Jeepers Creepers 2 Review
Written by: Moviemaven
Every 23 years for 23 days, it gets to eat. And every 23 minutes a crappy horror film is made. I thought the first in the Creeper installment was fun and original, but this is one sequel that fell way short of its namesake. I'm not even sure I know where to begin. First, we have a kid that gets swiped from his family's farm. This causes his dad to go MacGyver with a truck and some farming tools because he wants revenge. Then we have a busload of high school football players stranded on the highway and laid out like a can of sardines. Along comes the Creeper and to his dismay, he forgot his can opener. But he sniffs them out (a particularly comical scene) and begins picking them off one by one. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the cheerleader turned psychic that gets visions from former victims telling her all about the Creeper. But either she is excellent at reading between the lines or we only got the Cliff's Notes version of her dreams cause she knows a lot more than she should.
Anyway, as we know from the original, there is no way to kill it because it merely replenishes damaged body parts with those of its victims. But I guess someone forgot to tell the distraught dad. Just when you think the kids are done for, here comes Farmer Jack like Quint after Jaws with a Post Puncher 500. Battle, battle, battle...we flash forward 23 years. Now we are back with Farmer Jack where you can view the Bat Out of Hell for a mere five dollar charge. But you better look quick because he'll be hungry again real soon. My only question is why not take off his nose? If he sniffs his prey to find the necessary organ donors, then he won't be able to find them. And he won't be able to replace it because he won't be able to find them. Just a thought.
