Was Jeepers Creepers 3 Worth All the Drama?

After many many years of anticipation for the 3rd installment in the Jeepers Creepers franchise, it seemed to cause more damage than good. There is no question that there is a fanbase out there for this horror icon, The Creeper. The ancient monster from God knows where has a following and when the news broke out for another sequel, fans were excited. Unfortunately, due to the making of this movie, the horrible news arose that the director of the previous 2 films, Victor Salva, was caught up in a bit of controversy. This lead to a delay in release, funding, advertising, boycotting, and questioning if this movie was going to even be released on the big screen. It dredges up a lot of questioning and moral obligation on whether fans were supporting the behavior of the director by going to see this movie thus putting more money in Salva’s pocket and to some people supporting his crime.

Jeepers Creepers 3 finally received a release date but it’s not what you think. For one night only in theatres across the world, most people had only 2 showings, maybe 3 to catch this feature on Sept. 26th 2017, before it was never seen again on the big screen. A lot of people rushed to the chance to catch this monumental event out of curiosity. I happened to be one of those few that took the opportunity. Since this movie now just announced that it will also air one night on the SYFY channel. I thought it was my duty to tell you what to expect if you missed your chance at the movies but want to check it out on TV.

Movie Review: Beauty and the Beast Is a Charming and Modern Take on the Disney Classic

I am reviewing this movie as a stand alone movie with little comparison to the Disney animated classic most people are used to. Providing you with info of this movie and how entertaining it is rather than compare the two will give you more insight on what to expect and if this live action movie is worth watching at the movies. 

Any story translated from animation/comic/video game to live action I look for one thing: How close they are on likeness in looks and mannerisms. Anything else regarding the movie is fair game. You can change the story, how it ends and begins, back story, etc. They picked a great cast for this movie. The casting of Le Fou played by Josh Gad and Lumiere played by Ewen McGregor were spot on in my opinion.

The production sets and costumes on the characters were pretty good. Definitely looked like a Disney film. The CGI effects of the household items looked really good. The beast looked great. There were times I couldn’t tell if it was all CGI or if it was a costume.
