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."

EXT. LONELY COUNTRY ROAD. DAY.

An empty ribbon of asphalt. Winding through an endless

stretch of meadows and farmlands. For a long moment, silence.

Then, a distant speck. A car moving toward us.

A SOUND APPROACHING WITH IT NOW. A RADIO BLARING AND TWO

RAISED VOICES SINGING WITH IT.

TRISHA JAMES is a beautiful girl of twenty. Hair blowing in

the breeze of the open passenger window. She sings out,

banging the side of the car with her hand. Keeping the beat

of the boisterous rock song.

She sings with younger brother DARRY. Nineteen. Attractive

like his sister. Lighter hair. Softer looking. Striking eyes.

Voice raised as they speed along. Trying to swallow up the

road as quickly as possible.

The backseat has a couple of suitcases and a large basket

wrapped in a garbage bag. The song comes to an end as Darry

flies through an abandoned intersection.

TRISH:

That was a stop sign.

DARRY:

You're kidding, right?

TRISH:

In your car I'd be kidding.

DARRY:

You think we're actually gonna

run into anyone else on this

road? Relax!

(turns the radio louder,

shouts over it)

Enjoy the countryside!

The ANGRY MUSIC WAILING and the car blasting down the

tranquil road. We watch as it heads for what seems like

infinity.

EXT. LONELY COUNTRY ROAD. DAY. SOME TIME LATER.

DARRY:

Okay, here comes...

Trish and Darry slowing down now. Coming up on a

camper/trailer. Brother and sister stare at the license

plate:

JEEPERS CREEPERS

DARRY (cont’d)

(reads it loudly)

"Six A Forever!"

(grins)

That's mine! That's five to

five. Tied up.

TRISH:

What does it mean?

(off his look)

"Six A Forever" what does it

mean?

DARRY:

I don't know.

TRISH:

'Cause it says "Sexy Forever",

stupid, that's mine. That's

five to four.

DARRY:

Since when did you start aceing

me at this game?

TRISH:

Since you were ten. It

involves English and reading.

Darry guns the engine. Goes into the oncoming lane to pass

the camper/trailer.

TRISH (cont’d)

Come on, Darry.

They pass the cab of the truck. An OLD MAN of sixty behind

the wheel. His WIFE next to him. He glares down at Trish and

Darry as they pass him.

DARRY:

Sexy forever huh?

TRISH:

You know that is you in forty

years.

DARRY:

Note to self:
Die young.

(checks his rearview)

Any place but here on this

unbelievably endless road.

JEEPERS CREEPERS

TRISH:

You wanna be sucking in

exhaust fumes on the

Interstate?

DARRY:

No I love stopping at train

tracks every ten minutes.

No further comment from big sister. She's suddenly some place

else.

DARRY (cont’d)

You know there's usually a

reason when you like the long

way home.

TRISH:

Gee like, maybe I like the

country?

DARRY:

(mocking sincerity)

Okay.

TRISH:

Just drive, brat.

DARRY:

I'm only thinking the same

thing mom and dad are gonna be

thinking:
how come you're

driving home for Spring break

with baby brother?

Not heading off somewhere with

"Mr.Poly-Sci-Track-Team-Guy"?

TRISH:

And I'll tell you what I'd

tell them:
none of your

Goddamned business-

WOOOONNNNKKKKKK!!!!! A DARK VAN HAS SUDDENLY LURCHED BEHIND

THEM BLARING ITS HORN.

DARRY:

(swerves a little)

Jesus!

The van is tailgating them at an alarming velocity. Rattling

and shimmying it is so old and distressed.

JEEPERS CREEPERS

TRISH:

Darry!

DARRY:

What's this guy trying to do?!

He tries to find the driver in the rearview. The Van's

windshield is heavily tinted.
