Every 23rd Spring, for 23 days, it gets to eat. Today is the last day of a horrific feeding frenzy and the Creeper is still hungry for more!
On a deserted highway, a school bus is carrying a basketball team and its cheerleaders back from a triumphant game. The bus breaks down on a lonely stretch of road and the thrill of victory is quickly replaced by terror, as the journey becomes a road trip to Hell. As the sun sets, the Creeper descends on the bus and picks off the athletes one by one, sniffing out his victims. Will any of them survive, or will they all provide the Creeper with another horrific helping of mouth-watering morsels, in this nerve-jangling horror?
Despite the usual symptoms of sequelitis, Jeepers Creepers 2 delivers the goods for those who enjoyed the 2001 original. While establishing the flesh-eating "Creeper" as a new horror icon with frantic action and more elaborate special effects, writer-director Victor Salva follows the traditional formula, dispensing with plot almost altogether and focusing entirely on threat, menace, mayhem, and gore. That's likely to disappoint horror fans hoping for a more revealing exploration of the Creeper's origins (room for another sequel, perhaps?) and by trapping nondescript teens in a school bus attacked by the Creeper, Salva severely limits the movie's overall potential. Still, there's something to be said for straightforward shocks and Jeepers Creepers 2 delivers enough of them to justify its profitable existence. --Jeff Shannon
