Back in January we got the first word on The Jersey Devil, a horror comedy from Joseph and Billy Pepitone that was filmed throughout Jersey City; and now we’re back with the official trailer, artwork, and a few more details.
From the Press Release:

The Jersey Devil and Jersey City, NJ, are a match made in… HELL!! With the support of the FilmJC and the Mayorâ€™s Office, The Jersey Devil was filmed throughout Jersey City early this year. Scenes were shot at several well known locations, including the landmark Loewâ€™s Jersey Theatre, NJCU, and City Hall. Jersey City provided the perfect backdrop for a hipper, more contemporary Hell.
When his term limit comes up, Lucifer, the original Devil, must turn the reins of Hell over to James Burnett. But Burnett has new plans for Hell that include a relocation and changing its image. He enlists his Advocate, Richard Cooper, and his beautiful sidekick, Tori, to find a new home for the damned. After an extensive search, they settle on New Jersey. As construction begins, James implements his plan to gather as many souls as possible so he can challenge the Kingdom. Meanwhile Lucifer, with his wife, Eve, and Advocate, Judas, have arrived in Jersey to put an end to James’ plans. After several failed attempts to stop him, Lucifer turns to a higher power for help.
