World Premiere of “Jeepers Creepers 3” Shut Down by Threats of Protest.
For a summary of writer/director Victor Salva’s criminal past and why many horror fans are choosing to boycott Jeepers Creepers 3. We are also including a link to a statement from Nathan Forrest Winters, Salva’s abuse survivor. We do NOT support everyone who chooses to boycott this film and we WILL continue to bring JCP fans together on supporting this petition so we can see the film this year.
We had previously promoted an advanced screening of Jeepers Creepers 3 to be held in Los Angeles on September 13th. This event sold out in a matter of days and stars from all 3 Jeepers Creepers movies were slated to attend. Fans and industry insiders from all over the world, not to mention out of state cast members, had all booked travel and hotel rooms in order to attend.
Promoter/Organizer Kory Davis gave a news conference this afternoon to break the sad news, where he was able to elaborate on the circumstances that turned what could have been a historic event into an epic disappointment. I'd previously spoken to Davis at several steps during the planning stages, and he’s done everything humanly possible to make this event a success.
I want to make it 100% clear: This is not Davis’ fault; over the years he’s produced many successful screenings throughout Los Angeles, including an incredible double-feature of Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky last month. These truly are circumstances beyond his control. The event was legitimate and was intended to be the world premiere of Jeepers Creepers 3.
The decision to cancel was made by the TCL Chinese Theater after they received threats of protest. They were contacted by individuals who promised not only to protest the event on 9/13 but to protest out front of the theaters every day between now and then. The theater has a sterling reputation in Los Angeles, and aren’t willing to risk their name. Despite the mess and heartache, this has caused among many parties involved, Davis supports the Chinese Theater’s decision completely.
Jeepers Creepers 3 will be released nationwide on 1 night only, September 26th.
