Jeepers Creepers: Reborn: HorrorHound officially confirms their involvement

Last Updated on August 28, 2023

The plot synopsis for Jeepers Creepers: Reborn, Iron Sky director Timo Vuorensola’s reboot of the Jeepers Creepers franchise, mentions that the characters are going to the “HorrorHound festival”… and if you’ve been wondering if the real-life HorrorHound magazine / film / record / convention company had anything to do with the production, the answer is yes! HorrorHound Weekend Ltd. has officially confirmed that they have been working with the makers of Jeepers Creepers: Reborn and helped them with their fictional version of the convention by providing their name, logo, and merchandise.

The involvement was originally supposed to go even deeper than that, as Jeepers Creepers: Reborn was going to be partially filmed at an actual HorrorHound Weekend convention that would have been held in Louisiana, and fans attending the convention would have had the opportunity to appear in the film as extras. But then the pandemic hit, so the HorrorHound convention had to be reimagined as an outdoor event for the movie, which ended up being shot in secret back in December and January.

Jeepers Creepers: Reborn was directed by Vuorensola from a screenplay by Sean Michael Argo and Jake Seal. It has the following synopsis: 

Chase and Laine head to the HorrorHound festival where Laine begins to experience unexplained premonitions and disturbing visions associated with The Creeper and the town’s past. As the festival gets underway and the blood-soaked entertainment builds to a frenzy, Laine believes that something unearthly has been summoned for the first time in 23 years and that she is at the center of it.

Sydney Craven, Imran Adams, Ocean Navarro, Matt Barkley, Alexander Halsall, Jodie McMullen, Georgia Goodman, and Jarreau Benjamin star.

The reimagining was produced by Jake Seal of Orwo Studios & Black Hangar Studios, along with Michael Ohoven of Infinity Films. Screen Media’s Seth Needle serves as executive producer, while Screen Media’s Creative Executive Conor McAdam is associate producer. Other executive producers are Jamie R. Thompson, Terry Bird, David Nagelberg. Danny Zamost, Michael Musante, Lee Broda, Matthew Kurtain, Karey Kurtain, Alastair Burlingham, Gary Raskin, Elizabeth Primm, Suraj Gohil, Mark Mariani, Janelle Mariani, Galen Rasmussen, and Shannon Chandler.

Screen Media will be releasing Jeepers Creepers: Reborn sometime in 2022. An image of the film’s version of a HorrorHound event can be seen below.
