Overview

Directed by Victor Salva, Jeepers Creepers is a stylish, moody American horror film that subverts many of the tired clichés that have plagued the genre in recent years. Although the film is reminiscent of other productions (especially Spielberg's Duel and Jaws), Creepers manages to find its own sense of purpose. It's also one of the more scary American mainstream horror films to come down the pike in awhile. MGM Home Entertainment has done a stellar job with this DVD and obviously felt that the film deserved more than a toss-off release. The film is available in both full screen and letterboxed (1.85:1 enhanced) formats. The transfer for either version is fantastic, although the letterboxed format is preferable for obvious reasons. Many of the film's scenes glow (especially during some of the earlier daylight moments), which is a startling realization when one remembers that the filmmakers have taken such care in what could have been just your average teen horror flick. The audio tracks are also impressive, beautifully highlighting Bennett Salvay's thunderous music score. What's not so impressive, though, is the commentator track with Salva. It's not that it isn't informative or interesting at times, it just doesn't entertain. But Salva is a very gracious host and thanks his crew and the actors numerous times for raising his material above the average horror dreck. But the disc does contain some excellent supplemental material such as a collection of six mini-featurettes that give a nice overview of the production, plenty of deleted and extended scenes (some of which are excellent), a photo gallery, theatrical and TV trailers, and much more. There's also a nifty little Easter Egg on the main menu page; left click after highlighting any of the menu options and will find something staring straight at you.
