The Devil’s Candy (2015) ★★★½

The Devil's Candy


He Will Slither into your Soul.

A struggling painter is possessed by satanic forces after he and his young family move into their dream home in rural Texas.


Director Sean Byrne is undoubtedly a die-hard heavy metal music fan. There’s some killer heavy stuff in every one of his movies to date.

The Devil’s Candy is impressive at its lean 80-minute runtime. Goes to show directors can craft really good movies in under an hour-and-a-half. This movie is well-paced, has an extremely dark atmosphere and Pruitt Taylor Vince makes one hell of a creepy bad guy in this. Ethan Embry as Jesse looks sort of Christ-like, especially at the end of this film. And since it revolved heavily around Satan, perhaps that’s intentional and, if so, well done!

🤘, Mr. Byrne! Keep them coming!

★★★½ (out of 5)
