Alternate Versions

On the German Code 2-DVD (Platinum Edition) by MAWA/VCL (and perhaps the VHS as well) you can't hear the screaming of Darry/Justin Long when the Creepers tortures him. The screaming has been removed on the dubbed versions. But you can hear it softly if you tune in to the audio commentary by the director (who also comments the screams). See more »

Half A Terrifying Movie
1 April 2019 | by amandagellar-31077See all my reviews

Jeepers Creepers had me! It had me the way so few horror films have ever had me. For about 30/45 minutes, I couldn't move - I was paralyzed with pure fear. The mood was thick, the threat was frightening, the characters were pretty well drawn, the acting was good - everything was going swell.

And then the creature feature silliness starts.

It's a shame that Jeepers Creepers can't keep its energy up to a satisfying finale. Maybe people's mileage will vary. Personally, I'm not too scared by a creature that sprouts wings and flies off with people. It's just too goofy for me. It's a lot scarier to think that this creature might be something even spookier. Maybe if they'd kept the creature in the shadows more, it would have been scarier to me.

Still, the first act is one of the most terrifying things I've ever seen in my life and that's got to count for something.
