The iconic horror movie Jeepers Creepers will soon have another sequel. The Jeepers Creepers franchise started as a low-budget movie (only $10 million of expenses) directed by Victor Salva in 2001. Jeepers Creepers 2 was filmed in 2003, and its budget just slightly topped that of the previous film ($17 million).
Despite the minuscule amount of financed put into both films, they had a huge success among the audience thanks to the intriguing plot and thrilling scenes. The box office proves that. While the first film collected around $60 million, the second chapter earned the creators some more. Namely, $64 million. The first movie’s financial success opened an opportunity for the authors to move the filming. So the second part was filmed everywhere, from several remote locations in Florida (Bushnell, Lake County, Marion County, Wildwood, Sumter County, Dannellon and Ocala) straight to LA, California (Tijon Ranch, Long Beach).
