    Yesterday I picked up Jeepers Creepers. Went to watch the movie and it will not play on either of my DVD players. these are a Pioneer Elite DV-37 and a Sony DVP-7700. If I select wide screen it just hangs, then if I select full screen the banner comes on saying it is formatted for the size of my TV but then just stops there. I can see the player just go back and forth like it is searching for a starting point.

    The DVD does the same in both players. All my other DVDs play just fine.

    Is this a bad DVD or what??

    Anyone else have this DVD and does it play in either format?

    thanks

    Dennis, I had the same problem. The movie would freeze on Toshiba and JVC DVD players. I exchanged the disc and I am happy to say with the new disc, I have no problems. I recommend to exchange your copy for another.

    I had this problem with two diffrent copies of Jeepers Creepers on my pioneer 440.At first I thought it had something to do with the parental lock feature of this player because it would lock up on the blue screen that showed the R rating, but this feature was turned off and I went through the players menu several tmes and made sure it was still off.The other side of the disk played fine.
