Jeepers Creepers (2001)
Director: Victor Salva
Main Stars: Gina Philips, Justin Long, Jonathan Breck, Patrica Belcher
Storyline: A young brother and sister come upon a body being dumped in a tunnel. During the investigating they come upon a dumping ground and a creature called the creeper that has their scent.
Review (Spoils): Darry (Justin Long) and his sister Patricia (Gina Philips) were heading home from spring break when they come across someone dumping a dead body in a tunnel. Darry comes across a hideout that is filled with modified bodies. They run for help but they have been seen. This involves a RV tracking them down and them deciding if they should save the people or run for help. During the confusion the town knows about the creeper and warn them of the song and once he gets your scent your done.
This film added something new to the horror era of the 2000s. It created a fresh new villain called the creeper and we have a storyline that kind of gave the film that 1970’s feel. The creepiness of the “Jeepers Creepers” song and the effects of the monster villain brought something fresh to the screen. Sure some of the scenes are cheap and silly but the film is a good monster film. The character development alone is good. We have some blood, a sniffing flying monster, many bodies stitched together, mangled bodies and of course the beautiful Gina Philip.
Rating: The film gave us something new to watch and it does have some jumping parts if you have never seen it before. The creeper is fresh and new when it comes to monster villains. You have not seen this film go check it out.
