It’s been a while since I’ve seen the first two, and no I didn’t binge on them; I remember enough of them to know what happened. From what I’ve read about Jeepers Creepers 3 (2017) is that it happened between the first two movies, which isn’t confusing at all. My initial thought when I started watching was I hope they bring something new.
They did, somewhat. They tried to add a story to it, and honestly, not remembering every detail of the other two didn’t hinder me from getting what was going on, which is good for those of you who’ve never seen them; you don’t really need to.
Starts with attack from 23 years before then to present with police trying to get into the creepers truck; the contraptions are cool and dangerous. Then there’s an old woman talking to a ghost, and it progresses with the different lives of the lead characters. I kept looking at Addison Brandon, trying hard to figure out where I knew her from, then it hit me like a ton of bricks, she had a short role on Days of Our Lives; I’m not afraid to admit I’m addicted to Days.
The Creeper is still nasty to look at, and you don’t want to cross his path. At the end, I was torn between thinking it was good and that it was no different than the others. I did enjoy it, it was mindless and entertained. Was it a blockbuster hit? No, but how many horror movies lately have been?
I give it 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
