The Devil’s Candy is a kick ass heavy metal horror film delving deep into satanic horror directed by Sean Byrne (The Loved Ones). Jesse, a struggling artist, moves with his wife and daughter into their rural Texan dream house, the price driven down by the property’s mysterious dark past. Their lives soon begin to unravel as the demonic forces lurking in the house take hold of the unsuspecting family. Jesse’s paintings take a satanic turn while the family is plagued by Ray, the deranged son of the former owners. Soon it becomes clear that Jesse and Ray are both being influenced by the same dark forces and that Jesse and his family aren’t safe from its former inhabitants or indeed from the devil himself.
Michael Yezerski’s incredible score takes its cues from heavy metal but delves far deeper into the underground, offering up semi industrial soundscapes interlaced with piercing guitars and tonal attacks that would make Sunn O))) proud. It’s intense, focused, raw, and scary as all hell. Artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin.
