Jeepers Creepers

Despite the usual symptoms of sequelitis, Jeepers Creepers 2 delivers the goods for those who enjoyed the 2001 original--a group large enough to propel this sequel to a record-setting opening in August 2003. While establishing the flesh-eating "Creeper" as a new horror icon with frantic action and more elaborate special effects, writer-director Victor Salva follows the traditional formula, dispensing with plot almost altogether and focusing entirely on threat, menace, mayhem, and gore. That's likely to disappoint horror fans hoping for a more revealing exploration of the Creeper's origins (room for another sequel, perhaps?), and by trapping nondescript teens in a school bus attacked by the Creeper, Salva severely limits the movie's overall potential. Still, there's something to be said for straightforward shocks, and Jeepers Creepers 2 delivers enough of them to justify its profitable existence. --Jeff Shannon

Darry:
[after being run off the road by the creeper] Sounds alright. What?

Trish:
Like either of us would know.

Darry:
I know a little.

Trish:
A car makes a strange noise you just get new tape, Darry. You told me.

Darry:
I told you? I learned it from you.

Trish:
Jesus Christ.

Darry:
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait…Wait, I’m thinking past the point of my own selfish little existence now, okay? We’re both pretty damn sure what we saw him dump down that pipe, right?

Trish:
Yeah.

Darry:
What if it's someone still alive?

Trish:
What if it was?

Darry:
Someone who needs help!

Trish:
We can get help just as fast by getting to a phone.

Darry:
Do you have any idea how far we are from the nearest pay phone?

Trish:
We were just attacked Darry!

Darry:
And you don't even want to find out why? We look in the pipe, that's it.

Trish:
Is this your idea of a little adventure or something? This is why girls are smarter, okay.

Darry:
We look in the pipe; and if there's nothing there, nothing we can do we just drive on home and we call the cops. And you know that's what we should do?

Trish:
Bullshit I do.

Darry:
Bullshit you don't! Look me in the eye and tell me you can just drive away. Just drive off, leave whoever's back there, back there. Maybe find out later, they'd still be alive if you had just gone back.

Trish:
Don't try and make this about the right thing to do. You just want to go back there and see if there's something nasty at the end of that pipe.

Darry:
Okay, okay. What if it was you back there?

Trish:
I am not getting out of this car!

Darry:
You don't have to.

Trish:
I am not!
