WMG / Jeepers Creepers

The Creeper rode a horse before he got his BEATNGU
If he has been around for as long as he has, vehicles wouldn't have existed for as long as him. So, if he did live in the Wild West, he had to have ridden a horse.
  • Or he might drive a wagon, if no horse could stand having a creature like that sit on its back.
  • Or he just flew everywhere. Fast as he flies in the second film, he could certainly out-race a horse; he's only have needed wheels once his prey started driving so fast that he couldn't keep up.
  • Or if his wings are more recent then he used to simply hide out in the wild and ambush wanderers rather than actively hunting down prey.

The up and coming movie Jeepers Creepers 3 will have a bitter sweet ending.
Because of all things it doesn't want to be clich'e and end up with a heartbreaking mind scar or with some crappy fairy tale ending where everyone is O.K at the end, like most early horror movies.
  • Confirmed that there's at least a dash of sweet in the ending - both Addie and Buddy survive - but a lot of people die and the survivors are definitely not getting over it soon. Buddy is implied to have only escaped a subsequent death in 2 because he stayed over with relatives after the game, yet he'll have to live with the further trauma of knowing the Creeper was probably hunting him when it attacked the school bus.

Trish will go all Mama Bear in the third movie
We already know she has a protective side when she begs the Creeper to take her instead of Darry in the first movie. She also has a son and she's dead set on killing the Creeper! It's the perfect set-up!
  • Talk about foresight.

This film takes place just before the events of the show Revolution.
When you think about it, the Creeper has existed for a long time. Long before electricity came to be harnessed by humans. When the worldwide blackout occurs, the Creeper will likely consider it a mild annoyance. For travelling, it would have to rely on teleporting off-screen...or creating a steam-powered vehicle. That thing is more intelligent than it appears to be, so it could think up ways to travel.

The Creeper became what he is because of magic/voodoo
Much like Mordu from Brave, the Creeper wanted something, and so he went to a witch/voodoo person/magic person that granted his wish. And eventually, as he stayed in his new form, his human mind became lost to the creature he had become.

Trish will kill the Creeper by crushing him
Kind of related to the above theory. Like what Elinor did to Mordu in Brave, Trish will figure out that a good way to kill/trap/incapacitate the Creeper would be to crush him with a large rock or something.

The Creeper is one of the Gargoyles
Not the ones from the 90s cartoon, of course (at least... probably not) but the ones from the '72 straight-to-TV horror film. In fact, since one of them becomes a roadside attraction in the film, maybe both films take place in the same universe. Presumably whoever wrote down the lore got "26 years" mixed up with "600 years" when writing down the details of the hibernation cycle, somehow.

The Creeper is psychically linked to its victims' remains as well as their ghosts.
Kenny's ghost from the third film tells his mother that he's a part of the creature and vice versa, so he can sense some of its intentions. The Creeper's throwing stars explicitly incorporate parts of its victims, and its spears seem to end in blades mounted on hafts of etched bone. If it can psychically perceive whatever touches the remains of its victims, the same way that people who touch its old hand can perceive something it'd rather keep hidden, then the Creeper may use their flesh and bones to craft weaponry so that it can easily trace victims who flee with a throwing star or spear embedded in their bodies, as well as locate any weapon that falls into humans' hands. Likewise, it "decorates" its lair with corpses to serve as a grotesque security system that can detect intruders.
  • The fact that the "BEATNGU" van can drive itself while the Creeper is perched on its roof, and even target a snooper with its harpoon-gun when the creature isn't present, implies the van, also, may be psychically linked to the Creeper ... and hence, partially crafted from human remains. Skin upholstery? Arteries for fuel lines? Rendered human fat for motor oil? Many grisly possibilities there...
