CGI Jeepers Creepers
10 June 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I really had my doubts to pick this one up and I did it a few times, now that I watched it I had hoped that I left it on the shelves. The story you have seen a thousand times before. Legends coming alive.

It starts rather okay by the way that a prank goes wrong. All friends promise that they will never tell the truth about what happened. Naturally they forgot that a urban legend can come alive and is seeking revenge. Sadly, it only appears in reflections and it did in full stupid looking CGI.

The mothman goes after all the friends and once he can fly it all looked like Jeepers Creepers (2001). But it all looked really ridiculous. Nevertheless, the director Sheldon Wilson did knew his stuff by directing already a few horrors like Kaw (2007) and Screamers (2009). But this flick failed completely. I can only speak for myself but Jewel Staite couldn't convince me. But she can act as seen in Serenity (2005).

It never becomes creepy or scary or bloody at all. The poking of the eyes didn't work and scene's with the knife also looked cheaply done. The end was predictable. Ideal for teenagers but not for the horror buffs among us.
