Jeepers Creepers (2001)



Critic Consensus: Jeepers Creepers has a promising start. Unfortunately, the tension and suspense quickly deflates into genre cliches as movie goes on.

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.

The plotting is a tad generic, and the film feels long at a scant 90 minutes. But the movie is good enough to put a chill into the late-summer air.

Feels too rote to inspire real terror.

Jeepers Creepers is better setting things up than following through. It must resort to psychic mumbo-jumbo that has to be played straight and doesn't work.

The only mystery to Jeepers Creepers is why Francis Ford Coppola chose to stamp his name on this grade-Z movie as producer.

It's nice to walk out of a celluloid house of terror without feeling all cut up inside for a change.

Audience Reviews for Jeepers Creepers


Despite the fact that the two main characters are complete idiots and the cinematography is so dark that sometimes it is really hard to see what is in front of us, this is a fun and creepy horror movie that is all the more intriguing when you know it was made by a convicted pedophile.

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