About

THE SYNOPSIS - It has been a year since Tommy's daughter Jamie drowned in the small mysterious lake known as "The Blue Hole". Her body was never found and locals say "The Devil" pulled her under. But Tommy doesn't believe in "monsters", especially "The Jersey Devil". However, that may change when he receives a letter from Jamie, begging him to find her. A letter apparently sent in 1909.

THE LEGEND - Since 1735 in the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey, a legend has been passed down from generation to generation. The legend of a hellish serpent beast known as The Jersey Devil. Through the years the Jersey Devil legend has surpassed the ranking of "local urban legend", to gaining popularity throughout the nation. The Jersey Devil has been featured on several televised shows and a few attempts have been made to bring him to the big screen. However, all seem to lack either authenticity or loyalty to the myth. Each film, approaching The Jersey Devil as a gimmick to sell a silly or plain out unoriginal story. 

That's where this project comes in. We have made our 2 major focuses, STORY and AUTHENTICITY. Without a shadow of a doubt, we have practically heard everything there is to know on the Jersey Devil. Being a group of Jersey Boys/Girls (No not the idiotic fist pumping kind), the "Devil" has always been a part of our history. So keeping true to those legends is not even an issue. Now about the story! Yeah we could easily tell a traditional story of "a group of teens getting lost in woods" or "hunters going to find evidence of the jersey devil". But seriously, isn't that just way to obvious and more importantly, the "same ol' horror story"? Therefore, we dug deep and developed a story that can hold it's own and still pay tribute to the legend of the Jersey Devil. A spine-tingling tale we are all excited to tell.  So please join us our this fantastic ride!

THE TEAM - A little background of how we came to be. To date, we have produced 2 feature films, 1 Documentary, and 9 short films. With our 2 features and documentary each gaining distribution. Our debut amateur film DEADHOUSE was our first and humble attempt at making, what we considered, a fun little film. We put ourselves in some debt and gathered some friends to spend the summer of 2004 filming a movie we thought no one would ever see. Then to our amazement, the film was picked up for international distribution and released in major retail stores worldwide via Brain Damage Films. Soon after DEADHOUSE was picked up, we got serious about filmmaking and began to restructure the company which we would grow to call the "2nd generation" of SHATTERED DREAMS PRODUCTIONS. This would begin a long journey which recently arrived at the door of great american author STEPHEN KING. In 2010, we obtained the rights to produce a 43 min. short based on his 9/11 story featured in his book JUST AFTER SUNSET. A film that has been proudly screened at Film Festivals around the world. You can and view the BEHIND THE SCENES footage and THE THINGS THEY LEFT BEHIND Trailer here:
