JEEPERS CREEPERS REVIEWED

“Jeepers Creepers” works as a rather inventive horror film from the early 00s. Playing with the idea of a phantom stranger picking victims off the road, the film allows that idea to flourish to an organ harvesting nightmare. I remember the film being quite a big deal in 2001, as Francis Ford Coppola was giving the film his blessing by producing it. Coppola dabbled in and out of horror, but this seemed to be a big deal. Then, I saw it and hated upon theatrical viewing. It would take years and growing admiration for the world of the film that allowed me to love what I was seeing.

Darry and Trish aren’t particularly interesting lead characters, but they get the job done. They take us through this messed up beast haunting Florida every 23 years. More importantly, they allow us to buy into the terror of an ancient evil that will never quit. Then, there’s The Creeper. The quiet stalking, ability to blend into his background and the Buffalo Bill style body taxidermy is stunning. However, the sequel is better.
