MB Blog Reader Appreciation Blog: Jeepers Creepers

Fear Street, this one goes out to you.

Think Back to 2001...A gem....called Jeepers Creepers:

Remember it?

You know something, I find that Jeepers Creepers really got a bad rep. Maybe it's the name? Too rhymy? Is rhymy a word? Now it is.

The movie starred Justin Long (Drag Me To Hell, Dodgeball, He's Just Not That Into You, Drew Barrymore's Boyfriend, and the Mac Guy) and Gina Phillips, who I never heard of but she's in a lot of TV Movies. Regardless, the casting for this movie was great because do they look like brother and sister or what?

Are they really related? I'd believe it.

Anyway, this bro and sis duo is driving home from college or something, and they see a mysterious man throwing bags of bodies down a well or ditch. They end up of course getting involved and mayhem ensues.

We find out that the "man" is really "The Creeper" an inhuman beast that feeds on humans to make new body parts:

Kind of looks like The Undertaker, no?

He has wings too, btw.

Now, I have to admit, there are two things about this film that kind of made it feel is the stupid song. I get it, Jeepers Creepers...It's the song and the movie title. But like, do we need to keep hearing it? And how does someone always end up playing it? What year are we in?

Second is the psychic woman who is calling them to warn them. How'd she have the number? Fine, I get it, she's psychic...but why didn't she call all of those other poor people for the past 23 days or whatever?

Anyway, the movie's ending is kind of sad, I won't indulge you, but you should def see it. A nice change of pace if you ask me.

There was a sequel made, Jeepers Creepers 2, which I have not seen yet. Is it any good? I read the synopsis on Wikipedia and it seems "eh". And then of course, we'll have Jeepers Creepers 3: The Cathedral, coming out soon.

"Fear Street, this one goes out to you." Awesome :p

The psychic lady is the only thing about this movie that really drives me insane. I can't stand her!!

Jeepers Creepers 2 isn't the worst movie ever, but the first one is better.

I have mixed thoughts on the third one. Who knows how it'll turn out...

Fear Street, your previous comment inspired me to blog about it! I have to see the 2nd has two characters with the same name in it? WHOA.

Phelps, I'm so happy you like it!

Stay away from the sequel. I repeat, stay AWAY from the sequel....

The first one was tons of fun though.
