The only familiar face in Jeepers Creepers 2 is Ray Wise from the cult series 'Twin Peaks'. The Creeper is a cool and intense creature, the way his appearance can change based off lighting and wardrobe is cool. There are some good disturbing scenes many of which are enhanced by the films great score. This sequel never even comes close to having any suspense like that. The bus is brought to a halt by a shredded tire, from which the driver, Betty Borman Diane Delano , extracts an oddly fashioned weapon that appears to be made of bone. As well as Director Victor Salva.
We are trapped in a broken down school bus out on East 9. I won't spoil it for newcomers, except to say that it's a witty conclusion to both of the first two films. A girl on the bus begins having psychic visions and learns a little about the Creeper from one of the kids who died in the first movie. In this, the Creeper targets a school bus on his last night to feed. Great to see this kind of new Horror type movie other then the old style crap. Instead, he is waiting for him to awake??? Just smiles and moking his preys before eating them.
The tempo picks up with the arrival of Jack Taggart and son, who have quickly evolved from farmers to hunters—and Taggart has found his Moby Dick. Oh, Jesus, we're in trouble then. The action is wonderful and it has a healthy dose of humorous moments well, they may not be humorous to some but to me they are :. Deciding to discover what was dumped down there, Darry discovers a huge disturbing hideout full of modified bodies. I thought that Trish should have been knocked out to awaken only to find her brother gone. I think the film is worth it, and the presentation is first-rate. At least it allows Justin Long to reprise his Darry character from the first film, appearing in ghostly form to offer warnings and information to one of the characters here.
Overall, this suffers the same fate as many sequels, lacking the originals' freshness and in truth it doesn't give the viewer too many people for whom they can really root. Luke Edwards , run helplessly in pursuit through the cornfields. They're a team, a family and they're sticking with each other no matter what. The creeper is one of the best movie icons out there in my opinion. The Creeper portrayed once again by Jonathan Breck is a far-fetched new horror icon but it does bring terror in the most isolated outlands of America. Salva wraps it up in a neat package that stops just shy of wearing out its welcome and Bennet Salvay's rich score leavens the scares wonderfully throughout.
Where is the tension therefore if a creature is virtually indestructible? It's still a lot of fun. After failing to raise anyone by either cell phone or radio, Betty and the coaches decide to limp along on the five remaining tires, but one of the cheerleaders, Minxie Nicki Aycox , has a dream in which both Billy Taggart and Darry Jenner Justin Long from the first movie warn her about the Creeper. Since this is the last day of his feast, he scurries to find people to collect. It was executive producer Francis Ford Coppola who suggested the idea of setting the sequel in the days immediately following the first film, during the same 23-day feeding cycle of the film's titular monster. So, most of the film is spent with all these high school kids on the bus and all they do is argue about stupid stuff. While it may lack some of the unique elements of the original film like the Creeper's truck, the title song, etc. That movie redefined horror and its settings, which instead of the usual ominous darkness, and confined spaces, took place mostly out in the open and in broad daylight.
I really resent that talent and genius have no say in who they inhibit. Creeper picks off various members of the bus, which is the usual array of annoyingly obnoxious teenagers. A group of homosexual basketball stars are returning home from a successful championship, when the creeper, this big gooey guy with a vagina on his nose starts eating them all. Let's have him back in a dream sequence.

There's nothing more to say.
The only flaw in the film was the reason for them to return to the church where they saw the mysterious man. The scene where he was staring into the bus was terrific. He makes twisted movies, horror films. To their misfortune, the Creeper Jonathan Breck is one the loose as he is on the final day of his 23 days eating cycle, so this ruthless hunter will do whatever is necessary to find food before his time runs out. Victor Salva was convicted of raping one of his 12 year old co stars in one of his earlier films. The movie also introduced us to a truly terrifying creature that could give any other slasher a run for their money. Victor has brought back a return to the old style creature feature films that I loved in the day and hope to see him make some more in the future.
The whole suspense and uneasy feel is brought back from the original. The effects are also really good. Let's have him lose his head in one scene and replace it with one of the heads of the school children. It should be sprouting and just beginning to grow. They're typical bickering annoying siblings, not to mention they make some dumb decisions. As its 23 days of flesh-eating comes to an end, the Creeper has embarked on its final feeding frenzy. Most already own the original film on Blu-ray, and they now have to re-buy it just to get the sequel, although admittedly the price for this double feature is no more than what many individual catalog titles cost these days.
