Distributor: MGM Entertainment
DVD is a two-sided disk and it's jam packed with "jeeping"
extras. Check it out!
We get the option of watching the film in "Widescreen"
or "Full Screen". Of course, I went with "Widescreen"
and was delighted with the crisp, vibrant and spotless image that rolled
before my eyes. A perfect transfer.
The DVD sports an English 5.1 Surround
sound. The film's many creepy, crawly noises came through very clearly and
the involving score was floating all over my living room. That's a good
thing. We also get these options: "French Stereo Surround",
"Spanish Stereo Surround" and English, French and Spanish
EXTRAS: "Jeepers Creepers, where
did you get those extras?" MGM goes all out here and gives us DVD
fans exactly what we crave!
Commentary: We can access
this audio commentary on Side
the disk. Victor Salva takes us through the ups and downs of making the film.
He also gives us some background info on specific scenes, on the hardships
of shooting in very hot Florida and expresses his feelings about the cast
and crew. Salva gives us a very in-depth commentary and dead time is seldom.
