, whose new movie Jeepers Creepers 3 debuted this week, was convicted of molesting a child actor in 1988 and now he's joking about it nearly 30 years later. Victor Salva was 30-years old in 1988 when he was sentenced to 3 years in prison for molesting the 12-year old star of his first movie, Clownhouse over the course of 6 years. Victor Salva was arrested on 11 counts of sexual abuse. Additionally, Salva filmed one of the encounters, which was shown in court and was also charged with possessing child pornography. At the help of some Hollywood friends, allegedly including Francis Ford Coppola, Salva only served 15 months of his 3-year sentence.

With such a sordid past, one would think that director Victor Salva would have hopefully learned his lesson, but as it turns out, he hasn't. While no scenes in the movie depict molestation, IGN reports that there is a joke included in »

‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ Director Victor Salva, Convicted Child Molester, Wrote Child Molestation Into New Film

29 September 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A mention of child molestation in “Jeepers Creepers 3” is drawing revulsion because the film’s writer and director, Victor Salva, was convicted of child molestation in 1988. The 59-year-old filmmaker was convicted in the molestation of Nathan Forrest Winters, an actor in his film “Clownhouse,” who was 12 at the time. Salva was also convicted of videotaping the sex act and of possessing commercial videotapes and child porn magazines. He served 15 months out of his three-year sentence. According to IndieWire, the third installment of the “Jeepers Creepers” franchise does not depict any child molestation, but does include a scene in which. »

Jeepers Creepers 3 Contains A Molestation Subplot, And Tries To Justify It

28 September 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I was recently asked to review Jeepers Creeper 3, the long-awaited third entry in the franchise. But, mysteriously for a horror film being released around Halloween, I just couldn’t find a screening. I looked high and low for one, but for some weird reason the studio seemed to be keeping a very tight lid on things. Could the film really be that bad? Were they trying to bury it? Was it simply not finished?

Maybe it’s because the director, Victor Salva, is a convicted pedophile who molested a twelve-year-old boy on the set of his film Clownhouse (*shudder*) and was caught in possession of child porn, which led to him being sentenced to three years in prison (of which he only served 15 months). And now that word has (once again) gotten out about this, screenings of Jeepers Creepers 3 are being threatened with demonstrations and boycotts.

Yeah. It’s probably that. »

‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ Director Victor Salva, A Convicted Pedophile, Wrote Molestation Into the Film

28 September 2017 6:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jeepers Creepers 3” hit theaters for one night only on September 26, and certain plot points are rubbing critics the wrong way given the criminal history of writer-director Victor Salva. The 59-year-old was convicted in 1988 of the sexual molestation of Nathan Forrest, the 12-year-old actor and star of his film “Clownhouse.” Salva videotaped the sexual act and was also convicted of possessing commercial videotapes and magazines containing child pornography.

Salva only served 15 months of his three-year sentence, and he somehow went on to have a career in Hollywood in the years that followed. Disney hired him to direct their supernatural drama “Powder,” and Salva found his greatest success with “Jeepers Creepers,” the 2001 horror film that spawned a franchise.

Series Veteran Jonathan Breck Reflects On What Makes Jeepers Creepers A Cult Phenomenon

27 September 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s going on 17 years since the original Jeepers Creepers took flight, when film fans were introduced to an all-new and downright terrifying horror icon in the form of The Creeper.

Initially conceived by series creator Victor Salva, The Creeper is a winged demon that feasts on human flesh every 23rd spring, and thanks to the recent launch of Jeepers Creepers 3, there’s another harvest on the cards. But while reflecting on the breakout success of Salva’s 2001 thriller, Creeper actor Jonathan Breck discussed the franchise’s lasting legacy in an exhaustive interview with IGN.

It’s a legacy that has undoubtedly been tainted by Victor Salva’s dubious past, after the contentious filmmaker served 15 months in state prison for sexual misconduct with a minor. And though his victim, Nathan Forrest Winters, has since issued a candid statement regarding the release of Jeepers Creepers 3, the horror threequel continues »

Jeepers Creepers 3 Review

26 September 2017 7:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Stop us if you’ve heard this one. A vaguely demonic creature emerges every 20-something years to terrorize, stalk and ultimately devour residents of a small town before returning to its slumber. Nope, we’re not talking about Pennywise, the freaky killer clown currently rocking the box office in director Andy Muschietti’s It. As horror fans will know, the same modus operandi applies just as equally to the Creeper, the boogeyman that headlined 2001 horror hit Jeepers Creepers and its 2003 sequel. Now, writer/director Victor Salva and actor Jonathan Breck – who donned the hat and trenchcoat as the Creeper in Salva’s previous two entries – aim to resurrect the character once again with Jeepers Creepers 3.

Set between its predecessors, this installment attempts to recontextualize those events while introducing new characters that have been affected by the Creeper’s rampage. While Brandon Smith reprises his role as Sergeant Tubbs from the first film, »

Salva Already Plotting Jeepers Creepers 4; Mooted Sequel Would Take Things In A “Whole New Direction”

26 September 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Unlike most other horror threequels, Jeepers Creepers 3 bucks tradition by situating its story between the events of Jeepers Creepers 1 and 2, and though it’s taken an awful long time to take flight, Victor Salva’s nightmarish vision is about to slither onto the silver screen.

But what of the franchise’s future? A Jeepers Creepers 4 has already been pitched before, when it was revealed back in May that Salva had been quietly plotting a new continuation in the Creeper saga. That’s something that series mainstay Jonathan Breck (The Creeper) echoed during an exhaustive interview with IGN, one that touched on everything from make-up and prosthetics to Salva’s criminal record. For the record: Breck is firmly of the belief that the contentious filmmaker deserves a second chance.

As for a potential fourth film, it’s not off the table:

Yeah, if we’re lucky enough to have it happen. »

Jeepers Creepers 3 Star Jonathan Breck Believes Victor Salva Deserves A “Second Chance”

26 September 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Victor Salva has caused quite the stir going into the release of Jeepers Creepers 3. And that’s putting it mildly.

Now teetering on the verge of its contentious theatrical debut, the film has sparked heated debate across the four corners of the Internet, with horror fans essentially deliberating the fate of Salva’s latest venture. On the one hand, there are those out there who plan to vote with their wallet and forego Jeepers Creepers 3 entirely – hence those threats of protesting late last month – while others are of the belief that Victor Salva deserves a second chance despite his dubious past.

In case you’re not in the know: the filmmaker was accused of sexual misconduct with a minor almost two decades ago, and served 15 months in state prison. Also of note, his victim, Nathan Forrest Winters, has since issued a statement to say that it’s really up »

Three Terrifying Clips For Jeepers Creepers 3 Summon A Dormant Evil

25 September 2017 1:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the eve of release, American Zoetrope and Myriad Pictures have conjured up a trio of terrifying clips for Jeepers Creepers 3, the long-in-development horror flick that’s coming by way of Victor Salva. And therein lies the source of controversy.

Truth be told, the sequel known as Ravenous will soon face another uphill battle if it’s to really attract a mass audience. Jeepers Creepers has always been celebrated as a cult franchise with its own quirks and spooky delights, but the threequel has been a big point of contention amongst horror fans, mostly due to Salva’s heinous crime, for which he served 15 months in state prison. For the record, his victim, Nathan Forrest Winters, has since issued a statement to say that it’s really up to the audience whether they want to catch The Creeper’s resurrection on the silver screen.

Perhaps more than any other horror film in recent memory, »

The Creeper is back with a bloody vengeance. A third film in the Jeepers Creepers franchise is coming. On September 26th in select cities the film will be playing up on the big screens, and from early ticket sales it looks as if fans are ready to take a look at what the Creeper has been up to.

Gina Phillips will reprise her role as Trish Jenner, from the first film. Phillips will have a cameo in the film.

The plot of the film will follow a disbelieving Sgt. Tubb’s  (Brandon Smith ), who set’s up a task force to hunt the Creeper after the events of the first film. Terror ensues as the Creeper fights back. »

Jeepers Creepers 3 Trailer #2 Has the Creeper Back on the Hunt

15 September 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Screen Media Films has released a new trailer for Jeepers Creepers 3, which will get a one-night-only theatrical release from Fathom Events in theaters nationwide September 26. This trailer is a full minute longer than the first trailer that dropped two weeks ago, giving fans a better look at the iconic Creeper (Jonathan Breck), and those in the small town who band together to put an end to the Creeper's reign of terror once and for all. While we still have a few weeks left until this special event, there has already been plenty of controversy swirling around the movie.

Even before production began, we reported last March that the Jeepers Creepers 3 production was being forced to move, just before the production was supposed to begin in Canada. The production shift was forced by The Canadian Performers Union, which stopped a casting call from going out for the film, once the union »

International Jeepers Creepers 3 Trailer Brings The Scares

15 September 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is there a more contentious horror film than Jeepers Creepers 3?

Victor Salva’s long-in-development threequel was first hatched in 2006, and has been dogged by production woes and setbacks ever since. And that’s before you factor Salva’s dubious past into the equation. In short: the filmmaker was accused of sexual misconduct with a minor almost two decades ago, and served 15 months in state prison. His victim, Nathan Forrest Winters, has since come out to say that it’s really up to the viewer whether they choose to support Jeepers Creepers 3. You can read his full, candid statement here.

As for the film itself, it’s now on the verge of its limited theatrical release, and an international trailer has clawed its way online to prove it. Embedded above, today brings forth an extended peek at The Creeper, which is about to begin its bloodthirsty harvest. Not unlike the Pennywise of Stephen King’s It, »
