I loved the first two Jeepers Creepers Movies (Third one was, meh.) But this instalment just didn't cut it. It had the feeling of having had the crap edited out of it, and at just over 80 minutes long, it probably did. The opening sequence was not explained well, and seemed disjointed from the movie. In fact the whole movie felt disjointed, with half baked ideas not fully realised. Nothing really happens for the first half of the movie, it almost had a made for TV feeling about it. One person disappears just about at the beginning of the film, and apart from a "Where are you?" comment, seems to get forgotten for the rest of the film. There are a few deaths early on, but none are shown on camera, just hands grabbing someone then a puddle of blood. I'm not a big gore lover, but in a movie like this it's part of the fun. The ending is predictable, all in all one to avoid.

"How do you like those peepers b*tch?!"
Jeepers Creepers Reborn is the latest unheard of entry in the Jeepers Creepers series. Reborn plays more as a remake in a way rather than a sequel to the first three films. It's not necessarily a remake only because it mentions the existence of the films in this film so it basically treats itself as the real deal. Let's put it this way, it's the furthest thing from ever being the real deal. If you thought Jeepers Creepers 3 was bad and didn't think it could sink any lower, somehow this movie does that. This movie is pure trash on every single level imaginable. The cgi is so bad that you would think they just started post production one day before the films release. It's honestly astonishing how awful the cgi is. There's literally a scene the cgi doesn't render and you could literally see the green screen as the car door opens. If the creeper has ever frightened you in any of the first three films then unfortunately get ready to laugh at this one because he's a sniffing old weak b*tch in this outing. I'm seriously baffled at how awful this film was. The only reason it exists is because the writer/director of the first three films did some awful things we don't need to speak of and so they just flat out canceled that storyline and thought this would be an acceptable replacement. The acting is terrible, the plot is Hell Fest meets the Creeper, and somehow the cgi looked worse than it did in the 90s/early 2000s. Normally I'd say stay far away from this, but I also want you all to experience just how bad the Jeepers Creepers movies have gotten. I get movies like Jason X are laughably bad, but this one actually tries to be good which is sad. None of the kills were even good and I'm assuming that's because it was made $25.

I will never not be fond of the first two Jeepers Creepers films. They are special, prized memories from my adolescence. They were both a really good time, they were some of the gateway films to my appreciation of horror as a millennial.
Watching Jeepers Creepers: Reborn felt like watching an old, burnt out husk of the former saga. Reborn is a blind, money-making project. This fourth film's director is well-meaning. However... he was given neither a budget nor a set.
In the old days, Jeepers Creepers used authentic locations and actors, as well as minimal green screen (Deep South Americana and/or Florida plus real American actors). The production of Jeepers Creepers: Reborn spits on this. It is an aberration of the basic film development approach of the originals.
Reborn is filmed in what seems like a pastoral English landscape. It employs a lot of European actors. Here we have squeaky clean topographies with aseptic, wannabe Hollywood actors. The grit and savage beauty of the Deep South have evaporated, an ever-diminishing point on the horizon. Welcome to the budget(not)friendly post-Covid reality in which Hollywood wants to make movies: three meagre days of principle photography in Louisiana followed by 97% of production filmed in the UK. As I said earlier: a *fully accomplished annihilation* of the essence of the first two films.
I could go on: a lesser incarnation of the Creeper, two leading roles that pale next to Justin Long and Gina Philips. Just plain sad.
