What Really Happened That Night In The Woods?

On December 15, 1995, a four-man team from the cable-access program "Fact or Fiction" braved the desolate New Jersey Pine Barrens, determined to deliver a live broadcast of the legendary monster, The Jersey Devil.

Only one came out alive.

It took the jury 90 minutes to sentence the lone survivor to life in prison.

One year later, filmmaker David Leigh decided to mount his own investigation. Convinced that the man convicted of these terrible crimes was innocent, Leigh proposes the murders were committed by someone - or something - else. Could the Jersey Devil still haunt the barrens?

Often imitated (The Blair Witch Project debuted a year later) but rarely celebrated or seen, The Last Broadcast is many things: an inventive internet-era mystery, an atmosphere horror film, a clever 'mockumentary' satirizing 'Reality TV' creators, parasites and sycophants. It unreels as a documentary comprised of interviews and 'found footage' shot by those who were savagely murdered in the dead of night.

The tangled web of psychic and psychotic behavior, backwoods menace, brutal death and buried secrets creates its own brand of spidery terror. And at the center of that blood-spattered web lurks the horrific truth behind... The Last Broadcast.
