''Jeepers Creepers'' is a 2001 horror/monster movie directed by Victor Salva, and starring Justin Long, Gina Philips and Jonathan Breck. [[TitledAfterTheSong It takes its name from the song "Jeepers Creepers"]], which features in the movie.

The movie centers around two siblings, Darius "Darry" and Patricia "Trish" Jenner, as they take the scenic route home from college in Trish's [[TheAllegedCar banged-up old car]], and their strange and frightening encounter on the lonely highway with what seems to be a [[DrivesLikeCrazy crazed, obnoxious driver]] of an ominous green truck, who attempts to run them off the road. Later, from a distance, they witness the driver of the truck, dumping what appears to be bodies wrapped in bloodstained bags down a pipe, adjacent to an abandoned church. Seeing them, the driver of the truck engages the two in a terrifying road chase, but they manage to escape. Darry, against Trish's wishes, decides to go and investigate the old church in case there may be someone alive, only to make a horrific discovery. Much later, they discover that the driver of the truck is not initially as he seems...

* PoliceAreUseless: Surprisingly averted, for the most part. The cops, while not entirely believing of Darry's story, do send a team out to the old church to check it out, and the Poho police at the end try their hardest to try and take the Creeper down.

They still don't put much of a fight though, and mostly just gawk at the Creeper, and they ''never'' shoot it in time.

Followed by ''Film/JeepersCreepers2'' in 2003. A third movie, ''Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral'' (previously thought to be titled ''The Creeper Walks Among Us'') - and possibly a fourth movie - have since been announced by MGM, but currently seems to be stuck in DevelopmentHell. Interestingly, the script for the third movie apparently [[WordOfGod sets up a TV series]].

** In the scene with the cops at the diner, the camera often focuses on Gideon's head. He gets decapitated very shortly after.



* InescapableHorror: Once the Creeper has your scent, it will ''not'' stop chasing you until it gets what it wants.
