The Creeper is back, and he's brought his appetite with him in director Victor Salva's sequel to his popular 2001 sleeper. Stranded on the dreaded East 9 Highway while returning home from winning the championship game, a group of basketball players, cheerleaders, and coaches quickly realize that there's more to fear than a broken down bus when The Creeper descends mercilessly upon them. As his 23-day feeding frenzy draws to a close, The Creeper needs the sort of nourishment only a vital group of young athletes can provide, and to survive the night, the terrified teens will have to fight to their dying breaths. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Pretend there never was a first movie. If you must remember it the sequel is still much better. The creature is a great character with much potential for another installment. The effects of the creature were also quite impressive to me. I really liked the head removal and regrowth scene. One character, the "father" is a familiar actor (Laura Palmer's father from Twin Peaks) and does his usual good job at being the bereaved parent. Also, why must every movie ever made be worthy of oscar nominations? ALL movies are predictable, there are no "new" stories, just variations. They are made for one purpose, to entertain, and this one did just that for me.
I didn't expect much from this movie because the first one was bad, but this one was so much better. The creature was cool and scary looking. The "father" was POed and wanted revenge. I liked the physic teenage cheerleader because I wanted to find out why the creature was the creature and what it was. Cool wings and great flying and combat scenes.
I rented this immediately after watching the first Creepers. Let me keep this brief by listing a few adjectives that come to mind for both movies:
ORIGINAL, SATISFYING, IMAGINATIVE, WELL MADE, UNIQUE VILLAIN WITH WINGS - IT FLIES!, CLEVER CAST, JUSTIN LONG!, GRUESOME ENOUGH - BUT NOT TOO SICK, ---SUSPENSEFUL, THRILLING, AND SCARY!
I suggest rent I and II for a movie night at home.
