This came out in 2001, but I didn't see it until 2013. I could swear I'd read some really good reviews when it came out (or at least one good review, I dunno). So I've wanted to see it for a long time. And... I guess it was decent. Not something I feel the need to see again. Um... anyway, there's a brother and sister, Darry (Justin Long) and Trish, who are driving home from college or whatever. They have some fairly amusing, good-natured sibling squabbles, interrupted at one point by a creepy old truck that seems like it's trying to drive them off the road. But it passes, and they soon allow their familiar habits to restore a sense of normalcy... until they pass an old abandoned church, where they see the truck, and a strange figure dumping what looks like a body down a large drain pipe. The figure sees them see him, so he gets back in his truck and gives chase, but once again they manage to evade him. Then Darry convinces Trish that they should go back to the church to see if it really was a body, and if it's still alive, and needs help. From that point on, things get progressively creepier. But I really don't want to say any more about the plot. Or anything.

Followed by Jeepers Creepers II
