The 50 Worst Movie Sequels of All Time

21. Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003)

Director: Victor Salva
Stars: Ray Wise, Justin Long, Eric Nenninger, Nicki Aycox, Marieh Delfino

In 2001, the horror community was caught off guard by Jeepers Creepers, an intelligent, well-paced, and inventive monster flick. A huge part of what made the Victor Salva-directed road movie work was its two leads, a brother/sister team (Justin Long and Gina Phillips) that's on screen in nearly every scene and never irritate, a rarity for young horror characters.

Following the old more-is-more approach to genre sequels, Jeepers Creepers 2 tossed a high school basketball team, their coaches and some cheerleaders in the Creeper's path. And-spoiler alert-you'll wish the movie was five minutes long and that Sir Creep would just kill them all in the first scene. Uniformly annoying and clichéd, they gradually get picked off one by one, a narrative progression that foolishly turned the once-methodical Creeper into a tireless slasher. The ugly, freaky bastard deserved better.
