Jeepers Creepers Reborn

Get ready to cancel your summer vacation plans because the Creeper is back on the hunt. The new trailer for Jeepers Creepers Reborn has arrived!

After 2017’s Jeepers Creepers 3 one can be forgiven for thinking Hollywood would be ready to let the Creeper lay dormant. The film, directed by disgraced filmmaker Victor Salva was far from a critical or commercial success. But that hasn’t stopped Screen Media from greenlighting another outing. And today, the trailer for Jeepers Creepers Reborn has arrived online and it reveals that the Creeper’s feasting on human flesh is far from over. His appetite must be insatiable! Hide behind the sofa and hit play on the trailer below.

SYNOPSIS 

Jeepers Creepers Reborn unfolds as the Horror Hound Festival holds its first ever event in Louisiana, where it attracts hundreds of geeks, freaks and die-hard horror fans from far and wide. Among them is fanboy Chase and his girlfriend Laine, who is forced to come along for the ride. But as the event approaches, Laine begins to experience unexplained premonitions and disturbing visions associated with the town’s past, and in particular, local legend/urban myth The Creeper. As the festival arrives and the blood-soaked entertainment builds to a frenzy, Laine believes that something unearthly has been summoned…and that she is at the center of it.

THE CAST

Jeepers Creepers: Reborn is directed by Timo Vuorensola who moved quickly to replace long-time Creeper actor Jonathan Breck with Jarreau Benjamin. Breck portrayed the Creeper in all three of the original movies, but with a new direction to be forged, Breck’s tenure as the Creeper is well and truly over. Other additions to the cast include Imran Adams, Sydney Craven, Ocean Navarro, Peter Brooke, and Gabriel Freilich.

RELEASE

Horror fans hoping to catch the Creeper on the big screen will have to move fast. Screen Media will release the sequel for an exclusive three-night event running September 19 through 21. So you’re going to have to get in early to catch the feast on the biggest screen you can find. Assuming you’re ready to cram into a theatre for another round of gruesome horror.

Personally, I feel the movie looks like a tired attempt to breathe new life into a faltering franchise. Sadly, the original formula has now been diluted to an extent where the Creeper has lost much of its edge. And the need to slip into teen slasher territory betrays the last act of a desperate studio. Whether or not Jeepers Creepers Reborn can make a killing at the box office remains to be seen. But sadly, on the strength of this trailer, I wouldn’t be surprised to find it in the bargain bin within weeks of release. But I’ve been wrong before.

Will you be cramming into a theatre to check out the Creeper’s latest banquet? Or has the franchise run its course? Sound off below.
