Great screen chemistry between Long and Philips, really glad there wasn't any type of romantic angle. The monster looks great, but every time the song is mentioned, sung, or whistled it's fucking hilarious. So the monster collects body parts it "needs", then why focus on a song about eyes? It's such a muddled, confusing non essential addition!
(Generous) 7 - Actually running against my self-imposed mandate never to let the creator's personality color my perception of his work, "Jeepers Creepers"; a standard, albeit well-directed horror comedy buried up to its knees in cliches, is actually elevated from the jaws of complete mediocrity when taken as a sneak peek into the prurient mind of the degenerate that spawned it. It's also a lot of fun.
Un teenage horror movie plein de références, qui brise les codes du genre et ne se prend pas (trop) au sérieux. Le ridicule côtoie le flippant et le grotesque, dans un bel équilibre entre (sou)rires et peur. Pas mal.
Ritmo dosato molto bene che fa proseguire il tutto benissimo fino al bel finale, ironico, ma non consolatorio. Il mostro è fantastico, con un design ispiratissimo e una caratterizzazione dalla potenza rara. Ottimi e credibili i dialoghi.La regia valorizza moltissimo la narrazione, miscelando bene ironia nera e macabro, creando un'atmosfera originale. La bella fotografia propone delle inquadrature che restano impresse
While creature features typically don't do it for me when referring to the horror genre as a whole, the first Jeepers Creepers could be considered a modern classic in my eyes. I was intrigued from frame one, and Justin Long made the picture all the more interesting, tracking down the truth behind the Creeper, making those believe in his existence that don't. I found this not quite edge of your seat, but close.
