Jeepers Creepers is a popular horror franchise spawning over twenty years, four films, and a passionate fanbase. But this community has become increasingly divided as public awareness surrounding its creator’s disturbing crime continues to rise.

With its second episode out today, the new true crime podcast Jeepers Creepers Unseen attempts to unearth this controversial franchise by reviving its past, contextualizing the harm perpetuated by the creator, and taking an honest look at why so many fans refuse to let this series of films die.

In Part II: The Films, the Jeepers Creepers Unseen podcast receives the help of Trauma-Informed Counsellor Juliana Bruyn to discuss the first three films in the series through a therapeutic lens. Bruyn has been working in the addictions and mental health fields for over a decade and brings in a unique and valuable perspective to these films and the context surrounding its creator.

Some publications, and fans, are still supporting the Jeepers Creepers films as normal, while others would rather help keep this franchise buried due to the crimes of its creator. This new mini-series tackles the classic question of separating art from the artist, and whether this art is worth the kind of restoration that requires. 

With a fourth movie now hailing from new filmmakers, Jeepers Creepers Unseen will ask if this well-loved film series can reckon with history and thrive, or, is now the time to move on? Find answers to these questions and more on the all-new four-part limited audio series Jeepers Creepers Unseen.

The second episode of Jeepers Creepers Unseen landed today on the DREAD Podcast Network via Development Hell. Subscribe to the Development Hell podcast so you never miss an episode.
