‘Jeepers Creepers: Reborn’ – Movie Review: Another One Bites the Dust

Review

Total Score
4/10
Overall
4.0/10

Jeepers Creepers: Reborn is a slasher horror movie directed by Timo Vuorensola, starring Sydney Craven and Imran Adams.

A reboot of the 2001 flick by Victor Salva. Very much like the title of this review, the movie is an unimaginative cliché. In fact, it is a tad worse.

Premise

A couple goes on a trip and comes face to face with a mysterious creature that kills everything and everyone that crosses its path for no apparent reason.

Movie Review

Is this just another slasher movie? Yes, and it cannot be emphasized enough. It piggy backs on the original feature film, and never really manages to engage nor convince us. It is a studio production, with all the “comforts” and the quality that that entails, however it is too a movie that is overtly a product that simply seeks a profit relying on an already existing piece. Without much imagination as far as the premise is concerned, it gives us the impression that those behind the screenplay do not seem to have given much thought to what they are offering the viewers, and have served us a slasher that is a run-of-the-mill.

One of the traits of slasher movies, and which explains why so many are produced is that they are normally relatively economical to bring about. Jeepers Creepers: Reborn is definitely not an exception to that rule and is merely a “filler” in the movie array, that does not manage to stand out from the genre nor provide us with anything new. It was not on the agenda to be original or innovative.

The performances are good considering the limitations of the screenplay, and it does have the very odd amusing scene, as the dress-up scene that is a clear nod to the 80’s and 90’s horror movies; the same applies the photography and costume designs.

Where to Watch
