In the scene where Darry is in the pipe and Trish is keeping watch, notices headlights coming, and runs to the car, you can clearly see her trying to shift the shifter on the floor, but when the shot of her through the window comes up, you can see the real shift on the steering wheel. In the next shot it is gone. See more »

The film starts of as others have said, keen on generating tension, uncertainty and foreboding. The initial minutes take elements from other a number of road movies. The key strength of the movie is the Creeper himself.
The creation; The Creeper is unlike many horror creations - he/it is actually scary. Compare the Creeper to Jason, Freddie, the wishmaster etc etc - No contest. Is he a demon, a devil or a fallen angel ?
Every 23 years he feasts for 23 days, and takes the parts of his victims he wants. The movie is low budget, and the effects on occasion do suffer, but considering the budget it packs as many thrills as any horror I have seem for a number of years. A modern day B Movie classic.
