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

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.

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

Few things are scarier than a sequel to a bad movie, but, in fact, Jeepers Creepers 2 is substantially better than its predecessor, even while staying strictly within the genre's well-defined boundaries.

Of course, the thing doesn't actually die. It just folds up its face and hibernates for another 23 years, or at least until the inevitable Jeepers Creepers 3: More Goo for You.

If it's less successful than the first one, that is not the same as saying that it's a failure.

I was disappointed that it failed to live up to its first film...

... an impressive second entry, and proof perfect that Salva may become a legendary horror film director.

June 19, 2008 Full Review Source: ESplatter

The nameless monster is akin to an unintentionally funny hybrid of Batman and a blowfish.

It's the kind of insanity that we enjoy watching with our friends, trying to figure out whether or not the director knew what he was doing.

March 19, 2004 Full Review Source: F5 (Wichita, KS)

Avoids many of the pitfalls of the original by setting low goals and aiming for wholly generic, monster-horror mediocrity.

Para compensar a falta de um roteiro, Victor Salva repete cada capotagem ou explosão várias vezes, de ângulos diferentes. É como ver inúmeros replays em uma partida sem gols.

Jeepers Creepers 2 is unremittingly bad.

January 1, 2004 Full Review

...just another monster flick, with most of its budget going into the Creeper's makeup.

Faults lie in not fully explaining the creature's origin or true motivations.

Jeepers, Creepers. Can't anyone make a decent horror film anymore?

This is not merely a bad concept, but a dumb and irrelevant one - an idea that feels like it was left over from some drug-induced brainstorming session in the basement of amateur B-movie directors.

September 26, 2003 Full Review Source:

A fright-free disaster that makes you long for the 80's glory days of straight-to-video horror.

September 22, 2003 Full Review Source: RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

Salva seems to suffer from 'premature direculation'. He shows his monster far too early, and far too often.

September 12, 2003 Full Review Source:

Something more than an assembly line creature feature. And Salva backs up his disturbed subtext with passable spookshow affection.

September 11, 2003 Full Review

The Creeper is quite the compelling little devil; too bad he's realized amidst such familiar trappings and tiresome caricatures.

September 11, 2003 Full Review Source:

It simply keeps repeating the same hunt and chase moments, run and hide material, and jump scenes over and over again.

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.

Way out on an anonymous highway an anonymous busload of teens make pretty bland repast for a pretty cool creature. I imagined the creature on the set between shots, cellphone in paw, firing its agent and then negotiating for a better script, better director, and a better cast ... next time. And ice cold Fiji in its changing van while we're at it.
