The Jersey Devil Movie

Hell has a new exit and by the looks of it, Jersey is about to get even hotter!

“The Jersey Devil” is a new indie comedy about a new devil taking reign over the underworld and his attempt to revamp its image. After an extensive search, he decides that relocating to Jersey City, New Jersey was the perfect move for his “makeover.”

HipNJ’s Peter Falzo visited the set of the new movie and sat down with director and co-writer, Joseph Pepitone, and others involved with the film to get the low-down on this “new hell.”

The new devil comes to Jersey City with the mindset of making hell “cool, sexy, and edgy”, and this idea represents how Jersey City is in the midst of its own rebirth.   The city welcomed the opportunity to host the film’s production, and the cast and crew were able to shoot on-location in JC’s prime landmarks:  City Hall, New Jersey City University, and The Landmark Lowes Jersey Theatre, where our interview took place.

The film’s Garden State pride extends to its talented actors.  Clifton native Keith Collins, also known as “The New Devil”, said it the best: “Jersey is my home and home is where the heart is. So what place is better to shoot a film about Jersey than Jersey itself?”

To stay updated on “The Jersey Devil”, like them on Facebook and check out the full synopsis and cast and crew information on IMDb.

Governor Richard J. Codey

Not many people express how proud they are of their hometowns quite like Governor Richard J. Codey.  The Orange, New Jersey native and the Garden State’s 53rd governor sat down with HipNJ’s  Lisa Marie Latino to give her a “slice” of his home town.

In his 30 plus years in the legislature, Governor Codey has become one of New Jersey’s fiercest mental health advocates, spearheading countless improvements that have led to better mental health care throughout the state of New Jersey.  He also passed the the Smoke-free Air Act, which banned the use of tobacco products indoors.  

When he’s not busy fighting for the rights of New Jersey’s citizens, he’s running his family’s funeral home, with locations in Caldwell and Boonton.  You can also find him coaching sports and relaxing with his beloved family.

Governor Codey entertained us at his favorite Orange hangout, Star Tavern “World Famous” Pizzeria.   Find out now how growin’ up Jersey helped shape him into the man he is today.
