Horror Prequel Leatherface Unveils Two Terrifying Stills On The Eve Of Release; Plus Watch Eerie Clip

Halloween 2017 may belong to Jigsaw, or so Lionsgate would have you believe, but there’s another big-name horror flick ready to swoop into theaters.

Its name? Leatherface, a prequel movie coming by way of Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo. Initially released via DirecTV late last month, it’s fair to say that their Texas Chainsaw origin story hasn’t fared particularly well with critics – so far, at least – with our own Matt Donato labeling the spinoff a disappointment.

Nevertheless, with only two days standing between now and Leatherface‘s theatrical debut, the folks at Dread Central have conjured up two terrifying, blood-soaked stills in which our hapless cast begin to get acquainted with the demented Sawyer family. And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a nerve-racking clip to peruse. However, the question remains: Who will survive and, dare we say it, what will be left of them?

Jeepers Creepers 3 TV Premiere Locked In For Late October

Contentious horror threequel Jeepers Creepers 3 is coming to TV a lot sooner than you think, thanks to Syfy’s ongoing 31 Days of Halloween event.

Word comes by way of Dread Central, confirming that Victor Salva’s troubled and indeed long-in-development flick will swoop onto television on Saturday, October 28th at 9pm, before Syfy stages an encore showing on Sunday, October 29th at the earlier time of 7pm.

Since Jeepers Creepers 3 was first hatched, Salva’s follow-up has become the cinematic equivalent of a hot potato. Major theaters chains quickly distanced themselves from the project, restricting Jeepers Creepers 3 to one-night-only screenings back in September.

Of course, as I’m sure you’re well aware, Victor Salva’s criminal record is the sole source of controversy, given the filmmaker was convicted for sexual misconduct with a minor more than 10 years ago. His victim, Nathan Forrest Winters, has since issued

Syfy Plans To Host TV Premiere Of Jeepers Creepers 3 Later This Month

From Jigsaw to Leatherface to Amityville: The Awakening, this Halloween season will soon present horror fans with an embarrassment of riches as theaters across the globe begin hosting all sorts of cinematic ghosts and ghouls.

But if there’s one movie that was quietly shunned by distributors, it’s Jeepers Creepers 3 (for good reason, too, but more on that later). Yes, after years spent languishing on the brink of development, Victor Salva’s threequel faced another uphill battle when many of America’s major theater chains dropped it like a hot potato. Only a small handful of companies stood firm, leading to an exclusive one-night-only screening via Regal Theaters.

Such pent-up demand led to Jeepers Creepers 3 securing a second theatrical showing (October 4th), but other than that, the film’s distribution is about as limited as they come. Leave it to Syfy, then, to step in and secure JC3‘s TV premiere.

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

*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

Victor Salva Put a Child Molestation Joke in Jeepers Creepers 3
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

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

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” 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.

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.

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

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
