Corporate Line: As its 23 horrifying days of flesh-eating come to an end, an ancient creature known as the Creeper embarks on a final voracious feeding frenzy, terrorizing a group of varsity basketball players, cheerleaders and coaches stranded on a remote highway after their bus breaks down. Fighting their own fears and prejudices while trapped aboard the isolated bus, the terrified group of young athletes are forced to come together and do battle against the winged creature hell-bent on completing its grizzly ritual of feasting on humans.
The Good: The Creeper caught some and put them out of their misery. The Creeper is actually creepy in a Freddy Krueger sort of way – which means he’s not exactly scary. A few scenes are almost comical. Which now that I think about it really belong under the bad section of this review…
The Bad: Jeepers Creepers is slow. Very, very slow. You watch a horror film to be scared. Watching this you only want everyone in the film to shut up. If you want to see a bunch of teens perform poorly thought out lines in a poorly thought out plot there are other teen movies to see. If you want to be scared then stay home and rent The Exorcist.
Frankly: I wasn’t looking to the sky while leaving the theater. Stay home, it’s a safer bet.
