Jeepers Creepers: Reborn is a horror film that belongs to the Jeepers Creepers franchise that started in late 2020 and enjoyed considerable success. Although the success was not as big as that of other movies in the genre like The Conjuring and Saw, it was significant enough to establish a new horror film franchise on a solid footing. Being the franchise’s fourth film, many would call the movie Jeepers Creepers 4. Written by Sean Michael Argo, the film director is Timo Vuorensola, and Screen Media Films is responsible for releasing the film. Most likely, the movie will be a soft reboot of the franchise, and fans of horror movies would see the same Creeper but with a twist. Adding some new dimensions to the character infuses new life into it that would create a new world within the sphere of horror.
Jeepers Creepers: Reborn – The Plot
The Jeepers Creepers: Reborn full movie is set against the backdrop of a festival of horror films being held in Louisiana for the first time under the name Horror Hound festival. Hundreds of die-hard fans of horror films went to the event, which attracted some freaks and geeks. Chase, a fanboy of horror films, gets ready to attend the festival with his reluctant girlfriend Laine, who agrees to accompany Chase just for the sake of it. Before making it to the event, Laine starts visualizing disturbing visions connected to the town’s past. She was left flabbergasted while experiencing unexplained premonitions. She was especially horrified by the Creeper, which became an urban myth or local legend.
As the festival begins and there is a heightened frenzy about the blood-soaked entertainment Laine starts believing that some supernatural happenings are about to start and she will be at its center. The film revolves around Chase and Laine, the latter being the film’s protagonist.
The Beginning of a New Trilogy
With three movies in its kitty, the Jeepers Creepers franchise plans to start a new trilogy with the Jeepers Creepers 4. Although details are not available, there are going to be two more movies in the series that would be a part of the trilogy.
About the Film’s Release
Screen Media, the company responsible for releasing the film, had announced in February 2021 that the possible Jeepers Creepers 4 release date would be sometime in fall 2021. In the absence of any confirmed release date, there was speculation about the film releasing sometime in the second half of 2021. The assumption seemed realistic because releasing any horror movie around Halloween seemed quite sensible to draw a large crowd. Anytime between September and October seemed quite a possibility.
Unfortunately, things went awry for the film as it got embroiled in legal issues that halted its release. One of the film’s production companies Infinity Films Holdings, faced a lawsuit filed by Myriad Pictures, alleging the former of cheating while selling the production rights to Screen Media.
Until now, there is no certainty about the screening of Jeepers Creepers: Reborn.
