1.0 out of 5 stars Marginally more interesting than reality TV..., 17 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Jeepers Creepers 2 [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
...but not much!

I don't usually watch horror films - they prey on my mind in the wee small hours!-, but this happened to be on TV one dull sunday evening whilst I was feeling too lazy to exercise the remote and move on.

My scare rating for this has to be a minus 10. Am I, perhaps, getting tougher in my old age? Could I now watch The Exorcist with confidence? Nope. It's just that this film was more of a comedy than a horror, imo. No nightmares for me. This was typical cliched teen-horror fare, and not very good at that!

What was that winged thing - a Batfink/Alien hybrid? Whatever it was, it was the daftest looking thing I've seen in a long time. And it can just rip its own head off, calmly replacing it with that of one of its victims, can it? Puh-lease!

By the end of the film I was shouting at the Tv, advising the heroic dad, who ultimately saved the day (or night), that it might be prudent to toss the bat-thing's carcass onto the fire after he'd, apparently, killed it.

Did he listen to my mantra? No! What did he do? He pinned it up in his barn as a rather odd looking feature, charging local teens five dollars a time to look at it.

Lord Elrond (LOTR) knew what he was talking about. If you want to destroy something properly, chuck it into the nearest Mount Doom (or a modern day equivalent such as a foundry). Don't hang it in your barn as a trophy and then sit there, crappy old harpoon gun in hand, waiting for the thing to come back to life.

Why don't people in films think like the rest of us? Because if they did, there wouldn't be any need for sequels!
