Jeepers Creepers: Reborn Blu-ray Review

“Jeepers Creepers: Reborn” is a failed reboot.

Directed by Timo Vuorensola (best known for “Iron Sky”) and written by Jake Seal and Sean-Michael Argo, “Jeepers Creepers: Reborn” is a reboot of the horror franchise. In this fourth entry, the story finds horror fan Chase and his biologist girlfriend Laine heading off to the Horror Hound festival in Louisiana. Chase plans on proposing to Laine while Laine plans on revealing that she is pregnant. Alas, their time of joy is interrupted by none other than The Creeper. You see, The Creeper is a legend at this point in time and it is said that he returns every 23 years to hunt for food for 23 days. Unsurprisingly, The Creeper has just risen. At the horror fest, Chase and Laine win a rigged broadcasted Barnabett House escape room prize which turns out to be a trap set by the cult. Within this house lies The Creeper who has sights set out on the pregnant Laine. Will anyone make it out alive?

The original “Jeepers Creepers” director and creator Victor Salva has rightly been blacklisted for his horrific past deeds and for the first time the horror franchise has now moved to the hands of someone else (in this case Timo Vuorensola). The desire to resurrect a popular horror franchise is understandable, but if the quality of this indie film is any indication, the franchise is better off lying dormant. 

Unless you are a die hard fan of the “Jeepers Creepers” series, this fourth entry is unlikely to have any appeal. Even if you are a fan, you might scoff at this low-budget turkey. Everything about this movie feels like a slapped together cash grab. There’s a reason it sits at 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s cheaply made, the CGI and green screen work is atrocious (see the cemetery for reference and the CGI birds that are barely a step above “Birdemic”), the cast has zero chemistry, the horror convention angle is wasted and really doesn’t even resemble a convention (it looks like a low-rent carnival), much of the “story” involves characters running around a house, the cult angle is barely explored at all, and The Creeper costumes look funky (you can see better costumes at a horror convention). Even the brief appearances by Dee Wallace and Gary Graham fall flat.


Presentation: 2.39:1 1080p. How does it look? As cheap as the movie is, the hi-def transfer delivers.

Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? The 5.1 track does the job.

Extras include Screen Media trailers, a “Behind The Creeps” featurette about this new entry with interviews and set footage, and a look at the new creature designs with “Creeper Transformation.”
