Throughout the movie, Jeepers Creepers drives an enormous truck in which he chases potential victims, transports bodies, etc. So when he needs to fill up the gas tank, does he siphon the gas from his victims' cars or does he just use his Visa? Not to mention, his truck is in excellent mechanical condition which leads to 3 possible options. Jeepers Creepers is either a highly skilled mechanic in all aspects of automobiles, he has never been to the same mechanic twice, or his usual mechanic has some very heavy brass balls. On that note, how does he power the lights and music players in his house of pain? Is he on the grid; paying his utility bills, taxes, and everything else, or has he once again astounded us and managed to produce his own power for as long as he has been around killing stupid kids.

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.
