When filmmaker Sean Byrne’s criminally underrated debut feature The Loved Ones was released a few years ago, we fell in love. The film was fiercely intelligent and ferocious.
Often, when a filmmaker makes such a strong debut it’s easy to worry that there could be a sophomore slump. With the spellbinding and strangely satanic The Devil’s Candy, Byrne not only didn’t fall victim to any slump, he’s been added to our short list of filmmakers who truly get and respect the horror genre and its audiences.
In The Devil’s Candy, a struggling painter is overtaken by satanic forces after he and his family move into what they thought was their dream home in rural Texas.
Starring another CFF favorite, Ethan Embry (Empire Records, That Thing You Do) and Shiri Appleby (Roswell), The Devil’s Candy is a critically acclaimed film with a metal AF soundtrack and one of the creepiest performances we've ever seen by the great Pruitt Taylor Vince.
