Trivia

A total of four school buses were used in the film, including the converted sound stage bus for shooting the interiors. See more »

Goofs

Just after the opening sequence when the team is singing on the bus the camera moves from the front to the back of the bus with a clear view out the back window. It looks off for 2 seconds at one of the characters and then you hear the horn of a truck with a giant cockroach on the roof on it behind the bus. When the camera was moving from the front to the back of the bus there was clearly no truck approaching the back of the bus. See more »

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.
