Review by Steve Rhodes
2 stars out of 4

Every twenty-third spring, as we are warned in the opening to JEEPERS CREEPERS 2, something comes to eat you. That something, called The Creeper (Jonathan Breck) in the credits, is a man-beast with wide wings who looks like a bat out of hell.

Writer and director Victor Salva leaves no doubts as to where his financial and artistic allegiances lie. With a strong sense of the visual, he spends his time and talent on the production's impressive sound, music, cinematography and special effects. He wastes little time on trivialities like casting, acting, character development and script. He wants to build a franchise that will provide him a lucrative income stream for a long time to come. He wants to get to JEEPERS CREEPERS X and THE CREEPER TAKES ON FREDDY AND JASON. With generic characters and interchangeable actors in his movies, he remains in total control of his destiny.

The plot for JEEPERS CREEPERS 2 involves a championship basketball team, three cheerleaders and a few expendable adults stuck on bus on a lonely country road in the middle of nowhere. The Creeper has put the bus out of commission so that he can snack on its riders. As they are getting eaten one by one, the kids have random and meaningless thoughts on subjects ranging from racism to homosexuality.

The movie's last act presents the classic horror movie conundrum -- how can they kill an unkillable monster? The techniques used are cute, in a retrograde kind of way, but the answer to the aforementioned question becomes increasingly obvious as the last night of this cycle of The Creeper's terror winds down.

JEEPERS CREEPERS 2 runs 1:43. It is rated R for "horror violence and language" and would be acceptable for most teenagers.
