ITN Distribution has acquired the rights to worldwide distribution for the highly anticipated horror / psychological thriller "The Evangelist" with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and eOne Entertainment releasing the film in the US & Canada.



On May 9th 2017 Enter the sadistic world of The Evangelist, a bible-quoting serial killer who has a small NJ town gripped with fear. Is he the same maniac from the past continuing his moral cleansing or a new, merciless angel of death.

Thirty years later, Bill has grown up and appears to be a model citizen, spending his days cleaning his house and baking. He has, however, picked up the mantle of the Evangelist, killing those who he finds wicked and evil and leaving a bible by their bodies. Bill only opens up to Dr. Laura Cooper (Artese), a psychiatrist, who discovers Bill's dark secret. She contacts young Detective Edward Legros (Billy) who is working on the case with his cynical, veteran partner, Detective John Vance (Bollinger). But what Vance knows about the original Evangelist will lead to a bloody showdown.

"DEPLORABLES" WILL MAKE PURGATORY GREAT AGAIN!

****
This Award Winning Team Always Sends Me To Hell & Back

Reporting By: James Edstrom
****


THE DEPLORABLES




Diamond Jesus Productions announced today that production of the new comedy web series, The Deplorables will begin shooting late Spring and will be released on digital platforms in the Fall/Winter.


Millennial mailroom slacker Michael Cheevers dies and is sentenced to Purgatory, to work in …the mailroom. There he meets his flirtatious manager, a demoted St. Peter, a disgruntled secretary and the Boss’ Son (Jesus). Together this dysfunctional team must stop a greedy real estate developer from taking over Purgatory and deporting them to Hell. But can these snowflakes actually work hard to stop him or will they just complain?


The Deplorables is based on the film Stuck in the Middle, which won Best Comedy Feature at the Atlantic City Cinefest Film Festival. Stars Stephen Fontana and Penelope Lagos reprise their award-winning roles. Keith Collins (“The Evangelist”), Edvin Ortega (“Orange is the New Black”), Evonne Walton (“The Jersey Devil”) and Charles Goonan (“Smokers”) have signed on with more names to be announced soon.


The Deplorables was created by two-time Emmy winner Joseph Pepitone. The eight-episode arc was written by Joseph and his brother Billy. “I’m really excited to be heading back to Purgatory with some old friends and some new ones,” said Joseph. “The Deplorables is going to deal with some new issues that Stuck in the Middle didn’t and our goal is to make Purgatory great again. And since no one from Purgatory has told me of the conditions there, I think we can do it.”

THE JERSEY DEVIL PREMIERE'S AT LOEWS LANDMARK

****
This Is The Funniest Independent Film Of The Year!
--James Edstrom
****

Tom Murro With David Chokachi And Keith Collins



The Jersey Devil, a new comedy film directed by Joseph Pepitone, had its World Premiere at the Landmark Loews Theater in Jersey City Wednesday night and there were moments when I thought the legendary old theater wouldn’t be able to withstand the thunderous applause and riotous laughter. I literally thought the house was going to be brought down! This is the funniest independent film of the year!



Written by Pepitone, along with his brother Billy, the script is brilliantly paced, building all the way to an uproarious ending that had the crowd, with included Jersey City political powerhouses, praising the film afterwards.



Lucifer, played excellently by Jack Mulcahy (who seems to be having a devilish good time in the role) is forced to leave the throne of evil due to his term ending. Enter James Burnett, (Keith Collins) who not only takes over the reigns of Hell, but wants to relocate the out of date, third-place netherworld (“Even Puragatory has bigger numbers”). With Richard Cooper (Edvin Ortega), his Devil’s Advocate by his side, they settle on Jersey City, New Jersey after a hilarious location search. An incensed Lucifer follows James to the “swamps of Jersey” to get his throne back and return Hell to its rightful home.
