Jeepers Creepers may have featured an imaginatively conceived creature, but the brain-dead calibre of its story (thanks to some very stupid screenwriters) marginalized any possibility that this film may have had of ever being considered really great horror.... (*Watch movie-trailer*)

Problem #1 was the annoying squabbles that often took place between Darry Jenner and his sister, Trish. The opening sequence with these 2 bozos together in their car, spewing out all of their asinine banter, was more than I could stand.

Problem #2 was the staggering stupidity of the creature.

As far as I'm concerned, for a monster of this one's calibre (who operated in such a blatantly open way), I can't imagine how this dimwit creature could've possibly survived and carried on with what it was doing for as long as it did. 'Cause that would've been utterly impossible. Yep. That would've certainly sent far too many people chasing after it and tracking it down in order to destroy it.

Anyway - Time and again, I found myself throwing up my hands in utter exasperation over a potentially horrifying story that was obviously written by non-thinking imbeciles.

Mixed feelings about this movie. On one hand it has one of the best creatures I've ever seen on film. Looks great, and even the truck he drives is rather fear inducing. I know if I was going down the road and saw that headed in my direction, I'd be worried! That being said the two main characters are anything but likable, the acting is rather bad and some of the decision making leaves you scratching your head. Both the characters and the Creeper himself make some stupid moves throughout the movie. This is the type of movie that, could have an amazing remake. I'd keep the Creeper and all his aspects the same, but besides that the rest of the movie could be improved. Get Del Toro to do a remake/sequel, he'd be perfect for this.

All that being said, I do enjoy this movie very much, but it's not for everyone. Give it a watch and make a decision for yourself.

Enjoyed this, and for a current type horror flick, it's also quite suspenseful. Has a wonderfully frightening main villain.

this movie came around (years ago) when i had lost all faith the original movies were a thing of the past, it seemed everything was mind numblingly stupid and insulting. While this script and plot are nothing amazing. It is fairly decent and still holds up to films today (many of which are insulting to any real horror fan) will it scare the bejeebies out of you? No. Will it give you bad dreams or make you leave the lights on? absolutely not. Will it entertain you? Absolutely!

This movie has one of the best looking creatures i have seen in my collection of horror films. The sound is good and you should use your HOME THEATER SYSTEM while watching this. I also enjoyed the way this monster repaired itself by eating the body parts that it needed from it's victims. And using it's smelling capabilities to hunt. The vehicle that the monster used was spooky looking with a great horn that sound very good. I enjoyed this movie. But some people, like my friend, didn't like the two lead characters. I thought the brother and sister were silly and just a little funny at times while my friend was hoping they would get killed. And believe me, she spoke often at the screen. Sometimes screaming "I hope they die." You could tell she was really into the movie. I gave this movie 4 and a half stars. For a great looking monster, creepy looking vehicle, and a decent story. Plenty of popcorn.

Supposed to be scary but I find the movie to be funny. The two lead characters are very annoying.
