CREEPERS 2 LIKE HITCHCOCK?
In a recent interview, director Victor Salva talked about Jeepers Creepers 2 and how he was inspired by numerous Alfred Hitchcock movies...
'Victor Salva, writer and director of the upcoming supernatural sequel film Jeepers Creepers 2, told SCI FI Wire that he set his movie mainly on a school bus stranded in the middle of the country, beset by a winged supernatural creature. 'At one point I said it felt like we were shooting 12 Angry Men in a toothpaste tube with a monster outside,' Salva said in an interview.'
'In the sequel to 2001's sleeper hit film Jeepers Creepers, the creature is nearing the end of its 23-day feeding cycle, when it focuses on a busload of high-school basketball players, cheerleaders and students as his next victims.'
'My template was [Alfred Hitchcock's 1944 classic film] Lifeboat, which I love, because Hitchcock pulled off this amazing drama on this little boat with 12 people, and you never get off the little boat,' Salva said. 'And The Birds, which I loved as a kid. ... But there's [also] a big piece of Moby Dick in it, too,' he added, referring to a farmer played by Ray Wise (Twin Peaks). Wise plays a man who has an obsession with the creature, called the Creeper, because the monster abducted his young son.'
Jeepers Creepers 2 opens Aug. 29. Visit the official site here.
