Jeepers Creepers
(1) BEATNGU, which was an abbreviation for the words, "Be eating you." Give yourself a bonus point if you remembered what Darry thought the letters stood for ("beating you"). (2) They were driving through the state of Delaware. (3) Trish thought she would die on the same highway when she heard the story of Kenny and Darla. (4) She claimed that he couldn't see anything past the point of his own, selfish "little" existence.
(5) Calling the police is always an option. The reason why they chose to turn back was because it was the right thing to do.

(6) Darry went into the sewer pipe to investigate the noise he heard. (7) Yes, it was. (8) A piece of petrified wood. (9) The head of the trooper who was decapitated (10) Fear was what enabled the creature to sense what was inside a person. The organs it needed had to be somewhat compatible to its own, so it chose its victims carefully.


Mimic
The males were lighter in color and they had no wings.
 
Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

and then sound it out.

2. Were the kids driving through the state of Florida, Delaware or West Virginia when they encountered The Creeper?

3. If you're still not familiar with how this next question works, we provide an excerpt from one of the film's feature commentaries. Your task is to identify the scene (or, as is the case here, the reference) based on that excerpt. It's that simple.


Victor Salva: "Most horror films are so predicated on girls or women dying (so) we dropped that on purpose to sort of mislead the audience. That's kind of our first red herring."

4. Everyone has their own little faults and flaws. That's what makes us human. If someone asked Trish to name one of Darry's, she'd probably mention this one first because it was the one that bothered her the most.

Mimic
Guillermo del Toro, 1997
The license plate game that Darry (Justin Long) and Trish (Gina Philips) played in the film's opening sequence had only one rule - whoever called it first, got it. If you want this one, you'll have to tell us what you saw on The Creeper's (Jonathan Breck) plate
Do you know what you get when you cross breed termite and mantis DNA? We do - a deadly new species of insect that can mimic its prey. That would be us. Our plan to exterminate the buggers involves separation through identification. Remove as many of the males as you can from the nest, and you'll limit their numbers. The problem is distinguishing one from the other.
Victor Salva, 2001

5. Suppose you saw what Trish and Darry saw when they drove past the old church. Would you turn back? We'd like to think you'd at least call the police, but that wasn't an option, or was it?

6. "You know the part in scary movies where somebody does something really stupid, and everybody hates them for it? This is it." What prompted those words?

7. Darry asked his sister to holler into the pipe as loud as she could if The Creeper returned before he got out. Now, one person may have escaped if she did that, but not both. So the question is this, was that just to give him enough time to hide?

8. When Darry described what Kenny's body felt like that got us thinking… what if someone who was blind fell into the same sewer pipe? They might mistake one of The Creeper's victims
for this.

9. Hit the pause button at the end of chapter 14 (Nightmare Road) and tell us what you see... nothing, right? The screen went black (twice) when The Creeper closed the door to his truck. What did he forget?

10. Tina (Amanda Wyss) discovered one of Krueger's (Robert Englund) scare tactics when he sliced off a couple of his own fingers in the first Nightmare on Elm Street. It was fear that gave Krueger his power. The more frightened someone was of him, the stronger he became. So he did whatever he had to (including mutilating his own body) to elicit that fear. Why did The Creeper need to scare his victims?
