Did You Know?


In the first scene, before the Creeper appears, Jack Taggart Jr. is working underneath a truck. The device he uses to slide underneath it is commonly referred to as a "creeper". See more »


Toward the beginning of the film, when farmer Taggert and his older son are chasing the Creeper as he is dragging away the younger son, the sun is at their backs. When the Creeper flies away with the kid a minute later, they are now facing the sun, it having made a 180 degree change in position. See more »


[first lines]
Taggert: [yelling out to Billy, who's putting up scarecrows] Billy! Get number three up now. Don't come in to eat before you do. And check the other two! Make sure they're wired up good. I don't want them blowing over again the first big wind.

Jeepers Creepers pt. 2
30 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first "Jeepers Creepers", which was released in 2001, brought much-needed life into an ailing genre of films. That movie redefined horror and its settings, which instead of the usual ominous darkness, and confined spaces, took place mostly out in the open and in broad daylight. The movie also introduced us to a truly terrifying creature that could give any other slasher a run for their money. That movie earned a lot of its merits through tension, genuine shocks, and a general cloud of mystery of the "Creeper" monster. It didn't try to gross you out with the requisite gore, but the movie worked because so little was explained and a lot was left up to the viewer.

Now we're at 2003's "Jeepers Creepers 2." The movie works on the level of tension and genuine scares, but sacrifices itself half way through when we learn about how the creature hunts. (A girl on the bus begins having psychic visions and learns a little about the Creeper from one of the kids who died in the first movie.) I liked it better when we knew little or nothing about a monster in one of these movies, because that's where the real terror comes from in a horror film.

Victor Salva, who wrote and directed both movies knows what he's doing but I just hope that he doesn't screw up his own franchise. He knows how to scare an audience, but I hope he doesn't give into popular opinion and sacrifice everything he's probably worked so hard for.
