Storyline

On their way back home during the spring break, Darry and Patricia Jenner witness a mysterious person dumping something down a tunnel. Deciding to discover what was dumped down there, Darry discovers a huge disturbing hideout full of modified bodies. Darry and Patricia set off to get help, unaware that the individual is now aware of who has been down the tunnel. Darry and Patricia soon realizes that their pursuer is not just a mysterious person, but something even more horrifying, who has more in store than they could possibly imagine. Written by FilmFanUK

Trivia

While looking at the hand print on the cardoor handle, a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment has a shadow pass over Trish, followed by the sound of a wingbeat. This comes before they discover that their pursuer isn't human, and has wings. See more »

Goofs

(at around 2 mins) In an early scene where Darry is speeding to catch up to an RV in front of them, we hear the car shifting gears about three times. However, when shots looking into the car at Darry driving are shown, it is his right hand on the wheel, while we still hear gears shifting. Unless there was a shifter by the door and near his left hand or he switched rapidly, this wouldn't be possible. See more »

Quotes

Darry: We have to get out of here.
Trish: No, let's stay and feed the birds.

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 »

Way Better Than Expected,WAY Better
1 October 2016 | by jordansepticeyeSee all my reviews

I thought this movie was gonna be mediocre,based on the Scooby Doo like title and the reviews,but this was excellent.First off,the story,the concept was so creepy and unique,I can't really explain it without spoiling the movie,so I'll just say it was great.Second,the atmosphere,yes there is gore,but the movie doesn't focus on that,it focuses on tension and suspense.Third,the characters,they are well acted,well developed,and feel real.The effects are great,and so is the main villain,the Creeper,you don't know much about him,which makes him even more scary.The setting was good,but last,the pacing,it may have been slow,but I was glued to the screen the whole time.Now onto the negatives,I thought although the movie was overall dark and creepy,there was many cheesy moments that took me out of the movie and some bad dialogue,but that's it.Jeepers Creepers is a well made,suspenseful movie with some stupid moments
