Quite possibly the world's worst movie
28 October 2002 | by LAINEYORNSee all my reviews

I was duped into believing this was a historical movie of the Jersey Devil. There was not one drop of history to this movie. It was all made up and poorly done at that. The acting was horrific, and I cannot believe "Benson" would have given it the time of day after reading the script. There wasn't one joke that was funny and the Jersey Devil himself looked like he was made out of wood. People walked out after the first five minutes of the movie, and those who stayed laughed throughout the rest at how bad it was. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt and tortured myself to watch the whole thing, but it never got any better. Thumbs down to who ever funded this movie.
