The Jeepers Creepers franchise kicked off with 2001’s Jeepers Creepers. The film followed two siblings, Trish and Darry, as they were hunted by the Creeper. Trish was the only survivor. The sequel followed the Creeper targeting a group of jocks ending with a cliff-hanger for a sequel. The third film is set 23 years after the events of the original, making it 23 years since the death of Trish’s brother Darry. This many years later, Trish now is now a mother of a son she dubbed Darry with whom she fears will suffer the same fate as her brother: killed by the Creeper.
