  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In "Jeepers Creepers II," a busload of high school athletes, cheerleaders, and coaches find themselves in some serious trouble after their bus gets a flat tire on the highway. When the adults finds a scary looking sharp object in the tire a second time, they know that this was no accident at all. Hiding out in the bus at night they soon realize that all is not right; the Creeper is out there and he's a hungry beast who won't stop feeding until his appetite is gone! (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced DVD exhibits a stylized 2.35:1-framed picture that is richly colored and often saturated in gold overtones. Fleshtones are well balanced and blacks are endless. The appropriately dark picture is solid and offers excellent shadow delineation in the darkness to help heighten the terror. Images are sharp and detailed and the picture exhibits nice clarity. The source element is revealing of some film grain in a few scenes and occasional flecks of dirt. Minor edge enhancement and pixelization are also apparent. Overall, this is a pleasing picture for the storytelling. (Suzanne Hodges)
