First we have the hassle of the tarmac from an old truck that still has not revealed to us his driver. Then the two brothers watching fearful the mysterious Wizard to cast something like man on a tube … but unfortunately he sees them!

Horror Trivia

The original title of the film was "Here comes the Boogeyman". The title which prevailed, namely "Jeepers Creepers" is taken from a 1938 jazz song titled the which and hear a few times in the film.

The directed by Victor Salva is atmospheric but not so deep and thorough in order to boost the film. The suit of the monster is generally well-designed anadidontas a threatening picture. For the monster itself doesn't get a lot of information. We learn that it is an ancient demon who every 23rd spring comes out to feed for 23 days. Also sniffs the fear of his victims as well as which part of them wants to consume. Two new interpretations are adapted to the psiloanalafro style that strives to establish the Salva but without eliminating the sense of threat and terror from his work. However, the perceptive woman who approaches her brothers to warn plays completely eliminating its role. The basic problem, however, which deprives many points from the "Jeepers Creepers" is the defective script. Indeed watching the developments of events easily discern a lack of inspiration, some makeshift solutions came awkwardly into the plot to can advance the narrative (e.g. the fire at the Lair of the monster to discard items) and a general inability to come out full of explanations matters opened every so often. While there is originality, unfortunately not accompanied by imaginative fiction and tight-knit plot. In the field of gore did not have a complaint as it is in perfect balance so that the film be made friendly to a wide audience but at the same time not showing and harmless. We expected a lot more is true, especially when not lacked the high budget of the coefficients.

"Jeepers Creepers" tries to give an air of freshness into the horror genre but succeeds only partially. Itself like a horror film looks uneven and certainly wanted enough work yet, especially in the scenario.
