Harks back to 1950's comic book horror
1 September 2001 | by (Russellville, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

Jeepers Creepers has more in common with 1950's EC horror comic books than any B Horror movies that have been made in the past twenty years. That fact isn't bad, it's great! There are a lot of horror plot ideas out there that have never seen decent expression. The film has some decent surprises along the way and the pace stays interesting. The identity of the monster stays a little mysterious. You're not totally certain what it's supposed to be. The plot is done intelligently for a Grade B movie. The dialog isn't stupid or contrived. Go see or rent it. It's worth the cash.
