Jeepers Creepers 2 is a 2003 American horror film written and directed by Victor Salva, produced by American Zoetrope, Capitol Films, Myriad Pictures and distributed by United Artists, a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer division.

Summary

A couple of day’s after the events of the first movie, The Creeper is still hunting for food and targets a school bus full of helpless teenagers.

Bad Qualities

  1. It mostly lacks the suspense build that it’s predecessor had.
  2. The characters are completely unlikable and clichéd that it makes it hard to root for most of them, especially Scotty.
  3. Minxie is a complete rehash of Jezelle from the first movie since they both have psychic powers and are able to figure out what the Creeper wants.
  4. We don’t get as much action or suspense build-up as the first movie as most of it is just the main characters arguing and trying to survive while in a broken-down bus.
  5. It recycles some of the elements the first movie had.
  6. The teenage characters argue with each other SO MUCH in this movie.
  7. The characters drop so many F-bombs that it just gets irritating.
  8. An unneeded brief subplot where one of the main characters has a gay attraction for another character.
  9. Some scenes come off more hilariously disturbing then it does scary
    • Like the scene where one of the characters gets their head torn off by the Creeper’s wing and starts moving around hysterically which is also a basic rip-off of the decapitation scene in Friday The 13th.
    • The scene where the Creeper is picking out a particular teenage inside the bus to eat feels like something out of a cheesy comedy flick when it was meant to be a suspenseful moment.
  10. A pointless cameo by Justin Long who returns to play his character, Darry, from the first movie and has nothing else to do with the film then to be a part of Minxie’s dream sequence.

Good Qualities

  1. There are several of the teenage characters that are pretty decent and likable, like Rhonda, Bucky and D.
  2. Jack Taggart Sr. and his son are pretty decent characters to watch as well.
  3. The acting is not too bad and the actors give some great performances, like Jonathan Breck who returns to play the man-eating Creeper.
  4. Some of the scenes are awesome, like the scene where the Creeper chases the main characters through a large landscape or the scene where the Creeper forms a new head with Dante’s decapitated head.
  5. The opening scene where the Creeper disguises itself as a scarecrow, runs through a cornfield and kidnaps a farmer boy.
  6. The cliffhanger ending is okay and leaves it open for a sequel.
  7. Some of the Creeper's weaponry, especially the shurikens, are pretty cool.
  8. Creepy, yet good soundtrack.
