Horror director Victor Salva has been exposed as an alleged convicted child molester by American tabloid GLOBE.

The movie-maker behind JEEPERS CREEPERS and its 2003 sequel was allegedly caught in possession of sick videos he had made back in the 1980s and he served 15 months in prison.

His sordid past has been forgotten about as he makes hit films, but the detective who led the case against him will never forget.

SERGEANT GARY PRIMAVERA says, "Victor has every characteristic of a paedophile that I know of. There was no sign of remorse."
