This is true. The director of Jeepers Creepers 3, Victor Salva, is a convicted child molester. He sexually assaulted a child while on the set of a movie he directed back in the 90s. He filmed the assault and was also charged with possession of child pornography. Don’t support this movie or give it a cent of your money. It’s already hard enough for sexual assault victims to come out with what happened, especially if their abuser has a lot of power and money. Don’t add on to the trend of forgiving celebrity rapists. STOP GIVING THESE MEN FREE PASSES.
don’t scroll past this with a wave of the hand, this is 100% real.

aside from molesting a 12-year-old boy, this man admitted to oral sex with a child under fourteen and was also found guilty of having possession of child pornography (in the form of magazines and tapes) in his home.
salva made a sex tape of him and a minor (actually multiple sex tapes) where he both gave and received oral sex.
now, for some reason, child molester doesn’t elicit the type of outrage that i’d hope it would, so i’ll put it a different way. victor salva had sex with a minor, therefore he is a rapist. salva committed statutory rape, and he does not deserve to be breathing, much less have his movie watched.
FYI Nathan Forest Winters, the survivor of Victor Salva’s abuse, is trying to raise money to start a non profit organisation to help victims and survivors of child sex abuse
He only has 522$ raised so far. Even if you can’t donate i think it’s a campaign worth sharing and boosting.
From the campaign page:
“my name is nathan forrest winters. i am a child sex abuse survivor. known for my role as casey in the 1987 horror film ‘clownhouse’ written and directed by victor salva known best for the films ‘powder’ and the ‘jeepers creepers’ series and being the man that sexually abused me for six years of my childhood. towards the end of ’87 salva was convicted of 5 counts of child molestation and sentenced to three years. of which he served a mere eighteen months at a treatment center in napa valley california. i am currently outlining a nation wide speaking tour at various key and pertinent venues to raise awareness, educate and provide information and tools to stop sexual child abuse at all levels. i am also in the beginning stages of starting a non-profit organization “we R their voice ” to be the voice for our children who virtually have none in our judicial system. to bring this epidemic out into the forefront. we as a whole in this country have been too afraid to face such an unspeakable topic and continue to turn a blind eye. which has allowed these predators of our children to go unchecked for too long. just a few of many disturbing facts is that every 98 seconds an american is sexually assaulted. every 8 minutes that victim is a child. meanwhile only 6 out of every 1,000 perpetrators is convicted. united victims and survivors, parents and children can make this world safer. education is prevention and the more light we shed on these darkest of crimes, the fewer shadows there will be for them to hide.”
