Australian director Sean Byrne’s festival favorite The Devil’s Candy hits theaters on March 17th
Australian director Sean Byrne blew minds right off the bat with his malevolent “John Hughes goes to Hell” melodrama The Loved Ones, but his latest offbeat horror film The Devil’s Candy is even wilder. IFC Midnight will release The Devil’s Candy on March 17th in theaters and on VOD and via digital platforms and today they released the new official poster, a Bernie Wrightson-esque piece of work by renowned illustrator Ken Taylor.
The Devil’s Candy stars Ethan Embry (Cheap Thrills) and Shiri Appleby (Unreal) and is a heavy metal horror head-trip unlike anything else out there.
Synopsis: 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))).
