...Jeepers Creepers (2001)

At one point in Jeepers Creepers, the female protagonist says to her brother something to the effect of, "You know those parts in scary movies when someone does something stupid and everyone hates him for it - well this is one of those parts." It's true that Jeepers Creepers has any number of those parts but the film works because the monster is scaringly good with an interesting back story. And who wouldn't love a movie that uses the Paul Whiteman and his Swing Wing version of the song Jeepers Creepers in this day and age as opposed to some new version with a male rapper and a female chorine.
