Jeepers Creepers (2001)

33 mistakes

Continuity mistake: About 10 minutes into the movie, when the truck is chasing the 2 college students in the car and starts ramming them, the bumper and the trunk is smashed in. The shot changes and shows the car's rear end and it is in perfect condition. This repeats at least 3 times.

Plot hole: This huge demon monster flies around and is seen by at least 30 people, and the day after this demon kills all these people. Everyone just goes on with their daily life. Where the hell is the FBI and the National Guard, this thing just killed 10 people and there's no search the next day for this demon that killed about 5 police officers?

Other mistake: When Darry is in the basement under the church, Darry is laying on the floor surrounded by a circle of sunlight appearing through the pipe. Then follows a series of cuts between Trish at the open end of the pipe, and Darry. Why do we not see a silhouette of Trish on the floor rather than a perfect circle of light?

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Darry falls down the pipe the ground is clear, and he walks about 10 steps to the body in the sheet. However the wrapped up body should have been at the bottom on the pipe, where the boy fell, unless the body was able to move 15 ft on its own.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The police station that they stop at is in a very out of the way rural community with only a few people in the jail. However, once the demon enters the jail and the alarm is sounded there are at least 20 cops on duty - all at the station in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere.

Add time

Plot hole: Near the end of the film, Trish, Darry and Jezelle have a problem trying to escape from the police station, due to the power being cut. But when the beast flies off with Darry, Trish is outside within seconds despite her starting from the second floor.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When the demon breaks into the jail and the cop is standing behind him. When the camera turns back on to the demon, if you look close you can see the zipper in the left hand side of the demon's suit.

Factual error: When the kids are getting hit from behind by the truck, cut to a side shot of them in the car, the boy's body moves forward, while the girl's body is more properly propelled in a backward motion relative to the car. This happens several times.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Darry and Trish are being followed by the police car back to the Church, the demon rips his hand through the police car roof and cuts the cops head off. Yet a few seconds later when we see the car from above the police car roof is in perfect condition.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the college students pull into the gas station their right tail light is out, but when they are being followed by the cops the left tail light is out.

Add time

Continuity mistake: There are at least two different 1960 Chevys used in this film. There is a noticeable difference in the front bumpers. Notice the front bumper area just below the headlights. The first car used has a plain straight bumper, the second one has little chrome trim riser mounted just below the center of the headlights. The second one first shows up at the cat lady's house. The lower tag pan also changes.

Continuity mistake: When the main characters visit the house of the old woman with the cats, she comes out and aims at the monster with a double-barrelled shotgun, and fires one shot. Then when she goes back into the house, two shots can be heard in quick succession. She must have re-loaded the empty barrel quickly...

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: When the police are following the two kids to the old church, the first shot shows the kids driving but when the camera is slowly going to the cop car on the the door you can see equipment.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After the monster eats the cop's tongue, it's supposed to be the nighttime during the car scene, but the back window on the driver's side is rolled down and as the scenery goes by it is apparently broad daylight.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After the demon crashes into Trish and Dari's car and drives them into the feild, it drives past on down the road. When it cuts to Trish and Dari getting out of the car, you can see behind them the demon driving past them AGAIN and going on down the road.

Add time

Revealing mistake: In the closeup of the demon monster you can see the contact in his eye.

Add time

Other mistake: After the creature flies out the barred window with Darry, you see some bars missing from the earlier intact window, but where some of the bars are missing, there are intact bars surrounding it. The creature couldn't make a hole in two different places while flying out.

Continuity mistake: When they are in the dirt field one of them says, "Its getting dark." But in later scenes it is lighter and then it gets darker. This happens a few times.

Add time

Other mistake: When the guy with the stitched up chest dies, Darry starts walking back towards the pipe. In the next shot, it looks as if he's turning around and not walking towards the pipe. It was obviously taken from the previous shot before he saw the stitched up guy.

Add time

Factual error: When the Creeper eats the policeman's heart, there is nothing blocking the hole - the tissue above the heart should have collapsed downwards.

Add time

Plot hole: The whole point of Darry going down the pipe near the beginning was because he couldn't see the bottom of the pipe. However, Trish can make out his shock when he notices the body. Darry's flashlight is not providing the light in this scene as the light is coming from the tunnel.

A Demon

Other mistake: When the Demon has just ripped the tongue out of the police officers head, and he has eaten the tongue, when he is finished he puts the head in the back of his truck. Where on earth did his truck come from?

Add time

Plot hole: Since when do hell-born freaks have an intuitive knowledge of mechanics? And where did he get the turbo engines and various add-ons needed to reach such high speeds? It's a small rural area and it would look pretty odd if he just strolled into an auto shop and piled the stuff into a trolley.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the Creeper bumps their car at the early stages of the film, the boy turns his head to the left to see the back. Then suddenly the camera angle shifts and we see him turn his head to the right this time to see the back, which of course he couldn't have done that quickly.

Add time

Factual error: When the Creeper takes Darry, they are on at least the second story of the building. However Trish can get out to the front of the police station in the time it takes the police to get from one side of the room to the other.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When the car is skidding out of control, it comes to a stop, camera changes and it comes to a stop again having rotated another 180 degrees.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: Darry walks towards the light at the end of the tunnel. He then has to turn round to look up the pipe. He shouldn't have to turn round as he was facing the pipe when walking towards it.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: There is one shot, just before we see Trish and Darry talking to the police, where the car is in mint condition despite being wrecked earlier.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When Trish is trying to persuade the Creeper not to take Darry she is crying, tears streaming down her face - towards the end when it cuts back to her, she has a perfectly dry face.

New this month Suggested correction: She could have wiped her face when the camera wasn't on her. This doesn't take much time.

Audio problem: When trying to hit the creeper with the car, the distance between them and the creeper changes drastically, instantly.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: Darry falls into the church basement and has a rip in his shirt with a patch of dirt on his chest. Camera cuts to Trish and back and the dirt has gone.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: In an early shot, Trish is shown trying to shift a floor mounted manual transmission lever in their car. But you can see the automatic transmission level on the steering column, and it is also in the "park" position.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Darry and Trish are in the police station and they meet Jezelle, Darry and Jezelle are sitting down and Trish is standing in front of them. Trish's hair is covering her face in the wide shot, but when it cuts to a close-up, her hair is behind her ear.
