IFC Midnight shared this opening sequence from Loved Ones director Sean Byrne’s heavy metal horror film, The Devil’s Candy, which is now in limited theaters and on VOD platforms through IFC Midnight.
Pat Torfe says, “Byrne continues being sweet with The Devil’s Candy,” while Luiz calls it an “occult delight!”
In THE DEVIL’S CANDY, Jesse, a struggling artist, moves with his wife and daughter into their dream house in rural Texas, the price driven down by the property’s dark past. Their lives soon begin to unravel as the demonic forces lurking in the house take hold of the young family. Jesse’s paintings take a satanic turn while the family is plagued by Ray, the deranged son of the former owners. Soon it becomes clear that Jesse and Ray are both being influenced by the same dark forces and that Jesse and his family aren’t safe from its former inhabitants or indeed from the devil himself.
The film, written and directed by Byrne, stars Ethan Embry, Shiri Appleby, Pruitt Taylor Vince and Kiara Glasco. It was produced by Keith Calder and Jessica Calder for Snoot Entertainment LLC (Blair Witch, You’re Next, The Guest).
