YMMV / Jeepers Creepers

  • First Installment Wins: The original is generally seen as being much creepier than the sequel due to the lighting, atmosphere and other horror elements. The fact that the Creeper is shown more in the sequel also kills the scary factor somewhat. There are also other factors that make the sequel seem more like a generic teen horror film than the previous film. However, as mentioned on the sequel's page, it does have its fans.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: "You know that is you in forty years." Darry, sadly, does not get to live that long.
  • Nausea Fuel: The gulping sounds the Creeper makes when he's swallowing something.
  • The Scrappy: Trish, for her treatment of Jezelle
    • Jezelle herself, for having New Powers as the Plot Demands, with her psychic powers having no explanation or build up and only existing to be a plot device.
  • Special Effects Failure: The Impala is supposed to be a stick shift (as evident in all interior shots). You can clearly see the real transmission (a steering wheel-mounted automatic) in several exterior shots. Whoops.
    • There's a zipper visible on the back of the Creeper in one scene
  • Squick: Many moments, but the Creeper pulling the tongue out of a decapitated head with his teeth definitely qualifies.
  • The Woobie: Darry and Jezelle from the first film, and Minxie, Rhonda, Bucky and Jack Sr. from the second film.
