Evil is right behind you. Yeah, that was the original Jeepers Creepers tag line. Now, I would like to point out that in Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral, there is a cathedral right behind the colon. What is scarier than an entire cathedral behind your colon? Nothing. I am now scared.
Series mastermind Victor Salva is back in the director’s seat, and he has yet again written the script. Apparently he works for scale. Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral once stars a monster that only comes out every twenty-third spring for twenty-three days, during which time it eats people and sews up their bodies for reasons unknown. (It’s evil) There is a casting rumor that original Jeepers star Gina Phillips may reprise her role from the first, which had her brother killed at the end, so in typical sequel fashion, she’ll come back to kill the Creeper, but probably find herself not quite up to the challenge.
Who’s It For?
The first one had Justin Long’s eyes torn out at the end, so I’m thinking it’ll go for a G rating this time. Kid’s hate their eyes.

What’s Good About It?
I like that the director has stayed with the series. Oh course, considering the only other film of his I recognize is Powder, I should get my hopes up. Unless they cast Jeff Goldblum.
What’s Bad About It?
I really thought the second one was a proper ending to the series. I never saw it, but I like to think that it would have finished in such spectacular fashion that when leaving the theater everyone would look at each other and say, “How could it go up from there? It’s like Heath Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight, you just can’t top perfection.” Then there’d be a moment of silence, they’d all nod, and go back to the insane asylum.
Our Clever Prediction
Everyone knows the third film in a series is always the best. Spider-man 3, Godfather Part 3, Batman Forever, Superman 3, the list goes on. Actually, that’s all I could come up with off the top of my head. Anyways, expect a little gold man name Oscar to come calling during award season. He’ll need help with the valet parking and the cast should be desperate for work.
