In this edition of Horror Character Analysis, we explore a mysterious but terrifying horror monster. In 2001, a new horror character was born with the film Jeepers Creepers. In that movie, we learn of a monster that feeds on humans every 23rd spring, for 23 days. That character is known as The Creeper. We would also see the Creeper again in the 2003 sequel and again in Jeepers Creepers 3 in 2017.

The Creeper is one of the all-time enigmas of the horror genre. Without knowing much, it is a very hard character to analyze. There are so many questions to ask when it comes to it. What is it’s past? How old is it? What the hell is it? Why the hell does it love the Jeepers Creepers song so much?

Despite all those legitimate questions, we can draw a few conclusions. It has unbelievable athletic ability & strength. It is extremely intelligent. It also has a diet that would make Hannibal Lecter very proud, although eating only 23 years may be a bit on the unsafe side. Perhaps, that’s why The Creeper is so violent. Its hangry!

All jokes aside, The Creeper is one horror villain I would not want to run into. It has the ability to run fast and also fly which would make it difficult to evade it. At the same time, you’re also not safe in a car. The Creeper’s souped-up truck with the license plate “BEATNGU” can travel at extremely high speeds making it impossible to outrun. As mentioned earlier, it has incredible strength. Not only that, but The Creeper is also equipped with daggers and throwing stars.

We also know that The Creeper is extremely hard to kill due to all of the reasons mentioned above, and its ability to regenerate when it eats human organs.

Although much is not known about The Creeper from the previous three films, perhaps we will learn more about it soon. The latest installment of the Jeppers Creepers franchise will release on September 19th, 2022 with Jeepers Creepers: Reborn. While this will be a reboot, I hope it provides us with more answers instead of questions.

Either way, I am excited to get a new look at the creature that terrified me for the first time over 20 years ago.

Horror Character Analysis: Jason Voorhees

Jason Voorhees may be the single biggest reason I am a horror fan today. Friday the 13th is one of the first horror movies I remember watching as a child. I was intrigued by the mask killer largely due to him sharing the same first name as me, Jason.

Jason Voorhees is one of the most unique horror characters of all time. While he is a murderous villain and main antagonist of the Friday the 13th series, but does he also have an endearing side?

Horror fans can’t dismiss the fact that Jason had a fucked up childhood. His face was disfigured, making him the butt of jokes from other children his age. He was bullied and ultimately neglected by his peers when he drowned (or didn’t) in Camp Crystal Lake. Years later he witnessed his mother being decapitated by a camp counselor. Afterall, she was just seeking revenge for her sweet, sweet Jason.

These events lead to Jason becoming one of the most brutal murderers in horror film history. With each passing film, Jason became more powerful and his overall transformation from film to film has been a joy to watch.

Jason has evolved from disfigured faced child to sack head, to hockey mask, to deteriorating body, to demonic possession of humans, to even ultra-unstoppable Jason X. He has even went toe to toe with another horror icon, Freddy Krueger. Through it all Jason just keeps coming back, stronger and deadlier.

His means of killing are diverse. Machete, strangulation, suffocation, sleeping bag to tree, icepick, axe, spear, pitchfork, fireplace poker, hacksaw, harpoon, beheading with a punch, and SO many more.

Jason Voorhees is also quite nimble. Just when you think you have gotten away from him, POOF! There he is again. He is like the guy you don’t invite to your party but he shows up anyway.

Despite his brutal, murderous past, let’s be honest. I love Jason Voorhees. You love Jason Voorhees. He is a horror legend and like his character, his legend only grows stronger.
