Even after all of the controversy surrounding its director, Victor Salva, horror fans are still excited about Jeepers Creepers III.
While you, like many others, might have missed the movie in theaters (it was only shown for one day). But don’t fret. According to reports, Jeepers Creepers III will be making its television debut in just a couple of weeks. It is being said that the movie will air on the Syfy channel on October 28th, just in time for Halloween.
The third installment of the franchise stars Brandon Smith, Meg Foster, Gina Philips, Stan Shaw, Ray Wise, and Jonathan Breck who will reprise his role as the Creeper.

Jeepers Creepers III centers on a sergeant and his task force who embark “on a mission to destroy the Creepers on its last day of feeding. The Creeper soon fights back when they get close to discovering its mysterious and dark origins.”
In case you haven’t heard about Victor Salva’s past, let me fill you in. Salva was convicted for the sexual assault of a 12-year-old boy, Nathan Winters who starred in Salva’s film Clownhouse and who Salva spent years grooming. He was also charged with the possession of child pornography due to the fact that he recorded the sexual assaults in 1988. He served just 18 months of his three-year sentence. Since the news came out about his past people have protested, boycotted and shared petitions to stop the Jeepers Creepers films from being shown to try to prevent Salva from profiting from the film.

It’s a little disturbing that in Jeepers Creepers III one of the young characters is a victim of incestual sexual abuse with other characters defending the actions of her abuser who says, “Can you blame me though? I mean look at her. The heart wants what it wants, am I right?” The line has since been removed from the theatrical cut but was in the original version that several sites have reviewed. It’s a bit disgusting, isn’t it?
Nathan Forrest Winters is currently working on a documentary about the experience titled The Babysitter, directed by Connar Frazier. He also has a speaking tour where he works to raise awareness for children like he was, victims of sexual abuse.
