JEEPERS CREEPERS (2001 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Jeepers Creepers—a German/American collaboration—uniquely works its horror through dead bodies, two teen-agers, a creature called a Creeper, and a few clues gathered from a psychic. The film is horror, but not terrifying, which makes it a good pick for those middle of the road horror fans. Its sequel, Jeepers Creepers II, came out in 2003. Watch for Justin Long in some of his early works. Jeepers Creepers was his third theatrical film since 1999’s Galaxy Quest.

Storyline

Two teen-agers witness bloody body bags being dumped down an old corrugated pipe and investigate after the person who dumped them leaves.
