Jeepers Creepers 2



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

MPAA Rating: R

Every 23 years an ancient monster known as the Creeper comes back to "life" and spends the next 23 days feasting on humans. This time around he finds a broken down high school bus full of basketball players, cheerleaders and coaches that are ripe for the picking. With Jonathan Breck, Justin Long, Nicki Lynn Aycox, Ray Wise and Billy Aaron Brown. Directed by Victor Salva. [1:46]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A young man pulls his pants down to urinate (we see him bare-chested and the top of his buttock). A few young men are bare-chested in several scenes. A young woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage. There are accusations made about a young man being gay and references to his making advances to other young men.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - We see the monster in detail: he has blackened and slimy skin, has very pointed teeth, sharp claws on his feet and hands and enormous wings with points at the ends. A young man is wrapped in a monster's wing, he struggles, other young men hold on to him, and we see the young man's headless body (with blood on the neck) flailing about until it falls to the floor dead. A monster struggles with a spear stuck through his eye (we see his eye on the end of the spear), he slides it back and forth (we hear a lot of squishing), and then he pulls the top of his head off (we see it land on the ground with a splat). A monster punches a hole in the roof of a bus, grabs a young man by the head and tries to pull him up through the hole, while a young woman stabs the monster with a spear once in the arm and once through the eye and the monster drops the young man. A man is grabbed by the shoulders by a clawed monster, two young men try to hold on to him, but he is pulled away and into the sky. A monster hangs on a scarecrow post in a field, a young boy approaches him, he swoops down and grabs the boy dragging him by the head through a field, he is chased by a man with a shotgun and he flies off into the sky (we hear the boy screaming). A group of young run through a field, one young man is hit in the back of the head with a knife (he falls dead), another is hit in the arm with a knife and is stuck to a tree (others try to free him by pulling on and wiggling the knife and the young man screams in pain), the monster swoops in and grabs him (we hear him scream as they go into the sky). A monster attacks a young man, he straddles him on the ground, the young man holds him by the throat, the monster is shot through the head and is shoved back off the young man (we see him with a harpoon sticking out of his head and he struggles to remove it). A monster grabs a young man by the head, squeezes and the young man's head bleeds down his forehead. A monster is stabbed repeatedly with a spear (we see blood splattering with every blow and blood oozes from his head), it yells, it convulses, then goes still, then his head is wrapped by what looks like a cocoon. A monster pulls his head off (we see that part of it is missing) and then grows a new head (we see a young man's head ooze up from inside the monster's chest), it pops up through the neck and then it changes to the monster's appearance. A monster is shot with a harpoon attached to a truck, he is hit in the chest and flies back into a field, he flies up into the air, pulls the rope that slices the roof of a bus, then pulls the truck along a road and eventually flips it over. Again, a monster is shot with a harpoon attached to a truck, he is pierced through the chest, he pulls on the rope, jerking the truck around, and the harpoon is thrown back through the windshield of the truck nearly hitting a young man inside. A monster chases a pickup truck with a young man in the back; the young man shoots the monster with a flare gun, the driver shoves a young woman out of the truck, slams on the brakes, and the monster sails through the truck and lands on the ground missing a leg, an arm and a wing. We hear crunching and chewing after a person has been attacked. A monster crashes onto the top of a bus blowing out the windows and knocking the occupants to the ground. A monster eyes young people on a school bus, sniffs them, licks a window and shakes the bus violently. We see a young boy with a bloody head wound, we see a young man with empty, bloody eye sockets, a young man has blood on his face, and a young man has a bloody leg wound. Two men and a woman lay flares in a road and are swooped up into the air by a monster. A young woman faints, her eyes go white and she dreams about the monster and some of his victims. We hear a news report of a fire in a church where over 300 bodies are found with descriptions of bodies being stitched together like a human tapestry. A man holds a dagger and it appears to shoot out of his hand and hits a lamp across the room. The decayed remains of a monster hang on the wall of a barn with a harpoon set up to be trained at him. A young man talks about kicking certain people off a bus. A young man yells at others and shoves a couple of other young men, and one young man shoves him back. We see some of the monster's weapons: one is a dagger with a carved bone handle with images of tortured bodies, another is a spiked weapon (looks like a throwing star) that appears to be made from bone (one is covered with a piece of dried skin that could be a human belly button, and another has a human tooth stuck to it). A truck explodes after crashing. We see a car after it has crashed into a tree and its roof is peeled back like a can. We hear a loud bang and a bus swerves to a stop (a tire blew out), and later we hear another bang, the bus swerves and sparks fly from a wheel rim. Young men tease another young man about being gay, and another young man yells at him and shoves him for the same reason. Young men urinate in a field and we hear the trickle.

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
