On their way back home during the spring break, Darry and Patricia Jenner witness a mysterious person dumping something down a tunnel. Deciding to discover what was dumped down there, Darry discovers a huge disturbing hideout full of modified bodies. Darry and Patricia set off to get help, unaware that the individual is now aware of who has been down the tunnel. Darry and Patricia soon realizes that their pursuer is not just a mysterious person, but something even more horrifying, who has more in store than they could possibly imagine. Written by FilmFanUK

Trivia

The oath "Jeepers Creepers!" originated in the early 20th century as a polite euphemism for Jesus Christ. Jiminy Crickets was a synonym before the latter phrase was co-opted by Walt Disney as the name of a cartoon insect. 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 »

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.
