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 Enter James Burnett, (Keith Collins) who not only takes over the reigns of Hell, but wants to relocate the out of date, third-place netherworld (“Even Puragatory has bigger numbers”).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.
