Did You Know?

The scene where Trish and Darry witness the Creeper dumping a body down a well by an abandoned church was inspired by the case of Dennis DePue, a former Michigan Property Assessor who murdered his wife and was seen by witnesses near an old school house with a bloody sheet. Two witnesses also recall DePue speeding past them in a van and eventually tailing them and riding their bumper for several miles. The case was also profiled on a 1990 episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" (1987).See more »
Continuity: In the very beginning of the movie, when Darry first says the name 'Poli-Sci-Track-Team-Guy', and right before Trish tells him that her relationship is none of his business, Darry's facial expression changes quickly. When Darry says 'Poli-Sci-Track-Team-Guy', he is smiling. Then, it cuts to the side of Darry's face, and he is not smiling.See more »

Lighten up people, 1 December 2002
Author: VoodooVince from Glasgow, UK

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.
