Carny, also known as Jersey Devil in Australia, is a 2009 Canadian television horror film by Syfy and the 17th film in the Maneater Series. The film was directed by Sheldon Wilson and stars Lou Diamond Phillips.
The Jersey Devil appears in quick flash glimpses in the very beginning of the film as it growls. After Cap (Alan C. Peterson) kills the man who sold him the Jersey Devil, Cap and his assistant Quinn attempt to bring the Jersey Devil into the carnival's truck. Cap shoots it with a tranquilizer dart to calm the it down. However, as Cap's assistant heaves on the chains, the beast slashes at his eye, causing it to bleed. Cap eventually shoots it with more tranquilizer darts, which causes the beast to finally pass out.
