Movie Info

The Creeper is back, and he's brought his appetite with him in director Victor Salva's sequel to his popular 2001 sleeper. Stranded on the dreaded East 9 Highway while returning home from winning the championship game, a group of basketball players, cheerleaders, and coaches quickly realize that there's more to fear than a broken down bus when The Creeper descends mercilessly upon them. As his 23-day feeding frenzy draws to a close, The Creeper needs the sort of nourishment only a vital group of young athletes can provide, and to survive the night, the terrified teens will have to fight to their dying breaths.

Salva squanders all of his original movie's not-entirely- awfulness and bumbles into the realm of unintentional comedy.

Many unanswered questions of JC2 -- the '23' theme, why no one in Poho County, save one, can seem to find a broken-down school bus.

I think there's a reason they're a no name cast. There's not really anybody that's really very identifiable, or very good in their roles.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

A sequel that answers many questions, not least of which is, 'There was a Jeepers Creepers 1?'

Top Critic

It's gory, repetitive, and not terribly interesting.

Functional but tiresome.

Audience Reviews for Jeepers Creepers 2

Worse than its predecessor, this one has only one unintentionally funny sequence that's the least watchable. For the rest, it's a mighty sucker. With a generous heart, I give it 0.05/5.

Makes me want to go back and watch the original to see which I like best, but this is one of the best movies I'd seen in awhile...the creature is awesome. There is one of the deleted scenes I wish would've been included though, and probably would've made this a 5-star movie in my book.

Much better than I expected. Not good by any means, but I enjoyed it and genuinely wanted to see what happened at the end. Okay if you have nothing else to do.
