Jeepers Creepers script
Synopsis: After making a horrific discovery in the basement of an old abandoned church, Trish (Gina Philips) and her brother Darry (Justin Long) watch their routine road trip home from college turn into a heart-stopping race for their lives. They find themselves the chosen prey of an indestructible force that relentlessly pursues them and gives a new and chilling meaning to the old song "Jeepers Creepers."

TRISH:

Just get out of his way!

DARRY:

He's nuts!

TRISH:

(emphatically)

Get out of his way, Darry!

Darry swerves into the oncoming lane and the van tears

forward. Blasting toward the distant horizon.

Both brother and sister watch breathless. Catching its

rusting and personalized license plate:

TRISH (cont’d)

Jesus!

DARRY:

(back in the right lane)

Shit!

TRISH:

What the Hell is his problem?

DARRY:

My first guess:
inbreeding!

He has shouted this last word out the window toward the

distant van.

DARRY (cont’d)

Get a load of that thing?

Vehicle of choice for five out

of ten serial killers.

Brother and sister still trying to catch their breath as the

van disappears over a distant rise.

TRISH:

God you know what I just

thought of, right?

JEEPERS CREEPERS

DARRY:

Kenny and Darla.

(off Trish's nod)

They died about a hundred

miles from here.

TRISH:

It was the same highway.

DARRY:

This highway runs the length

of the State.

TRISH:

You think it really happened?

DARRY:

That they had to go looking

for her head?

TRISH:

No that they never found her.

Or him. They only found the

car.

DARRY:

No, they never found her head.

They found the car but they

couldn't find him or her head.

TRISH:

Look at me...

(holds out her hand)

I'm still shaking.

DARRY:

You don't think every

generation has their

cautionary tale of drinking

and driving on Prom Night?

TRISH:

I always heard it was real.

That they were Class of '80.

After I heard that story, I

used to think this was the

highway I would die on.

DARRY:

Quite the cheery thinker,

today. What did "Poly-sci guy"

do to you anyway?
