Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003)

The Creeper is back, and this time he is after a busload of high school students on their way home from the big game! Can the teens outlast the night and force The Creeper back into a forced hibernation? Unfortunately for us, they can, but not before he tears through more than half of their whiny, over-privileged, and utterly annoying friends on the road to nowhere. The main thing this sequel has going for it is the return of Jonathan Breck as the monstrous man-eating Creeper, who adds even more personality and dark comedy to his villainous role. Like in the original, JEEPERS CREEPERS 2 offers a few stylish moments and jolting shocks, but it is riddled with all of the same errors in logic and storytelling as before. Once again, Victor Salva relies on another psychic character to lend some clue as to what is going on, especially to anyone who had missed the first film. At the very least, The Creeper puts an end to the teens' incessant yammering in a number of brutal and bloody ways when he's not ingesting their organs to replace his own.

Rating: 6/10.

  1. Yeah, good to watch for certain kills and such, but loses some of the OOmph of the first film. The storyline with the little boy is rough, though.

  2. Two moments win out here: The corn field with the little boy, and the Creeper at the back of the bus picking out his victims. The rest is disposable IMO.
