In Jezelle's living room scene, Victor Salva's high school graduation picture can be seen doctored up to look like a record album from the 1930s with "Jeepers Creepers" on it. See more »
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 »
I found parts of this movie, mainly the beginning to be very promising. I really thought that it was going to be an 'on the edge of your seat' horror film and the opening had all the tension and weirdness that one needs to set that kind of atmosphere. But as the movie progressed, even though it never sunk to being bad or even mediocre (no Friday the 13th B.S. here), I think it became a little bit of a disappointment because it didn't live up to the promise that it made in the beginning. And although I like to let my mind fill in the blanks, there was a lot that went unexplained that made it so that I wasn't really satisfied by the time it finished. I didn't recognize the names of the actors or the director, and they were neither here nor there for me - that's not to say that I thought the performances were bad, they definitely were fitting and on the mark for the genre. It's just that they didn't really stick out for me.
All of the above being said, if the movie was on cable on a cold winter night, I'd probably relent and watch it again - it's certainly better than most in it's category, but would I recommend it as a 'great' film? No, probably not.
