Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"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."
‑ Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle
"One of the most terrifying horror movies to come along in years..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The only thing about this movie that really made me shudder is that we are probably going to be deluged with a bunch of crappy sequels for it."
‑ Brian Mckay,
"The story hits a wall with an abrupt, dismal ending."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"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."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"The only mystery to Jeepers Creepers is why Francis Ford Coppola chose to stamp his name on this grade-Z movie as producer."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"One genuinely gets the sense from the first hour of this film that Salva is exorcising some of his own demons."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"As the plot hemorrhages from one dire encounter to another, the clichéd old psychic routine is used to explain the plot to anyone who might still care."
‑ Tom Grealis, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"This is definitely not a good movie, and it has too many major flaws within the context of the genre to be a good horror movie."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"Feels too rote to inspire real terror."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"A good way to find some genuinely creepy moments in a decade where they were short in supply."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"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."
‑ James O'Ehley, Movie Gurus
"...Alternates between moments of sheer terror and ridiculously cheesy effects..."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"...takes an enduring monster-movie premise, starts to rework it promisingly, and then drops the ball and falls back on trite, stereotyped action until we finally stop caring."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
