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."

She isn't listening. Thoughts elsewhere again.

DARRY (cont’d)

"Beating you"

(off her look)

That was the license plate on

the van:
B-E-A-T-N-G-U".

(turns to her)

"Beating you", that's five to

five. That ties us up.

TRISH:

You can't call it now.

DARRY:

My ass...

TRISH:

You have to call it when you

see it!

DARRY:

I was in shock!

THE JANGLING BELLS OF A RAILROAD CROSSING AHEAD.

DARRY (cont’d)

You know I don't remember

there being so many rules to

this game.

Trish and Darry slowing as the bells ring and the bars lower.

DARRY (cont’d)

'Course when there was, you

were the one making 'em.

Little Miss Junior Nazi with

the Barbie Doll and the Easy

Bake Oven...

Darry looks down the tracks. Sees the small cargo train

approaching. Revs the engine.

TRISH:

Don't you dare.

(off his look)

My car.

Trish sniffs. Smells something. Looks in the backseat. The

big thing covered in a trash bag. She lifts the plastic: a

full laundry basket.

JEEPERS CREEPERS

TRISH (cont’d)

You are a class act, you know

that?

DARRY:

Hey you live off campus.

(she just stares at him)

You ever try and do laundry in

a dorm? What they don't steal

they dye pink for you. I've

got twelve pair of rosey-pink

jockey shorts.

TRISH:

Maybe they know something

about you, you don't.

She takes the Deodorizer hanging off the rearview mirror and

stuffs it in the bag.

TRISH (cont’d)

Hi mom, haven't seen you

forever, here's my dirty

shorts.

The train is upon them now. He shouts over the din.

DARRY:

Its for her, not me. I have to

bring home laundry. I don't,

she gets depressed. Like she

thinks I don't need her

anymore or something.
