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

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

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.

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

Jonathan Breck has grown into the character of the Creeper quite effectively -- his malevolent stare is almost as nightmare-inducing as the notion of Salva moving into your neighborhood.

The movie works better as perverse comedy -- assuming it was meant to be funny. Whether intentionally funny or unconsciously so, I can't say I didn't have a good time with all this silliness.

I feel optimistic about a horror series that is willing to layer subtext beneath a toy-shop full of tricks.

It creeped me out pretty good.

A minimalist monster movie that dares to be ridiculous...
| Original Score: 2.5/4

I can recommend the film ... as a competently made, relatively scary horror flick.

All in all JC-2 has enough going for it for me to recommend.

The Creeper really expresses himself far more than his sitting duck victims.

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.

Salva may not be doing anything new, but he does it well enough to suggest it won't be 23 more years before the Creeper shows up again.
| Original Score: 3/4

For the first 40 minutes or so, while the movie takes place in the daytime, we have a brilliantly filmed version of a typical horror script. Once night descends, the film descends with it.

It can be enjoyed as schlock by horror fans and its targeted teen audience, even though it's rather artfully made, and also appreciated as something more provocative and disturbing by those of us willing to read between its lines.
| Original Score: 3/4

Still offers a lot of good scary fun.

If horror is your thing, then Jeepers Creepers 2 is definitely worth a trip to the theatre. Just don't take the bus.

Salva develops the tension and terror with skill.
