+++ Opinion +++
The time of the great horror icons is largely over. Even if Freddy Krueger («Nightmare on Elm Street»), Jason Voorhees («Friday the 13th») and Michael Myers («Halloween») still make it into cinemas in the present, there is still a lack of sequels, which fill in the style-defining footsteps just as impressively. The Creeper from » Jeepers Creepers «, which will be broadcast on Tele 5 today, April 3rd at 10:10 p.m. , certainly cannot keep up with Freddy and Co. Still, for me, the winged beast is the best and scariest horror monster since the early 2000s.
You don’t have to worry about any cuts in today’s TV broadcast — Tele 5 is showing «Jeepers Creepers» uncut thanks to its FSK 16 rating.

That’s what «Jeepers Creepers» is about
Before I go any further into the film and the Creeper, here’s the synopsis: Siblings Trish ( Gina Philips ) and Darryl ( Justin Long ) find themselves on a lonely highway on their long way home from college. When the two are suddenly harassed by a creepy truck, it is only with great effort that they can avoid an accident. A short time later they see the truck again on the side of the road next to a dilapidated church. They watch as the driver throws conspicuous bundles, apparently stained with blood, into an earth tube — and then looks exactly in their direction.
Again, they are almost pushed off the road by the stranger, but are just able to meet the angry attacks of the old truck. Unsettled by what’s really in the bundles, Trish and Darryl return to the old, derelict church. As they examine the burrow, Darryl loses his footing and falls into a gloomy vault. What he discovers there exceeds his worst guesses. But the horror has only just begun…
