EDITOR’S NOTE: We shared a preview last year for this movie. Check it out.
A vehicle crash in the Pine Barrens led to a Kelsey’s (Madison Ekstrand) disappearance and locals blamed it on the infamous Jersey Devil. Then, on the anniversary of the crash, Sarah Franklin (Sasha Anne), the cousin of the missing girl, and Alex (Evan Adams), Kelsey’s boyfriend, head off to the crash site to discover what really happened.
Hey — there’s Joe Estevez as the old man warning those teenagers not to ask too many questions. You know, if the last time I was in a town I watched someone get their arm torn off and a monster drag my friend into the woods, I probably wouldn’t go back.
Dale Fabrigar also directed the genre-hopping D-Railed, which was a pretty good time. Written by executive producer Suzanne DeLaurentiis, Tricia Aurand (Middleton Christmas) and Sandy Lo, this film feels like it’s searching for what it wants to be. It has a great creature, an interesting set-up and then struggles to put it all together. It’s not the worst film you’ll find on streaming, but it may be a bit frustrating because it gets so very close to being a good movie.
