|"In a world where..."
You don't want to miss this confident and suspenseful trailer for
Jeepers Creepers starring Gina Phillips (Trish) and Justin Long (Darryl). Patricia
Belcher reprises Scatman Crouthers role from The Shining as the elderly
do-gooder who will probably be lunchmeat by the credits.
A lonely country road and a sheet covered body being dumped down
a pipe is just too much for our curious teens to resist. Taking
a page from Scream the characters of Jeepers Creepers are aware of
what happens in horror flicks. While Darryl tries to get a
closer look down the pipe Trish intones, "You know the part
in scary movies where somebody does something really stupid and everybody
hates them for it? This is it."
By a show of hands who thinks he's gonna fall down the pipe? He
falls down the pipe. Eventually this schtick will be replaced
with referring to yourself in the movie. "At the end of
this movie I die, but that's in another half an hour."
Next we're treated to some explanation about the monster and our
first glimpses of the beast. He reminds me an awful lot of
Michael Keaton in Beetlejuice, but with an appetite for flesh instead
of witty banter. Then we briefly get to meet the "cops
who just won't listen."
Ending with a frenetic montage of battles between our lucky kids
and the evil beast we are left with but a single question: How
will the monster die so there can still be a sequel?
In summary, I was in suspense from beginning to end. I hope
the movie has more surpises in store than what was already revealed.
on trailer: Excellent.
Conclusion on movie: I
think you may have already seen it.
