Lou Diamond Phillips vs. The Jersey Devil

Lou Diamond Phillips has played a sheriff that fought winged killers in Bats and a cop hunting a devilish psycho in The First Power. Now La Bamba is going to need all his monster-policing prowess if he’s going to survive an encounter with “The Jersey Devil” in the new creature feature Carny.

When a traveling carnival comes to a rural Nebraska town, the caged attraction everyone is talking about is the alleged Jersey Devil. When the beast escapes, tearing the citizens to shreds, local sheriff Sam Atlas (Lou Diamond Phillips) steps up to form a tracking team. But the carnivorous fugitive is only one of Sam’s problems. The local pastor, enraged by the death of his son at the hands of the beast, has plans for igniting his own brand of hellfire and revenge.

You know when I think “Jersey Devil”, I usually think Nebraska, and when I envision guys with the last name “Atlas”, I think Lou Diamond Phillips. The people behind this movie need to just get out of my mind because this is getting eerie.

Screamers: The Hunting‘s Sheldon Wilson directs from a script by first-time writer Douglas G. Davis for this Muse Entertainment production being distributed by RHI Entertainment. I know this will come as a total shock to all, but Carny is a Sci Fi Channel original movie. Bet you didn’t see that coming?

We will all see it coming this Saturday night at 9 Eastern/8 Central when Carny premieres on the soon-to-be Syfy. Will it be worth tuning in for? Check out the trailer below and decide for yourself.
