THE DEVIL'S CANDY Whets Our Appetite With Sizzling First Trailer

After an excruciatingly long wait, the first trailer for Sean Byrne’s sophomore effort finally arrives. Lo and behold: The Devil’s Candy, a knowing homage to the Satanic thrillers of the eighties that sparked buzz when it premiered in Toronto’s Midnight Madness (2015) before taking the world by storm on a seemingly never-ending festival tour that lasted all throughout 2016.

The Devil’s Candy, a carefully-plotted thrill ride that packs a rich color palette, a pulsating heavy metal soundtrack and plenty of strong performances, introduces audiences to Jesse Hellman (Ethan Embry), a painter who gets by on commissions. Not long after he moves his family into a beautiful house tucked away in the Texan countryside Jesse starts painting as if possessed.

His increasingly bleak and disturbing artworks draw the attention of a gallery owner, but his family’s fortune takes a turn for the worse as the devil’s disciple descends upon the happy home.

Does Byrne’s follow-up to The Loved Ones live up to the hype? Check the trailer below and judge for yourself on March 17 when The Devil’s Candy hits select theatres and becomes available on various Video On Demand platforms.

    Wow. Must see for me, but look at Ethan Embry. Lost that weight, got a bit fit and he's either wearing a wig or got plugs or whatever. I've loved him since Can't Hardly Wait, but his performance on Brotherhood and Cheap Thrills sealed the deal. Great actor.

  • Tom

    Very true. All of Embry's scenes in this are great but his interactions with Kiara Glasco are particularly persuasive. Together they form a terrific father-daughter pairing that's easy to root for. Pruitt Taylor Vince also deserves credit for portraying a perfect villain.

  • ManateeAdvocate

    Aw, good to hear.

    Quite frankly, I find Pruitt Taylor Vince to be flawless in everything I've seen him in. Mississippi Burning was my first experience with him. What a great talent.

    About fucking time! Loved the atmosphere and fantastic use of music when I saw this in 2015 and have been waiting so long to recommend it to friends. Don't be fooled by the generic music in the trailer, this is packing an unbelievable metal soundtrack.

    Looks wonderfully vicious.
