It premiered at Fantastic Fest way back in 2015, and after sitting on the shelf for more than a year The Devil’s Candy is finally getting a release courtesy of IFC Midnight. The first trailer for the film has arrived, featuring an artist (Ethan Embry) who moves his wife (Shiri Appleby) and daughter (Kiara Glasco) into an isolated house with a horrific history.
Written and directed by Sean Byrne (The Loved Ones), The Devil’s Candy also stars Pruitt Taylor Vince. It will be in select theaters and on VOD on March 17th.
A not-so-average family wrestles with Satan in a house from hell in this heavy metal-charged shocker from the director of The Loved Ones. Diehard metalhead and struggling artist Jesse (Ethan Embry) moves with his wife (Shiri Appleby) and daughter (Kiara Glasco) to a middle-of-nowhere Texas town, unaware that the new house they got for an unbelievable deal comes with a grisly history. Disturbing demonic goings-on culminate with the appearance of Ray (The Walking Dead’s Pruitt Taylor Vince). He’s the home’s former resident, and he’s here to do the Devil’s bidding. The cranked-to-eleven soundtrack blasts Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, and a thunderous original score by doom rock legends Sunn O))).
