One of the finest horror films to be made about New Jersey since the Toxic Avenger. How about the Toxic Avenger vs.the NJ devil?
This movie has a 1950's flavor to it (minus the trailer sex scene.) The "who done it" aspect which the box mentions never materializes as all evidence, clues, and circumstance lead to Mr. D. (devil). Scooby-doo is a better mystery. Since the "who done it" aspect stank, they should have shown more of the monster killing people in unique ways. Of course that might of added an extra day's shooting. I am not sure why they showed the date as being Halloween when it really didn't enter the story.
The picture on the back of the box of the monster (spoiler alert) carrying a scantily clad woman never appears in the movie.
Parental Guide: No f-bombs, near sex, nudity.

Watched this recently and yes it is ridiculous,confusing,badly acted and with truly appalling dialogue,but at the same time rattles along and never gets boring.The Jersey Devil looks groovy and can turn into that well known inhabitant of the New Jersey forest,a tarantula.I can't believe that Oscar winning Cliff Robertson had a hand with the writing,and if you think unconvincing day for night was a thing of the past,look no further.In all an enjoyable bad movie that's worth buying if it's cheap.You won't want to keep it though!
