If you haven’t seen Jeepers Creepers then do yourself a favor and watch it.
It’s not super scary but it is creepy as hell.
From the opening sequence when we’re first introduced to that menacing jalopy truck that torments our main peeps, reminiscent of Steven Spielberg’s Duel…we’re just left in dangling suspense.
So the story: Trish and Darry, sister and brother heading home for Spring Break on the back roads of inbreederville, are tormented briefly while driving. Shortly after they drive past an old church, see the old truck and the “Creeper” tossing a body down a hole. The Creepers sees them seeing him and soon enough he runs them off the road. That’s when Dumb and Dumber make the WRONG decision to go back and check down the hole.***
***NOTE: If you ever find yourself in a horror movie scenario and there is an option of going back to check to see what’s been thrown down a hole/check out an abandoned house/visit a graveyard (especially after dark)/get in a car with a stranger/etc. DO NOT DO IT!!!! It’s that simple. DON’T GO! Stay the eff put or get the hell out of there but DO NOT make the wrong decision. ANYTHING you have to be talked into is the wrong decision. <<– And THAT right there is your advice for the day! Heed it!
This movie isn’t the best one out there. In fact, while re-watching it I was left bored at times. But the little subtleties thrown in are great (if you can catch them), and when we’re hit with the Creeper……Yikes.
It’s a fun movie and the ending is kinda cool, kinda gross.
Watch it and enjoy it.
