Plot

Three days after the events of the first film Billy Taggart (Shaun Fleming) assists his father by erecting scarecrows in the corn field. After inspecting one of the scarecrows he noticed that it had clawed feet. When the scarecrow suddenly comes to life he runs back towards the farm to call for help, but is intercepted by the scarecrow. As his father, Jack Taggart Sr. (Ray Wise), and his older brother, Jack Taggart Jr. (Luke Edwards), get closer, the scarecrow leaps into the air with Billy, and flies off into the sky.

The following day ("Day 23"), a school bus carrying a high school football team and cheerleaders back from the state championships suffers a blowout. On closer inspection, the tire has been torn apart by a hand-crafted weapon made of bone fragments. Back on the Taggart farm, Jack finds a small knife left by the Creeper with the help of their dog. When his father inspected the knife it inexplicably flew out of his hand and into a nearby lamp.

As the team and the school staff wait for assistance at the roadside, Big K sees something fly through the sky overhead. His teammates dismiss this as a flock of birds and laugh at him. With the bus back on the road Minxie (Nicki Aycox), has a vision of Darry Jenner (Justin Long), the victim from the first film; as well as Billy Taggart, both warning her of The Creepers presence. She then sees how the Creeper blew the tire which in effect strands them alongside the road for a second time. They manage to flag down a passing car, whose occupants say they will notify the authorities further along the way. As one of the coaches, Charlie Hanna, is laying flares on the road, the Creeper grabs him, and flies off with him, though nobody saw what happened.

The bus driver, Betty Borman, becomes worried and says everyone needs to get back on the bus. Once everyone is back on the bus, the Creeper swoops down and flies off with Betty. When coach Dwayne Barnes comes back to the bus and asks Jake what he saw, he responds by saying "She flew away." After having an argument with one of the players coach Barnes is grabbed by the Creeper himself. The teammates tries frantically to save their coach but the Creeper manages to fly off with him anyway. Scotty comes back on the bus, with his coach's blood on his face.

Back at the Taggart farm, Jack Sr. listens in on police reports and hears about two abductions. He then calls his son and decides to go out and investigate.

Back on the bus, Scotty debates with the others on whether they should leave the bus or not, but ends up getting into an argument with a teammate, "Double D" Davis. The Creeper returns to the bus, and signals which student he will attack next. After the Creeper leaves, Minxie collapses, and she sees Darry again, who says that for every 23rd spring the creeper gets to eat for 23 days. Minxie informs the group, telling them that its last visit was purely to pick which people to take.

En route to the bus, the Taggarts finds the car from one of the passers-by that has crashed into a tree. The occupants are missing, with the roof having been peeled off. He radios the students, who are ecstatic that their rescue is imminent. This is short-lived as the Creeper manages to punch through the roof of the bus and grabs Bucky by the head. One of the students manages to impale the Creeper through its head but the Creepers pulls the pipe out, and in the process rips off a portion of its head. When the Creeper tries to fly away he falls back down, smashing all the windows of the bus. The students see the lifeless body of the Creeper on the roof and despite believing it to be dead, it wraps one of its wings around Dante and decapitates him. Assuming it is better to leave the bus, the students step onto the road. The Creeper returns, chasing them across the field. The Creeper kills Jake by hitting him in the head with a knife and then pins Scotty to a tree. Scotty informs his friends that he's sorry, and they manage to finally free him only to have the Creeper swoop down and fly off with him.

Bucky and two other students get back to the bus, but the Creeper grabs Bucky by the head. When Taggart arrives with Jack Jr. and Minxie, who they managed to find along the way he successfully spears it using a harpoon-like weapon that he has equipped his truck with. However the Creeper is not killed, and he removes the harpoon from its torso, and throws it back towards the truck and almost impales Taggart's son in the process. Taggart reloads the weapon, and once again spears the Creeper, but in the process the Creeper destroys Taggart's truck, however the weapon is left intact.

Double D, Rhonda, and Izzy find a truck they saw earlier, but the driver is missing, assuming he was killed by the Creeper. Izzy and Rhonda get in the truck, but Double D's side of the door wont open. The Creeper flies overhead and the three quickly drive away with Double D in the back of the truck. Double D, managed to shoot it with a flare gun but the Creeper continues its chase. Izzy then drives the truck off the road and back onto the fields and pushes Rhonda out of the truck. With the Creeper is only inches away from Double D, Izzy suddenly stops the truck, causing the Creeper to crash into the rear windshield and flips the truck over. With an injured leg Double D crawls back to the truck, but it suddenly explodes. The Creeper pins Double D down, but before it can attack him, Taggart, his son and the other students from the bus arrive, and he shoots it in the head with a harpoon. Taggart then repeatedly stabs it. The Creeper opens its eyes and glares at Taggart and Minxie explains that "its time ran out" after the 23 days, not because it is dead as Taggart assumes.

Twenty-three years later, a group of teenagers drive to Taggart's farm. They are greeted by Jack Taggart Jr., with the scar on his nose from his encounter with the Creeper. Leading them into the barn, the lifeless Creeper is tied to the barn wall. An elderly Taggart Sr. is sat in an armchair looking at the Creeper, armed with a harpoon gun. The teenagers ask when he killed it, and he replies "about 23 years ago". When asked if he's waiting for something, Taggart looks up at the Creeper and says "Give it a day or two."
