Consensus: Jeepers Creepers has a promising start. Unfortunately, the tension and suspense quickly deflates into genre cliches as movie goes on.

Stephen Hunter

If the reptile brain in you, that ugly little cluster of cerebral cells where all the destructive urges lie, needs a good jolt, Jeepers Creepers offers you just such a treat.

Bob Graham
San Francisco Chronicle

Jeepers Creepers is better setting things up than following through. It must resort to psychic mumbo-jumbo that has to be played straight and doesn't work.

One of the most terrifying horror movies to come along in years...

Slate

The plotting is a tad generic, and the film feels long at a scant 90 minutes. But the movie is good enough to put a chill into the late-summer air.

The only mystery to Jeepers Creepers is why Francis Ford Coppola chose to stamp his name on this grade-Z movie as producer.

Lucius Gore

One genuinely gets the sense from the first hour of this film that Salva is exorcising some of his own demons.

Feels too rote to inspire real terror.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A good way to find some genuinely creepy moments in a decade where they were short in supply.

Movie Gurus

One of those horror movies in which its characters do such unbelievably stupid things all the time that you literally want to shout at them.

Not a joy ride. Void of creepers unless you count the one in the title. Don't get on board only unless you can't find nothing else to entertain you.
