I think that the jeeper creeper was once a wicked man that dabbled in dark magic but was cursed by some sort of supernatural force.

Honestly, the Creeper is too over powered and that makes him boring. Plus add a magical indestructible truck furthers the non-excitement.

If this creeper ages just like regular people that means that if it ages 23 days when it comes back. it means that it will take 15 of those 23 day springs for it to age one year.

I think people who are trying to figure out in the comment section here how to beat this supernatural fucker are forgetting a huge factor. Even if you are able to slow the Creeper down before his next cycle & manage to stay alive for the next one. And can keep him secluded to ONE area. You still can't kill him, you can't just cut the fucker's head off & that would be the end all be all. Just like Jezabel said in JC1, "He can't be defeated because he has eaten so many hearts that by now he could be described as immortal". Which I think that implies that he absorbs that victim's soul in a weird way. And since it's also implied the Creeper has been on Earth since the dawn of time practically that by now, logically speaking, he's well over the millions mark of people he has eaten. So you'd have to figure out a way to permanently beat the fucker in not just the physical format but phycological, metaphysical & spiritual. Because let's not forget for to be even able to get close enough to him to hurt him with his own weaponry, you'd have to control your fear. Because once you let off that "aroma", you are fucked & the Creeper will hunt you down. And will not give you the opportunity to be able to hurt him after the fact. I hate JC3 like everybody else because there were a lot of things that were not needed. I liked it the way it had started because to this day I'm still terrified of a being like the Creeper. But I do like the addition into the story of potentially finding a way to permanently beat him but it was poorly executed with a badly casted character of an age limit that logically not make it to the next "chapter" of the franchise. Also made zero fucking sense to make a "tie in" movie between 1 & 2. It was pretty understood to what the whole damn franchise was about but what fans really wanted to know was, who the Creeper is as a character, why he does the things he does & how in the fuck would you stop him, if you even fucking could. Which is what makes the franchise so beautiful, the fact the fucker is impossible to beat in any way shape or form.

He is Apollyon first described as the King of the Locust Demons in Revelations ("Every 23rd spring, for 23 days, it gets to eat.") Versus https://extension.illinois.edu/cicadas/13or17year.html
(There is no actual difference between cicadas and locusts,)
Apollyon vide John Bunyan: "So he went on, and APOLLYON met him. Now the monster was hideous to behold; he was clothed with scales like a fish (and they are his pride); he had wings like a dragon; feet like a bear; and out of his belly came fire and smoke; and his mouth was as the mouth of a lion. When he was come up to CHRISTIAN, he beheld him with a disdainful countenance, and thus began to question with him:"---THE PILGRIM'S PROGRESS
Revelations: Revelation 9:11 | View whole chapter | See verse in context
And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

I know what the Creeper is and what I am about to tell you is going to trip you out here goes. If you grew up in the 90s you have heard of a show titled "Unsolved Mysteries" this show would tell the true story of a Crime or Mystery that needs to be solved. Everything in the shows episodes is true, showing and telling in recreations what ever unsolved crimes
authorities needed help with. Well there was a episode that showed interviews from a married couple who told Police that while they were driving in the country side they had came across a weird scene. The two told police a Van had pulled up behind them and began riding their bumper aggressively to the point of panic he would blow his horn and would get close enough to their car to almost ram it. The couple said their speed was almost 80mph and they did their best not to do anything that would esculate the situation not knowing who they were dealing with. Well finally he passed them and speed ahead out of sight. 20 minutes later they came up on a Church where they spotted the Van in the back and viewed a man carrying a bloody sheet to what looked like a hole they quickly went down the road and decided to turn around and investigate more in fear someone may be in trouble, well as they turned around and arrived at the end of the road they see that Van parked and a man switching License Plates, once he was done he quickly took off. The couple went behind the church and found a shallow grave and a bed sheet covered in blood they quickly drove to the nearest Town to inform Police (No Cell Phones like today it was the 90s) They took the Police back to the Church where they discovered what looked like a murder scene. The Cop got the type of Van it was and asked if they remembered what the License Plate numbers were and to his shock they knew both plates the one he changed into and the one before that, when asked how they knew that they informed the Police that they liked to play a game while driving that dealt with making words out of peoples license plates does this sound familiar? The Movie idea was stolen from this Unsolved Mysteries episode, do a Google search and it should come up, this thing was real, maybe not in the same look as the movie bad guy but never the less he was the bad guy in the Van, true story.

I was watching the special features of Jeepers Creepers 2, and the director was asked what the Creeper was. He said that even he didn't really know, but that maybe the Creeper was once human and wanted to live forever. Having to eat people was the price he paid for his immortality.

Well wasn't the reason why he was so aggressive in 2 was because of the beating he took from 3 no? I thought 3 was the prequel to 2 and for those who saw, he did not get to enjoy much of his food in 3 and the amount of time lapse between 3 and 2 was not so long no?

I know I'm hella late to comment on this, but being a huge horror movie buff, I kinda love to theorize, And, IMO, I always thought the Creeper, was an Ancient Pagan God, or Demi god, Of the Vanir, The gods/goddesses of fertility. They lay dormant and require sacrifice to keep the land safe from disease. But, We're in an age where disease in crops can be prevented with pesticides and chemicals, that he wasn't needed and did not get what he wanted, so he punishes them, by taking more than what was originally required. He's decided to bring death and decay on humanity which dared to forget his power. Vanir have always had different spins taken on them, but they do take the form of the scarecrow when they hibernate. I feel that the creeper may be the creators spin on the pagan god, who was far more satisfied with his way, that he wanted to be forgotten so he wouldn't have to go back to only two sacrifices each cycle. It would also make sense why it was always in the spring, the time of rebirth and growth, considering what the god represent, It happens usually around the beginning of the spring equinox, for about a month, the first month of spring. IMO, the reason his dormant time is 23 years instead of just one, is A) dramatic effect. It's far more terrifying to have a long waiting period, in which things can be forgotten, and B) my opinion, Because of his gluttony. Vanir usually only take what they need to survive, and with the Creeper having such intense blood lust, and loving the kill, taking more than he needs, upsets the balance, and in order for the balance to be restored he must rest longer than normal. A curse if you will. From the other Vanir. IMO. Just a thought.

Everyone keeps coming up with these ideas of killing him with volcanoes you're all missing a huge weakness to the creeper he needs to feed if you were to grab him during his hibernation cycle and bury him in a hundred feet of concrete all around him making it massively impossible for him to escape even with his tremendous strength he would not be able to feed probably if you could keep him from feeding at all during one of his awake Cycles he would die at least that's my idea

We haven't had a movie monster able to lead a series like this since the eighties classics (freddy, Jason, predator, alien, chucky...) Jeepers is probably the best most consistently entertaining monster we have today- scary, engaging and mysterious. I hope the movies continue to flesh him out and expand the lore while maintaining the mystery. These movies are all excellent and expand on the previous entry in fun and intelligent ways...

I have a very interesting theory, the jeeper creeper movies could be a reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu. The number 23 was my first clue, he gets to feed every 23 years for 23 days. 23 is always tied in with powerful demons, its even Satan’s number. My second clue was him being called Ancient, as in “Great Old Ones” and the fact that they did not show us the vision they saw when they touched his hand. Cthulhu ate humans but not like a cannibal for food, eating people in Lovecraft’s books gave him psychic powers. Like an invincible truck with mystical booby traps and that he can drive with his mind. Or even regenerating lost limbs, he might not be smelling their fear. Its when your afraid that your mind becomes open and thats what he wants. Your psychic energy, some people are more connected to psy energy than others. They movie writers could be using the character’s own thoughts as to why he smelling your fear as a misdirect, just like not showing us the vision in the 3 movie. And his victims become psychically attached to him after he’s eaten them. Showing up only to those that are also psychically open, like the crazy ol gran ma. I think he also ate the psychic in the first move? Then theres his appearance, rubber skin claws thing bat like wings and tenticals coming off his head. Theres actually several different interpretations of artwork for cthulhu and afew look eerily like the jeeper creeper creature. Though the octopus tenticals coming off the front of his face is most common, movie wise using that depiction would be a dead give away. Then the fact that his lair was a church in the first movie, an act of desecration towards another god, One who he predates. And his style of carvings on his weapons and patchwork of bodies is very... mocking the humans, as if to say your only use is decoration.
Well, thats my theory... even if im wrong it does put an interesting spin on watching the three movies over again. What do you guys think?
Edit: also the writers trying to reimagine H.P. Lovecraft’s work could be why its taken so long to get these movies made. There does tend to be alot of stigma surrounding Lovecraft’s work. The Great Old Ones in Lovecraft’s books didnt like humans knowing about them because we werent worthy. Supposedly according to Lovecraft himself, he was not a writer of fiction. But he was a psychic looking into the other realms. He supposedly even proved other realms existed to people and spooky curse of the mummy type tragedies always met those he showed truth too.
