Buy it... if you've never been able to find the original, out-of-print album for Jeepers Creepers and want something similar, but expanded in scope and depth.

Avoid it... if you have little patience for a stereotypical horror score with dissonant orchestral blasts galore.

Jeepers Creepers 2: (Bennett Salvay) In the genre of cheap, teenage slasher flicks with limited intelligence and an abundance of fallacies of logic, this series at least sports a premise that is a little more unusual than those of its competitors. The first Jeepers Creepers film accumulated a cult audience in 2001, raising the idea that a flying, flesh-eating "Creeper" monster arises in a pastoral setting once every 23 years to kill and maim as part of his senselessly voracious feast. Despite continuously poor critical results (and even a backlash against the series from devoted slasher genre fans), the same production team resurrected the creature in 2003 and set its story just a few days after the previous one, with the target now being a stranded group of varsity basketball players, cheerleaders (how unoriginal but tasty!), and coaches traveling on a bus in the same rural area. The concept obviously requires a conveyor belt of attractive meat products to survive. Director Victor Salva once again leads the film, strangely causing continued protests over his conviction for child molestation a dozen years prior (the victim was a child actor in one of his films, well before concerns were raised about his filming of teens in Powder and the Jeepers Creepers films). Salva had worked with composer Bennett Salvay for the first film in the series (the similarity of their names is just a coincidence), and Jeepers Creepers 2 would be their fourth collaboration. Salvay already had a long, but sparse career as a television composer, occasionally venturing into a feature film project. The original Jeepers Creepers production had remained his first major assignment in several years, and he once again was inactive in between that project and Jeepers Creepers 2. Salva has stated that he was comfortable working with Salvay's style of atmospheric scoring, but wanted something more meaty for Jeepers Creepers 2. Just as the "Creeper" flies through the skies in pursuit of its victims, an "airborne" score is what Salva wanted in the music's pacing and instrumentation. Several textural aspects of the work define its character, digging at the primordial nature of the villain without making much attempt to address the hunted protagonists with any clear identity of their own. That alone says volumes about the level of character development in the story.
