'Jeepers Creepers 2'
(Jonathan Breck, Ray Wise, Nicki Lynn Aycox / R / 92 mins / MGM)
Overview:In this sequel to the 2001 original, a high-school basketball team's championship is spoiled in the worst way when their bus breaks down. It's really the work of that darn Creeper, who's still on his feeding frenzy and threatening to make meals out of players, coaches, and cheerleaders, all while the cops try to track down and kill (good luck with that) the winged beast.
Verdict: To be very honest, I could have easily - SO easily - torn this flick to shreds, but whereas it looks great and the special effects are decent, it's actually only really let down by scare tactics that leave a lot to be desired! 'Jeepers Creepers 2' just isn't quite as amusing as the original, but it easily bests the first film's prickly lasciviousness. Lacking the all-important character development we got in the first installment, which means we tend to care less about the multitude of feedings that the Creepers goes through, 'Jeepers Creepers 2' is plainly engaging, if not precisely challenging! But, it definitely is a fun monster movie!!
