Jeepers Creepers 3 (2017)
Director: Victor Salva
Main Stars: Stan Shaw, Gabrielle Haugh, Brandon Smith, Meg Foster, Gina Phillips
Storyline: Storyline from the first film continues as they are trying to end the Creeper’s reign
Review (Spoils): So the Creeper is back and this time his van is setup to kill. The storyline continues after the first film and just before the second one (the one with the school bus). Sgt Davis Tubbs tries his hardest to taken down the creeper before he kills more. But unfortunate he does and his van is super powered with weapons.
This film is lacking to be honest. I was a fan of the first film as it had that classic 70s 80s horror feel. This one is just a battle scene without any sense. Its like a cross between Christine and Pumpkinhead and it just does not work. I personal did not want to watch a 1.5 hour film on a killer van but instead I wanted the flying licking demon fiend known as the creeper. Not sure what Victor Salva was trying to do with this film. Plus to take place right in-between the first two films they should of called this 1.5 as I had no idea until pretty much the damn end of the timeline. Sure the creeper is in the film but kill after kill I felt there was no uniqueness to it or something where I went right on!
The characters are annoying and boring as hell in this storyline. The creeper is cool looking but at the same time he reminds more now of the djinn from the Wishmaster films. The van is just too much in the film and we do not care. Sure we have some kills and blood and lots of shooting weapons from the magical van but it all just seemed like a bunch of shit mashed together.
Rating: Not a fan of this film part of me wish it would have ended after a hour. Just a bunch of kids roaming around acting like they are 12 and the deputy looking to end the creepers killing. Even with the return of Gina Phillips in the end was not enough for me to get excited. Its just too bad they lost focus of the series with this entry.
