I remember reading about spring hill jack years ago and thought it would make a really creepy movie. Still do.

Bout damn time.  Took 25 years to get that spring back in my step.  Granted, I was only newly removed from the womb when last the straights caught sight of me, but I finally did nab that old shadow of mine.

I always did like to play the rake.  From here on out, you'll never catch me off my heel, or flatfooted at that.  Not with this arch of Zeus, at any rate.

I have always loved the Spring Heeled Jack legends. This is extremely interesting.

Isn't Jeepers Creepers supposed to be loosely based around the Spring Heeled Jack legend? If you haven't seen the movie, you haven't missed much.

Male.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Just checking.

I use to live in Ewell, the area they say they saw it is quite brightly lit so they should have got a pretty good look at it.  Very interesting

Haven't seen it. I like to see creepy done right. Not horror just creepy, seems like that rarely happens. At least for me. I remember a lot of creepy stuff as a kid, but no doubt that was because I was a kid :)

harleyblueswoman you could of simply typed Spring Heeled Jack into Google, but since you asked I shall reply.

Basically, in Victorian Britain a young woman was walking home one night when she saw a man (now I might be wrong here) leaning against a wall, she walked past and went to her front door but turned around to offer help, the 'man' suddenly jumped at her and started slashing her with claws, breathed fire and tried to kiss her (I believe) her screams alerted other walkers home and the 'man' ran, a few helpers by rushed to capture the 'man' and thought they had when he ran down a dead-ended ally way, but they were shocked when he vaulted the 7ft wall in one jump. The girl wasn't badly injured, just a few scratches, but as far as I know this was pretty much the same events for all encounters. Young girl gets attacks, screams, SHJ runs, escapes by doing impossible acrobatic feats.

That's what I remember without looking it up, I don't want to look it up :P I like using my memory <_<
