Plot
The Creeper strikes again and gets more screen time as the monster we now know him as. His mythology has been laid out and turned the original film into a complex subgenre cross-over but apparently left little for this sequel to chew on. Jeepers Creepers 2 goes full slasher. It doesn't go for subtlety and is rougher around the edges, from the screenplay to the photography.
Victor Salva can’t seem to match the quality of Part 1. There are more characters but they share one personality. They aren't as relatable, not authentic and don’t come with a backstory. They are as generic as this sequel is. It doesn't have the clever structure its predecessor had and the actors aren't invested as much, but, as a teen slasher, it meets most 80’s genre standards.
Most of the story happens in and around a yellow bus in the middle of a deserted road with victimized high school boys because that’s what the Creeper likes. The new premise is interesting and the delivery sometimes just as much, but this is a cold film with wobbly build-up, misplaced humor, stoic action scenes and awkward bits that ultimately deduct from our predisposition to fear.
