Jeepers Creepers 2
Review (5/10)
(By Brendan Cullin)

Every 23 years for 23 days the Jeeper Creeper awakes and feasts on human body parts. Jeepers Creepers 2 takes us to the 22nd day of his feasting and the Creeper has already snacked on the son of a pissed off farmer (Ray Wise) and now has his sights set on a bus full of teenagers from a championship basketball team. The only problem is the pissed off farmer is on his way with a truck full off artillery and plans on shoving a really big harpoon through the Creepers asshole.

Jeepers Creepers 2 is not a horror movie. It is not scary - ever. There are a few parts that are exciting and the last twenty minutes have some pretty good action but there are more parts that are funny than there are parts that are scary. But that does not mean it was a bad movie. In fact, I found the movie, overall, moderately entertaining. I actually liked the Creeper and his "take no prisoners" style. This guy is one tough dude and he has a bit of a sense of humour and a really cute smile. And unlike the first movie, it does not take long for this movie to get going. Within ten minutes of the opening scene the world was minus one small-town farmboy. Even when the bus broke down, you figure there would have been some sort of build-up to people getting eaten, but the bus broke down and a few minutes later, one of the people that you figured would have been a main character was scooped up for dinner.

With that being said, one criticism I would have was that too much of the movie took place on the bus. It slowed the movie down. And it made it too easy and unexciting for Creepy to pick off a few of the teens. Okay, I have a few more criticisms: The Creeper got way too much screen time. It took away some of the mystery that surrounded him in the first movie. Who was the unhelpful psychic chick and where did her mysterious psychic power come from? Were the racial and homophobic undertones of the movie really necessary? It made a few of the kids in the movie really unlikeable and the Creeper much more likeable - at one point in the movie, I just wanted for them all to die and for the movie to end, happily, I might add. What happened to all the kids who ran out of the bus? Out of the 7 or 8 of them, only four were accounted for. Why were the guys pissing in the field standing so close to each other when they were pissing? Trust me people, guys do not do this. When we are pissing, we want to be as far apart from each other as we possibly can. Maybe in director Victor Silva's world guys piss so close to each other they can hold hands, but in my world, I piss alone or I don't piss at all. The plethora of shirtless guys in the movie sort of left me scratching my head. The jocks on the bus being shirtless was almost forgiveable, but the punk at the very end of the movie with no shirt on, I don't know man. And then I read all this stuff after I have seen the movie about Victor Salva's checkered past and it really makes me wonder not only about the naked boys in the movie but the whole pissing scenario and the fact that the Creeper seems to have a specific interest in these young, half-naked boys. But I really don't feel like getting into a debate about all that shit. I'm just here to review a movie, that's all.

All I can say about Jeepers Creepers 2 is, do not go to this movie expecting to be scared because it ain't going to happen. If you feel like wasting a Friday night or a Saturday afternoon checking out a mildly entertaining movie, go see this movie. It has it's moments but it isn't anything special. Besides an exciting opening twenty minutes and an exciting closing twenty minutes, there's not a whole helluva lot that is good to say about 75 minutes of movie between the opening and closing. An average movie, at best.
