Trivia

Gina Philips (Trish) and Justin Long (Darry) were not allowed to meet Jonathan Breck before filming (in order to get a true reaction from them when they actually did see him with his full costume and makeup), nor did they see the BEATNGU truck before the opening scene was shot. When Philips first saw the truck, she said something to the effect of: "Is that the truck? Jeepers, that's creepy." See more »

Goofs

(at around 31 mins) When Darry is in the pipe and Trish is keeping watch, notices headlights coming, and runs to the car, you can clearly see her trying to shift the shifter on the floor, but when the shot of her through the window comes up, you can see the real shift on the steering wheel. In the next shot it is gone. See more »

Interesting and stirring horror movie with an eerie and creepy monster
30 July 2008 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The Jenner brothers, named Patricia(Gina Philips) and Derry(Justin Long)are travelling across the rural South. They stop to investigate an old dark refuge what looks like a killing , but results to be a bizarre monster , Creeper(Jonathan Breck)which appears each new 23rd spring, after several years. He needs humans for a good barbecue and the teenagers brothers are menaced by the murderous maniac Creeper. The brothers flee and looking for to save their own skin , when the cannibal go after them.

This exciting movie with original monster, displays terror, suspense,cannibalism, thrills, and lots of blood and gore. The genuinely scary monster packs an excellent make-up, is played by Jonathan Breck who performs a double role as a bald cop; furthermore appears the veteran Eileen Brennan as the cat lady who confronts against Creeper. The motion picture is professionally written and directed by Victor Salva , he tries for profundity at the end and blow it. Salva is an expert on suspense's creator of atmospheres, such as he proved in : 'The nature of the beast, Powder, Rites of passage and Clownhouse'.

Followed by inferior sequel with Ray Wise and Justin Long appears briefly , realized by the same director, producer: Francis Ford Coppola, American Zoetrope, cameraman: Don E FauntLeroy and musician. Besides, the third part whose screenplay is written and preparing to enter preproduction . The script will have a prologue in the Old West which concerns how Creeper became from Native America folklore
