A lot of the reason why this film didn't perform better at the Box Office is due to the troubled past of it's director. Victor Salva is a pedophile who served time for molesting a teenage boy. When the original film was released this information wasn't too well known. After that film's success Salva was sued and the knowledge of his crime came to light. Should the film be based on the crimes of it's director? That's a question that's hard to answer. Roman Polanski was convicted of child molestation in the 70s and continues to have a successful career.

"Geez, so much animosity for a film that was actually fairly original compared to the goop we've been seeing. I liked the low-budget 80's horror feel to the original "Jeepers Creepers". And I liked the serial killer in this film who turns out to be an ancient evil that lives off the body parts of its victims. There were times during this film I was on the edge of my seat with suspense. And the heroine is one of the strongest leading lady parts since Ripley in "Aliens". So why are so many people put off? Maybe it's because we've all become jaded with Hollywood. Think about it. When we were kids growing up, most everything we saw at the theaters seemed new and bigger than life. You just knew you were going to see something exciting, even mind-expanding. But it all seems to have been done again and again by Hollywood until there's nothing to do but make sequels and re-makes. The first few films you saw inspired by Romero's "Dead" films all seemed like exciting ways of telling the same story. Then along comes a movie like "28 Days Later", and everyone is angry because we don't follow down the same old path and have the "monsters" be Romero's zombies. I think the same goes for "Jeepers Creepers". The first few dozen times you see Michael Myers, or Jason, or Freddy kill several hundred young and healthy teens, you think it's new and fresh. But Hollywood is made up now of the grownups who were fed on these genres, and sub-genres, and sub-basement genres. And when they make a film, it always seems like more of the same. But "Jeepers Creepers", though really only Freddy and Jason and Michael dressed in wings and a top hat, still seems fresher to me than say "Ghost Ship", or "Thirteen Ghosts". And with the cornfields and old lady with cats, and the out of the way township, it all seems to have a kind of "Stephen-King-esque" feel to it. A dark peek into a nightmare that's killing you. ..."
Jeepers Creepers, where'd you get that...head!

"The 23 days are almost over, and the Creeper is not done feeding. Stalking the farmland, it takes just about anyone it can find alone. But, when it finds a busload of high schoolers heading home from the Big Game, it begins to look like feasting time. But, the Creeper has made an enemy, Jack Taggart, Sr., who wants payback for the loss of his son. Can Taggart defeat the Creeper? I mean, while there are still some students left?
OK, I am not a huge horror fan, and most of the movies leave me cold. But, I love Jeepers Creepers 2! I liked the monster, who is horrifying and can take a licking and keep on handing out punishment. I mean, the punishment this creature takes is horrifying, even as he keeps coming back. And, I loved Taggart, who does not just hide in a hole like a rabbit, but determines to stand up and be a man, no matter the cost. And, I liked the kids, who provide the horror and adventure as they struggle to survive, reacting in their own different and believable ways.
Yeah, if you knew me, you would be surprised that I like this movie. I don't just like it, I love it, and I highly recommend it! Is there going to be a Jeepers Creepers 3? I hope so!!"

After the events of "Jeepers Creepers", our no good old friend the Creeper is still starving for more humans. There is a legend about him that every 25 years for 23 days in spring, a bus filled with a high school football team and cheerleaders brakes down somewhere as they are stranded till night to find out there is a deadly monster after them. Only the students with a local farmer must try to destroy the unstoppable killer once and for all time.
Action-packed sequel to the suprise horror thriller hit of 2001! the same director/writer/creator Victor Salvia delivers more goods into this picture with better special effects and more heartpounding thrills.
The Special Edition DVD is great! it's got some killer extras like two audio commentaries, featurettes, documentary, storyboards of not filmed scenes, two photo galleries and the trailer.
A nice leave-your-brain at the door and have fun movie for every horror fan."
