13th Child: Legend of the Jersey Devil Review


People are being killed by someone or something using superhuman strength. A clever DA Assistant is sent to investigate. Is this just a way to commit the perfect murder or will the legend of the Jersey Devil prove to be true?

The story of the Jersey Devil originates back to the 1700’s in the forests of the southern New Jersey Pine Barrens. Locals have reported savage and unsolved murders that they can only attest that the Devil has done. Hence the Jersey Devil was born.

The 13th Child is one of the most boring movies I have seen. The story is that a young tribesman was the 13th child born to this tribe and therefore bore the incredible power of shape shifting. Now a white boy seeing this reported him as evil. The child was then hanged and upon his last moments he transformed into what has now become the Jersey Devil. He beheaded the hangman and has become the source of numerous cases of horrible murders for the last 300 plus years.

There is one crazy man in a mental asylum claiming to know the true real story of the Jersey Devil. The investigator who investigates the murder scenes does a horrible job. The dramatic pauses in the movie are killers in themselves. I highly recommend this movie not to be viewed at any cost.
