His weapons are connected to him somewoh right?, so theres no way to kill him lets say it gets torn apart and put miles away from each piece.. I think his weapons are a part of him and can regenerate we saw how he called the axe with his hand, and how theyre made of bones and skin, what if thats his own blood and skin to regenerate whenever

So human sure shurikens, flying knives, and super ax's are totally explainable. But the car mines are just baffling. If the 1st things are made with magic you can probably guess the last one is also

What if it was a man in the middle ages who became a demon or a wendigo.
So presumably it is at least 500 years old. Possibly a 1,000 years.
Or is it something primordial ?

this is what i feel like he is: a gargoyle-ish demon from another realm that likes to pick out certain things about a person on a spiritual level that he wants to take from them. also, it looks like he's from the blacksmith demonic class that can make his own special weapons. he reminds me of the character rodin from bayonetta 2. rodin turns into a similar demonic entity that looks similar to him and he builds strange weapons like they are his hobby and makes special designs on them just like the demon in jeepers creepers.
certain fallen angels know how to make weapons etc. i do not think he is some alien from a distant galaxy. he is a blacksmith demon from another realm that likes to take special things from humans on a spiritual level. point blank period. if the creator says hes's otherwise, then his actions and appearance differs from what the creator said.
EDIT: also it is like he is forced to stop killing and put into a hibernation by a superior being. which is very similar to the devil being sealed away along with certain demons until a certain day when they are fully released. i feel like the reason why he has to hibernate because he is forced to. but i do not get how his home stays safe for 23 years. i guess he has it warded with something to keep nosy people away. as smart as he is, i think that's what he does to keep his decked out home and weapons.

Nikolas De Moulin
Nikolas De Moulin - Πριν 7 ημέρες
I think the "creeper" is just a ripoff of an HP Lovecraft creature.

The creature was a demonic being but it was only wings with a claw/hand. It had to lat onto a person which would then distort their body into a monster. And the body was perishable. meaning the demon had to constantly hunt and kill people for body parts to keep it going. If you look at jeepers creepers 2 when he gets a pipe through his head he rips his own head off but you'll see that it had a face hugger looking hand like appendage that released the damaged head and the grasped the new head.
so I think it's just a direct rip-off of a Lovecraft creature. the creature is just the wings and face hugger looking thing and it needs human or animal body parts to give it a greater form.

I'm pretty sure the creepers real form is the weird alien like hand behind the head which is clearly connected to the wings. I do believe the creeperis really this weird parasite from another world or dimension much like cthulhu in the sense of a older anicent being from another dimension. Or perhaps he is a old alien like creature that got stuck here and has bece accustomed to living amongst us. The parasite is a natural predator and is capable of seemingly surviving anything I do think though the creeper since connected to his knife is a being capable of very old ritual like history.

What about the parasitic organism that connects to the back of its head and spine? And its wings? That is The Creeper the rest is "dead human tissue". The Parasite attached itself to an original human and keeps replacing parts. Right?

if the creeper loses a head, how does it eat another head to heal its lost head back? does it die if it loses its head because it cant regenerate its body parts?

His background definitely has some christian aspects to it. In Number 1 he lives in a church and derry describes his lair as a "twisted version of the 16th chapel" plus the title for part 3 was originally titled "cathedral" plus the way hes strung up at the end of number 2 has some strong Christ imagery to it.

Hey guys just wanna give my two cents into a theory (this is coming from the man who played the creature Jonathan breck who is my godfather and good friend of my dad ) breck said that it was a monk who was dabbling in black magic and ended being murdered and executed by the church only to come back as the creature in the film .Again this is just a theory not an official , just heard it from the man himself

I don't remember if I thought of it or read it somewhere else first, but there is the idea that the actual Creeper is the clawed, frilly growth on the back of the head and neck, and the rest of the body is just the composite host it uses to feed. Since the Creeper is able to remove its own head and still function, for at least a few moments, its physiology indicates that the head is just another limb, and not where its sentience lies. So the actual Creeper in this case is very similar to an Alien Facehugger, but instead attaches to the back of the head and overrides the nervous system.

What if, the creeper is actually trying to get rid of a destructive micro organism, that only becomes detected every 23 years for 23 days? And he sniffs people, to try and detect the organism. That’s why he takes most of the bodies, and has them strung up over the roof, to keep the bodies for future research.
