Trivia

In the scene with the cat lady, all her cats look through the screen on the windows because of tuna smeared on it. See more »

Goofs

In an early scene where Darry is speeding to catch up to an RV in front of them, we hear the car shifting gears about three times. However, when shots looking into the car at Darry driving are shown, it is his right hand on the wheel, while we still hear gears shifting. Unless there was a shifter by the door and near his left hand or he switched rapidly, this wouldn't be possible. See more »

Trish: Let's just use the phone.
Darry: And call who?

Darry: "Hey, bum-fuck police, I'm being chased by a guy who likes to pull tongues out of severed heads with his teeth. Is there a special extension for that?"

Lighten up people
1 December 2002 | by (Glasgow, UK) – See all my reviews

I've been reading the reviews for this film and have found myself sighing continually. Why? Because too many people take films like this far too literally. Like the reviewer who questions the characters decision to go back to the church. Hello, this is a horror film and if they weren't stupid we wouldn't have a movie. What were you expecting? Kubrick? Jeepers Creepers does exactly what it says on the tin. It's creepy, it's silly, and, if you can get over yourselves for a minute, lots of fun. Leave your brain at the door and have fun.
