Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Gets off to a great start and then simply shuts down, like an awesome vintage car on an ambitious road trip.

- Andrew O'Hehir,, Thursday, August 30, 2001

Rotten: 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.

- Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Friday, August 31, 2001

Rotten: 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.

Jeepers Creepers is a very different Horror film than what we are used to. Director Victor Salva creates a horror film with a unique monster, The Creeper, a boogeyman type of monster. The film is very intense, and terrifying, it brings elements of old school horror and the cast here do a good job. Jeepers Creepers is a well done film film withn an original story that will please horror fans that are tired with cliched heavy horror films of the late 90's. The film starts off with a bang with the truck attack , which echoes Steven Spielberg's Duel. Jeepers Creepers is a terrifying horror film and has many scares for the audience, and it will make you feel uneasy. I think that Jeepers Creepers has had unnecessary flack because it's viewed as a ccheap thrill horror film. I really don't think that this film deserves all the bad press it has gotten. Jeepers Creepers is one of the most memorable horror films of the decade and it's certainly a good one at that because IT IS not a remake, it's an original film! After the really bad Horror films of the late 90s, this film is very refreshing in scaring you. It doesn't have the typical Scream horror clichs and its very enjoyable give it a chance; its really not a bad film at all. If you like boogeyman type films, the Jeepers Creepers is the type of film you need to watch. A very blood curdling film at times.

The story is pretty unique (not the killing part that shows that the monster doesn't die no matter how hard you try). I must admit that It was very frightening. I enjoyed the conversation between the brother and the sister. Loads of slang that will make you laugh a bit. But the atmosphere gets scarier after sometime. The ending was sad. The yelling part seemed fake, Darry (Justin Long seemed like having fun in the Fifa Tournament (well it sounded like that). The Cat Lady looked more scarier than the Jeeper Creeper lol.
