Siblings on a spring break drive back home cross paths with a supernatural creature as vicious as it is hungry.

Allowing their curiosity to get the best of them, the pair decide to investigate, discovering a makeshift cavern full of mutilated bodies and becoming the latest targets of a supernatural creature nearing the end of its yearly eating ritual as a direct consequence of their actions.

Review by Vito Pasquinelli (posted on 20-Feb-2005)

As the millenium starts to settle in, we can see towards a bright future for films. Jeepers Creepers isn't exactly the best horror film to come along, but with a fresh, new monster in the world of horror, a brilliant cast and plot, it's perhaps the best in about a decade.

The plot is when brother and sister, Trish and Darry (Gina Phillips & Justin Long) have an unsettling encounter with a battered old truck. Later on, when the truck continues up the road, they see it again at an old church, with the driver apparently dumping a blood-stained old bag down a pipe leading to an old celler.

A frenzied car chase then ensues, after the trucker decides that Trish and Darry are going to be his (or its) next victims. When they lose the truck, they go back and find a mini-version of Frankenstein's lair -- hundreds of bodies stitched together, and laboratory equipment to help preserve them.

Thus, the kids unleash a terrifying, flesh-consuming force. When the creature, humanoid thing, played fantastically by Jonathan Breck, is revealed, things go from bad to worse, and then they discover that the thing has taken rather a shine to one of them. Will they survive, or will they end as tasty morsels for The Creeper?
