The filming of the scenes on the road was very difficult to record as iguanas were always crossed on the highway. See more »
(at around 31 mins) When Darry is in the pipe and Trish is keeping watch, notices headlights coming, and runs to the car, you can clearly see her trying to shift the shifter on the floor, but when the shot of her through the window comes up, you can see the real shift on the steering wheel. In the next shot it is gone. See more »

Half A Terrifying Movie
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.
