Unengaging, bland, boring

age 13+

Lame

For any of you horror fans that remember the 2001 Jeepers Creepers this is a sad sad rip off. There is little to no suspense in the story it’s very loosely tied together. Would wait till this one comes to the Syfy channel. Not worth the one hour and 20 minutes( short run time ) Which felt like 2+ hours
