With the release of Jeepers Creepers: Reborn, the Jeepers Creepers franchise is being revived. The movie, while technically the fourth in the Jeepers Creepers horror-mystery film series, ushers in a new trilogy that stands separately from the first three.
The 2001 film Jeepers Creepers centers on the Jenner brothers, Darry and Trish (Gina Phillips) (Justin Long). The two see a truck driver throwing bodies into a pipe while they are returning home from spring vacation. As it turns out, the truck driver is an old monster known as The Creeper (Jonathan Breck), and the siblings’ participation in his crimes puts them on his radar.
Despite receiving unfavorable reviews, Jeepers Creepers was a box office hit. After directing Jeepers Creepers, Victor Salva went on to create and film two sequels. Even though Jeepers Creepers 2 was a box office hit, critics gave it a much worse review than the first one.
The third installment of Jeepers Creepers debuted in 2017, had a brief two-day theatrical run, and received even poorer reviews. Given that Salva, who had previously served time in prison for sexual abuse and having child pornography on his person, was in charge of the series, this specific series of horror movies has always generated controversy.
Even while it might be best to leave the Jeepers Creepers franchise alone, the relaunch will at least entirely ignore Salva. The movie’s writers and directors are Sean Michael Argo and Timo Vuorensola. The Creeper has also had his part replaced after Breck played him in each of the three original flicks.
The franchise appears confident in its capacity to rebound under Vuorensola’s leadership despite its contentious and lackluster background. What is known about Jeepers Creepers is as follows: So far, rebirth.
Jeepers Creepers: Reborn‘s Uncertain Release Date
The official teaser for Jeepers Creepers: Reborn indicates that it will be released on September 19, 2022. There will be a few theatre showings of the movie. Released exclusively in theatres from September 19 to September 21, it will be a 3-day fan event. The first release date prediction for Jeepers Creepers: Reborn was 2021. However, 2021 passed without a sound until a teaser revealed a postponed 2022 release date.
Even the 2022 release date is currently a huge unknown. This is due to reports that the movie is now involved in a legal dispute. Infinity Films, the production firm for Jeepers Creepers: Reborn, is being sued by Myriad Pictures, who co-produced Jeepers Creepers 2 and Jeepers Creepers 3.
Despite the fact that the two businesses collaborated on the movie’s concepts in 2018 and 2019, Myriad Pictures claims that Infinity Films developed the reboot without their knowledge. Given the initial intense secrecy around Jeepers Creepers: Reborn, this is not all that surprising.
According to reports, the movie was secretly shot in 2020 during the COVID-19 epidemic, and it now appears that not only moviegoers were shocked by the sudden unveiling of the movie in February 2021.
To make matters worse, Infinity Films is accused of having given Screen Media the distribution rights to the movie Jeepers Creepers without Myriad Pictures’ consent. The movie hasn’t been formally delayed as of yet.
Even the official teaser, which was unveiled on July 21st, still lists September 2022 as the release month. But it seems strange that the movie would be released without the legal dispute being resolved first. The jury trial for the lawsuit is not scheduled to begin until January 2024.
Jeepers Creepers: Reborn Trailer
On July 21, 2022, Screen Media Films released the official trailer for Jeepers Creepers: Reborn. The Creeper mythos is briefly detailed in the teaser.

In Jeepers Creepers: Reborn’s trailer, Laine (Sydney Craven) and Chase, the two central figures, are also depicted (Imran Adams). The two are traveling by car to the Horror Hound Festival and appear to be a pair.
Laine balks at being dragged to the event and is Chase’s reluctance plus one. Her attitude shifts from irritation to terror, though, as she begins to think about The Creeper and worries about what the event might be arousing.
Her worries come true when Laine and Chase are later seen among a group of people stuck in what appears to be an abandoned home, being pursued by The Creeper. The trailer is provided below.
