Followed by ''Film/JeepersCreepers2'' in 2003. A third movie, ''Jeepers Creepers 3'' (previously thought to be titled ''The Creeper Walks Among Us'' or ''Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral'') - and possibly a fourth movie - was announced by MGM, but remained in DevelopmentHell for years. Shooting finally started in 2016, with the film receiving an announced one-night-only release on September 26, 2017. Demand sufficed for a re-showing on October 4, followed by a two-night showing on Syfy for the pre-Halloween weekend.

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanLegend: It's implied that the Creeper's exploits are better-known among the locals than previous films had acknowledged, although the teenagers are too young to have lived through a previous round of attacks and assume it's this trope.

''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...
