I found it much more entertaining than any of the Scream movies or the I Know What You Did Last Summer series.

I was actually looking forward to this film, because I enjoyed the first Jeepers Creepers, and thought it had the potential for an exciting sequel.

The story is pretty cliché for the horror genre.

IF you like puzzling movies with answers not easily found, so that when you leave the theater you are wondering, WHAT WAS THAT MOVIE I JUST SAW ABOUT??

I cannot wait for JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 so that Salva can have a chance toredeem himself from this truly ordinary yawn inducer.

they should chuck the first one, while a little entertaining its nowhere near as good as part 2, which amazes me they decided to make a sequel.

Everyone told me not to see it, everyone said it was really stupid and pointless.

Back at the bus, the adult supervisors decide to keep on moving one tyre short, just at a slower pace, only once again "Kapow", there goes another tyre and they are resigned to the fact that they will be offroad from here on in.

Intense, Bloody, in a word awful .

The entire movie revolves around a bunch of jocks on a bus, stranded on the road,which alone is beyond lame and boring.

Predictable Fair .

What it is, however, is extremely formulaic and predictable.

At times exciting, with more than enough violence and effective scares make this good fun if you're willing to pardon the annoyingly one-note characters and banal dialogue.

That combined with a poorly contrived, unimaginative, scenario and dull, emotive actors made this one a real snoozer.

The dialogue was corny and the scenes were so repetitive.

The students are played by a big group of anonymous, mostly mediocre actors, but they nevertheless grew on me and I wanted lots of them to make it, which made exciting scenes toward the end pretty suspenseful.

It was funny and interesting, scary and suspenseful.

At any rate the first 30 minutes are well done and engaging, after that its the standard nowadays horror trash that the rest of the first Jeepers Creepers was and that way to many horror films these days are through out.

From the cliché Jock characters, the douche bag boyfriend, the cheerleaders, to the 'nerds'.

The majority of the first 3/4 of the film was simply boring (ex: repetitious and tedious scenes, including some where the characters literally shouted the same words over and over and over again, until you wanted them to die, just so they would shut up).

In the end, Creeper2 is silly, disappointing, mundane and, more often than not, simply boring.

I mean this one was more exciting then the first, and we got to know the creeper a little.

Seeing them deal with the Creeper outside is pretty entertaining.

This one is a more "american" cliché horror movies with some sport students from a high school team who try to survive and escape from the monster.

This is: Lame, horribly acted, horribly written, stupid, unsuspenseful, predictable, and not entertaining at all.

I mean, this movie is just so boring and almost unbearable to watch, I really almost fell asleep.

Maybe it's the script, or the acting, or perhaps we saw this whole plot drawn out two years ago in JC1.

Creeper2 is silly, disappointing, mundane and, more often than not, simply boring.

The biggest drawbacks, however, were the half-nude jocks runnin around (c'mon, is this opposite cliche day?

For all the reminding of Victor Salva's criminal past, shouldn't people be asking why it's taken a criminal deviant to improve on the department-store-giftwrapped endings we're all so bored with in horror movies?

This time around Victor Salva has taken the JEEPERS CREEPERS franchise and gone from a strict horror formula to one of action and made a nicely engaging monster movie.

I'm giving it a 6 because, basically, I was bored more than interested.

But the horror plot is matched with something even more intriguing…the characters inside the bus.

There´s no story, no plot, no meaning, no horror.

Most disappointing of all, is that the basic plot from the first film had the potential to ensure a thrilling and successful franchise.

The characters have little to no development throughout, and for the most part are bland or frankly, just unlikable.

Don't expect a lot of suspense here though, as it relies too much on gore and body counts to be really and truly intriguing.

The film starts out with an intense opening leaving us hopeful.

The movie is just boring at the end of the day.

Scenes that were supposed to be suspenseful and scary were more towards the humorous and lame side.

The special effects and production values are pretty good, but that just illustrates what a waste of money this entire production is.

Where it doesn't work so much as a straight horror thriller this time around, what with nothing new to be discovered about the startling "Creeper", returning director/writer Victor Salva ups the ante on the gore and stylized action, resulting in an enjoyable monster movie that doesn't skimp out on the bloodshed audiences would expect from a horror sequel, especially one that has to live up to such a frightening experience as the first film.

While it's as raucous and entertaining as one could hope for, it's also a surprisingly conventional effort from writer-director Victor Salva, whose best work (POWDER, RITES OF PASSAGE, etc.) has always focused on small groups of characters caught up in extreme situations.

I watched it only because I was bored and needed a movie to watch.

The story is so rich, that you are on the edge of your seat from minute one to the grand finale.

This movie felt like a 10 minute episode of SpongeBob season 6 as it was very boring.

The first half of the film was too boring for the most interested horror fan, it simply didn't go anywhere.

I found myself rooting for the creeper in this, as the other characters are all dull and have no real point in the story, apart from the fact there food!

Empty and Lifeless .

After a while I found this film to be slowpaced and boring.

Basically, the only scenes worth watching are the ones where the actor from the first film appears.

it's not really scary, has its dull spots and you could care less about the characters and situations.

The corn field scene was entertaining, especially when the Creeper was on the scarecrow stand.


That was a waste of time because he really didn't do anything.

The effects are first rate and the cinematography is simply stunning.

It's far from a great tense or original movie but nevertheless it is all good and enjoyable to watch, especially when you are in to the genre.

It has that same "classic" scary movie theme to it -- intense moments, funny lines, plenty of action, and some scenes where you just say "cool".

Jeepers 2 was suprisingly an entertaining film at the 1 hour mark.

The way the monster can die is confusing and the end is way too predictable.

I agree that Jeepers Creepers 2 was not as good as the first movie and it lost some of its originality and mystery about the Creeper, but I still think that overall it was a movie worth watching.

It was exciting, with heart pounding suspence, and a little humor mixed in.

I was caught of guard by part one and really enjoyed it.

As for the cast, bland and instantly forgettable.

And totally predictable.

However unlike the previous two rentals, JP2 was at least entertaining.

It was scary, compelling, gripping and leaves you with a cliffhanger.

*Yawn* .

Above Average and Entertaining Horror Film .

This probably is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of bad movies!

Dialogue starts off snappy and the horror genre gets subtly subverted (a gay hero and black guys that don't get killed first?

It's also one of those rare action/horror pics that's equal parts exciting and scary.

It still has plenty of the very suspenseful moments and quite original twists wich made the first one so great and is worth the watch for all that: it just might have less purity and integrity than the first one that's all.

The creature started off as this creepy figure like in part one only to end up this really lame predictable giant gremlin.

Don't waste your time with this mess like I did.

Whilst this type of creature feature is engaging throughout, the film, much like its predecessor, will undoubtedly suffer from not sticking within the confines of the serial killer format.

When he's there, things are exciting and unpredictable.

If you haven't seen it, expect the trite screaming "teen" actors on screen most of the time, since all of the adults are killed 5 minutes after their bus breaks down.

Even though I enjoyed it's stupidness, don't watch it.

Breck as the Creeper rocks, he's more charismatic and enjoyable than in the first film and added a good amount of character to the role.

This is a very entertaining and fun horror film.

Beginning with a tiresomely drawn-out corn-field sequence, in which this bogeyman pretends to be a scarecrow before flying off with the farmer's boy, we move on to a whole school-bus full of teens, singing a team song as they drive along.

My mood alternated between boredom and amusement as the various chase scenes unfolded and then folded with a clunk.

It does take a lot of suspension of disbelief to enjoy this movie, but if one can accomplish this, "Jeepers Creepers II" does reward us with some exciting moments and some extremely amusing money shots.

There are all sorts of problems with this movie but I'm going to place the majority of the blame on the screenplay, which just takes all the fun and originality from the original movie and throws it out and instead we're given a bunch of boring characters and a pretty bland situation.

The opeining defines boredom and the film drags on and on and never even approaches the original film's genuine frightful feeling.

Creeper showed us a creature who moved in a finite, but varied world, wreaking havoc in delightfully unpredictable ways.

The rest of the film, though, is a boring, predictable mess.

It's certainly an entertaining film and theres lots of hot guy eye candy.

Seriously, the characters are generic, predictable and bad actors compared to Gina Phillips and Justin Long.

The performances are so riveting that you will honestly believe you are in the bus.

The film ends with a (somewhat boring) cliffhanger.

I'll take the man in the Creeper Suit over many of today's cheesey and usually boring CGI effects.

They are designed merely to try and keep us on the edge of our seats.

I also enjoyed its fast-moving pace and found it interesting to see how the teens reacted in a life-or-death situation without an adult.

You'll be on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

Jeepers Creepers 2 was as entertaining and shocking as the first.

Some of the actors overacted a bit, some part of the movie was boring.

This is definetly one of the worst movies of all time!

the surroundings become boring very quickly and the concept runs thin within 20 minutes.

Jeepers Creepers 2 The Second Movie In The Jeepers Creepers Trilogy A Good Movie Enjoyed it A Lot

The same can be said for the rest of the film; it has promise but the tedious buildup lacks any kind of payoff.

But that's possibly the cheesiest, most boring horror movie of the last five years, so I looked for something else.

To summarize, the film is an entertaining and very well-directed scary movie that makes a worthy sequel to the original one.

See it if you like stupid, pointless and un-scary movies.

Once again Salva delivers good directorial touches and an entertaining story.

Worst Movie Ever Made!!!.

Emotional and exciting as the characters wonder what to do to solve their problems.

Jeepers Creepers 2 keeps you on the edge of your seat, and left some people that I know of freaking out, when they lay down in their bed at night.

It was entertaining and director Victor Salva didn't give in to his typical cinematic fetishes (I won't mention them all here - last time I did my review wasn't approved).

"Jeepers Creepers 2" may be one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

The rest of this is silly indeed, just boring scenes of vehicle chases and people shooting or harpooning the Creeper with scant regard for retaining the audience's interest.

It isn't important enough for you to know who the people were in this film because it didn't do a lot, there were a lot of frightening moments which made it enjoyable and the updates they have done on the creeper to change his entire look were the best two parts, I actually enjoyed watching the making of the film then sitting through it!

But it's a wee bit entertaining.

she was totally pointless!...

If you leave logic behind, this is quite an intense and well-elaborated scary movie.

For starters this had absolutely no plot, i just didnt understand the point of it at all.

Much like the first movie, Jeepers Creepers II is a formulaic horror flick possessing thinly-drawn characters, stilted performances, and mediocre directing.

The first track is hilarious, entertaining and goofy, with Salva talking about various behind-the-scenes stories and the cast recalling they're days on set.

There are just far too many useless things in this movie, that made it such a waste of my time.

However, instead of this developing the evil being, it desensitizes us and quite frankly, I was as bored of him as I was of Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees after their second kick at the can.

Joking aside this movie bored me..I didn't even sit through the whole movie as "Cabin fever" was on...

The Creeper (Jonathan Breck) returns to terrorize a group of young high schoolers on the empty highway.

Waste of time .

The movie starts off slow and by the end it's just agonising.

Take for example the slow capture animation of the creeper, which was pathetic, and the scenes of him flying really looked aged and something from an 80s film.

My only fear is that if future films are made,that they will take the b-rating downfall,and become plotless wastes of time.

The script is very poorly written, which pulls the rest of the movie down; the dialog is very repetitive and unimaginative, and far too many of the situations were predictable.

After the first half I was considering truing it off but thankfully it became more tense and exciting with emotional dialogue from the characters and a few twists and an interesting ending making a good second half.

The 'shocks' are so predictable that they could be prefaced by a scripted blank like those old silent movies.

The Creeper is a great character and deserves to get some more screen time, and while the first one certainly had its flaws, it was entertaining throughout, particularly during the first half.

It was entertaining from begining to end.

Campy Horror - Entertaining .

The opening sequence, with a father and his two sons working in a field, and the Creeper disturbingly imitating a scarecrow before coming to life and snatching one of the kids, was really exciting and the shots of the Creeper dashing through the long stalks of corn were very well done, and really .

Noticeable here however is the presence of Twin Peaks cult actor Ray Wise in this one, who pretty much served for me as a comic relief (just see the way too long extreme close up of him at the beginning).

But when he's not on screen, things drag out, with the constant bickering between characters and clunky dialogue really testing patience.

The subtly of the Creeper from the first film directly transfers and makes this a scary and intense opening.

It is a decent follow up to the original that is worth watching to pass the time.

Maybe I had my hopes up too much; but as it was, it was too predictable with no likable characters, a story filled with holes and just not particularly fun, scary or interesting to watch.

) The runtime of the movie is too long, and it feels long.

Well, I'm bored just writing about this poor excuse for a movie.

Not especially creepy, no story line as such and characters that you felt nothing for.

Appalling script, below average directing (which let's face it makes it pretty damn poor), uninspiring cinematography and incompetent editing.

ok, whatever, that can be looked over, but this was just plain dumb, not exciting, predictable.

or even that entertaining.

The beginning was moving and entertaining.

What made the movie worse, was that after the first hour, I got tired of making fun of it and the film became unbearable.

(spoilers)i was forced to see this movie cuz my friends told me its creepy and awesome, and thrilling.

Stunning .

The creeper is faster, badder, and uglier than before, and is around during the whole movie keeping you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

"Jeepers Creepers 2" is certainly one of the most pointless horror movies I have ever seen.

Personally, I would have preferred Ray Wise to be in it more, as he's clearly the best part of the film, but it's still an enjoyable little horror flick nonetheless.

The film is technically good, there is some good camera work, and the pace is well kept - but all this is wasted bacause of the empty and lifeless story.

The final showdown between Creeper and the old man is breathtaking.

What a waste of money.

Opposite to most directors nowadays, Salva perfectly knows how to create suspenseful situations and emotional devastation.

While yeah, that does sound lame, it is rather predictable.

It was predictable(unlike the first, the first was NOT predictable at all) and it was badly written.

Still, very few scenes can match the fun of the attacks on the bus stranded on the roadside with this one really getting a lot of suspense from the continuous assaults that really work to a thrilling climax of building terror at the increasingly flimsy manner of keeping it out as the desperation to get away really works well with the copious action within the scenes.

The special effects are poor, the pacing erratic, the death scenes are boring and there's to much unintentional humour.

It switches from trying to be suspenseful and scary to being purposly comical.

It has it's exciting and entertaining moments, it's a somewhat decent popcorn flick.

Enjoyable horror .

BAD acting, BAD writing, BAD directing, and a HORRIBLE plot make "Jeepers Creepers 2" one of the worst movies ever made.

Homoerotic undertones collide with one boy's gay bashing comments, add to that a dull script, poor direction and it's far to easy to 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' this film…and I was doing that in the first 5 minutes!!

This predictable, bland "horror" movie is really a piece of garbage.

& MGM studios always does a sequel to a moderate hit - **cough-Agent Cody Banks, Barbershop-cough** there just better not be 5-10 more sequels like the Freddy, Jason & Michael myers, cause those sequels suck & are pointless & so repetitive.


She's completely discarded while her brother returns as a pointless cadaver very briefly.

Anyway it not all that bad, the movie is pretty entertaining and you will know what happen what happen to the creepers on exact 23 days come to an end.

Save your money and run!!!

To be honest, if you do fall asleep during this film, you will not miss much.

That's what makes both films worth watching.

What a waste of money.

The notion of a Jeepers Creepers sequel was an exciting one.

Those audiences who prefer their contemporary Horror to be grounded in 'reality' with relatively human antagonists will once again be disappointed and will find little to interest them in the follow up or cling on to since the Creeper has been dragged center stage and bears little resemblance to the standard serial killers they had once expected.

The script is banal, the characterizations non existent, the actingbelow par (except for the lady bus driver who unhappily meets her endfar too soon), and the direction amateurish.

I enjoyed it the whole way through.

Possibly one of the worst Movies ever .

This one, I am sorry to say, is a total waste of time.

Whilst The Birds and Jaws immediately spring to mind, Salva's first sequel serves up a series of startling FX sequences, suspenseful attacks and delicious protagonists for the Creeper to prey upon on his final night.

I thought the first film was more scary but Jeepers Creepers 2 was more entertaining and i've been watching this on a loop for about a day now.

The characters are empty...

usually i'll give a film props if it was entertaining.

An engaging monster movie.

So I guess this flick is worth watching.

That whole sequence is very exciting, as it features tons of many new ideas to trapping a creature that its ingenuity and creativity is really new for these kinds of films nearly triumphs over the fun created from the extensive running, hiding and just-plain frenetic action that occurs as the creature goes about trying to pick them off in the meantime.

Not as scary or original as the first, but a worthy and creepy effort nonetheless, with some riveting scares and decent performances from all involved.

I really enjoyed the plot twist of the first movie and this movie proved to be more exciting than the first.

Anyone can agree that Jeepers Creepers 2 is breathtaking, heart stopping, and just good old fashioned solid film making.

A bad, boring, overlong movie - and it's not even gory or suspenseful.

Jeepers Creepers made me smile more than jump, Maybe because I am a silly person and I thought all the "intense" scenes were just another laugh- moment.

Compared to other horror films, especially Jeepers Creepers (which is entertaining)I thought this was a real let down!

But, the Creeper looses steam by becoming more confusing than mysterious.

This probably isn't a classic movie, but I can truthfully say I enjoyed the special effects in it more than those in The Matrix, Spiderman with Tobey McGuire and the second X-Men movie, which were all about as exciting as watching paint dry.

The film's story is more than the typical monster movie, and it avoids the typical cliché of a sequel that's that same as the first.

It was fun to watch and entertaining.


This quick effort at squeezing out a few bucks before the creature flies off into the sunset for 23 years is so obvious and predictable you'll be reciting the lines along with the cast.

And speaking of school buses, could we get any more cliche, or more contrived?

Like it's predecessor, I found Jeepers Creepers 2 enjoyable for the first 40 minutes and even found the Creeper a better bad guy (the fact that he was driving that stupid truck was pretty much where the first movie lost me).

e boring and stupid, with no scares to mention,number two was neither lame, boring or stupid, but a genuinely creepy movie.

The drama that unravels between the characters is sometimes more exciting the actual horror of the creeper, because the writing is so fresh and realistic.

The soundtrack was well put together as it tries to build suspense as to what will happen next but the problem is this film will be highly predictable to most so not much suprise.

DVD has an entertaining commentary bu the director and the cast members.

I never saw the original, but if this is similar, then it must be just as boring.

It's originality was obvious and it's gradual evolution throughout the film made it a suspenseful modern masterpiece.

Lame sequel to the unexpected hit horror flick about a batman monster wreaking havoc on unsuspecting and idiotic teenagers to feed before another 23 year hibernation (don't ask; it's not explained here nor in the first feeble effort).

The plot was good, but not great, I felt that a little more action could be added, because sometimes the movie gets boring that we need more action.

Everything's predictable, so much so that it was funny.

It was just plain boring.

It is very entertaining.

Nice bit of stunning contrast, these kids going from supremely confident to almost literally out-of-their-minds with fear.

As simple as the story is, it drags on way too long.
