"The Devil's Candy" Blu-Ray Review (IFC/Shout!Factory)
Metal rules … but Hell is eternal.
A family faces off with evil itself in a house from hell in this hard-rocking shocker from Sean Byrne, the director of The Loved Ones.
Diehard metal-head and struggling artist Jesse (Ethan Embry, Cheap Thrills) moves with his wife (Shiri Appleby, UnReal) and daughter (Kiara Glasco) to a rural Texas town, unaware that the house they got for an unbelievable deal comes with a grisly history. Their dream home turns into a nightmare as disturbing demonic occurrences culminate with the appearance of Ray (Pruitt Taylor Vince, Identity), the home’s former resident who’s destined to do the devil’s bidding. Featuring the music of Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, and Sunn O))), The Devil’s Candy is "the complete midnight movie package … characters to root for, narrative, and a spot-on mix of scares [to] mess with your head", (Collider)!

California, Mojave Desert, 1998. A strange glow appears in the sky. Sam, a forty-something door-to-door salesman, travels through the few inhabited zones of the Californian desert in search of clients, yet everything seems deserted.

Alone and without human contact for days on end, he listens continuously to a talk-show on the only local radio station. The host, a man named Eddy, takes calls from listeners who share their thoughts on a child killer at large in the area. At the same time, Sam starts getting psychologically harassed by strange threats he receives on his pager. Gradually, people begin to reappear and attempt to kill him.
