Hey guys! I’m glad to be back writing for the recently resurrected movie blog again. While John and Doug are in San Francisco, I thought I’d get the ball rolling with news posts and get you guys caught up with your movie news routine. :) (Yes, I have to start with a horror post. It’s just expected at this point!)
Last week it was announced that ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ was indeed going into production, and that Victor Salva (writer/director of the previous installments) has in fact signed on to write and direct the third installment.
Moviehole gives us this: Rumours that a “Jeepers Creepers 3” is happening, and possibly going to direct to DVD, have been confirmed by the abovementioned interweb portals. Writing and Directing is Victor Salva-previously rumoured to only be writing-helmer of the original frightfest.
Every time there’s Jeepers Creepers news, I always feel excited and guilty at the same time. I find it hard to support Victor Salva, (who was a convicted child molester) and it always feel weird to promote his movies since finding out about his disgusting past. Although, just like how I feel about Michael Jackson, I can’t deny the fact the man is talented when it comes to what he does. (Which pisses me off even more!)
I enjoyed the original ‘Jeepers Creepers’ very much, but the sequel, although well shot, was not an enjoyable film at all. (Except when it came down to watching and making fun of the very “heterosexual” football players tan on the bus or pee together in a field)
I think the best thing to do is to make this a direct to DVD sequel. (Since direct to DVD horror sequels seem to be flourishing right now) However, considering how well the second film did at the box office, I would expect seeing a theatrical release of this unnecessary sequel.
What are your thoughts on this matter?
