If the reptile brain in you, that ugly little cluster of cerebral cells where all the destructive urges lie, needs a good jolt, Jeepers Creepers offers you just such a treat.

A good way to find some genuinely creepy moments in a decade where they were short in supply.

One of the most terrifying horror movies to come along in years...

One genuinely gets the sense from the first hour of this film that Salva is exorcising some of his own demons.

One of those horror movies in which its characters do such unbelievably stupid things all the time that you literally want to shout at them.

Full Review… | August 25, 2004

The only thing about this movie that really made me shudder is that we are probably going to be deluged with a bunch of crappy sequels for it.

College kids innocently heading home for vacation accidentally cross paths with a murdering !#*! ... and then ... and then ... !
An exacting blend of stupid people doing stupid things versus the director's skill at keeping you watching, waiting, for the next big scare. It'll be up to you to decide whether the constant mind games are worth the trouble.

Not a joy ride. Void of creepers unless you count the one in the title. Don't get on board only unless you can't find nothing else to entertain you.
