Jeepers Creepers 3

Jeepers Creepers 3 is a 2017 American horror film written and directed by Victor Salva and the third installment in the Jeepers Creepers franchise, taking place in between Jeepers Creepers and Jeepers Creepers 2. Jonathan Breck reprises his role as the Creeper. The movie stars Meg Foster as Gaylen Brandon, Gabrielle Haugh as Addison Brandon, Stan Shaw as Sheriff Dan Tashtego, Joyce Giraud as Deputy Dana Lang & Gina Philips appears in a cameo at the end.

Set between the events of the first two films, the movie initially shows us a scene from 23 years before the events of the film in which the Creeper takes a victim and a man finds sees a severed hand fall from the sky. Now, 23 years later the police discover the Creeper’s truck filled with dead bodies. The truck is booby trapped and a cop is injured. Sheriff Dan Tashtego, who has just arrived with a small group of soldiers informs Sergeant Davis Tubbs that the creature is thousands of years old and must be stopped.

However the truck, which is headed for the impound by a tow truck and a deputy is attacked and the Creeper takes the driver as Deputy Lang watches in fear. ¬†The next day, Gaylen Brandon sees a vision of her son Kenny, who was killed by the Creeper twenty-three years earlier. He warns her that the Creeper will return soon to uncover something buried on the property and will kill anyone there, including her and her granddaughter, Addison. 4 teenager bikers find the truck in a field and approach it only for one of them to be harpooned and the rest killed off by the creature. Addison goes into town to buy hay for her horse. When she can’t pay for it, her friend Buddy helps her out and the two drive up to a plantation house to deliver more hay. There they find the owner and a couple other men hiding under cars, but before they can get help the Creeper arrives and abducts Addison, leaving Buddy traumatized.

Gaylen shows the officers the severed hand which when held gives a person secrets about the Creeper in a vision. Addison meanwhile wakes up and finds one of the bikers, Kirk, in the truck and they try to escape but Kirk ends up being speared in the head by a boobytrap. Tashtego and Tubbs discover the Creeper’s location and with the soldiers they approach the truck and shoot at it but the bullets rebound against the strong metal and a solider wielding a large gun is killed. The creature explodes a device that falls under their car and Tashtego and Tubbs find them knocked over in the field. Tubbs gets out and tries to shoot the Creeper, but all of his attempts fail. Before the Creeper can kill Tubbs, Tashtego calls him and he goes for him instead.

When the Creeper jumps into the air, Tashtego shoots him several times with the machine gun, but the bullets have no effect and he is tackled to the ground and struck in the head with an axe. When the Creeper stands he removes his axe from Tashtego’s head and walks away, while Tubbs watches from afar. At night Addison escapes when the Creeper attacks her inside the van but she causes the spear to shoot out and impale him in the head. Even this only temporarily phases him but she escapes, doges his spear and is found by Gaylen & Buddy. The Creeper is hit by a truck but he doesn’t die and kills the driver and rages in anger when he sees a sign that says “We know what you are”.

The next day, Addison says goodbye to Buddy as he leaves for a high school basketball game in the same bus that is attacked by the Creeper in the¬†second movie. Twenty-three years later, Trish Jenner is seen typing a letter on a computer calling for people to fight against the Creeper when it returns, and vows to get revenge on the Creeper for the death of her brother, Darry. Which means we could have another sequel and I hope so. This is one of my favourite horror franchises, especially the first one which I think is awesome. The second was ok and this one lacked much tension or horror and is more or less a slasher film with a supernatural being at the helm. It’s good enough for a 6.5 from me.

Arsenal 3 Liverpool 3

Roberto Firmino’s powerful finish earned Liverpool a draw in an incredible Premier League encounter that had seen Arsenal score three goals in just five second-half minutes. The Gunners had been trailing 2-0 after Philippe Coutinho scored his first headed league goal in England before Mohamed Salah added a second early in the second half with a deflected strike. But Arsenal suddenly came alive as Alexis Sanchez headed in Hector Bellerin’s cross from close range before Granit Xhaka’s thumping strike was too powerful for Simon Mignolet’s weak save. Barely two minutes later Mesut Ozil put Arsenal ahead with a neat clip over Mignolet.

Play swung from one end of the pitch to the other at blistering pace, with both sides looking capable of scoring with every attack. But it was Liverpool who had the final say in one of the most thrilling Premier League encounters in years as Petr Cech could only take the sting out of Firmino’s shot and the ball bounced over the line. The point meant Liverpool held onto fourth place, with Arsenal remaining fifth – a point behind the Reds. This had looked like being a routine win for Liverpool after a dominant first half. They led through Coutinho’s clever header and should have had more but for some uncharacteristically wasteful finishing by Sadio Mane and Salah. However, it was not long until the Premier League’s top scorer had his 15th of the season, and so began an incredible six minutes…

52 mins:¬†Salah races on to Firmino’s superb pass and makes it 2-0 with a deflected finish. Arsenal, who have not had a single shot on target, look beaten.

53 mins:¬†Out of nowhere, Arsenal are back in it. Sanchez is well placed to nod in Bellerin’s cross from close range.

56 mins:¬†What’s going on!? Arsenal are level! Xhaka tries his luck from 25 yards and the ball fizzes through Mignolet’s hand.

58 mins:¬†Goals! Goals! Goals! Arsenal are ahead as Ozil is on to Alexandre Lacazette’s backheel before clipping the ball over Mignolet.

The Gunners were no doubt helped by Liverpool’s poor defensive performance, but Arsene Wenger praised the character of his side to stage such a fightback.
