Trivia

According to writer/director Victor Salva the inspiration for the character of Jack Taggart Sr. was Captain Ahab in Herman Melville's Moby Dick. At one point Taggart was even supposed to quote Ahab ("from hell's heart I stab thee") in his showdown with The Creeper, but this was not included in the film. See more »

Goofs

When the creeper crashes through the truck and causes it to flip end over end near the end of the film, the device that was used to blow the rear end of the truck upwards is visible on the bottom of the truck under the bed. See more »

Quotes

[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.

Scary follow-up...a winged creature frightens stranded teen-agers on a bus...
19 August 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Not since the early days of Wes Craven thrillers have we had a really good fright flick to scare us in true Halloween fashion. This one does the trick thanks to some extra good CGI effects and some scary situations in the middle of a deserted countryside where teens find themselves menaced by a winged creature determined to make them his flesh-eating victims.

In the only adult role, RAY WISE does a convincing job of making it all look reasonable enough to swallow--and it owes a lot of its punch to the imaginative tales of authors like Stephen King. There are no standout performances among the various teens, but all of them look incredibly afraid of the winged creature--with good reason. The make-up job here is marvelously chilling.

The story is the stuff dreams are made of--or rather, nightmares. And it's all done with extremely clever build-up of suspense as the teens, one by one, become divisive and challenge each other in ways that only undermine their vulnerability. A few of the scenes are very graphic in depicting the creature's stranglehold on his victims and not for the squeamish--or the young and impressionable.

Recommended as a good fright flick, nothing more. But credit must be given to director Victor Salva for keeping the whole tale tense and taut with visual excitement.

Summing up: An above average thriller of its kind. Jonathan Breck makes one scary Creeper.
