Every 23rd Spring, for 23 Days, it gets to eat. Today is the last day of a horrific feeding frenzy, and the Creeper is still hungry for more!
On a deserted highway, a school bus is carrying a basketball team and its cheerleaders back from a triumphant game. The bus breaks down on a lonely stretch of road and the thrill of victory is quickly replaced by terror, as the journey becomes a road trip to hell! As the sun sets, the Creeper descends on the bus and picks off the athletes one by one, sniffing out his victims. Will any of them survive? Or will they all provide the Creeper with another horrific helping of mouth-watering morsels, in this nerve-jangling horror?
This sequel to its popular predecessor portrays a more ruthless Creeper. It is more efficient at hunting its prey and even comes equipped with homemade weapons to aid it in its search for the perfect victims. As with many sequels the movie was not as successful as the original, but it keeps (if not surpasses) the eerieness of the first and contains a decent amount of blood/gore to satisfy horror fans. There are a number of comedic moments throughout the movie which add to the entertainment factor, but with Francis Ford Coppola only having an executive role in the production, the movie fails to meet the high standards set by the original.
That aside, viewing this movie from an independent perspective, I’d say it ticks nearly all the boxes and is definitely worth a watch. Obviously if you own the first it would be beneficial to complete the set (That is until Jeepers Creepers 3 comes out in 2013)
