Have you ever felt totally cheated after waiting 14 years for a sequel of a movie just to be served up a half arsed film that promises great things next time around? The epic working title of this film was Jeepers Creepers Cathedral but it should have been names Jeepers Creepers, lets just waste your fucking time.. *inhale*…. *exhale*
The film brings nothing to the story and has absolutely no character development for the beloved Creeper, albeit we really just want to see him scary and slaughter people while being maimed in ludacris ways, this run around story doesn’t even deliver the basics. Originally he started out as a ghoulish bad guy with a wicked sense of humour trolling around the spring night in his BEATNGU van collecting body parts until he stumbled on a few delicious eyes that he wanted. In his next incarnation he returned for a group of victims, it’s always best to come back for a group in your Hollywood sequel, his interactions were more comical and sinister and he became a flying spectre who crafted remarkable weapons from the body parts he collected, but he has an arch rival in this episode, a bit underpowered for the story but great additions for the creeper.. then it all went wrong.

For a while the horror scene was starting to get stale and boring, Zombies were becoming ever popular and around this period of tedium The Creeper was born, and this curious and bizarre creature really sparked up the monster aspect in the horror scene once again.
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly where the Creeper character originates from but he seems to always have a trick up his sleeve, and without any backstory you can pretty much make what you will of the Creeper, to me he seems like some kind of Chimera.. who like Freddy Kreuger has frightened and seduced his audience.

I have to admit that I have a teeny crush on Ray Wise, but who couldn’t fall for his charm, the tall dark handsome stranger of anyone’s nightmares. Generally I manage to see him in a lot of horror movies, but that’s obvious due to the nature of my blog, I’m rather partial to horror! I really think Mr Wise should have had more lead roles and I’m impressed with his constant contributions no matter how small but sadly the one character I’d love to see him as; the devil, was in a TV show and as we all know I don’t watch tv… I guess I’m going to have to make an exception.
The iconic 80s sci fi had a host of amazing characters, literally every one influenced some film or show at point, while Ray didn’t play the most influential person, he did have some memorable scenes including a fight with Robocop on the dance floor of an industrial club, shooting Robocop in the chest and generally being one of the coolest members of Clarence’s gang. 10/10 [REVIEW] Continue reading 5 Selected – Ray Wise
