  1. Like its predecessor, Jeepers Creepers 2 is that rare modern horror film that remembers audiences are scared far more by what they don't see than by what they do. For that alone, horror fans should be thankful.

    Substantially better than its predecessor, even while staying strictly within the genre's well-defined boundaries.

    Viewers should hope Jeepers 2 is the final act in this series. The once-promising Creeper, who we see up close this time, has emerged as a garden-variety killer.

    The monster isn't very interesting (or scary) to look at: he's just an oily, overgrown gremlin.

    Horror movies don't have to make sense in the real world, but when you have to help their internal logic along this much, it's pretty much a cue for heckling -- or checking your watch.
  6. This low-budget, high-gore sequel can be effectively frightening at times, and just plain boring, too. The suspense builds, the blood gushes, the momentum dissipates. It's an unsatisfying mix.

    Hopefully, someone will grab the torch and, if not run with it, at the very least track down and set fire to the highly combustible prints of this inexcusably inept yawn-a-thon - it's not so much bad as it is unfathomable.

    Better than the first thanks to more characters and an exciting storyline as we follow a school bus of footballers cheerleaders stalked byBetter than the first thanks to more characters and an exciting storyline as we follow a school bus of footballers cheerleaders stalked by the creeper. There is just as much Horror as the first with a few more kills probably thrown in this one, but props to the opening scene as it really draws you in! A tad corny, perhaps, which is why the first is critically liked more, but I was entertained more with the sequel and Horror fans will get their kicks out of it Expand

    Just scene after scene of a poorly realised Creeper moving slowly towards a group of concerned looking adolescents.
