Despite not having the same success as sagas like ‘Saw‘ O ‘The Conjuring‘, has the undeniable value of having presented an original creature on a par with the greatest monsters.

Last February, Screen Media announced that the film would be released in fall 2021. No official release date was given, but that limits the release window to the second half of this year. Since ‘Jeepers Creepers: Reborn’ is a horror film, it will likely follow in the footsteps of many other genre films and will be released between September and October this year. Everything indicates that it will be during the month of October to benefit from Halloween season.
‘Jeepers Creepers: Reborn’ seems to be set in the framework of a horror fair called Horror Hound Festival, which will hold its first meeting in Louisiana. Unfortunately for those in attendance, the Creeper will stalk and kill everyone who gets in the way during the celebration. The protagonists will be Chase and his girlfriend Laine. A horror fan and a girlfriend less given to the movies but who will begin to have premonitions and visions of the Creeper and the city’s past.
